Meet our Newest Fempire Certified Coach, Angie Giltner!

by

Hello! 

My name is Angie Giltner – I’m an expert Fempire Certified Master Coach, author, business growth queen, and trailblazer!

Thank you for making the time to read a little bit about me.

So who am I? 

Well, the most important thing to know about me is this – I’m success obsessed, and max level passionate about empowering female entrepreneurs who want to attract their ideal customer and grow their businesses to the next preferred level! 

And with my background in social work, I know how to quickly move you from self-doubt to confident businesswoman. 

I truly believe that TOGETHER, we’ll move mountains!”

In addition to almost 10 years as a successful entrepreneur, I come to you with 28 years experience as a leadership development coach, trainer for the social services, social worker, chemical dependency counsellor, certified human trafficking investigator, guardian ad litem, adoption assessor and court investigator. 

I also have a master’s degree in organizational leadership. 

Can you tell I love to learn? 

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.

Lord knows I’ve learned countless lessons the hard way. 

Don't Just Try, Do "It" For Your Why! By Angie Giltner Book Cover

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.

Highlights of a trailblazer

Here’s a little bit more about me, my qualifications, and why I love what I do! 

  • I’m the firstborn and also the first female in my family to graduate from college. 

  • I was the first Worthy Works Award winner for my commitment to the quality of life, social conscience, and betterment of the community. 

  • In 2017, Wayne County, Ohio named me “Woman of the Year.”

  •  In my first year in business, I earned Ohio’s Small Business Development Center’s Small Business of the Year Award. 

  • I created The Annual Power of Her® Professional Development Event, which is the first of its kind in my area.

  • My book Don’t Just Try, Do “IT” For Your Why! was #1 in educational leadership and #1 in educational problem solving on Amazon.

  • And finally, I am the first Fempire Certified Master Coach in the U.S.

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 and 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, and sharing their thoughts, opinions, and ideas with the world! And I believe that women have a powerful voice that deserves to be understood.

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’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’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!

So, thank you for taking the time to read a little about me. 

You have a choice on how you spend your time and I’m grateful that you chose to spend it getting to know me a little better. 

If you allow me the privilege of working with you, I will help you skyrocket your business – overcome imposter syndrome, attract your ideal customer, grow your business to the next preferred level, and become the confident and savvy businesswoman you desire to be!

TOGETHER, we’ll move mountains!

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.

    Angie–Your humor is the one thing I remember about you from HS. So happy you’ve embraced it and use it in the best possible way to empower yourself and others to do good in this world. Too many others have allowed society and others to squelch their genuine identities. Bravo to my fellow “Authentic Self” sister—together we have much more work to do 🙂
