As a solopreneur, I occasionally have an idea or conundrum that I wish I could just bounce off someone else. Or, sometimes, there’s a challenge or business option I need to talk through a bit because I’m one of those people that needs to talk to think, as opposed to thinking so I can talk. I’m betting many of you can relate.
In both situations, I’ve often thought how nice it would be to be able to pay an expert or “thought leader,” for 20-30 minutes of their time to help me brainstorm what’s on my mind or a sweet-sounding opportunity I’ve recently come across. And wouldn’t it be great if there was no obligation to officially engage or hire her/him for a minimum amount of time or term length? Yes, it would.
Finally getting some clarity
This is where getting Clarity comes in! Turns out it’s a perfect service for my own needs and I wanted to share it with you for yours. The idea’s simple: once you’re on the Clarity.fm homepage, just search by subject matter for an expert to help you and then request a call with them for however long you need/can afford (up to 1 hour). Here’s a sneak peek at how you can rent someone’s brain via Clarity:
And, yes, starting February 1, 2014, I’m now offering YOU this on-the-fly support as well because I’ve officially been accepted as an “expert” on Clarity. This awesome “on demand business advice” service exists for anyone (with a credit card) to utilize.
I hope you give Clarity a try and if you’re a friend/fan, maybe you’ll consider logging in via LinkedIn and/or Facebook and find/fave my profile to help me get a gold star by my name as shown below (look for the red arrow):
I love it when a plan comes together
Finding this service was kismet because over 10 years ago a former colleague had given her notice to our mutual employer and a few days before she left she said, “What am I going to do without having you available to bounce things off of?! I wish I could just rent your brain and pay with a credit card to get your advice on demand.” So, as soon as I learned about it, I knew I had to get on board the Clarity train because this idea’s time had finally come.
BTW, Clarity even offers a handy little guide for making the most of your time and money when utilizing the service. If you give it a try, please come back and share your experience in the Comments section.
