"The opposite of play is not work. The opposite of play is depression." - Charlie Hoehn

Charlie Hoehn is the Head of Author Marketing for Book In A Box and has written several best-selling books of his own: Play It Away and Recession-Proof Graduate, that offer simple solutions that help people get on with their lives

Previously, Charlie interned with Seth Godin, Ramit Sethi and was Tim Ferriss’ Director of Special Projects, whom he helped edit and launch The 4-Hour Body. The book debuted as a bestseller — #1 New York Times, #1 Amazon, #1 Barnes & Noble.

When he graduated college in the midst of the recession, Charlie Hoehn found a way to provide value, allowing him to thrive when many others suffered. His unique approach - explained in this interview - has enabled him to rub shoulders with and learn from some of the most powerful minds of our time.

Charlie's own "workaholic" nature drove him to depression and serious bouts of anxiety which led him to discover the power of play and how it can help us increase happiness and reduce anxiety.

This podcast is loaded with lessons from Charlie's mentors (Seth Godin, Ramit Sethi, and Tim Ferris) as well as actionable strategies for you to end the guilt you feel when you're not working, reduce stress and anxiety, and how to build more play (read: joy & happiness) into your life.
