Legacy as Livelihood


Legacy As Livelihood is Purpose Coaching for spiritually-minded people that understand purpose as the way to be in relationship with life. Approaching it requires true devotion, space and curiosity – like ANY intimate relationship. We believe that by shifting HOW you approach your life effects how your purpose reveals itself.


The Aesthetic Union

At its roots, The Aesthetic Union is a letterpress print shop specializing in custom work and original editions. We offer artisanal printing, in-house design services and bespoke typefaces for those seeking one-of-a-kind results. 

But we’re more than ink on paper. We believe in a well-appointed desk and an inspiring workspace. We believe in collaborative projects and community involvement. We believe that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. That’s why we’re proud to carry locally made cards and notebooks along with a curated selection of writing accessories and studio supplies. That’s why our gallery features collaborations with local artists that push the boundaries of letterpress printing. We invite you drop us a line, visit the shop and come join the union.

TinyB Chocolate

Brazil. Bossa nova. Beaches. And now brigadeiros!  That’s the essence of tinyB chocolates. We capture the excitement, romance and richness of Brazil in the magic of its favorite national chocolate treat. Luscious chocolate brigadeiros. Available now for the first time ever in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Made fresh to order with two-day delivery guaranteed anywhere in the continental US, tinyB offers the hands-on care and service of a local family-owned business blended with international charm and panache.

But at its heart, tinyB is about the happy love story between Renata, a beautiful Brazilian chocolatier, and Andrei, a San Francisco tech entrepreneur. They fell in love, got married and started tinyB in their kitchen as a way to share their love for each other and for brigadeiros with San Francisco and the world.

Renata’s special recipe heightens the chocolate intensity, without the bitterness of dark chocolate or the sweetness of extra sugar. Hand-dipped coatings offer a variety of sensational taste treats.

Perfect for sharing, giving and enjoying. Client gifts. Wedding favors. Personal presents.

Each tinyB is handcrafted and gently placed in gift boxes that are detailed with care because we want you feel that they're made just for you - which they are.

The Shift Network

We are deeply committed to supporting the shift toward a planet that is healthy, sustainable, peaceful and prosperous for all and are striving to make an impact on multiple fronts.

First and foremost is our transformational content designed to support you in accessing your full potential and bringing your gifts to the world so that together we shift things in profound ways.

Every year we feature a vast array of free inspirational and educational content that covers a wide range of personal transformative practices as well as important social change topics.

We also create over 70 in-depth courses each year, to which we give hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships so that transformational education can be available to all those who seek it.

As we create our programming and grow the network, we strive to be a great place to work, one that values employee wellness, growth, and community service.

Additionally, we believe that shifting the paradigm in business means that for-profit companies (like us) can and must consider overall social and environmental impact as a measure of how well we’re doing. We are committed to providing value to all our stakeholders — including people and the planet.

To that end, we give a large percentage of our annual profits to charitable organizations.

We have also allocated a significant amount of company stock toward nonprofits that are profoundly shifting our world. For more on this area of our work, please read below.

Honest Mamas is a website committed to the authentic emotional and spiritual lives of mothers. The focus of the site is the journey of motherhood, including fertility and pregnancy. It is an online community that supports women during these transitional and transformational times, when grounded, positive and honest information is vital to their emotional well being. Honest Mamas is a place to be real, witnessed, celebrated, and comforted.

As new mothers, the three creators of Honest Mamas, all licensed psychotherapists, found a huge gap in the “industry of support” around pregnancy and motherhood.  Many of the top websites for pregnant women and new moms primarily focused on baby/child development, parenting advice, products and gear, baby names, etc. Very few resources were available to support the emotional and spiritual changes they were going through—each longed for a safe place to be heard and to hear the authentic voices of other mothers in struggle and in celebration. Honest Mamas was created to fill this gap with a holding space free of judgment where deep thinking and feeling moms can gather to find resources, support, and community.

Honest Mamas is the epicenter of a new, collective holding for generations of empowered mothers.
