HAPPY ISN’T A MYTH. NEITHER IS BADASS.
I’m Dr. Les Kertay, your
I work especially with people who want to transform the HO-HUM they are into the BADASS they’d like to be.
My main objective?
Show you how to live a bold, fulfilled, and badass life.
Straight forward, no bullshit conversations. I don’t buy for a second that you believe settling is the way you want to live your life. During our conversations, you get to talk about whatever’s on your mind; what you’ve been doing, thinking, planning, what fits in your life and what doesn’t.
I’ll be paying attention for the things that fire you up, the things you really want but didn’t think you could have, the secret stuff everyone told you to give up on. I’ll also be on the lookout for all the excuses that keep you stuck being the ho-hum you are and not the BadAss you want to be.
Meet: Les. He’s a rare, special edition kind of guide who can blend both book and street smarts into a conversation that makes you look and feel better.
Loves: Maddie, 6 children, a home full of animals and people and chaos and love, fly-fishing, woodworking, running and partaking in general life badassery.
Forty years experience in: Health and human services (especially in the areas of health psychology and disability medicine), applying behavioral science to personal growth and organizational leadership, corporate leadership, and running his own private practice.
Current position: You’re looking at it; Wiseguide, BadAss Consultant, and Chief Everything Officer at Dr. Les Kertay & Associates, LLC, a BadAss Partner. I’m also Chief Medical Officer for R3 Continuum, one of the coolest companies I’ve ever run across.
Favorite Beer: What else but a proper Black & Tan with Guinness Draught and Bass Ale?
