A lifelong learner, music lover, and serial entrepreneur, Kent started a career in finance as a commodities trader and later became a Senior Portfolio Manager for one of the largest “wirehouse” firms on Wall Street . He is currently the President of Next Level Financial Advisors and a partner in software startup ProDeuce Sales Management.
Kent’s interest in the subconscious began after a particularly devastating Sugar trade that went very wrong (see Chapter 2 – “Sugar, Baby!”). Kent has since spent over a decade studying human behavior and specifically, the subconscious mind. He has said his hope is that the book, Monkey Brain, helps people understand why it is they sometimes succeed with ease at their goals, and sometimes fail no matter how hard they try, and how to change the equation so they succeed much more often. In Monkey Brain, Kent reveals a powerful and permanent way to change your life for the better. A simple technique to tap into your own subconscious motivations is the key.
Kent spends most of his free time on the never-ending projects a small farm in Doylestown, Pa. offers up, as well as tending to the barn-animal/pets alongside his wife of 25 years. This has earned him the moniker “Farmer Kent” from friends and colleagues, often offered with a wry smile as his stories of miniature donkeys and goats, barn cats and Irish Doodles that populate the place, along with tales of mucking, mending and wrangling can seem incongruous with his Monkey Brain/Author/Wall Street persona.
