We interview our radio hosts so you can get an "up close & personal" glimpse into their lives...This month we're talking to Steve Truitt.
Steve is a certified practitioner of Hypnotherapy, NLP Practitioner & Timeline Therapy™, as well as a multi-talented and -faceted television, film, radio, and stage persona and host of "The Bottom Line" airing every Wednesday at 8am PT.

Paint us a picture here of who Steve Truitt is and what he's about.
I love science and technology and am fascinated by the link of science to Neuro-linguistic Programming, the work that I do. What I'm about is personal growth and challenge. I think that is crucial - especially in this time in our history as a nation and as human beings - that we be honest, forthright, responsible and smart about our choices and our lives. It's easy to be lazy and irresponsible, but that's not me. Each day I endeavor to live in truth and integrity. It doesn't always work, but I try.

What are the strengths and benefits of partnering up with a professional coach such as yourself?
A coach is just like it sounds: someone who is as dedicated to your success and growth as you are supposed to be. When you don't want to get up in the morning and run five miles, your running coach yells at you until you do. I don't yell, but what I do for my clients is show them their life as they've lived it up to this point. Usually they're not too happy with what they see, and so making the change comes easier for them. I help them along the way to see what they've got inside and what's possible for them. As I say to my clients, "I'm your coach for life" which means I'm a life coach and will always be there if you need me.

What's one key piece of advice you can offer us in how to create a life that you really love?
You have to take responsibility for who you are and who you aren't. That's the key to all happiness. We get so down on ourselves because we're not who we want to be, or dream about being. But instead of finding out what makes us unique, we dwell in the misery of our lacking. It's a shame, because if people really knew how powerful they really are, it would be a completely different and special world out there.

What's the biggest obstacle to someone creating a life that they love, and what are some small but effective action steps for positive change?
Staying consistent and committed to the work. It's work. You can't have an epiphany about your life, feel incredible, and then go back to the same old habits thinking everything will be all right. If you're really looking for change that will last, it must first come from the inside, then radiate out. Most people think you attract happiness or things. That may be true, but if you're miserable on the inside, that's what you're attracting: Misery. One small thing you can do right now to change is to decide every morning for the next 90 days (AND I MEAN EVERY MORNING) you're going to wake up with a plan to let go of something that day: Resentment, anger, fear, jealousy, feeling sorry for yourself, etc. There's always something - usually emotion fueled - that gets in the way of you having what you want. Get out a journal, write down what it is, and then spend the rest of that day letting it go. Apologize, accept an apology, make a call, let someone off the hook, let yourself off the hook... Whatever it takes to get past that emotion, do it. BE IN ACTION! That will form a habit which will ultimately serve your higher goals. And after 90 straight days of this, you might not even recognize yourself!

You have been quite successful and are involved with many facets of radio, TV, film and "one-man" plays. How did you come to walk this path?
That was my way of expressing myself as a kid: creatively. I was writing and directing plays and composing albums of music when I was 13. My best friend and I used to set up his video camera and just sit in front of it and create talk shows and commercials and all sorts of stupid things like that. This was about 20 years before "You Tube," and it's a shame, some of that stuff would have been a big hit I think! I have always had a creative side and now I use that side in my 'free time.' As I got older, I chose television as an outlet for my talents and got into TV hosting. It was a great run, and I'm not sure I'm actually done with TV, but the coaching has been such an amazing "Third Act" of my life, I'm just going with it.

What is your HealthyLife.Net radio show, "The Bottom Line" about?
The show is essentially what it says: "The Bottom Line." Many people love to talk around their problems, blame others, act like nothing's wrong, or just avoid situations completely. I won't be a stand for that. If you're calling my show, we get right past that and right to the situation at hand. Most people don't even want to REALLY know what's going on, they just want to complain. Some are just confused. My goal, my passion and my job is to help them see what's really going on and whey they can do to make a quick and lasting change.

What's the best way for someone learn more about you and your endeavors?
Go to I offer a weekly inspirational blog, access to tools and tips for personal empowerment, and coming soon to my store I'll be offering meditation and relaxation hypnotherapy downloads. And you can always tune in to "The Bottom Line!"
