Daughter of Motivational Icon, Zig Ziglar, and Author of Growing Up Ziglar



Julie Ziglar Norman shared the Get Motivated platform with her legendary father, motivational icon Zig Ziglar, for several years before becoming the dynamic, disarming and refreshingly transparent inspirational speaker and author she is today.  She is comfortable speaking to a small group of 25 or a venue of 25,000.  Her unique experience of being raised by the motivators’ motivator has given her a perspective on life and work that keeps her audiences laughing, crying and taking notes.

Continuing her father’s Legacy of Encouragement is an honor and a privilege that Julie never expected or sought but her willingness to accept the challenge is inspiring audiences in America and abroad.  Her vibrant style of delivery, her honest and transparent assessment of life, and her willingness to share intimate details of personal failures, as well as personal triumphs, has made her a popular crowd favorite.

As her famous father once did, Julie has shared the platform with greats like General Colin Powell, Rudy Giuliani, President George W. Bush, Laura Bush, Joe Montana, Lou Holtz, Steve Forbes, Sarah Palin, Bill Gaither and many others.  Julie’s client list includes Fortune 500 Companies, Non-profits, Network Marketing Firms, Christian Women’s Ministries, Pregnancy Centers, Abortion Recovery Groups, Foundations and Associations.

Julie served as her father’s editor for almost 20 years and is a winner of the coveted Guideposts Writers Workshop contest.  Her background in sales, business management, and the service industry allows Julie to relate well to any corporate audience.  Her life experience as the poster child for bad choices enables her to minister to those seeking to trade a life full of guilt, shame, fear, and regret, for a life filled with joy, peace and hope!  Her latest book Growing Up Ziglar: A Daughter’s Broken Journey from Heartache to Hope, was released by Guideposts Publishers in May of 2012.
