I first met the Oola guys at an essential oil convention many years ago.
I was super impressed by them and their book and their message.
I am so please to see their ideas become so popular and spark the Oola movement around the world!
Oola co-authors want to help people live the life God designed for them.
The Oola Guys: Troy Amdahl (OolaGuru) and Dave Braun (OolaSeeker), renowned experts in a proper life balance, have been traveling the highways of America (they’ve visited every state in the US except Hawaii and Alaska) in their 1970 VW surf bus covered with hand-written dreams on colorful Oola stickers placed there by people who are putting their dreams into action and are ready to live the OolaLife (they say the van is covered with twenty-five layers of stickers!). It’s a powerful, yet simple message that has captured almost one million Oola fans on social media (when they host an event, the line is wrapped around the building).
But it’s not easy trying to live up to your true potential when life gets in the way. It’s difficult to see the greatness within you when life is busy and out of balance.
That’s where the Oola guys come in.
What is Oola? Its origins come from the expression “ooh-la la!” and is a “state of awesomeness.” 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 now become Oola, a nationwide phenomenon and a dynamic movement.
Now, co-authors Troy Amdahl and Dave Braun are releasing Oola For Christians: Find Balance in An Unbalanced World.
“When your life is balanced and growing, you are living the OolaLife,” says Amdahl. “You were created to live that life – you were designed by God for greatness! Before you were even born, God placed within you a special gift that no one else has and a purpose that no one else can fulfill.”
The Oola principles incorporate Biblical teachings into practical, effective platforms to help readers overcome stress and create the awesome life they were meant to have. The book details how to avoid the 7 OolaBlockers that prevent people from accomplishing their goals and demonstrates how to apply the 7 OolaAccelerators that propel people forward toward their greatest potential.
Plus, readers will learn how to create balance and fulfillment in their lives by optimizing the 7 F’s of Oola: Fitness, Finance, Family, Field (career), Faith, Friends, and Fun.
“Oola helps strengthen your faith in Christ,” adds Braun. “No matter what you are going through, you will get through it because God has your back. Choose prayer over worry and stay faithful. Trust that God has a purpose for your plan.”
- Young Living Convention (July 17-19, 2019) – both Troy and Dave will be attending/speaking to crowds of fans! (They are celebrities among the essential oil distributors and 30,000 will be in attendance this year)
- This is the third book in the OolaLife series, which has sold over 125,000 copies and collected over one million fans on social media
- Christians need to be strengthened because as a culture we are losing our way – our faith is weak, our hope is shaky, and our Christian principles are constantly tested.

About the Authors
Troy Amdahl (Phoenix) is a native of Rochester, MN. The “OolaGuru” graduated cum laude from Northwestern Health Sciences University, then became a devoted husband and father (has 4 kids), and a successful businessman who travels the world, retired debt-free at 42, and an Ironman triathlete. Once a year, he and a group of friends―including Dave, the “OolaSeeker” who sought him out as a mentor―would meet to set goals and find balance and growth in the key areas of life―the synthesis of which became the philosophy and movement that is Oola.
Dave Braun (Salt Lake City) is a native of Napoleon, ND. 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, but eventually drifted from them and found himself bankrupt, divorced (with 5 kids), disconnected, and living in a motel. At rock bottom, he sought out Troy, 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.
