Witty, raw, real, refreshingly honest, and oh so touching This is so much than a tell all book Gaines is well known on HGTV s Fixer Upper he s known as a funny goofy guy But this book shows us the real Gaines.He is a very positive God fearing man His outlook on life is not what you would think after watching him on TV every week I found so many little bits of information that made me love him and Jo Jo so much I will share one big one with you his work ethic is above and beyond anything you se [...]
It felt like I was reading The Magnolia Story all over again but just from his point of view I found it boring and draggy Love the Gaines but could ve done without this book.
If you re a fan of Fixer Upper and who isn t, right you are abundantly familiar with Chip Gaines He s one half of the successful duo of Chip and Joanna Gaines of Waco, Texas, who have taken their love of home renovation and decorating to the masses on HGTV This book is about Chip s beginnings and how he started out in business, met and married Joanna, and ended up with a TV show and successful interior decorating business But it s also about how Chip made a lot of mistakes along the way and the [...]
I didn t love it There are a lot of great stories and a lot of great lessons in this book but it seems as though Chip was trying to throw everyone cliche life lesson at you and convince you to be a great person by doing everything differently I think I would have liked it if the book was focused on ra couple of life lessons rather than 10 12 Each chapter was something new and felt separate from the previous chapter.
The title doesn t let you know what your going to read about but I am very glad that I read it A bit of a brag book but challenges the reader to step up and do something that you are really passionate about and that will possibly be of value to others.
The world needs Chip Gaines.I rate the book 4 stars, but Chip is a 5 star guyChip s humility, sincerity and drive to make the world a better place is inspiring I m encouraged to know that there are men in the public eye with a Chip s character, intentionality and leadership.Highly recommend
I thoroughly enjoyed this book I was a bit apprehensive, as I expected it to be a lot of repeat stufffrom the Magnolia Story But it wasn t I also figured out why Joanna fell in love with him He s got a lot of common sense and a heart of gold Love their moral compasses and their desire to do as much good in the world while they re here And I believe they single handedly put Waco back on the map in a very good way, after the Branch Davidian Episode with Janet Reno and Bill Clinton decades ago givi [...]
Enjoyed this book than their first I listened to this one rather than read it just to get the full Chip Gaines effect He s a hoot D You get the scoop on the beard, their quitting fixer upper and Chip s philosophy on how he lives life And there s no doubt Chip truly loves his family first and foremost I liked the deep appreciation he has for their employees Magnolia Market is one enormous machine The story is concluded with a few employees relating what it s like to work for Chip LOL Man oh man, [...]
3.5 A really nice, light and inspiring read He makes having vision, dreams and goals not only seem as if they are attainable, but also as if you truly owe it to yourself and the world to act on them He makes you WANT to go for it I do think that it changed direction somewhere in the middle It started out being about things he d learned from past mistakes and then kinda turned into just listening to him talk about his life and what he wants out of it I still enjoyed it, I just think it kinda lost [...]
I love the Gaines clan From their irresistible show Fixer Upper to their growing Magnolia empire, this reality show couple is one of the few tv celebs that seem like actual people This new release is perfect for readers who enjoyed their previous book The Magnolia Story, this time delving into Chip Gaines background, upbringing and the lessons he s learned along the way While he might be a goof on TV, it s easy to see this guy has a good head on his shoulders, and is a very smart businessman at [...]
Chip and Johanna Gaines have come a long long way in such a short time.This larakin Chip Gains, well you wouldn t think if you just watched him on Fixer Upper that he is such an intelligent and knowledgable man I truly enjoyed this book I read their first book and it was great having that background knowledge before reading Capital Gaines Chip talks in this book Really talks It s not like he is writing, it s just like you are having a conversation with him, the writing just flows He give the sto [...]
I really enjoyed reading Chop and Johanna Gaines first book The Magnolia Story I felt that book was really inspiring to hear how the couple started off in their relationship and marriage It is amazing how God has done some great things in their lives If you haven t read that book, I highly recommend it This latest book by Chip is fantastic Why Because we really get to hear a lot from Chip He talks a lot about himself and finally, we hear from the man who has these great goals, dreams and ambitio [...]
There are so many examples about his life and living life to your fullest, but also the importance of being a productive adult Mostly his advice is to jump in He tells some pretty funny stories on himself I like his honesty on life, marriage, success and lots I appreciate the work life experiences from people who worked for him I m also listening to The Vanishing American Adult and I think Chip and Ben Sasse would have a lot in common I really appreciate him being thankful for and honoring God [...]
Fun, fascinating, and easy read about Chip the man and how he became by hard work, following his dreams, and being willing to face risk and failure His enthusiasm is infectious Have read Magnolia Story and have enjoyed watching Fixer Upper Interesting to see Chip and Joanna at a crossroads, setting the show aside, and practicing what Chip preaches in this book We can do two things well We can t do three.
Ok I love Chip and Joanna Love their show, their family and their all around goodness Chip s book is definitely an extension of this goodness What a guy I sure wish there were people in the world like Chip and Joanna Well, let s see They have 4 children so there are at least 4 If you like Fixer Upper, you ll love this book And because Chip reads Double the reason to love it
Would you like this book if you re not already a fan No idea But I am a fan and Chip is always hilarious and inspiring so this books gets a thousand stars from me Only negative There is some recapping from his perspective of things already discussed in The Magnolia Story, but thankfully not too much
I enjoy Chip and Joanna Gaines, like a lot of people I read their other book and really enjoyed it This one was almost as good I enjoyed reading about how Chip and Joanna started their businesses, along with the other stories It is a very easy read and it definitely was inspiring.
I listened to this on audiobook and I am so glad I did It was narrated by Chip which meant that he added his little nuances and humor to the audio version So much wisdom is in this book because of him learning from his mistakes I m looking forward to reading it as well because there are so many tidbits I d love to highlight and journal about Such a good book
This wasn t as easy a read as Joanna s book, but still entertaining While the Magnolia book was of their story, I felt like this book was Chip s thoughts on life and business A good read overall.
Chip makes going for your dreams sound like the grandest adventure and not a terrifying undertaking I loved the chapter on his heart for restoring Waco Gave me so much excitement for my future business endeavors in a small town on the brink of growth
Fantastic Beautiful Inspiring Will be buying my own copy.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Who doesn t like Chip Carter Gaines from Fixer Upper Seriously This book was well written as well as funny and inspiring Chip gives glimpses behind the scenes of his life before and during the show and pushes us to achieve any goals we want I seriously recommend this book for everyone.
