Brett Bumeter (@brettbum) is the owner of Softduit Media and entered social media building on 18 years of experience in 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 lent itself well to writing blog articles, & a double major in finance & accounting + a master’s in tax law didn’t hurt.

He has provided blog consulting services for CEOs of firms in Ireland, New York, Belize, Las Vegas, Burbank, Toronto & many more. He works with clients to increase their customer relationships & attract new business through social media.
