The words of Mr. Zig Ziglar and his son are timeless and have helped many people and organizations realize their true potential.
As CEO of Ziglar, Inc., Tom Ziglar shares not only a last name with his father, Zig Ziglar, but he also carries on his philosophy, which is simply, “You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”
