The Hikecast is a show where interesting people take me on their favorite hikes or walks and we talk about big ideas in an unconstrained format. No planned agendas, just deep conversations, recorded out in nature.
The idea is for you to put on The Hikecast and get outside to simulate taking a hike with us. I want you to feel like you're there with us out in nature.
Care to join us on a hike? :)

It’s a coming-of-age story of a young man who learns about business and life from an unlikely teacher. Imagine The Karate Kid meets Thorndike’s The Outsiders. You’re right, it’s probably not what you were expecting, but I have my fingers crossed that you’ll really enjoy it. It's available on amazon now in print, digital, and audiobook formats.
Jon Vroman is a husband and father, who also happens to be the founder of FrontRowDads.com and host of the Front Row Dads podcast. His mission is to help high-performing entrepreneurial men be family men with businesses, not businessmen with families. In addition to his business and family, Jon founded FrontRowFoundation.org in 2005, a charity that creates unforgettable moments for individuals who are braving life-threatening illnesses. Ten years later, he published The Front Row Factor, to share “everything you can learn about living life from those fighting for it.”
Five Good Questions:
1. What inspired you to found the Front Row Foundation and what lessons has it taught you about your own life?
2. The modern world is full of stress--how have you made friends with stress?
3. How do you balance achievement and fulfillment? (Or is that a false paradigm?)
4. What are some tips for making more and better moments? Where are most of us going wrong?
5. It seems like you’ve done a great job to minimize the big life regrets. Yet recognizing that getting regret to zero might be impossible, what do you think could still be lingering for you personally when your time is up?
