The Specialist Radio Hour

Some people are born with the “gift” to inspire us to reach our potential. Chris Kettner, aka “The Specialist” a Naval veteran, is one of those unique individuals. Born in Richmond, Virginia, this gifted communicator hit the ground running after proudly serving his country. In a very short time he had become one of the most prolific and successful door to door salesmen in the U.S. With over 40 years of one on one sales experience, he has been recognized with numerous awards, including 5 “man of the year awards” (3 consecutively). As a published author, he penned the highly respected trade manual “The Sales and Management Bible”. He jokingly quips “I have personally interviewed over 250,000 families in their homes, and that doesn’t count the 2 million that didn’t let me in the door. “The Specialist” nickname was given to him over the years for his unique style of teaching, delivery, and attention to minute details.
