Have you ever met someone who just radiated cool, enchanting edginess? I have and I am so excited to introduce you to Angie Weihs, my favorite Ageless Rebel . Angie is one of the ultimate cool girls. I had been a fan of Angie”s and followed her on social media for awhile and was thrilled to actually meet her at the FierceCon 2018 conference I attended in LA last year. The minute I met her I knew she was someone who I wanted to spend more time with and get to know better.
