About the Author
Chip Gaines is the co-owner and cofounder of Magnolia and a New York Times bestselling author of The Magnolia Story and Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff. He is constantly reinventing the wheel on what we can achieve together and is always eager to give back to individuals and communities.
Born in Albuquerque and raised in Dallas, Chip later graduated from Baylor University’s Hankamer School of Business with a marketing degree. An entrepreneur by nature, Chip has started a number of small businesses and has remodeled hundreds of homes in the Waco area.
But more than any good adventure or hard-working demo day, Chip loves an early morning on the farm and a slow day spent with Jo and their five kids.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
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!!!!! ❤️
