Why These Quick Videos Are So Critical

Raising kids is tough & they don’t come with an instruction manual! 

As parents, it’s easy to wonder if our kids will make it on their own?  So we assembled a team of successful leaders & experts to give you a comprehensive & unforgettable life-skills experience that guides parents & kids through it step by step. enables you to worry less about your kid’s future and the consequences of not knowing how to manage life’s tough topics…

Money, dating & marriage, friendships, peer pressure, time management, health/alcohol/drugs, & more!

Instead, feel confident you have prepared them well for life on their own!  

Over the past 30 years, I’ve journeyed alongside families as they navigate the challenges of the teenage years.  I’ve seen first-hand the difficulties that arise and how easy it is for kids to hit a rough spot that can leave them with a lifetime of consequences…

About The Founder

Chad Richard spent 20 years working as a senior executive for some of the world’s biggest companies…Through these roles, he became an expert on people, their lives, and their problems as he helped launch and manage some of the world’s most successful brands.

However, the most frustrating thing he learned was that people’s most challenging problems (with the longest-lasting consequences) were a result of poor decisions in a handful of topics that surprisingly aren’t taught in schools.  

This shocking revelation led him to assemble a talented team of leaders & experts who worked over 10 years to not only identify the important things that we need to manage well in order to avoid regrets, but also to share the secrets of success that enable us to live life to the fullest.

Trailmap for Life shares the results of that work & will change your life.

Help Us Transform The Future Of Families

Please consider a gift to us to help us reach more families that need help getting the right training.

These experiences have had a profound impact on me as they conveyed the true magnitude of the challenges every child faces during middle and high school, as well as the unique opportunity parents have to make a life-changing impact during this brief window of time.  The choices our kids make between the ages of 8 and 18 will have disproportionately high consequences for the rest of their lives…

“Parents- You have a brief window of years that closes ever so slightly each and every daydon’t miss this opportunity to breathe life-giving wisdom that will propel them throughout their life.”

It’s far too easy for us as parents to think that our kids are getting the preparation they need to navigate the challenges they’ll face, both now and when they’re on their own.  Unfortunately, they aren’t.  They aren’t getting it in school.  And they certainly aren’t getting it from their friends, television, movies, or social media…in fact, what they’re getting is just the opposite of what parents would hope for: 

  • Messages that consistently tell them that the most important goals in life are to get rich, have fun, and feel good.
  • Moral standards that are increasingly relative to one’s personal beliefs.
  • Movies, games, music, and television glamorizing sex, money, appearances, drugs, violence, and alcohol… these influence kids’ behavior by imprinting them with vivid messages and imagery that suggest these things represent success, while ignoring their destructive consequences.

It’s critical for us as parents to understand that both teens and adults encounter significant problems in the key areas of life because they’ve never had the training necessary to successfully navigate them:

“Parents –your voice is unique in your kid’s lives…it offers the power and clarity needed to be a lighthouse when uncertainty surrounds them and the path ahead is hard to navigate.”
