I wanted to make sure I took a moment to say thank you for a job well done. We have had had multiple speakers over the years, but I must say your presentation was one of the most engaging and provided so many nuggets to utilize immediately in our daily business activities.  In only 30 minutes, you inspired me to front end load a timeline on a project I have pushed to the backburner for 6 months.  As of yesterday, every participant understands the Who, When and What. It feels fantastic and I have had great feedback from the group participating in the project. Thank you so much for your interactive and inspiring presentation!

Thank you again for all you did.

You did a great job on the Ziglar Success 2.0 live webcast yesterday! I so enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing the story of you skydiving with your son to give me courage. It really helped me to think of ways to connect with my family. Also I am really taking away the word ‘action’. Not just an intention or thought but I need to act on it!

Beth Ellis

Thanks for sharing Stick with It with us.  With the guidance and tools you shared we all can be better at life and at our professions.  God bless you!

One of my reps in in Australia had to get up at 5am to watch your live Ziglar Success 2.0 live webcast and was exhausted from the night before, but she said it was worth it and that you were awesome! She is a very tough critic so you should be very pleased!
