Bill Poston is an entrepreneur, business advisor, investor, philanthropist, educator, and adventurer. He is the founder or principal owner of over fifteen companies and nonprofit enterprises. He’s a proud graduate of Pearland High School, Texas State University and the University of Texas, which granted him a master’s degree in business administration and cursed him to Longhorn fandom.
With experience in a multitude of business sectors he was in search of his next adventure and founded Live Large and authored the Manifesto. 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.
His passion for exploration and adventure keeps him moving around the world in search of more extreme forms of hiking, SCUBA diving, snow skiing, boating and all types of fishing. Bill keeps his “north of fifty” body in condition with a punishing exercise regimen and a crazy diet that includes lots of really good wine. 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.
