Beating back anxiety and depression with real estate executive Michael Davis

Michael Davis helped build TerraCap Management into one of the largest commercial real estate fund management companies in Southwest Florida, where he sourced, evaluated and acquired more than $1.3 billion in real estate transactions and partnerships. In 2021, however, he faced something of an identity crisis mixed with what he called self-doubt, depression and anxiety. He overcame that and in 2023 he bought a real estate brokerage, Worthington Realty.

Together, Business Observer Managing Editor Mark Gordon and Michael talk about the go-go early days of his career and how he guided the business. They also spoke about Michael’s major life transformation — which remains ongoing — in response to his depression and anxiety. It involves music, walking — lots of walking — and more.
