A feel good reality television series created by Beth Dolan & Luis Remesar (Coyote Pass Productions) and Bill Poett (Bill Poett Productions)
Tired of all the negative, petty, fear-driven conversations on the airwaves, our team decided to create a more positive, meaningful, heart-centered dialogue. Our firm belief is that the more we beat the positive drum of courage, love, worthiness and kindness, the more ALL of that shows up in the world.
That’s the story we want to tell and we’re stickin’ with it!
Welcome to Bill Poett’s True North*.
Bill Poett, host of True North is an accomplished author, teacher, speaker, martial arts master, radio show host and founder of The Warrior Heart Project - one of the most expanded and far-reaching human growth efforts impacting the planet at this time.
Bill’s zest for living and relentless drive for knowledge and expansion have always motivated his thirst to seek out and connect with those warrior heart men and women – ordinary people doing extraordinarily uplifting things with their lives.
In an intimate interview format, coupled with a sense of out-in-the-world fun and adventure, each week’s one-hour episode of True North will have Bill deliver the inspiring and uplifting story of a real hero. We’ll be invited to listen in on the journey of the regular guy and gal -- the not-sosuper humans who’ve taken life on the chin, maybe even been knocked down a few times, and gotten up again only to discover their soul’s calling – their True North.
Before moving forward with the pilot for this show, we wanted to test the waters and validate our belief that people are ready and hungry for an entirely new conversation. So, in December 2012 we launched Positively Speaking with Bill Poett on BlogTalk Radio. With no budget and literally no marketing beyond word-of-mouth, within twelve weeks, our weekly podcast had over 14,000 downloads. And the numbers continue to climb. Clearly, we’ve struck a chord of interest.
You will identify and resonate with these stories. You will be encouraged and inspired by all that’s positively imaginable for yourself and for mankind. Pain & joy, tragedy & triumph -- they are all birds on the delicate and resolute wire
of life. Bill Poett’s True North aims to put the real back in reality television, to talk about life on life’s own terms, and in doing so, inspire all of us to be the best version of ourselves.
The time is now, the audience is waiting, welcome to Bill Poett’s True North.
We’re in. Are you?
