Bill Poston is the Founder and President of the Stelos Alliance. He created the Housley Principled Leadership Program after two decades of studying and applying the techniques in his own life. Bill is also a founding partner of Kalypso, where his values and leadership skills helped him build a successful and highly respected consulting firm that helps clients deliver on the promise of innovation. In 2013, Bill started a resort and tour management business, Muy’Ono, in Belize. Under the leadership of good friends Cortney Behrends and Tracy Ford, Muy’Ono manages a portfolio of ten resorts, islands, and related tour businesses. The firm leads the industry in Belize with innovative marketing strategies and an “adventure in luxury” approach to creating memorable guest experiences. 

Along the way Bill has served as a director on multiple corporate and nonprofit boards including the Texas State University Development Foundation and Alumni Association, Getaway2Give, Equity Estates, and Low Hanging Fruit. He has taught, mentored, and guided the careers of hundreds of successful professionals as a business leader, coach, teacher, advisor, and friend. Bill’s businesses have been recognized with countless awards and accolades for their relentless focus on values, professional development and philanthropy. 

He’s a recent recipient of Phi Delta Theta’s Road to Greatness recognition, as well as Texas State’s Alumni Star Award. His latest business venture is a lifestyle movement named Live Large that creates communities of inspiring individuals. The Live Large Manifesto was authored by Bill as a guide for purposeful and intentional living. The company will expand geographically using an innovative ambassador model that makes money while serving a higher purpose. 

While he lives with a “no fixed address” mentality, he and his wife, Richele, can occasionally be found at their home in the Texas Hill Country where their four adult children and a growing number of grandchildren infrequently congregate from far-flung parts of the world for raucous family time.
