We’ve lost the legendary sales trainer and motivational speaker Zig Ziglar to a bout with pneumonia. As you know he was an inspiration to sales people, businesses and marketers everywhere. He authored 29 sales and motivational books, including See You At The Top, and traveled extensively giving motivational and training presentations.
What better way to honor Zig than with a few of his own quotes?
