Who are we?
We are a small group of globally minded teachers, entrepreneurs, designers, storytellers, technologists, and psychologists, spread across the world, but united by a shared vision and common set of values.
We are world travelers and language learners, meditators, musicians, surfers, cyclists, runners, and life-long learners who are constantly striving to reinvent ourselves and make life and work an exciting global adventure.
We value diversity, so you don’t need to be a copy of us, but if you are curious, dedicated growth, and energized by hard problems, please keep reading about our big vision!
Our Vision: A World Beyond Borders
At RealLife, we’re on a mission to guide and connect 100 million monthly active Global Citizens to live their English in RealLife. We aim to do this by the year 2030. So what does it actually mean to be a Global Citizen?
If you've ever traveled abroad, learned languages, and/ or been transformed by perspectives beyond the limited reach of you local default environment (online or in-person), you've experienced the life-changing realization that no matter our differences - race, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, or even political beliefs- no matter what divides us, what unites us is far more powerful. This is Global Consciousness, something in huge demand, but short supply.
Did you know that nearly half the world's population doesn't currently have access to access the internet? That means that in the next 7 years around 50% of the world's population be onboarded to the internet, the world wide web, and these people, along with the rest of the world, will have an ever-growing need not just for confident, natural English speakers, but more importantly, for Global Citizens.
But what if there was a way to reach just a small fraction of these people with a deeper transformation- sort of like a "trojan horse" (but not the malicious kind) for English learners? We would start by solving their sharpest English learning pain: guiding them from being lost and insecure English learners to confident, natural English speakers. But along the way we could be actually be sewing the seeds of self-development and Global Consciousness!
This is who we are and relentlessly strive to be at RealLife, from the inside out- not just with our products and services, but also with our people, culture, and organization: we are committed to being a vehicle for each and every one of us to thrive, grow, and live our greatest lives being the change we wish to see in the world- starting with, but without a doubt going way beyond, our experience at work.
To this end, we believe that by carefully choosing the right people to join and build this "Rocketship to our Dreams"- capable professionals who share our cause, who never stop learning, growing, collaborating, and bringing their best selves every single day- that we can take a massive 5-10 year vision and make it very real, baby step by baby step.
Along the way it's been (and will continue being) an epic global adventure!
The RealLife Summit
RealLife Summit is our semi-annual team meetup that brings together the entire RealLife Team for an intense week of connection, fun, learning, envisioning, and overall "making up for lost time" (working remotely is hard for people and teams that get along together).
The 2022 RealLife Summit in Florianópolis was a magical experience (see video below), resulting in the product team all migrating to Florianópolis, and establishing our first ever RealLife in-person Hub!
The 2023 Summit was in Cusco, Peru. We even took a 2 day adventure to Macchu Picchu!
