Meet the Family
Co-founder & CEO
Anthony started in magic as a young boy, when he pestered his father for a few dime store novelty tricks. After a few months of practice and many shows in front of the family, his Father took him down to Barlow, Kentucky and introduced him to Richard Price a semi-retired professional Magician. Richard became Anthony’s first mentor and helped him set up his first stage shows which launched him into a professional career at the age of eight. Anthony continued to perform professionally though out his childhood, high school and early college years. After joining the military and returning from his first overseas assignment in he learned that his parents had gotten rid of all his props; his professional career took a back seat to life.
In 2002 he was reunited with another former mentor, magician and motivational speaker, Bill Coomer from Cape Girardeau, MO. By then Anthony was serving on active duty again. Bill had spent most of the two weeks stateside reigniting Anthony’s interest in magic. Coomer gave Anthony CD of over 50 books on magic before thus inspiring Kolb to performing again. In 2003 Kolb performed for under privileged children in northern Illinois.
Traveling around the world, busking and performing at social events, and anywhere he could. Today Anthony publishes in blogs, newspapers, magazines and trade journals. He can also be found performing at Julie’s book signings, and other social and civic events. Anthony has also been a member of both the International Brotherhood of Magicians and Society of American Magicians for many years and continues to build his business and put smiles on peoples faces around the world. He is available for most business, civic, private and social affairs.
Co-Founder & V.P.
Julie Kolb is a mother, wife, military spouse, grandmother, bookkeeper, nurse, teacher, library page and clerk, waitress, salesperson, a tourist and the list goes on, a “Jill of many trades.” Life experiences give her many opportunities to meet interesting, wonderful people.
Julie’s writing began with crayons behind her mother’s draperies on the living room wall. This did not result in the greatest adoration. She moved on to her first book, where she filled the empty space at the end of definitions of a dictionary once owned by an older brother. Eventually Julie began keeping her thoughts written in an approved space, notebooks. These early journals were burned and sent to the heavens where only angels can read them.
Julie moved on to creating spur of the moment bedtime stories for her children. Eventually her writing expanded to blogs the earliest began around 2002. In 2014 she and her husband founded Kolb Web Inc and published “Snowball,” her first book.
