They are typically found in the sub-Sahara in Africa, a wild member of the pig family, but this morning, two baby warthogs join us here at 3TV. Meet Wilma and Betty. Warthogs are the only pigs in the world that can live with little to no water for months at a time. So, why aren't these creatures doing well in unprotected areas? We learn that, and more.

  • When feeding they often kneel and crawl around, they have calloused pads on their wrist to protect them when crawling and kneeling around

Oola Dream Tour

If you truly have a desire to live an OolaLife, it's paramount you identify those toxic traits that hold you back from finding balance and growth in the 7 F's of Oola and embrace the transformational characteristics that will help accelerate your journey to greatness. Troy Amdahl (OolaGuru) and Dave Braun (OolaSeeker) tells us what Oola is and why they written a book for women who are pursuing a more Oola lifie.

What is Oola?
Oola-la, that's what life feels like when you're in the sweet spot, when your life is balanced, and growing in the 7 key areas of health and well-being (the 7 F's of Oola): fitness, finance, family, field (career), faith, friends and fun. It's more than a best-selling book series, it's a lifestyle.

Why did you write this book only for women?
After our first book launched, we realized many of our readers and followers on social media are women. When we recognized this trend, it made perfect sense. While a circus performer might spin seven plates in a single show, women spin seven plates (figuratively) every day. They juggle work, kids, family, and home life hoping there's room left in there somewhere for "me time." And if she is a small business owner or a career woman (as many of our readers are), she also juggles customers, clients, sales, marketing, professional events, and so many related activities that it's truly mind-boggling how much she packs into a 24-hour day. We saw value in using the inspirational stories and experiences of everyday women who share these same challenges as they pursue a more OolaLife.
