My first introduction to Zig Ziglar (1926-2012) was in 1989, when I began my sales career. The company I worked with had amazing sales training programs and it was during one of these that a book by Zig Ziglar titled “Secrets of closing the sale” was recommended for reading. I remember devouring the book. Closing is one of the toughest stages in the sales cycle and as a newbie, I could do with every bit of advice I could get. And who can dispute the master salesman? I still have the book. I believe that it not only made me a better salesperson, but taught me a lot of interpersonal interactions. After all, as Zig says, “Selling is essentially a transfer of feelings”. That’s the truth. If I progressed from being a salesperson to a trainer, I believe Ziglar influenced that decision.
Zig Ziglar (1926-2012) is an American Author, Salesman and motivational Speaker and trainer and World War II veteran. He has written more than two dozen books, all of which are best-sellers. He has millions of fans.
