Zig Ziglar has been my favorite of all of the masters, since I was in college. I listened to "the country boy" and liked him because he talked like everybody from the Panhandle of Texas and Easter New Mexico in the cow country where I am from. He talked about attitude and not listening to the negative people in your life and that was the beginning fo the journey for me, and I was selling vacuum cleaners for Kirby at the time. He had a part in inspiring me to get an MBA in Marketing, and helped me in a storied career, that was laced with success, in both the "men's rag business" with Wrangler, and then the Foodservice Distribution Business with Sysco, winning many awards. He talks down here where most of us live.
