The most important step is taking the first one. Capital Gaines is the perfect book for anyone looking to succeed not only in business but more importantly in life.

Book Synopsis

National Bestseller--New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, Publisher's Weekly

The most important step is the first one. Dive into Chip Gaines' personal playbook and start learning how to succeed in business--and in life.

The funny and talented Chip Gaines is well known as a TV star, renovation expert, bestselling author, husband to Joanna, and father of five 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.

Now a #1 New York Times bestselling book, Capital Gaines offers readers a ringside seat as Chip relives some of his craziest antics and the lessons learned along the way.

Readers will learn:

  • How to work towards success--and how to determine what that looks like
  • The power of living in a way that rejects fear
  • How to embrace small acts of courage and be bold to go all-in

Capital Gaines is the playbook you need to start redefining success and going after it, no matter what that means to you.

When reading this book I felt like I was able to picture everything Chip was talking about. All the stories leading up to the life him and Joanna have now. It was really cool how it was written. It’’s definitely one that’s hard to put down once you start. It was on sale when I bought it as well which was just an added bonus.

I bought it for my dad for Christmas, and he immediately started reading it as soon as he opened it. He isn't a big reader, but really likes Chip, so I think his reaction speaks volumes about this book that he would ignore the rest of his gifts to read instead.
