Anne Hengehold founded Clarify Information Services (http://clarifyinfo.com) in 2011. She is the sole operator and refers to herself as being in many roles, from President to Receptionist.
Clarify's specialty is to help engineering and construction experts who are in litigation regarding problems such as product liability and patent infringement. The company provides solutions for improving information within organizations. Anne also does technical and literature searches and product, industry and market overviews.
Her clients are typically referrals from past clients.
Anne says that she is "finding more and more that in addition to the research and document acquisition services, her clients need for specific jobs they're working on, they need marketing and business development information."
Since she does not have a physical collection, "fellow info pros [in SLA and Association of Independent Information Professionals] are hands down the most important resource to [her]. She also uses databases on a pay-as-you go basis and does phone and Web research.
Anne earned her B.A. in 1985 "when term papers were typewritten. A few years later, she pursued an MLIS at Dominican University, graduating in 2002.
Before she was a librarian, she was a radio "DJ" and talk show host in Chicago, which she thoroughly enjoyed. She also headed up scripting and audio production for a company that specialized in voice recordings for corporate phone systems. She still does voice-over work for some of these clients and she has been doing that for 25 years.
As President Elect of SLA Illinois, Anne is responsible for overseeing programming for the chapter and supporting the objectives of the Board. When asked how her work and education prepared her to be President, Anne replied, "The one life lesson that applies: if I dive in, I really do learn to swim."
When she becomes President, a major goal will be to foster involvement in the Chapter. In particular, she wants to encourage underemployed and unemployed members to become more active. "It's a way to feel useful, gain satisfaction, develop new skills, give back and keep in touch with peers."
When Anne is not at work, she is learning a lot about video games from her son, and she relaxes "as an amateur but avid gardener."
The advice Anne would give to a librarian who wants to start her own company is, "Trust yourself, surround yourself with supportive, knowledgeable people, and feel free to borrow my "single-double-triple" rule: draft a single, thoughtful but quick, version of your business plan, then double the money and triple the time you think it will take.

About Anne: While *officially* an "independent information professional" since 2011, Anne Hengehold has been on a trajectory leading to the founding of Clarify Information Services since the mid 80's. By day, she was growing the production side of a fledgling audio services company. By night, prepping for radio interviews with authors and other intriguing thinkers allowed her inner info junky to run wild. Add one Masters in Library Science and Information degree, seven years in a fabulous library at an engineering firm, blend with one corporate implosion, and you have a recipe for the making of an independent info pro. An SLA member since 2005, Anne currently serves as President of SLA Illinois.
