bookshelf-790392_640

Members of this profession use high-level skills to find,
manage, and communicate information in a multitude of niche
industries, according to the Association of Independent
Information Professionals (AIIP). Industry members may refer
to themselves in a number of ways, including info-entrepreneur or information broker.

Despite the economic downturn over the last several years, the industry has prospered, with some reporting that these past few years have been their best ever.

For instance, take a look at the website of Amelia Kassel. The San Jose University instructor is the owner of a highly successful company, MarketingBase, an author, and member of AIIP.

Kassel offers a comprehensive fee-based mentoring program for prospective entrepreneurs who want to start a business.

Kassel’s website and publications provide an insightful field trip for anyone considering joining the profession.

You’ll also find useful information on the AIIP site on how to enter the field.

    woot, thank you! I’ve finally came acsors a website where the owner knows what they’re talking about. You know how many results are in Google when I check.. too many! It’s so annoying having to go from page after page after page, wasting my day away with tons of owners just copying eachother’s articles ugh. Anyway, thankyou for the information anyway, much appreciated.

  2. Thanks for another informative web site. Where else could I get that type of information written in such an ideal way? I’ve a project that I am just now working on, and I have been on the look out for such information.
