“Every day I get to do what I love,” I’m a former engineer who left her six figure job to pursue her passion as an Independent Style Director for Gigi Hill bags. “I connect with women who want to be organized, stylish and successful. I enjoy providing support and inspiration to the stylists on my team as well as to my customers. I try to show them that it’s possible to have it all: friends, family and entrepreneurial success. I became my own boss relying on the Gigi Hill organization and training with experts in the direct selling industry. By reaching out to others who enjoy fun, function and fashion I have grown my team to more than 200 stylists across the nation. “When I met the founders of Gigi Hill — two soccer moms from Los Angeles — I was impressed by their passion to create bags that were both beautiful and functional,” adds Phyllis. “Being involved with this company in its early stages has been a phenomenal experience. As a busy mom, I enjoy being part of a business that gives me the flexibility to spend time with my family. My husband Harry, two teenage sons Mike 19 and Mack 17, and two daughters Rachel 23 and Shannon 21 are all supportive of my new career. I’m also a great connector, continuously exploring new ways to help people succeed by supporting their personal and business goals.  I also serve in leadership positions with several networking groups as well as on the leadership team of my local senior center. My role as an Independent Founding Sr. Style Director at Gigi Hill is a perfect fit. My mission now is to help other women feel great, be confident, organized, and fashionable. Becoming a Gigi Hill Independent Stylist is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I look forward to helping others find the perfect handbag to fit their lifestyle and sharing the benefits of Gigi Hill! Gigi Hill is so much more than just great fashion for your lifestyle, we are changing lives one handbag at a time…

Fashioning a New Life

What comes to mind when you hear the word “Mediocrity”? Perhaps ordinary …or average? My life has been about overcoming mediocrity with many role models that I met along the way. I’m one of those people with a strong faith in God, and I strongly believe that there are no chance encounters and that everything happens for a reason. The people and the circumstances we encounter on our journey to greatness are the culmination of our being, our doing, our dreaming and the energy we put out into the universe that couples with others that we were meant to encounter.
