Brett entered social media building on 18 years of experience in marketing, sales, intelligence, process management, finance, accounting & contracts. He left the high rise corporate world and an office with a view of a man made pond in Buckhead, for a Cove on Lake Wylie across from Charlotte, NC where a WiFi connection and an international airport keep him connected to the world. ______ In 2005, Brett began working as a business developer, web designer, blogger, & blog marketer. Writing intelligence estimates & strategy recommendations for Army Intelligence & Fortune 500 companies in the 90’s lent itself well to navigating social media.
