Life Advance Love Advance Leadership Advance


Bill Poett is first and foremost a Warrior Heart. He believes that love is the most powerful force on earth and service the highest calling.

Bill Poett is a nationally acclaimed transformational guide, author, corporate facilitator, radio personality and Co-Founder of Life Advance International. Creator of the Warrior Heart Project, Bill’s no nonsense approach to personal and professional empowerment is changing the way people manage their lives and their businesses.

After thirty years as a Peak Performance expert, training members of America’s most elite military, corporate, and athletic teams, Bill developed the True North Compass and joined forces with Dr. Laura Ciel to co-create the world's first fully integrated personal and professional development training programs at Life Advance International.

The True North Compass is just one of the transformational tools we employ at Life Advance International. Based 100% on natural law, it enables the user to identify and actualize their perfectly unique soul purpose.

A fully integrated program that recognizes the essential roles our health, education, relationships and service play in our ultimate success and joy, The True North Compass is simple, honest, easy to digest and creates sustainable positive change!

Unlike The 7 Habits, Six Sigma, Kiazen or the hundreds of other disconnected “processes” that are being taught today, the True North Compass employs the pre-Socratic elemental building-blocks that are found within us and all around us in nature. It works exactly the same way nature works- in balance, flow and harmony.

In his new book “Live and Love Fearlessly” Bill expertly guides you through the process of creating your very own True North compass and then he shows you step by step how to use it, to connect with your truth, your joy, your soul purpose. With the five basic elements and six simple steps, you’ll understand how to transform your health, key relationships and business and in doing so create the joyful amazing life that is your birthright!

At Life Advance International, we specialize in improving your personal and team performance allowing you to maximize the results you experience in your professional and personal life. How the world’s happiest, most successful, vibrant and passionate people stay that way!

"LAI's Leadership Advance was exactly what our team needed to start the year off strong!  At the end of the program a member of our team shared, 'This was one of the best leadership workshops I’ve ever attended!' I walked away with some great insight on how I plan to have a fully maximized year. I highly recommend having Bill and Laura at your next training!"

I use the True north Compass everyday. Life has been in constant change and my emotions a rollercoaster. Great to be able to navigate. Thanks Dr. Laura Ciel and Bill Poett. Not always easy but simple and profound.

“Thanks, Kenna – I wanted to comment that I thought it was the best staff training we’ve had while I’ve been here.  My husband got sick of hearing about it. I particularly liked that he broke us up in to our offices – Might not be a bad idea to do that for a minute or two each time we have a training! I’m thrilled that he wants to come to individual offices”.

I ran into Dr. Laura Ciel and Bill Poett purely by accident. Or was it? I was looking for a simple but effective way to organize my life and enjoy the passion that comes from fully engaged commitment. I found it with the Love Advance Course and the True North compass. Simple. Fun. Effective. Try it!
