About Dr. Eric Holsapple,

Founder of Living in the Gap

Dr. Eric Holsapple is a successful developer and entrepreneur with LC Real Estate Group in Loveland, Colorado who has used mindfulness to transform his life and business and helps others to do the same.

After achieving success as defined by society but still left feeling unhappy and stressed, Eric began practicing yoga and later meditation and mindfulness. The practices led him on a journey to true happiness, and he found his purpose: to share Presence with the business community. 

Eric has realized the value of mindfulness as not only a path to personal success, but as a sound business strategy that can change the world by reducing divisiveness and providing solutions to the myriad of problems facing us today. He has a unique perspective on how merging business and mindfulness can be a catalyst for changing lives, which inspired him to write Profit with Presence: The 12 Pillars of Mindful Leadership, a Wall Street Journal Best Seller. 

Eric combines the authority of a renowned business leader, the warmth of a dedicated teacher, and the wisdom and patience of a 30-year yoga and meditation practitioner. His unique mindset, when paired with his wealth of leadership experience, affords him a fresh perspective that makes for engaging and unforgettable keynote presentations and corporate workshops

Eric has a Ph.D. in economics, has been a real estate CEO and developer for nearly 40 years, lectured in real estate at Colorado State University for 20 years, and has practiced Yoga and meditation for 30 years. He has won Entrepreneur of the Year awards from Colorado State University and BizWest magazine.

He and his wife, Tracy, have three grown children, Ryan, Kaity, and Kohlton, who all have their own businesses. They summer in Maine, where Eric grew up, and enjoy spending time skiing in Steamboat Springs, Colorado in the winter.
