We just wanted to say thanks so much for coming on the show with us during our financial week. You sounded wonderful and imparted some great information to our listeners and all of us!
Thanks again -

You did an outstanding job. Every now and then, but not very often, a speaker delivers a message at our chapter meetings that changes lives. You have experienced it, too, no doubt. You and your message made that kind of impact. People will be talking for a long time. Even better, some people in that room today will make significant changes in how they do business. As Nido would say, your presentation was transformational. You certainly opened my eyes to the huge rewards that come from developing a full court press on developing credibility in an industry. I got clarity. I am grateful for that. And I’m already getting to work making changes in my strategy.
I’d like to participate in the mentoring meetings you host that you said Michele Moore is in charge. In LOTS of ways I’m a beginner too.
I don’t know if Debbie told you but I congratulated her too on your joint success. It was obvious her support of you and work in the office sustained you through the tough times too. It’s true, behind every successful man there is a woman. You are a very fortunate man.
Thanks for being totally open in sharing examples of just how you have crafted your success.

I deserve three lashes with a wet noodle for not sending this letter a month ago! I'm happy to say business has been great and I've been on the road, so I'm a little behind in my correspondence. I didn't want another day to go by, however, without thanking you for the incredible afternoon session you did for NSA Georgia last month!
It is rare for me to pay the extra bucks to hear an afternoon session speaker because my experience has been that some of them stretch 30 minutes worth of content into 2 hours. You did exactly the opposite! In that dynamic, high-energy way you have of doing everything from saying saying "hello" to performing a seminar, you captivated a room full of (often) skeptical people who hung onto your ever word.
Your generosity in literally giving away valuable, hard-earned information was surpassed only by the wonderful handouts that essentially provided a step-by-step guide to making money. I was so impressed with your entrepreneurial spirit and creativity. You were clearly the hit of the year for our organization!
The heart-felt standing ovation you received was both earned and enthusiastically given. Thank you for all you did - and continue to do to advance NSA Georgia and the speaking profession!

I knew your session was going to be fabulous, but you out-did yourself and topped my expectations! I’m not sure if you’ll ever realize how much your generosity is appreciated.
I’m really looking forward to participating in your mentor group and am prepared to do whatever it takes. Please let me know if ever there is anything I can do for you. Have a terrific week and I look forward to seeing you soon!

"I watched people stay on the edge of their chairs for hours. The room was totally silent except for the sound of your voice. Jim, you are indeed, the speaker who means business! Thank you for bringing to us one of the most powerful and insightful programs that I have ever seen. I would not hesitate to recommend you to any organization if they were looking for the best of the best in the speaking profession."
Tennessee Speakers Association
"I would say that Jim Ziegler is the best conference chairman and one of the best speakers I have seen in 5 years of organizing conferences. Your style was straightforward, professional, and consistently rated as the top speaker by many of the 275 conference attendees in the event questionnaires afterwards...I would not hesitate to engage your services in the future."

"Well you've done it again. It's as if your seminar was a monumental life style shift, an awakening. The response was truly overwhelming! I have been in the business 17 years and I've attended scores of seminars, this one blows the doors off all of them, nothing else comes close. Superlatives like fantastic, exciting, useful, and professional, were pouring in as these folks were headed back to work Friday afternoon, all of them with a double barrel shot of magnum confidence."

You definitely hit a grand slam home run yesterday! I saw Steve Cohn last night and he told me that yesterday was the best day of programming that he has ever seen at NSA/GA. I’m just sorry that I had to miss it, but as Victoria’s host, I did. I took her to lunch, then to Cyclorama.
Thank you a million times over for giving your time and expertise to our chapter. You are awesome!
Hugs to Debbie – a big “Hello” to Zack!
Your e-mail beat the one I was planning to send to you! I wanted to be among the first to congratulate you on a tremendous, informative, unselfishly generous presentation today. I am especially pleased that so many attended and were able to meet and see the REAL Jim Ziegler. You put “skin” on what it takes and what it means to be successful, and I think you demonstrated a sincerity and humility that may have surprised some people.
Certainly, seeing the support your wife and son gave you must have impressed some people, too. (Face it, Jim - you and I married way out of our league! Our wives are God’s good gift to us.) As I also mentioned, I was moved by the little things I observed that demonstrate Zach’s love and respect for his dad. It’s easy to be “way cool” at 14, trying on one face after another until he finds the one that fits. But he came across today as a genuinely good guy with a willing heart and an understanding of how to work and support his father. So, if anyone’s keeping score, they recognized that you batted 1000 today. In my opinion, it is NSA’s Summer Convention’s loss that you are not presenting this year. I would be happy to write a note of endorsement, as would others, if it would help you get on the schedule next time.
I know many are grateful for your mentoring assistance and I am glad that you hold them to a high standard. I just finished co-writing a book with an NSA member in Nevada. In this book, he insisted on writing, “Our goal is perfection. Excellence will be TOLERATED.” I told him it should read instead: “Our goal is perfection. Excellence will be CELEBRATED.” It is obvious to me that Jerry and Michelle (and, as a result, the others who participate in the mentoring you offer) feel celebrated as they work and learn and achieve under your guidance. So thanks for making investments of your time and energy on their behalf.
I sincerely look forward to a deeper friendship and exchange of ideas over the coming years as we get to know each other better. Thank you for your generosity toward me in the past as well.
“Solving People Puzzles is what we do best!”
Inspiring. Motivating. Captivating. Exciting. Focused. Connecting. These words are just a few of the superlative adjectives that ring true for me as I reflect on your World Class presentation this past Saturday afternoon at NSA/GA
Your phenomenal business success story is real. It is a story worth hearing about, reading about and using as a learning for life tool. I came home and have already devoured the first 106 pages of your book. By the time that you read this letter, I will have finished reading your wonderful and inspiring book.
While I don’t currently have mattresses strapped to the top of my car today and I am not quite $250,000 in debt (but darn close to it), I do feel a certain kinship with your “make it happen” spirit that allowed you to make one of the most successful U-turns in the history of human development. You are indeed the Poster Boy for anyone looking to go from zero to hero!!
Thanks for being so generous with your time, talents and information. I have personally already felt a growing sense of purpose and more inner strength since being at your seminar this past Saturday and reading your book.
May only your good dreams come true.
