Otis and Charley Finish First!

ISBN: 9781634891523
Author: Andy Frisella
Published: 11/6/2018

Meet Charley and Otis, two lovable bulldogs with two very different personalities!

It’s the day of the K9-9K! But Otis isn’t feeling very happy—there’s no way he can win a race this big, he says. Will Otis make it to the finish line? And will Charley be able to teach him that, no matter what, if you say the right words to yourself, you can win the day?


Andy Frisella is a successful entrepreneur, international speaker, and—in his words—“regular dude.” He founded and leads six companies in various industries; most notably, 1st Phorm International, which designs, manufactures, and distributes nutritional supplement products. He is the host of an extremely popular and top-rated business and success podcast, The MFCEO Project, which has drawn millions of listeners since June 2015.

At a very young age, his parents taught him entrepreneurial values that have greatly affected his life. They encouraged him to have big dreams, but also to work hard for them. Concerned about the laziness, entitlement, and unfulfilled potential prevalent in our culture, Andy (along with Vaughn Kohler) created the Hardworking Tails series to influence kids to value the mindset and work ethic that made America great.

Andy and his wife, Emily, are real-life parents of real-life bulldogs Otis, Charley, and Ellie. They live on a farm outside St. Louis, Missouri.
