After our first book, Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World, went into print, Troy Amdahl and Dave Braun jokingly guessed how many copies of their self-published book they would sell. After adding up their family members and lifelong friends who would support their dream to one day "change the world with a word", their final consensus was ... 47 books.
Since the first copy of the original book rolled off the presses a few years ago, the Oola Lifestyle has become a literal phenomenon—a dynamic movement—with over 100,000 copies sold.
But something else has come along that blows those things out of the water: Barnes & Noble just named our new book, Oola for Women, No. 1 on its Top 100 list of bestselling books. The best part? The book doesn’t even hit the shelves until May 2.

Its full title, “Oola for Women: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World – 7 Key Areas of Life to Have Less Stress, More Purpose, and Reveal the Greatness within You,” provides a better idea of what is waiting between the covers.
Written by the OolaGuys, with help from Janet Switzer, our new book pays homage to the women who made Troy Amdahl and Dave Braun the men they are today. That really comes through in the testimonials from fellow seekers of the OolaLife. These authentic stories add depth to the tenets of Oola, including the seven key areas of life–fitness, finance, family, field, faith, friends and fun–along with the seven OolaBlockers and the seven OolaAccelerators.
We can’t wait to share the Oola for Women book with you. Stay tuned to our Facebook page as we officially launch the book with a series of events in late April. Here’s an early taste of what’s waiting inside:
- From Christian Axness – “It wasn’t always easy, but I believed in what I was doing and I believed in me. Life may throw you a curve ball, something unexpected, something terrible. If it does, lean in. You are stronger and more capable than you know. Of this I’m sure.”
- From Chaly Jones – “Oola believes together we can change the world with a word. By making ourselves better, we make our families, communities, cities, and the world better. Learning to listen to God’s voice and His purpose for my life, our family’s life has changed. It has been unexpected, unplanned, and far better than we ever could have imagined. Listen to that voice—the voice that life can be better.”
- From Kimmy Brooke – “Over my lifetime, I’ve been grateful for every bump, bruise and scratch –as well as for all the opportunities where I’ve been able to serve—that have gotten me to where I am today. I’m nearly 50 now and just purchased my dream home. And as I prepare Caesar salad—with the Hawaiian landscape out the back window and the waves crashing on the lanai in front of me—I am living my dream … not someone else’s.”
We’re grateful for all of you who put us at the top of the Barnes & Noble list. Thank you for sharing your dreams with us as we walk this journey together, and remember …
Be grateful, have faith, and go get your OolaLife!
