The Front Row Factor: Everything You Can Learn About Life From Those Fighting For It

Welcome to the Front Row Factor show! Here you'll learn "Everything you want to know about living life from those fighting for it." I'm so grateful you're here. Nice to meet you. I'm your host Jon Vroman, and In 2005, I co-founded a charity called Front Row Foundation, which helps kids and adults with life threatening illnesses to have a front row experience at the live event of their dreams. We then provide the tools to live EVERYDAY "in the front row," which is one of the reasons we host this show. The metaphor of the Front Row is about getting close to the people, places, things, and thoughts that make us come alive. We want to teach everyone in our community how to maximize their moments, because we never know how many we're going to have.

''I realized I am much stronger mentally and physically then I gave myself credit for.'' - Lisa Thompson

Finding the absolute edge of our limits is never an easy task, but is a critical part of achieving any kind of greatness in life. How then, can we push beyond what we believe is possible without going too far? Where is the line and how can we realize our true potential, even with goals that may be uncomfortable, extremely difficult, or seemingly out of reach?

Today, I get to talk with my friend Lisa Thompson, who is going to show you how to get one step closer to accomplishing your toughest goals and taking life to entirely new heights!

Lisa Thompson is an accomplished mountaineer who has stood on top of six of the world's highest mountains, including, as you will hear, Mt. Everest.

Throughout her life, she has become adept at gracefully overcoming challenges in order to accomplish unexpected things.  She is a cancer survivor, and she is still the only person in her entire family to graduate from college. Afterwards, she grew her career from a field service engineer to the leader of a $25m organization.  

When she isn’t in the mountains, she spends her time traveling and sharing her story with other motivated people.

Here’s a Quick Breakdown of Our Chat…

  • [12:58] Find out what life was like for Lisa growing up and how she came to love mountaineering.
