Judyth Piazza sits down with Zig Ziglar on The American Perspective Radio Program

Zig Ziglar is an all-American success story. Having grown up in a turbulent and difficult time, Zig Ziglar`s great compassion for people and their potential came about by observing his highly principled mother. Affected at a very early age by the death of his father, Zig learned first-hand the importance of self-reliance and a balanced work ethic. This foundation would eventually become his motto of: You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want. "

As a talented author and speaker his international appeal has transcended every color, culture, and career. Recognized by his peers as the quintessential motivational genius of our times, Zig Ziglar`s unique delivery style and powerful messages have earned him many honors and today he is considered one of the most versatile authorities on the science of human potential. Having shared the stage with Presidents Ford, Reagan and Bush, Generals Norman Schwarzkopf and Secretary of State Colin Powell, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Paul Harvey and Dr. Robert Schuller, he is one of the most sought after personal development trainers in the world. As a patriot he has been recognized three times in the Congressional Record of the United States for his work with youth in the drug war and for his dedication to American and the free enterprise system. Titans of business, politics and sports consider him to be the single greatest influence in their lives.

From humble beginnings in Yazoo City, Mississippi, to the Hall of Fame in Sales and Marketing, Zig Ziglar`s career has been one of consistent accomplishments. The earliest victories in large national sales organizations and a professional speaking career that has allowed him to transverse this globe are the foundation upon which the corporation that bears his name is built. Most recently the National Speakers Association honored Zig Ziglar with their highest award, The Cavett. "

Since 1970, individuals and institutions have utilized an extensive collection of Ziglar audios, videos, books and training curriculum. The client list of Ziglar Training Systems reads like a who`s who in American and global business. Nine of his twenty-four books have been on the best-seller lists and his titles have been translated into more than thirty-eight languages and dialects. Having been featured in such publications as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Dallas Morning News, Fortune, Time and Esquire magazines to name a few, Mr. Ziglar has also appeared on The Today Show, ABC`s 20/20, CBS`s 60 Minutes and Hour of Power.
