Amazing! 'Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff' by Chip Gaines
About the book:
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 4 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.
In Capital Gaines, we walk alongside him as he 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.
Amazing! I thought this might be more of the same as what was in the Magnolia Story, which was great also, but there was a lot here. You really get to know Chip's heart, his beliefs, motives, passions, what makes him tick. I admire him even more now. It's amusing and informative. I recommend it for everyone, not just fans of his show!
