Julie Ziglar Norman
Author, Lecturer, Motivator
Julie Ziglar Norman is the youngest daughter of world renowned motivational and inspirational author and speaker Zig Ziglar and his wife, Jean. Julie shared the Get Motivated platform with her legendary father for several years, appearing to over a million individuals, before becoming the dynamic, disarming, and refreshingly transparent speaker and author she is in her own right. She is as comfortable speaking to a group of twenty-five or a venue of twenty-five thousand. Her unique experience of being raised by “the motivators’ motivator” has given her a perspective on life that keeps 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 has inspired 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 have 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, Howard Putnam, Joe Montana, Lou Holtz, Steve Forbes, Sarah Palin, Goldie Hawn, and many others.
Julie served as her father’s editor for twenty years and is a winner of the coveted Guideposts Writers Workshop contest. Her background in sales, business management, and the service industry, as well as her experience as a wife, mother, step-parent, and grandmother, enable her to relate well to just about everyone. Julie lives in the sleepy little town of Alvord, Texas, where she and her late husband Jim moved in 1999. She is proud of her four children, thirteen grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Julie is an International Keynote speaker and the author of Growing Up Ziglar: A Daughter’s Broken Journey from Heartache to Hope. She also offers Ziglar Principle Based Life Coaching and helps men and women build financial security through commercial, multi-family and single family real estate investment.
