How to get f@#&*cked while being nice

I need to write this one for learning purposes.
About six months ago I came in contact with a father from our kids's swimming lessons. He was looking very pale and stressed and I asked him what was wrong.
He told me that he went bankrupt and that there was no one who was willing to help him getting his new business going.

I would save you the details but to keep a long story short, I reached out to help by coaching and supporting him, his new business and his family. I even gave him my last money so that he could buy food for his family and fill up the gasoline for his car.

I got to work, at his office and soon I found out that he is a short term thinker. Nothing wrong with that when you have someone next to you who levels the field a bit.
But he did not have me at that time, so I went into all those contracts and with a lot of positivity and a bit of luck we changed those for the better.
