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. A New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Publisher’s Weekly bestseller!

The funny and talented Chip Gaines is well known as the star of HGTV’s Fixer Upper, as well as a 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.

Capital Gaines offers you a ringside seat as Chip relives some of his craziest antics and the lessons learned along the way, written with Chip’s trademark humor.

In addition to personal stories from Chip’s journey, you'll discover:

- How to work toward 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
- What it takes to truly balance your family and career

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

What a cool person. I'm not one to listen to or read many books but this one spoke to me. If everyone would follow the principles of Chip Gaines the world would be a better place.

It validated everything I thought of Chip Gaines. Fixer Upper is one of my favorite shows. I was hoping that the Chip you see on TV was the same in person. He did not disappoint. A very talented couple who are a great team in business and in life! It was not what I expected but Chip's narration makes it very enjoyable!

The book was not what i was expecting but it is well done. I was hoping for a few more details in his business practices. But I didn’t joy the book and his stories of his journey. I enjoyed the realness that he presented.
