Tom Ziglar is the proud son of the late Zig Ziglar and CEO of the Ziglar Corporation.
Zig was, and still is, one of the people who has shaped my life the most. I first saw him speak on my early 20's. I saw him speak live 9 times and attended the 3 day Born To Win course, where Zig spoke to our small group every day. I have read every book written by Zig and listened to every audio recording he ever did.

One of the greatest thrills of my life was walking up to Zig at The World's Biggest Bookstore in Toronto for his book signing appearance and having him call me by name as I walked up to the table.
I interviewed Tom for my Journey To Success Radio show.
One of the things we discussed was the new Ziglar Legacy Certification.
I also got to work with Laurie Magers to get all the details I needed for the interview. Laurie was Zig's Executive Assistant for over 30 years.

Prior to being named CEO, Tom Ziglar began his career in retail and direct sales.
He joined The Zig Ziglar Corporation in 1987.
Tom is the co-author of Born To Win, taking the Ziglar philosophy and applying those same principles to the business world.
Tom enjoys golf, like his dad Zig used to, and working out several times a week. He has been married to his wife Chachis for over 25 years and they are the proud parents of Alexandra.
All 3 of them are owned by their dog Max.
I have also interviewed three other Ziglar Corporation speakers in the past for Journey To Success Radio.
Michelle Prince - Michelle and I shared the stage at the Think and Grow Rich Summit in Del Mar, CA in April 2013. As a best-selling author, Zig Ziglar Motivational Speaker, business owner of multiple companies, wife of 15 years and mother of two young boys, Michelle Prince had to learn the art of juggling her personal and professional life successfully.
Howard Partridge - is the one and only small business coach for the Ziglar Organization and the author of 7 Secrets of a Phenomenal L.I.F.E.
Philip Hatfield - Phillip is an amputee from a devastating accident November 9, 2008. Not expected to live, almost died 7 times in the first 10 days, he not only survived but also THRIVED.
Being blessed to be ALIVE drives his passion to share lessons learned from life and BUSINESS. His message is Crystal Clear, all about Hope, Encouragement, and Attitude, finding a NEW VISION & DREAM. Making GENUINE Goals plan to achieve your Dreams and W-o-r-k the plan. PLAN, Prepare, Execute and EXPECT to WIN!
