Get Motivated With George W. Bush

If you've ever wanted motivational tips from the former president of the United States, now's your chance: President George W. Bush will be the featured guest speaker at a Zig Ziglar "Get Motivated!" business seminar at the Fort Worth Convention Center this coming Monday, Oct. 26. The lineup will also include Colin Powell and Rudy Giuliani, both of whom have participated in Ziglar's events before, Giuliani between the end of his mayoral tenure and his presidential run. Laura Bush will join the Ziglar crew for an event in Jacksonville Nov. 2, so it's possible an ongoing affiliation between Ziglar and the Bushes will emerge.

Ziglar has advertized himself as "not retired, but 'refired.'" Perhaps the former president has undergone a similar resurrection since his last day in the White House.
