The funny and talented Chip Gaines is well known to millions of people as a TV star, renovation expert, bestselling author, husband to Joanna, and father of four in Waco, Texas. But long before the world took notice, Chip was a serial entrepreneur who was always ready for the next challenge, even if it didn’t quite work out as planned. Whether it was buying a neighborhood laundromat or talking a bank into a loan for some equipment to start a lawn-mowing service, Chip always knew that the most important thing was to take that first step.
Now a #1 New York Times bestselling book, Capital Gaines offers readers a ringside seat as Chip relives some of his craziest antics and the lessons learned along the way. His mentors taught him to never give up and his family showed him what it meant to always have a positive attitude despite your circumstances. Throw in a natural daredevil personality and a willingness to do (or eat!) just about anything, and you have the life and daily activity of Chip Gaines.
Capital Gaines is the perfect book for anyone looking to succeed not only in business but more importantly in life.

I appreciated his God thoughts. They seem like good people. Bur there were way too many mediocre chapters on insignificant memories. A lot of gloating on his wife. Which is sweet, until it becomes a bit redundant. I skipped several paragraphs (sometimes whole pages at a time). Unfortunately, the book consisted of really boring thoughts and basic observations about treating people right. I wouldn't recommend paying $16 for this book. Unless you know of someone that likes sports reference and needs a pep talk on how to be a better person.
Pro: It's a really quick, easy read.
Chip’s style and enthusiasm are contagious.. and I highly recommend (the first half.. anyway) this book for anyone and everyone, but especially people struggling with lack of motivation or fear.

And then, throughout the book Chip's view on life and people is greater than life itself!!! It resonates with me to the core of my being. It touched places that I didn't know existed. I will read this book over and over until I dream it and live it and go after things that matter to me, but I never had the courage to do. Chip's enthusiasm is infectious and it would be a dream to at least meet him in this lifetime, and a triumph to share his legacy in any way possible! Can't think of a more worthy cause!! Thank you Chip for the many gifts you share and just for being you!!!!! ❤️
