Discover How Thrive Can Help Your Family

Your Family Success Partner

Thrive is a family growth membership community founded on the trusted, timeless wisdom of Zig Ziglar, whose success principles helped more than 250 million people over four decades. Ziglar Family CEO Mark Timm now leads a dedicated team passionate about continuing Zig’s legacy and coming alongside you to help empower your family to thrive. 

Zig Ziglar, America’s most influential and beloved encourager, believed that everyone could have, do, and be more. He reached and influenced an estimated 250 million people. But families know him best for his engaging seminars and books—Raising Positive Kids in a Negative World and Courtship after Marriage.

Once his faith was awakened, Zig realigned his priorities and began uniting his principles for success with his love for his family—and everything changed. He and his wife Jean reared four children of their own while modeling a loving, thriving marriage for 66 years.

When Ziglar Family CEO Mark Timm heard Zig Ziglar speak for the first time almost 3 decades ago, it changed his life direction. Mr. Ziglar’s timeless principles inspired Mark to start more than a dozen successful businesses.

But when his business success didn’t transfer to his family life, Mark and his wife got intentional about applying those time-tested Ziglar principles to leading and growing a successful, blended family with six children.

Today as CEO of Ziglar Family, Mark passionately shares the Ziglar principles that have worked so well for his family to empower millions of other families around the world. 

Zigar Family’s mission is to empower today’s family to be, do, and have more— because we believe every family deserves the opportunity to thrive.

We’re committed to becoming your trusted family success partner:

  • We want to help you filter out the noise so you can focus on what matters most.
  • We want to guide you down a proven family success path with access to experts and practical resources your family can use to win every day.  
  • We want to connect you with other families on the same journey so you know you are not alone.

See What Families Are Saying

"I'm a developmental psychologist. So many people out there have ideas of how to raise kids and relate to each other, but it's just based in opinion. A lot of what's said with Ziglar Family actually maps onto what science tells us about parenting. I really enjoy that a lot."

— Matt Hertenstein, Greencastle, Indiana, Husband, Father of One

The Family Success Path

Every family is unique and yet the family success journey is essentially the same for all of us. With 7 key areas of family life at the hub of the process, The Family Success Path™ identifies the 5 stages of growth every family experiences from Launch to Legacy.

The Family Success Path™ provides the framework for all the content delivered to you within the community so you won’t be overwhelmed.

Zig Ziglar often quoted his friend Joe Sabah who said, “You don’t have to be great to start, but you do have to start to be great.” Every family starts in the same place—Launch.

The Family Success Path™ is designed to let you know where you are on the journey and what resources would be most valuable to you at that stage.

You are not alone on the journey from Launch to Legacy. Community is the catalyst that accelerates your family growth and moves your family forward.

That’s why we founded the Thrive membership community—so you can prepare to thrive in connection with other families on the same journey.

No matter what stage of life you be at right now, this community allows you to learn from the experience of others. It’s the perfect way to invest in your future family by setting yourself up for success before you have children or a spouse!

For starters, the community only opens for new members twice each year. You might miss it next time around. Besides, your family legacy is the most significant investment you could ever make.

By surrounding yourself with an encouraging community now, you can position your family to thrive sooner and start enjoying the benefits of a family that thrives.

As a member of Thrive, each month you will receive the following series of four helps (one per week):

  • Thrive Family Focus: In-depth interview with a guest family expert about one topic or area of family life so you can learn from the best!
  • Thrive Family Resource: A valuable teaching resource equipping you to overcome specific family challenges and empowering you to thrive in that area.
  • Thrive Family Spotlight: We’ll highlight a family that has experienced success in a specific area of life so we can all learn from their experience.
  • Monthly Coaching Q & A Call with Mark and Ann Timm to help you apply the learning for that month.

Every month, Ziglar Family CEO and his wife Ann will host a LIVE Q & A coaching session via video. Occasionally they will be joined by the monthly expert and questions can be submitted beforehand. You can watch or listen in and interact with the Timm's. These coaching sessions will be recorded for easy replay in your busy schedule. (One-on-one family coaching is also available at the VIP level.)

Make connections with families who share your passion to be, do, and have more! As a Founding Family, you’ll get immediate access to a secret Facebook community as we launch. We will then transition to a robust, protected forum where you can get questions answered and meet more families like your own.

As a member of Thrive, you’ll get a foundational, guided learning experience that will be delivered to you in bite-size pieces over the first 90 days with your busy schedule in mind. You can easily access it at any time within the Thrive community portal.

When you engage this foundational Families that Win video-based experience…

  • You’ll get clarity on your family direction with the Ziglar Family Purpose Creator™.
  • You’ll learn practical ways to guide your family to consistently be, do and have more using the Ziglar Family GPS™.
