    Zig Ziglar: simply the best


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     omekongo told me, 'What inspired me so much about him is that he stayed humble despite his tremendous success. He learned early on that without the love of family, we truly have nothing. Success isn't about money. He once said that you can have a big house but that doesn't make it a home. You can have a spouse, but that doesn't mean you have a mate. He showed me that you can reach the height of financial success, but it means nothing without faith and family. I live by those principles everyday to the best of my ability.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Rest in peace to the family of Zig Ziglar. He was not just a great speaker. He was a messenger. He taught us lessons about business, but more importantly about family and friends. I am still inspired by Zig to this day. I am so thankful to have been exposed to his work.
