Our fast-paced world causes stress from unrelenting job demands, family responsibilities, and change.

Despite your best efforts to push through the competing demands, you’re frustrated, confused, and maybe even a little hopeless that things won't get better anytime soon.

You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your wellbeing to work and parent.


💡 Imagine if you could... 💡

  • Feel SECURE and SUCCESSFUL at work without sacrificing your evenings, weekends, and family vacations.
  • Divide parenting and home management responsibilities WITHOUT RESENTMENT or self-doubt.
  • Spend QUALITY TIME with the people who matter most.
  • Find BREATHING ROOM to take care of yourself in a life that can sometimes feel too crazy busy.

No matter your situation, it doesn’t have to be this way. ThirdPath can help you create time for life by redesigning work, family, and other life priorities.

Testimonials from Past Attendees

Amy Feagin

 I love getting to talk to others from different stages in life and different parts of the country to get their perspective on common struggles.

Laurel Smail

It was the much needed "think time" that we don't often get in our daily jobs that allows for us to expand, inspire and change our thinking on things. 

Roger Trombley

It's always inspiring how varied the solutions and the applications of the ThirdPath lifestyle are!

Manasi Long

 I really enjoyed how open and transparent everyone was about their own personal circumstances.

Gary Abud

Remind myself that there are busy seasons, but chronic busyness is unworkable.
