I was a fan of Fixer Upper and I am in LOVE with all things Hearth and Hand with Magnolia at Target. So, to say I was excited to read No Pain, No Gaines is a bit of an understatement. As soon as I received my copy, I settled into a cozy corner and started to read. I didn't stop reading until I turned the very last page later that night. I just loved reading Chip's personal stories and his advice - he's all about creating a strong network of people to have in your life, along with staying true to your self. No Pain, No Gaines is part memoir, part self-help and it is a fantastic read. I absolutely LOVED it!
Chip shares his struggles, failures, and his successes in his book. We learn about how he had to pivot rather swiftly once he realized that baseball was not going to be his future. We read about what woke him up to realizing that life is right in front of you and happening all around you - pay attention. He writes with such honesty and humor, that you can't help but enjoy the conversational tone of the book. No Pain, No Gaines is an engaging read that provides some interesting food for thought. I certainly enjoyed reading the bits about the Magnolia Network and how you have to just go for it - bigger dreams can come true.
I would definitely recommend No Pain, No Gaines for fans of Chip Gaines and anyone looking for their next self-help book - you will LOVE this book!
