Gotamago's Story: Building a Life and a Business Under One Roof

Among challenges faced by entrepreneurs, that elusive work-life balance is one I hear time and time again.

Drawing the line between life and work is especially difficult for family businesses and those operated out of the home: kitchen tables overrun with production samples, packaging supplies overflowing from closets, after-hours conversations always circling back to the business. It’s a tough habit to break.

For Gotamago owners, Lichia Liu and her husband Christopher Guest, work-life balance isn’t black and white.

The lines are so blurred, it’s impossible to tell where one ends and the other begins. But for them, it works. Their business occupies a 2-story live-work building in an up-and-coming Toronto neighbourhood. Everything happens under on roof.

We visited Lichia and Christopher in the multi-functional space that serves as their HQ, warehouse, retail shop, event space, design studio, and home.
