The Art Of Moment Making W/ Jon Vroman

“You have to choose who you give a front row ticket to in your life, and you also have to choose who you are going to be front row to.”
— Jon Vroman

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Jon Vroman. If you haven’t heard of Jon Vroman, he is a philanthropist, a speaker, a bestselling author, an ultra-marathon runner and the founder of the Front Row Foundation. Jon has been doing incredible work for many years, working with people at the end of their lives, mainly people with terminal illnesses. The lessons that he’s learned and the inspiration that he’s taken away has led him to write an incredible book and come up with an entire philosophy about how to make moments.

It’s normal if you don’t understand what that means, what making a moment is actually about. I was unclear about it as well and I was also unclear on what it means to live life in the front row. We went into both of these in the episode, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised to find out that they meant something way cooler, way more meaningful and way more inspiring than even I could have imagined.

So I am very excited to bring you guys this episode and I am sure you guys are going to enjoy it!
