Today, we are here to celebrate. January 12th marked the launch of our new book: gōl, a curated guide to the modern day job hunt. For our families and many of our dear friends, it has been a long ride – two years in the making from that fateful day we sat lunching and the idea of a book started to form. A book that was so familiar yet so different than what is out there today.
We’ve been getting a lot of questions – why this topic? What does gōl stand for? Our answers: this is our chance to pay it forward, to give back to those who have given us so much and to celebrate. And it all starts with identifying your goals (or gōls- the phonetic spelling, as we like to say). The difference here is to start thinking about how your personal and professional goals need to coexist. Many of us think of them separately. A mistake that leads to unhappy and unsatisfied worker bees. To help people, we added a little bit of insight, a sprinkling of advice and a whole lot of space for you to fill with your thoughts.
This book has been a journey of friendship, fun and collaboration. And to celebrate that and all those who stood in front and behind us to keep it all moving, we’d like to make a toast. Mix up one of our favorite cocktails and let’s get clinking…

1/2 oz. lemon juice
