Out & About Nashville has expanded its sales force with a new director of sales, and account executive.

Effective immediately, Scott Bryant is Director of Sales, Marketing & Events and Michael Price is a new Account Executive. As director, the position previously held by Steven Altum, Bryant will assume all of O&AN’s ongoing accounts and will be in touch with those contacts soon. Altum has moved to Tampa, Florida to join his partner.

Having more than 15 years of marketing experience, Scott Bryant began his career at The Jackson Sun while attending college at Union University studying marketing and public relations. Then, he moved back to his hometown of Paducah and took on the role of Circulation Sales and Marketing Manager for The Paducah Sun. There he implemented the company's first branding policies and catapulted the publication into the digital world with creative, multi-media ad campaigns.

From there, he moved to Nashville and became the Manager of Advertising and Creative Services for Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee. During his six year tenure he handled all of the organization's advertising purchasing; including print, outdoor, radio, television and digital. But Scott's main responsibility there was serving as the creative guru for the organization. With out-of-the-box, award winning ads, attention grabbing photo shoots, innovative art direction and marketing campaigns that garnered national recognition, Scott continued to mold the brand of Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee to be the leading non-profit in the state for donations, retail sales and job training.

Then he became a digital specialist with the Schurz Corporation in Central Kentucky. Working with large clients like Amazon, The University of Kentucky, and Keeneland, he utilized a powerful media mix of print and digital advertising to produce high levels of a return for his clients.

Scott is happy helping his clients achieve their marketing goals through strategic, multi-media advertising. He specializes in print and digital advertising, working with clients on creative ad campaigns truly produce major results.

When I was 14 years old, I surreptitiously made my way through the stacks in the local library until I came to the Psychology section.

Many of us have made resolutions and pledged ourselves to transforming some aspect, or aspects, of our lives. For some, these resolutions will involve career, budget, home ownership, etc., but for a LOT of us, they will involve various health, exercise and fitness goals.

Often, these resolutions are vague, like “lose weight” or “exercise more”, and way too often they begin with a gym contract and end with Netflix and a bag of takeout. Getting specific can help in holding yourself accountable for these commitments, though. So we thought it might be interesting to talk with a local gay trainer, James Mai, about his fitness journey, his work as a trainer and how he keeps himself motivated, and get some of his suggestions for carrying through on this year’s fitness resolutions!
