Update: I’m very happy with sales for Play It Away. The book hit #1 in the Stress Management category on Amazon, thanks to a handful of press pieces hitting at the same time. If you want to check out some of the recent articles and interviews I’ve done, here you go:





“My friend Charlie Hoehn has a new book about anxiety out called Play It Away: A Workaholic’s Cure for Anxiety. I think it’s great and you can read my review on Amazon.”

Feeling Burnt Out? Attention workaholics, my friend Charlie just wrote this INCREDIBLE book on how to construct a fun and playful life while still working hard. Even for those that currently have depression or anxiety unrelated to work, this should be your new bible. Get back to feeling good!!! You deserve it.”

SUBJECT: “Burnout” – the not so silent killer.

We are now living in a world that demands more of us than any other time in human history. Technology has allowed us all the ability to work faster, smarter, connect easier, and breakthrough the roadblocks that have held us back in the past. So what’s the problem? If this is such a gift, why does it feel like we are flying at ludacris speeds yet never getting anywhere? 


I have had this exact feeling of not getting enough done, or not making enough progress, or not being enough (it never stops) and converted that stress into unrelentless drive and ambition. An offensive bulldozing-like energy that is second to nothing…not even my health.  It doesn’t take Einstein to realize this is not a sustainable model of living a good life, but at times I find myself right here. Burnt-out.


This is exactly why I have such a passion to free as many people as I can from the shackles of a life without freedom. The ability to actually create your dream life and to wake up every day with purpose. Ironically, when I was writing “App Empire,” and building the company that now has over 2,000 students. I let the steadfast “offense” blinders push me into a zone of anxiety, weight loss, fear, and depression.


When I was in the middle of it, I remembered that even in the midst of despair, we always have a “Get out of Jail” card. On that thought,  I pulled mine out and called up a recent friend of mine. Charlie.


Charlie was a young gun that had worked with some incredible, influential authors. Notably: one of my favorites, Tim Ferriss. To say Charlie is a very talented marketer, visionary, and brand strategist is an understatement. He is the guy you bring in to make an immediate checkmate on the chess board. Charlie was a big part of App Empire’s success, and the insurance on my mission.


There were many sleepless nights and we pushed ourselves beyond our limits to get everything done. After our very successful launch, I wanted to keep Charlie a part of everything. We worked very well together, but I could tell Charlie’s mind was on other things. Charlie decided to move on and put his energy into writing an incredible book that has helped me and others dramatically, called “Play It Away: A Workaholic’s Cure for Anxiety.”


Here is an incredible post on the Four Hour Work Week blog by Charlie reflecting on his journey beating burnout and anxiety during his time working for Tim Ferriss, and then again on App Empire.



Make sure you read this! This is something I know you’ll relate to.


To facing your demons,


Chad Mureta
