I was just saying to a friend the other day that, apart from singing Stevie Wonder songs, I seem to come up with some of my better ideas in the shower in the morning. I don't think I've managed to solve world peace in there yet but I think most of the things I come up with have more merit than anything that any of the Republican Party presidential candidates have come up with so far. Taking my ideas to the next level is the tricky bit though. How nice it would be to be able to take one or two of those ideas to someone with some serious business experience and ask them a few questions about how to develop them further. Fat chance of that happening, right? Well, maybe now there is a way.

Officehours is a new social feedback app where you can book 10 minutes of online one-on-one consultation time with some of the top professionals around the world. You can run an idea past an experienced mentor and get a second opinion as to whether the idea you had in the shower is a turkey or worth pursuing. If you get some positive feedback, maybe they can tell you the next step to take in order to bring it to fruition.

Just scroll through the impressive list of friendly and helpful advisors in the index and take a look at their bios. Check to see if they have the experience in the field...
