Testimonials

“What do Seth Godin, Tucker Max, Ramit Sethi and Tim Ferriss have in common? All of them are NY Times Best Selling authors, have ginormous followings, and are media magnets. Most of us already knew this about them. The one thing they have in common that most do not know is at some point in their careers they all had a level of support from Charlie Hoehn.” – Lewis Howes, author of the #1 LinkedIn Book, Founder of Sports Executives Association

He has a high-level understanding of marketing that makes him a true expert in this field. I highly recommend Charlie.” Chad Mureta, author of ‘App Empire’

“With a resume as gold-plated (for the under-25 set) as his, you’d imagine he’d describe himself as goal-orientated and ambitious… He portrays himself instead as a slightly ADD enthusiast who pursues his passions as they arise and lets them lead him wherever they will.” – CBS News

“The best thing about Charlie? Despite his level of awesomeness, he’s not an asshole (and he’s funny, too).” – Therese Schwenkler

And, to think, I owe it all to an e-book!”– Jennifer Noland

“Looking for an alternative to CareerBuilder and Monster? You might want to listen to what superstar marketer Charlie Hoehn has to say.”Savvy Sugar

“Recession-Proof Graduate is somewhat misnamed. Its advice strikes me as sound even if (a) you graduated college more than a year ago, (b) there’s no recession, or (c) you didn’t go to college at all. In fact, it’s probably even more effective if (c).” Colin Marshallproducer of ‘Notebook on Cities and Culture’ podcast

“Like the majority of my fellow graduating class out there blasting out resumes, I didn’t get a job right out of college like I thought I would. But after reading and applying this guy’s advice, I got two offers in June: a marketing manager position with a Fortune 500 company in Canada and to co-found an online marketing start up.” Radz Ketchum

“The heaviness of doing something I hate has been replaced with the lightness of figuring out how I want to spend my ideal day. It’s like a blank canvas, and I can paint anything I want.”Sachit Gupta

“One of the most popular and compelling e-books posted out there… A very entertaining read, he goes into the “truth” of what these graduates are going through, and then explains a very interesting approach to getting that job… not the job they will be hating for the rest of their lives, but the job they want to do.”Russell Miyaki

“Charlie Hoehn has set out some great advice for those about to graduate from university and wondering what exactly to do thereafter… This is not entirely for graduates though: anyone considering a career change should read this.”John Lampard

“He’s so right! Playing by the rules is a scam! Vive la recession-proof revolution!” Studio Absentia

“What I really took away from it was the whole idea of ‘free work’. It’s something that never really dawned on me until he went into detail about it. It’s actually pretty brilliant.”Marie Montemayor

“At first, I was like, ‘Who is this guy and what makes him think he’s recession-proof?’ I mean everybody and their granddad is claiming to be a guru or expert of some sort, so I was a tad bit skeptical. I hit the jackpot this time, though… I was pleasantly surprised and excited to see that Charlie wasn’t much different from me. And indeed, he had found a way to be recession-proof.”S. MeShae Hankerson

“[Recession-Proof Graduate] is in fact, exactly how I made it starting fifteen years ago. In 1994, I moved to LA without a job, a portfolio of my paintings and an absurd obsession with the computer.  I offered to make a free website for a magazine and another for a company owned by the son of Walt Disney.  I had no skill set, I had no contacts, just some books, free time, and a refusal to work a job I didn’t love for an hourly fee (I had unfortunately been doing that for a several years after college).  On a meager living I went into only slight debt to do this.  My next client was Apple.  I went from making $20/hour in September to $100K in May working as the creative director of a major company. A year later, I left to start my own company…  My first client was NASA, then Intel, then AOL, and for the last fifteen years I’ve made my own destiny.  I employ artists and engineers— all over the world.  It’s awesome.  Whenever we want to get into a new industry, we offer to redo someone’s website pro-bono.  We put our link on the bottom and the calls start coming in.  I’m living proof that what you say in your book is right on.”Kimberley Brooks

“Anyone who’s spinning their wheels searching for an entry-level job after graduating from college should read his entire e-book and take heed. Hoehn’s definitely on to something.”– Examiner
