Key Takeaways: 

  

“Board meetings suck. They’re boring. We could do everything that needs doing in less time that it takes to do a board meeting, so let’s just do it.” – Jane Garvey 

  

“Industry connections. That’s huge. Knowing other people that can help you tell and decide what you’d want to be doing if you’re purchasing something or you’re hiring a contractor.” – Jane Garvey 

  

“I can tell people just from my years of doing this where beginners and people that are not connected with a group are going to trip and fall and get punished big time by the government. Ignorance is no excuse for the government.” – Jane Garvey 

  

“Somebody the other day called me up and said, ‘Jane, you’re the most selfless person I have ever met.’ I don’t know whether it is selfishness or I just haven’t figured out how to monetize anything, but it could be selflessness because I really do spend a lot of time helping people.” – Jane Garvey
