Hey there! I'm Charlie. I enjoy creating stuff (like books) and playing. I'm also a marketing strategist, a speaker, a videographer, and a standup / improv comedy fan.
I graduated from Colorado State University in 2008, and after a few months of sending out my resume to companies I didn't want to work for -- and getting rejected -- I decided to just start working on projects I cared about. I studied under entrepreneurs and authors like Seth Godin, Ramit Sethi, and Tucker Max. I worked a lot for free, while hustling to earn money on the side in temp jobs. Then I was hired by Tim Ferriss, and helped him during the production and launch of The 4-Hour Body (#1 New York Times bestseller, 1 million+ copies sold). I also wrote a popular career guide -- Recession-Proof Graduate: How To Land The Job You Want By Doing Free Work -- which has been read more than 150,000 times.
There's more to my story (like the many failures and embarrassments along the way) but people tend to ask me about the highlights. If you want to reach out, go to the Contact page on my site: charliehoehn dot com.
