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.

What does the phrase “dig a well before you're thirsty” mean to you?
