About the Author
Chip Gaines and his wife, Joanna Gaines, are co-founders and co-owners of Magnolia Homes, Magnolia Market, and Magnolia Realty in Waco, Texas.
Chip was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico and was raised in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. He graduated from Baylor University’s Hankamer School of Business with a degree in marketing. An entrepreneur by nature, he started and sold many small businesses before Magnolia. Having grown up spending time on his granddad’s ranch in North Texas, Chip became a true cowboy at heart. He says he was made for hard labor and always preferred digging ditches to academic pursuits.
Chip loves life with his five kiddos and is head over heels for Joanna. Hand in hand is exactly how Chip prefers to work, which makes Fixer Upper even more fun to watch, and he enjoys seeing his and Joanna’s passions merge to complement and serve one another.

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.
