Being a part of a legacy can be a double edged sword. For today’s guest, Tom Ziglar, he does his legacy proud. The son of leadership icon, author and speaker Zig Ziglar, the apple does not fall far from the tree. Tom carries on the Ziglar philosophy of: “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough people get what they want.” Tom my friend, welcome to the podcast.

Growing up in the Ziglar house -- tell our community what that was like?

If our community wants to maximize their greatness EVERY DAY -- they can start right here and right now. Give me an action that someone can take away today and begin Tom.

We are about the same age -- and as you know my dad and your dad came from similar stock -- have those been shoes that have been challenging to fill or were you up for the task from early on?

Why do you think some organizations and entrepreneurs struggle to get what they want?

I know you are a family guy -- share some insight on gaining balance in one’s life.

Share a few details if you would on the three ways to achieving greatness:

  • Engage
  • Equip
  • Transfer
