Julie Ziglar Norman    

Motivational Speaker 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 motivational 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.

Carrying her father’s legacy of encouragement into the next generation is an honor and a privilege that Julie never expected or sought, but her willingness to accept the challenge has already inspired over a million people 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, Howard Putnam, Lou Holtz, Steve Forbes, Sarah Palin, and many others. She has delivered keynotes for corporations, direct sales organizations, annual association conventions, not-for-profit organizations and ministries, women’s organizations and entrepreneurial groups. Julie was her father’s editor for almost 20 years and is a winner of the coveted Guideposts Writers Workshop contest. She is also a past president of the Texas Herpetological Society and the 2009 recipient of the Journey of Sisters, Honorary Sister Award.

Her background in sales, business management, and the service industry, as well as her experience as a wife, single mother, step-parent, grandmother, and widow, enable her to relate well to just about everyone! Julie’s riveting presentation style and her ability to create an internal desire for positive change have contributed to her being recognized as the most meaningful female motivator speaking on public platforms today.

Julie lives in the sleepy little town of Alvord, Texas, with two rescued cats, three rescued dogs and one on purpose horse. She and her late husband Jim Norman have four children, thirteen grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
