Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff by Chip Gaines – Review


Book Description

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.

My Thoughts

This latest book by Chip is fantastic because we really get to hear a lot from Chip. He talks a lot about himself and we hear from the man who has great goals, dreams and ambitions. I love hearing the story of how he got started in his career and why he helps others, but more importantly who helped him. This book is extremely inspiring and will definitely motivate you. It is a quick read and you feel like you are sitting down talking with Chip over a cup of coffee! This book is amazing and will give you the motivation to seek purpose if you haven’t found it. I love the tidbits of wisdom, but they aren’t too much. I highly recommend checking it out!
