807: Eric Holsapple – Let's Get Real About Mindfulness



Let’s get real about ‘mindfulness’ in business. It can be a buzzword these days, and as a term, it gets tossed around a lot – but what does it really mean? In this conversation with guest Eric Holsapple today, we bring mindfulness down to earth and discuss the benefits of mindfulness, specifically in a business setting. We talk about how mindfulness is representative of a much broader paradigm shift, not only in the own self-employed sector, but also as a movement in the broader business world.

Eric Holsapple has a PhD in Economics, has been a real estate CEO and developer for nearly 40 years, lectured real estate at Colorado State University for 20 years, and practiced yoga and meditation for 30 years. Eric was awarded The Colorado State University Real Estate Entrepreneur of the Year in 2010; and Bizwest Bravo Entrepreneur of the year award for Loveland, CO in 2015. Holsapple has a unique perspective on how merging business and mindfulness can be a catalyst in changing lives. Eric is the Founder of Living In The Gap. His popular workshops teach CEOs and professionals a different way to operate mindfully while improving the bottom line. Eric has written numerous published articles in real estate and economics, and a book entitled Profit with Presence that will be published in early 2023. Eric is a regular speaker at public and private events, and a popular guest on business podcasts.
