Interesting. Provocative. Well-seasoned.

41aN4rbSPvL._SX313_BO1,204,203,200_“Interesting. Provocative. Well seasoned.” This sequence of words passed through my consciousness before reading Treasure Hunt: Follow Your Inner Clues To Find True Success, by Rizwan Virk, and were present again, upon completion. It was then that I recalled the words were from an old food commercial (for what I don’t recall) that I often heard growing up, and they encapsulate many of the concepts, experiences, examples, and sumptuous courses provided within.

Treasure Hunt is “interesting”, and pertinent, to anyone who wishes to makes sense of the “clues” that come to us daily (awake and asleep). Mr. Virk says there is a Treasure Map of information at our fingertips, if we pay attention to the clues. Clues can be recognized as synchronicity, hunches, gut feelings, visions, deja vu, bodily sensations, and dreams. Clues are subjective and each person’s Treasure Map is unique. It is “provocatively” laid out in five sections, with digestible explanations, examples and reasoning (or intuitions). The accessibility of the content, to people searching for there own definition of success and from all walks of life, is “well seasoned” with a personal touch, and warmth, even though it is often explaining esoteric or scientifically complicated concepts.

There are 20 “Treasure Hunting Rules” that are explained throughout. They include – If it repeats it’s probably a clue – One clue leads to the next – Pay attention when you have a big dream – Honor your clues with a concrete action – Ask for a solution in your own way. One of the most delightful aspects of Treasure Hunt is how it combines emotional, religious, and metaphysical views, with those of science and quantum physics. The explanations of how to translate personal experience into the language of business, is most insightful.

The author defines syncronisity as, “the confluence of an inner thought(and/or feeling) and an outer event.” There are strong “Clues” that Treasure Hunt: Follow Your Inner Clues To Find True Success is much more relevant, “interesting, provocative, and well-seasoned”, than the commercial diddy that went through my head before and after the reading of Mr. Virk’s enlightening book.

One Million Clients

Dear Gabriel,

Two significant moments arrived recently. The kick-off in our general election season you no doubt noticed. The other was much more significant for FINCA. Thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, we took a leap towards finding and funding our one millionth client.

This advance against the general election backdrop, made me think of Ronald Reagan and his famous line about relations with the Soviet Union that you may recall or at least have heard about: “Trust – but verify.”

‘Trust – with verification’ is such a perfect summary of FINCA’s method for working with our clients and our donors that it could almost be our tag line!

Trust with verification is the model that has brought FINCA tantalizingly close to sponsoring our one millionth client. It’s the model that has earned us the respect and faith of donors like you, and over 100,000 other Americans.

Since 1985, we have entered into commitments with our clients based on trusting them to establish and manage micro-businesses – in tailoring, food production, craft-work and hundreds of other local in-demand products, by using funds invested by FINCA, with one condition: FINCA verifies that clients fulfill their commitment to us and are repaying their loans on time.

Simultaneously, we have been asking you, our supporters, to trust in our professionalism, expertise and commitment to the poor, particularly financing women entrepreneurs, those who live in impoverished communities, where women are expected to accept a passive or even submissive role. But this has not been blind faith – we have encouraged you to verify the results. And now look: Almost 1,000,000 clients!

FINCA’s results – your results – continue to be magnificent!

Closing in on client one million is, in many respects, the ultimate evidence of our work’s and your support’s impact, durability and success.

Today we are seeking just one thousand people to make a donation of, on average, $100.

Become one of the 1000.

Your donation today should not be made in blind faith. Verify the impact of your support: Meet our clients, hear their testimonies.

Help us find and fund client number one million.

Thank you for your support,

Soledad Gompf
Vice President, FINCA
