What is a Trailblazer?
Imagine this… yesterday’s women settlers navigated long dusty roads with no superstores, gas stations, or drive-thru windows. They travelled by foot, carried young children and peed on their dresses (think about it).
They experienced marauders who wanted to steal their possessions and often went days without access to food or water. Their list of struggles goes on and on.
Of this I’m certain…they were trailblazers!
When I think of historic trailblazers, I envision women settlers trekking across the globe seeking their dream home. Where they can raise a family and thrive. I think of the Titan herself. Oprah Winfrey and other sheroes who have shattered the glass ceiling and are changing the world. In fact, Time Magazine has even created an edition solely dedicated to women who are trailblazers. It’s a really great read, you can check it out here if you’re curious.
We are Trailblazers!
Some of you may think of smoking cannabis while hiking. Others may think of the women who are highly active in the feminist movement. You may even be thinking of yourself!
As any expert will tell you, trailblazers are those who are willing to go first. Take the path less travelled, learn the hard lessons, and pave the way for the next generation.Trailblazers are those who are willing to go first, take the path less travelled, learn the hard lessons, and pave the way for the next generation. #fempirecoach Click To Tweet
Lord knows I’ve learned countless lessons the hard way.
My book, Don’t Just Try, Do “IT” For Your Why! is riddled with humorous accounts of personal. And professional triumphs and lessons learned.
I’ve trailblazed certain paths…the hard way…so you don’t have to.
Nonetheless, I’m proudly a trailblazer and would do it all over again. If it meant other women didn’t have to struggle!
I believe that my efforts (along with other like-minded women) will change the world’s perspective of women. Create a legacy of equality, and eradicate the glass ceiling. I’m paving the way for the next generation of incredibly, amazing entrepreneurs. Who will in turn trailblaze the way for the subsequent generation.

As Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “You gain strength, courage, and confidence. By every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.”
The Girl with the Purple Hair… and Nails
Often, as women, we apologize for asking challenging questions. Being bold enough to speak our minds, or for having different opinions.
But seeking forgiveness can chip away our self-worth. Tells us that we’re not smart or good enough and that what we think isn’t important.
I believe that all women deserve to feel confident, supported, and celebrated. For standing up for themselves, asking questions. Sharing their thoughts, opinions, and ideas with the world! And I believe that women have a powerful voice that deserves to be understood.
Overall, I believe that women deserve to be treated with the utmost dignity and respect… always!
Women are unfairly judged for their weight, the length of their hair. Not having the right job title, enjoying sex, having a bad day, and so much more.
That we must be inherently flawed beings if we don’t fit into the proverbial mould of the “ideal woman.”
Who created this concept?
Why does their opinion matter?
I believe that women deserve to be true to their authentic selves in every aspect of our lives.
Be Your Authentic Self
My outward appearance has been the focus of many people in my life.
From never being picked as the farmer’s wife during Farmer in the Dell. (I was always the cheese that stood alone) to being bullied throughout elementary school to messages. Such as “You’d be prettier if you weren’t so heavy”.
I’ve endured some pretty terrible verbal attacks about my appearance.
My response to the person that thinks they’re the vision of perfection is, “Really?? You might be a decent human if you weren’t so judgmental!”
(In all honesty, I use another illustration along with clear instructions and expletives. In my response to such ignorant comments, but I cleaned it up for you.)
Anyhow, I was mostly happy and okay with who I was inside and out.
Yet, my beliefs didn’t make a whole lot of sense. How could I be content with who I am when kids didn’t want to be around me. Because “being fat was contagious?” (a courtesy message from one of my bullies).
Why did people feel that my weight out shadowed my beauty?
Now, don’t get me wrong, there were times when individual attempts to shame me. Ate away portions of my soul, but for the most part, I was okay! I saw something in the mirror that no one else seemed able to see.
Despite my outward society-imposed ‘flaws’, I was happy being me.
I’m a person of integrity and an excellent listener. I’m a strong, confident, intelligent, and creative hard worker. Who never fails because I won’t quit until I find a solution. I love to celebrate other women’s successes!
And my favourite characteristic of all, I’m funny AF!
I’ve learned that I’m TRULY happiest when I’m just me. Wearing shorts in the winter, rocking an adorable purple (sometimes black) bathing suit in my pool, and making people laugh. I finally figured out how I could be content in the face of adversity.
I’m unapologetically true to my authentic self.
In short, I live my life and run my business as authentic Angie. Haters are gonna hate, but they have no place in my life. Their opinion of me is none of my business! At the end of the day, I’m Angie. And no one (or no words) have the power to take that away from me.
There’s nothing stronger than a woman who is unapologetically true to her authentic self for she loves herself enough to never settle, know her worth, speak her mind, and act with integrity!– Angie Giltner

You may not remember my name. But you’ll never forget “the girl with the purple hair” that rises 3-4 inches above her very round head. Whose purple nails are always highlighted in glitter. (glitter just makes me happy) And a smile that lights up a room.
