''When we have purpose, we find power.'' - Jon Vroman
What started as an organization to help people brave life-threatening illnesses, has grown into something much bigger than I ever imagined.
If you’re brand new to the show, The Front Row Foundation is like Make-a-Wish meets Tony Robbins. We create life changing experiences for kids and adults who are fighting for their lives by putting them in the front row of their dream event.
Today, we want to celebrate a major milestone! We’ve recently surpassed a decade of creating these experiences, which has resulted in over 100 magical moments for Front Row recipients!
But what amazes me even more, is how this foundation has evolved over the years. It’s not just a wish organization, it’s a philosophy for life. We have built a community and culture that continues to ask the question:
how do we live every day in the front row fully engaged, closer to the things that make us come alive and make us feel like every moment of our life is meaningful?
To celebrate, I wanted to get together with some of the people who have been there from the beginning. Which brings us to today’s special conversation...
In today’s roundtable discussion, 5 best friends—myself, Hal Elrod (International Bestselling Author of The Miracle Morning and #1 donor to The Front Row Foundation), Jon Berghoff (Managing Partner of the Flourishing Leadership Institute), John Ruhlin (Author of Giftology), and John Kane (Director of Sales at Cutco and first person to ever get the Front Row tatoo!)—revisit how The Front Row Foundation has brought us together and share stories of how we’ve supported each other over the years.
