*Author of original report: All is well that ends well! America's Top Buyer and Brent Johns Five12Media Patch things up!
We hired Brent Johns first to film, edit and distribute our families youtuhe series. Increased his salary 25% for him rebranding the company. He took control and seemed to be on top of things. Had seemingly great ideas and we let him run with things.
Paying each week his salary in advance. We rented him a SUV, paid all expenses for three weeks on the road, we paid to fly entire family in for shoots. He set deadlines and put on the local news that our episodes where going online Sunday five days into our buying week.
Sunday came and went, nothing. Monday came and went nothing. I sent him and email. Letting him know he was messing with my reputation. That he set the deadline. That he needs to set a new deadline he can live with and deliver.
Second week nothing online third week we get a one minute promo and another one minute intro. He puts the promo on at midnight the day of the third week deadline he set. Weird. On the Monday we are supposed to have a "premier" party at my house with all employees, I get an email from the lawyers from Antiques Roadshow.
Seems Brent added two things that he straight up stole from them. We demanded Brent render all work to us before posting. We demanded a copy of first episode on DVD. Since we had paid $1,250 a week plus all expenses on the road and it's been two months we didn't feel it too much to ask.
He quit and we got nothing. We offered to pay his last expenses and he demanded pay for a week he didn't work. He also demanded all rights to my families content which was clearly work product. We dont want his work. Wouldn't go near him for anything.
He slanders past clients and we have all facts and truth plus 1,000s of witnesses who saw Brent on the nightly news telling the world our episode was going on that Sunday. It never did and we kept believing it would and kept paying him. Till it was obvious what was going on.
Deep down I believe he tried. He just doesn't get it. Something is right with Brent and I pray for him. As far as our business, it was a complete loss of time. Now he wishes to publicly slander and defame me and my family. Just very disappointing.
