Front Row Dads [Family Men with Businesses, Not Businessmen with Families] with Jon Vroman

Dec 28, 2022

Have you ever thought about writing a book?  I believe every dad should at least consider putting their knowledge, stories, and strategies on paper. 

YOU have wisdom, and yes…you should model that for your family and business, AND consider the impact you’d have if you put all this on paper, in an organized way, that could live on forever. 

In 2017, I self-published The Front Row Factor for several reasons. First,  I wanted to document some of the most important life lessons for my kids. For my business, I wanted to scale impact.  For our charity Front Row Foundation, I wanted to help more people. 

In the FRD community, we have guys like Hal Elrod, Author of The Miracle Morning, Justin Donald Author of The Lifestyle Investor, Ned Schaut Author of The Adventure of Fatherhood – and we have dozens of other examples.

I’m blown away by some of our members who’ve written books that are changing the world while creating a legacy for their kids. 

My interview today is with Chandler Bolt. He is the founder and CEO of Self-Publishing School, which has helped over 7000 authors write and publish their books. He was named to Forbes’ 30 under 30 list, and Self-Publishing School got into the INC 5000 four years in a row.

We discuss why you should start writing a book and why you don’t need to be a great writer to be a published author.

One last thing. If you go to, you can get a FREE printed copy of Published, Chandler’s latest book. (Printed copy for US residents only, digital copies are available for non-US residents)

We are in the business of building better families.

While most dads would say that family matters most, the challenge is they feel guilty knowing their careers get the best of them, and their family seems to get the rest of them.

We help Dads become family men with businesses, not businessmen who have families, so they can thrive personally AND professionally.
