Jane Rogers, ’77, Business Education

Director-Business Development, The Insight Group

Jane Rogers certainly knows what it means to be an entrepreneur. From 1985-1995, she ran Red’s Frozen Yogurt and Ice Cream stores. From 1999-2001, she worked with O.C. Tanner to create a line of high-end Olympic jewelry, which was purchased by people around the world as a symbol of their experiences during the 2002 winter games. Jane now works at The Insight Group, which is an investment advisory corporation.

Jane believes the right attitude and mindset are crucial to being successful in entrepreneurial endeavors.

“There are some who are born with a sense of adventure, creativity and a willingness to take a risk,” she said. “This innate spirit oftentimes leads them to venture into something that intrigues them and they believe others feel the same and are willing to pay for it. A person with this spirit wants freedom and wants to see the fruits of their own hard labor. This spirit makes the world go around.”

Jane grew up in Salt Lake City. She enjoys golfing and watching the Utah Jazz.
