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.

''Whatever it is that you want to do in life, don’t be afraid to do it. Don’t be afraid to fly. - Brianna Greenspan

Has anyone ever told you that you can’t do something? Did you choose to listen or did you decide to prove them wrong?

In today’s conversation, Brianna Greenspan shares how she was able to turn her most difficult adversities into her strongest superpower!

Brianna has been using the power of positive affirmations for the past 10 years to overcome the physical challenges that being born with a chronic invisible illness brings about. When Brianna decided that the labels and limitations of her medical team did not align with what she believed to be possible for her life, everything began to change. From back and neck braces, surgeries, and too many doctors' visits to count to competing in her first 10k and hiking Half Dome at Yosemite National Park, Brianna is living proof that the power of positive affirmations coupled with extraordinary faith and immense effort really can overcome the biggest obstacles.

Brianna is a Chronic illness advocate, mentor for teens and young adults with chronic illnesses, marketing consultant at FamilyTreeDna.com, author, Front Row Foundation ambassador and has been a great personal friend for years. Brianna is passionate about nature, sustainability, wellness, her advocacy work, and inspiring others to achieve their goals.

Brianna is hands down one of the most positive people I know and you’ll see why in today’s interview! Brianna discusses her incredible journey and explains how she’s been able to turn her limitations into strengths.
