Brent wrote record reviews and music articles for the Chattanooga News Free-Press (now the Chattanooga Times Free Press) from early in 1984 until the summer of 1987. He did little writing for the next few years, spending them playing Allman Brothers songs in seedy bars through the southeast before coming home to run a chain record store.
His time in retail management gave him an insight into business and the practice of management, including training, development, and team-building, in addition to marketing and administrative operations. Though he wrote little at the time, a few articles for local alternative newspapers and the occasional foray into the company newsletter, he accepted a promotion that required him to take part in the creation and implementation of training programs tools. In addition, the digital explosion allowed him to hone his writing skills through newsgroups and public forums.
In addition to doing proprietary training programs, he has done free-lance work for various publications and websites. His blog allows hims to vent his spleen on politics, sports, music, and other points of contention.
Late in 2014, he took a position as the primary jeweler for the eBusiness division of a local non-profit organization. He spends a few hours, three days a week, combing through the donations for pieces that can be put on their auction site. The bulk of his time is spent writing the listings of the items, 40 to 45 per day, which requires a degree of efficiency, as well as the standard digital copywriter skills.
Culture, politics, humor, music, poker, sports, and business content focusing on management, sales, service, and communication.
Politics, religion, and other stuff one isn't supposed to talk about. Music, sports, literature, culture, art, history, film, and sitting in a tent in cool weather, drinking hot, black coffee and pondering this mess around.
