Quick: And you asked that question about what we majored in, and this may not be as true for Tony 00:00:00 - 00:00:05
Quick: but for me I got so involved at such a high level in student government at an early point in college- 00:00:06 - 00:00:13
Quick: and this is definitely true for Tony towards the end of college- 00:00:14 - 00:00:16
Quick: that you majored in something but you also ended up basically just majoring in 00:00:17 - 00:00:20
Quick: sort of people skills and how do you deal with administrators and how do you go down to the legislature and do lobbying. 00:00:21 - 00:00:29
Quick: I mean there are all these other things that, yeah, I had a major in political science 00:00:30 - 00:00:33
Quick: but I ended up probably learning just as much if not more 00:00:34 - 00:00:38
Quick: that helps me now from some of these other things that were going on in our lives. 00:00:39 - 00:00:43
Caravano: That's absolutely true, by lots of mistakes and lots of big events. It's really true. 00:00:44 - 00:00:50
Quick: My mom's a college professor and she used to lament the fact that I was spending so much time in meetings that were not class. 00:00:51 - 00:00:58
Quick: I'd call her and say, "Hey, Mom, I just got out of this meeting with this really cool person." 00:00:59 - 00:01:03
Quick: "It's Jim Goodnight and he's got this huge company and it's so cool," 00:01:04 - 00:01:08
Quick: and her first question was, "Well, how did he get to his company?" 00:01:09 - 00:01:12
Quick: I said, "Well he went to State and got a PhD," and she's like, "Yeah, he actually went to class, didn't he? He did all those things you're not doing right now." 00:01:13 - 00:01:18
