Douglas Kolker


Douglas Kolker was the founder of a hugely successful, nationally recognized sales promotion/marketing services agency. Despite the money and the success, Kolker was always frustrated by the constant arm wrestling with prospective clients. He never understood why some bought and some didn't, and it bothered him. It bothered him to the extent that he felt he had to revolutionize his approach to selling.
