Are you trying to build a company? Are you young and passionate about Entrepreneurship and want to make it big? Well if you are, then chances are you often find yourself in a position where you need that crucial expert advice, that one business decision that could make or break your company’s future is upon you but you are not sure where you will end up being if you took a wrong decision.

These are situations that start-up founders often find themselves in, and it hurts when you have no one you can turn to for advice. Wouldn’t it be absolutely awesome if there was a way to get in touch with some of the top entrepreneurs in the world who could bail you out of your predicament at the last minute and save your company the blushes? Enough talk, here is just the service that does that – a mobile mentorship service by a start-up called Clarity.

Clarity aims to connect young, budding entrepreneurs to some good expert advice. With Clarity’s services you can now talk to an entrepreneur of your choice, one on one, at your convenience, now isn’t that awesome? First let me brief you a little about the company – Clarity was founded by Dan Martell, a young entrepreneur who had already founded two companies before Clarity, namely – Spheric Technologies and Flowtown, came up with the idea for Clarity inspired by his own experiences which he had in his early entrepreneurial life.

“For the first years of my working career, I was still living in my native Canada and I was desperate for advice. I emailed the minister of my province there, he respected that I was a young entrepreneur, and he introduced me to three guys that had built hundred million dollar companies. That was the reason that I moved to San Francisco in the first place …. I know that getting the right advice at the right time can dramatically change and entrepreneur’s life.” – Dan Martell

He has put together a collection of 1000 advisors who are on board for Clarity’s launch, including noted investor and 500 Startups founder Dave McClure, Greylock Partners principal and Twitter and Facebook alum Josh Elman, Startup Weekend CEO Marc Nager, Color and Science labs co-founderPeter Pham, Rypple co-founder Daniel Debow, and lean startup guru Eric Ries.

The best new service for young Entrepreneurs desperate for some quality advice.

The most interesting thing about Clarity is that it establishes a two-way phone calling process in which neither party is aware of the other’s actual phone numbers. The site also requires its users to connect through Facebook, so that there is a layer of identity verification in place already. Founders can browse the Clarity directory through curated topic pages that show each adviser’s expertise, or else they can simply ask a few sample questions into Clarity to get suggestions on who they should speak to. Clarity works for phone numbers throughout the world — in its beta version, it has brokered 4000+ calls from people in more than 60 countries.

“I’ve done about 400 calls myself during the beta, and what people don’t realize is that it’s hard to give someone advice without taking something away from it yourself. I’ll say, ‘Hey, I’m driving on the 101 Highway for 45 minutes, call me if you want to talk about product or marketing.’ You queue the calls, and you get in this rhythm, and it’s actually really energizing. I’ve talked to some entrepreneurs I’d absolutely invest in.” – Martell.

Sitting on your couch and calling a top entrepreneur for crucial advice without having to bend the rules or pursue them persistently to the point that some of them start mistaking you for a stalker, sounds brilliant to me. I must add that there couldn’t have been a better time for such a service to come into existence because the world powered by the Internet has no dearth of entrepreneurs, if anything the number of small and mid sized businesses have only grown in recent years and that gives Clarity an extremely wide customer base to cater to.

If you ask me, Clarity is in a win-win situation because it promises to offer a very critical service which is truly unique in its own right. So much for advice websites, how-to books and Q&A sites, there’s absolutely no substitute for a one-on-one conversation from someone who has been there, done that. Thumbs up if you like this initiative from Clarity.
