Mo Edjlali

Dipping Two Feet Into Mindfulness

episode 50


Mo Edjlali had it all—a degree from Virginia Tech, his own technology staffing firm, and a really nice car. Things were looking good as could be until the crash of 2008 came along and, suddenly, wiped away his business, his bank account, and most of his self-confidence. What emerged was a new perspective, which soon became the basis for a life more and more focused on mindfulness and meaning. Now the co-founder of Mindful Leader Inc., Mo co-produces the Mindful Leadership Summit in Washington DC each fall and is organizing other new events throughout the year. Hear all about his unusual path to this new life and the equally unusual bathtub mindfulness practice he had as a child.
