by Troy Amdahl; Dave Braun
Pub Date 17 Oct 2017
Oola is not your typical self-help book. So what is it? Just like its origins from the expression "oh lá lá!" Oola is a "state of awesomeness." It's when your life is balanced and growing in the 7 key areas of life--Fitness, Finance, Family, Field (career), Faith, Friends, and Fun. Oola is not stale and stuffy advice, it reads more like a collection of kick-ass anecdotes and sincere stories that just happen to have meaningful messages. Co-authors Dave Braun (@OolaSeeker) and Troy Amdahl (@OolaGuru) have been there and done that. What started out in 1997 as a small group of buddies meeting once a year at the Hard Rock in Vegas to set goals for the future has turned into a nationwide phenomenon. Maybe you've seen Dave and Troy traveling the highways and byways of America in their 1970 VW Surf Bus. Covered with colorful Oola stickers, they are carrying the hopes of people, just like you, who are putting their dreams into action, ready to have the OolaLife. You, too, are awesome and designed for greatness and a purpose—LiveOola!

Braun (Salt Lake City, Utah) is a native of Napoleon, North Dakota, and
is co-author, with Troy Amdahl, of the international bestselling book
Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World. Dave found material success
at a young age while under the mentorship of Troy, who taught him how to
live the Oola principles of balance. He eventually drifted from them,
however, and found himself bankrupt, divorced, disconnected, and living
in a motel. At rock bottom, he sought out Troy, the OolaGuru, knowing he
needed help to get his Oola back. The OolaSeeker vowed that if this
worked, he would share Oola with the world. It did, and today he and
Troy travel the country in a 1970 VW Surf Bus, speaking to groups,
collecting dreams, and helping people find balance, purpose, and growth
through the 7 F's of Oola. Visit oolalife.com.
