The most important step is taking the first one.

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.

Great Pearls of Wisdom
5 stars By John, Dec 21 2017
It was with great anticipation that I picked up this book at my local store.  Having watched Chip and his wife on their TV show - Fixer Upper.  He comes across on the show as quite a character and this comes out in his writing.  The honesty that is shared in this book is quite refreshing.  His discussion about the differences between a job and work were also insightful. This book is fairly easy reading that I recommend for those who love to learn from others (and the lessons they learned from their mistakes).
