Thank you so much for all your support over the past year or so, and whilst it’s taken a fair dose out of our own emotional wellbeing, we’re delighted to say that after some considerable deliberation and consideration, LearnShed finally has a new name and will shortly have a new identity (we’re just busy working on that part 😉
By way of explanation to you, our faithful community of supporters, the name and personality of LearnShed began when we were finding our way. For us, back then, live stream was the right way forward. It was new, exciting, bold and quirky but it was also a terrifyingly expensive method of delivering workshops. And you know what? It wasn’t a terribly relevant or necessary method of delivery either. If we were streaming live fashion shows to you, then absolutely, but that wasn’t the case. Over time, we began to feel that live streaming workshops on emotional wellbeing, for a startup that hadn’t sought funding and was just finding it’s feet, was just a little too much. We knew that if we continued, we’d need massive investment and with that, we’d likely lose some of what we held most dear. As this platform continues to flourish, we wanted was to keep our audience, clients and community as top priority, rather than focussing on an investor’s quick return.
The whole concept of emotional and mental wellbeing is relatively new to us here the West and has particularly exploded over the past year or so. We’re trying to find the right language to describe, yet not alienate a growing, curious audience. In exploring this business, we have also explored ourselves and it seemed to us that this thing called life was best approached as an adventure. And as we begin creating transformational travel experiences to add to the e-courses, live talks and blogs we already offer, the word adventure, well it just felt right.
And whilst we are losing the word ‘Learn’ in our name, we are still very much about learning. After all, we truly believe that life is one big lesson and we are here to learn and experience, every single day. The Life Adventure is a name that now truly reflects our personality and we believe will embed us more fully into the world of emotional wellbeing. We hope you like it. it has a deep and very personal meaning to us and we also hope it will mean something to you, too. That, to us, is terribly important. And so, over the coming weeks, as you see the site begin to morph into its new personality, if you could please bear with us during this process, we’d greatly appreciate it.
