Guest Profile

Julie Ziglar Norman

Julie Ziglar Norman, the founder of Ziglar Women, 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. 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, Dr. Robert Schuller, Joe Montana, Lou Holtz, Steve Forbes, Sarah Palin, Goldie Hawn, Bill Crosby and many others.

Julie served as her fathers editor for almost 20 years and is a winner of the coveted Guideposts Writers Workshop contest. She co-authored Embrace The Struggle: Living Life on Life's Terms with her father and Guideposts recently published Julie's first solo book, Growing Up Ziglar: A Daughter's Broken Journey from Heartache to Hope.

Julie lives in the sleepy little town of Alvord, Texas with her beloved husband of 30 years, Jim Norman. They have four children, twelve grandchildren, and one great grandson.
