How it all started…

After scavenging their apartment and emptying every piggy bank in order to get enough money to see the latest movie (Raiders of the Lost Ark), Don, our President and Founder, and his wife Jennifer, found themselves glancing into a small Chicago cafe, admiring all the finely-dressed people enjoying their meals. As they entered the cinema, Don turned to his wife and said, “I hope we have enough money one day to go to a movie AND buy popcorn and soda.” Don has never forgotten that feeling. It drives him today to create a community of endless opportunities!

After building a successful company over 30 years, with the help of friends new and old, Don came to discover that empowering others was even sweeter than popcorn and soda! Thus, the mission of Style Life was born; to empower others to do as Don once had!

We want to empower you to style your life however you envision it; to help you accomplish your goals, celebrate your wins, and deepen your connections with those who share your journey!
