Joe Lane is a true renaissance man. As consultant to businesses, he often speaks at regional and national conventions. He took up the business of golf, which led to him running the exclusive Golden Wings Golf Training School for ten years. He’s been flying planes since 1968―and is an instrument-rated pilot. He’s also an accomplished sailor. As a sailboat captain, he ran charters in the Chesapeake Bay for five years. He describes himself as “a decent skier, but a great fly fisherman.” He’s also an insatiable reader, reading as many as 40 novels a year.
Joe has lived all across the globe, from Tampa, Florida, to Columbia, MD, to the Washington, D.C. metro area, to Connecticut, and most recently in China. For nearly eight years, he lived in Zhaoqing City in the Guangdong Province of China, with his wife and partner, Barbara. They’re developing a Chinese chain of pizza restaurants.
