About Julie Ziglar Norman
Julie Ziglar Norman shared the Get Motivated Seminars platform with her legendary father , motivational icon Zig Ziglar, for several years before becoming the dynamic, disarming and refreshingly transparent motivational speaker she is today. 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 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.
Julie was her father’s personal editor for almost 20 years and was 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 parent, step-parent and grandmother, enable her to relate to just about anyone!
Julie and her father co-authored the book Embrace The Struggle in 2009 and her new book Growing Up Ziglar, A daughters broken journey from heartache to hope! will be published by Guidepost books in May 2012.
Julie lives in the sleepy little town of Alvord, Texas with her beloved husband of 29 years, Jim Norman, three rescued cats, four rescued dogs and three on-purpose horses. She is the proud mother of four adult children and 12 grandchildren. Her hobbies include trail riding on her horse Kup, reading and Herpetology (the study of reptiles and amphibians).
