GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Great LessonsSeptember 18, 2019GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have watched very little TV in the past fifteen or more years and have never seen the HGTV show, Fixer Upper. However, the title of this book and the back-cover copy caught my attention and I decided to see who Chip Gaines is. He has led an interesting life, and as the subtitle would suggest, he has done some things that would be considered stupid stuff by many. The fact is that he may not have gone about things the way someone else would have done it, but his passion carried the day. Well, that and a very strong, supportive wife and a great staff. I have to admit that I decided as a teenager that I did not want to be an entrepreneur. I think Chip had already become an entrepreneur by the age I made the decision against it. The book has some great lessons for all of us, regardless of which path we choose in life. The thing that I admired most was his devotion and commitment to his wife and children. I believe that says more about a man than any amount of money in the bank. In fact, he commented in the book that it didn't matter if he had anything else as long as he had them. That tells me he has his priorities in the right order.

Tory5 Stars Out Of 5Capital Gaines - Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff - by Chip GainesJanuary 20, 2018ToryQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Loved this book! I laughed and cried as I related to Chips' story about being a "penguin." He is so funny! I was inspired at how he looked at the bright side in thinking that Penguin's had the awesome ability to swim, unlike other birds. Giving God the glory through-out the book for the blessing's he and Joanna have had in their lives so far, too. Good inspiring book for kids, tweens & teens, too! Everyone should read this book!!!
Jen PenMidwest5 Stars Out Of 5Honest, genuine, thought-provoking and heartening...January 1, 2018Jen PenMidwestQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5SUMMARY:
As a successful and popular businessman, Chip Gaines surely knows failure, mistakes, and the long journey to achievement. In his new book, Capital Gaines, he humbly and even happily shares his advice and wisdom on life. With personal stories of false and missed steps, hard work, and strong work ethics, this book is honest, genuine, thought-provoking, and heartening. Full of insight for the trek through life, Chip Gaines ultimately stays true to himself.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Being vaguely familiar with Chip and Joanna Gaines, it was more the relevant title that caught my eye than the actual author. More than just another business book, Capital Gaines is written in a narrative form that is easy to read, full of humor and encouragement, as well as faith and the necessity for perseverance even through fear. Part memoir, part journey, part business, it is wholly inspirational, interesting, amicable and beneficial. Planning on sharing this book with the rest of my family, I wouldn't hesitate to give it as a gift to friends either. Definitely a worthwhile read, I am glad I read it and now plan to read The Magnolia Story, where it all began.
