Signup for Clarity

I was born on December 26th, 1979. Today I turned 32, although I still feel like I’m 17. Turning 30 was tough, but the past few years have been the most rewarding times of my life. Last summer I got engaged to a beautiful women and two weeks later we signed a term-sheet to sell Flowtown to Demandforce. Looking back to the successes I’ve had over the years, I realized that it wasn’t my upbringing or education that were critical in my achievements, but in the quality of the advice that I got from some amazing people along the way.

Have you had any of these types of conversations?

That’s why four weeks ago I started a company call Clarity that would enable this activity regardless of someones social status or geographic location. Clarity makes it easy to connect with others looking for advice over the phone. The service is all mobile, is private and secure, has some amazing features that make it fast and delightful.

So for my birthday this year I have one wish.

I’m asking every business owner, community leader and entrepreneur out there to offer one hour of their time – for free or for charity – to give 6 entrepreneurs 10 minutes of advice around their expertise or passion. Each call takes only 10 minutes. All calls are off the record, private (Clarity takes care of connecting both parties) and are filtered for quality.

Here’s how to commit your phone time:
1) Create an account
2) Block out an hour in your calendar January 5
3) On that day, promote your availability on Facebook / Twitter

We’ll be providing updates and instructions leading up to the big day. If at anytime you have questions, don’t hesitate to email me directly, or better yet, call :)

There’s already 300+ of the world best entrepreneurs, venture capitalist and marketers who’ve taken a pledge to give back and I would ask that you consider joining them. It’s only through advice from those who’ve been there before that we truly gain insight into the challenges we face as entrepreneurs.

There’s nothing that would make me happier then to end this day, my birthday, with a 1000+ amazing entrepreneurs giving me the best present I could imagine – their time and advice – for others to enjoy. Please take 10 seconds to sign-up for an event that will certainly move and change their life forever.

Signup here to give me the best birthday present ever.

Remember: It takes a village to raise an entrepreneur.

      Thanks Andy .. it’s just the beginning but I’m pretty set on spending the next few years solving the problem at hand.

    In the short time I’ve known you Dan, you are all about sharing. Sharing your advice and experience with others. Encouraging everyone else to do the same. Most importantly, sharing your passion for life and creativity in problem solving with the world. Enjoy your birthday! (you should also get yourself one of those axes by Best Made Company – they’re amazing!) Inspired as ever.

      I guess it’s because I have a real passion for sharing … kind of makes me think of this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PznJqxon4zE

      Without passion for the problem I probably would’ve given up years ago, but I kept coming back to it. I’m now ready to invest the time to solve it. One step of many ahead.

      I appreciate your friendship Sally!
