Gail McWilliams has been a blessing to the Ziglar organization for several years. We fell in love with her the very first time she spoke for us as she opened her heart and her life story with total abandon and transparent honesty. Subsequent presentations she’s made for Ziglar have highlighted her extraordinary talent for touching hearts and lives with her messages. Gail appeared in two Ziglar 2.0 webcasts in 2011; response from our subscribers was excellent, and we look forward to additional messages of hope, inspiration and courage she might share in future webcasts. She shows equal uniqueness in her ability to put on paper what comes straight from her heart. We could not recommend Gail McWilliams any more highly as someone who can relate to people at any level of society. She’s a truly amazing woman with a heart to share her story as well as her faith in Christ.
Having Mrs. McWilliams share her story and nuggets of wisdom is truly priceless. Gail engaged us in a “talk with you and not at you” leadership mode.

A Little About Me:
I was raised in St. Louis. I am a lover of people and have never known a stranger. I use my energy, insights and skills to help others see the value of their own lives.
I moved with my family to central Illinois after graduating High School. Instead of seeking a teaching career I spent several years as a vocalist singing in groups and as a soloist traveling the nation. As a result, I have recorded eight musical projects.
In 1978 I married my husband, Tony McWilliams. We settled in Illinois and joined our gifts and vision to help people. My singing career expanded and I began to speak. My husband and I co-hosted a weekly television show and started a private school. I gradually began to lose my eyesight related to complications with pregnancy. With each challenge we determined to face them together and our family worked as a team.
We had our five children and raised them in the Midwest until 2000 when we moved to Texas. What a culture shock.
I first began to write when I moved to Texas to inform our friends and family back home about the new world we were experiencing. They responded positively over and over, so without even realizing it, I was practicing for the multiple books I would write. I am still writing books and blogs.
Since I started speaking in 2006, I have keynoted over 50 events around the nation and spoken for many women’s conferences. My husband and I present marriage seminars, and I have been interviewed on multiple television and radio programs. I also speak at corporations and universities. I produce my own daily radio program featured on broadcast stations around the nation. Churches love to have me come as a Mother’s Day speaker.
Every turn in the road has been in preparation for what I do today – and I love it!
I reside near Dallas, Texas where I enjoy my family living close by, including two adorable grandsons that I call my legacy boys.
