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 think 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 home page, 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.Read More

Did you know I offer a personalized, 2 hr one-on-one learning session for job seekers, career climbers or business owners looking to elevate their use of LinkedIn® for career management or business growth? Were you aware that what you do or don’t do, and what you have to say or share on LinkedIn are equally important? Yes, both are true!
During our session, I’ll take you on a deep dive into your LinkedIn profile as well as your current footprint on LinkedIn in general. I’ll show you ways to capitalize on LinkedIn’s functionality to demonstrate your expertise on your LinkedIn profile. And then we’ll review the many ways you can generate leads, exposure and interest via your overall presence on this powerful social networking tool (including groups). The session will be fun and relevant to your industry or specific goals. For example, maybe you want to move into a different industry or switch your target market? Well, I can help you polish and shift your brand on LinkedIn to support that.

“My session with Sandy was invaluable at improving and completing my LinkedIn profile. She showed me how to tailor LinkedIn to my personal preferences and professional goals. I really enjoyed her hands-on approach and we worked on updates and edits during the session as she taught me about all the services LinkedIn provides. She has a wealth of knowledge in how to optimize LinkedIn!”

“The two hours I spent with Sandy discussing my objectives and reviewing my LinkedIn profile were the best, most cost-effective two hours I’ve spent in a long time! Not only is Sandy an expert at virtually every aspect of LinkedIn, but also she makes the entire process fun and enjoyable.
