When you get to the end of your life, will you look back with regret or will you feel a sense of accomplishment and gratitude, knowing that you made the most of each and every moment?

In today’s episode of the Achieve Your Goals podcast, Jon Vroman is here to talk about how you can choose to either watch life pass you by OR decide to live life in the front row!

Jon is a loving husband and Dad to 2 amazing boys. After that, he identifies as a social entrepreneur, award-winning motivational speaker, author, philanthropist, podcaster, personal coach, ultra-marathon runner, and founder of Front Row Foundation.

In today’s conversation, we discuss his new book, Front Row Factor: Transform Your Life with the Art of Moment Making. The book is a collection of inspiring stories, compelling science, and life strategies that will challenge you to explore your values, establish priorities and reconnect to a higher purpose and deeper meaning within your life.

During the interview, Jon shares his journey leading up to the creation of the book, including the origin story of the Front Row Foundation, a wish organization that’s helped hundreds of people who are fighting for their lives, live front row experiences.

Jon’s time working closely with the foundation has definitely put life in perspective. He recognizes that there is a lot we can learn about living life, from those who are fighting for it. He believes that you don’t always get to choose your seat in life, but you do get to choose whether or not you have a front row experience. And that is exactly what today’s interview is all about!
