Description

Chip Gaines likes to sweat.

That’s been true ever since he was a little pint-sized hustler selling candy and Capri Suns down at the public tennis courts in northeast Texas. You’ve probably seen him sweat on his television show, Fixer Upper. Deep in his bones he has always known that hard work yields great results, even when there’s little observable evidence of it. On the cusp of launching into what might be the hardest work he and his wife, Joanna, have ever done—building a network—Chip realized that none of it would be possible without his network of people.

Call it a network, a community, a home team. We’ve all got one. Today it might be made up of your family, your neighbors, the people you work with. But if you want a network that will pull you into a life of meaning, a life of joy and connection, you need to be intentional about choosing the people in it. People who are enlivened and electrified by the power of living according to their purpose, who are always in pursuit of lifelong learning, and who have a sincere belief that relationships are more than transactions. Chip Gaines has been building that kind of network his whole life, and he can tell you, it doesn’t come easy.

To say it requires sweat equity would be an understatement. It requires faith in people. It requires hope. And it requires a willingness to grow even when it hurts. From hard-won lessons and personal stories from Chip, No Pain, No Gaines is a by-the-bootstraps manual for building a network you can count on.

    Sad to hear Chip talk about being wild and free and then bowing to the woke race mob. As a person of color growing up in the south I have experienced racism personally. I do not in any way agree with the cancerous mentality of the woke race mob that actually divides more than brings together. I had to work hard to get myself where I am today. If you are good enough at what you do, race does not matter. Myles Monroe said that the problem with the human race is not the color of their skin, it’s with color of their lives.

    It’s okay. I like Chip, but I don’t feel like his advice from this book was all that helpful. He’s a great storyteller, and there are some good stories in here. But I had bigger expectations. If you’re someone who would like a good book on ethics, I’d say this would be a pretty good read. But nothing in this book really kicked me in the chest and said “Wow, this made the hours of listening worth it!”
