This eBook includes the full text of the book plus an exclusive additional chapter from Chip and Joanna that is not found in the hardcover.
An exclusive look at America's first family of renovation! Taking you behind the scenes, Chip and Joanna Gaines share the story of how they met, the ups and downs of being an entrepreneurial couple, and how they built a life they love.
The Magnolia Story is the first book from dynamic husband-and-wife team Chip and Joanna Gaines, stars of HGTV’s Fixer Upper. Offering their fans a detailed look at their life together, they share everything from the very first renovation project they ever tackled together to the project that nearly cost them everything; from the childhood memories that shaped them, to the twists and turns that led them to the life they share on the farm today.
While they both attended Baylor University in Waco, their paths didn’t cross until Chip checked his car into the local Firestone tire shop where Joanna worked behind the counter. Even back then Chip was a serial entrepreneur who, among other things, ran a lawn care company, sold fireworks, and flipped houses. Soon they were married and living in their first fixer upper.
Four children and countless renovations later, Joanna garnered the attention of a television producer who noticed her work on a blog one day, leading to the incredible Fixer Upper phenomenon.
In The Magnolia Story, fans will finally get to join the Gaines family behind the scenes and discover:
- The time Chip ran to the grocery store and forgot to take their new, sleeping baby
- Joanna’s agonizing decision to close her dream business to focus on raising their children
- When Chip buys a houseboat, sight-unseen, and it turns out to be a leaky wreck
- Harrowing stories of the financial ups and downs as an entrepreneurial couple
- Memories and photos from Chip and Jo’s wedding
- The significance of the word magnolia and why it permeates everything they do
- The way the couple pays the popularity of Fixer Upper forward, sharing the success with others, and bolstering the city of Waco along the way
And yet there is still one lingering question for fans of the show: Is Chip really that funny? “Oh yeah,” says Joanna. “He was, and still is, my first fixer upper.”
Warum es sich lohnt, auf Vertrauen und Zusammenarbeit zu setzen, zeigt Chip Gaines in diesem Buch. Chip weiß, wovon er spricht, wenn er sagt: Gute Beziehungen zu anderen und ein verlässliches Netzwerk, auf das man zählen kann, sind der Schlüssel zu Glück, Verbundenheit und Erfolg. Er und seine Frau Joanna schufen schließlich in nur wenigen Jahren ihr eigenes Heimwerkerimperium und begeistern Millionen von Fans weltweit, wenn sie in ihrer Doku-Soap mit ihrer eingespielten Crew einfache Immobilien in Traumhäuser verwandeln.
Das gelingt nicht ohne den Willen, an sich, seinem Erfolg und auch an seinen Beziehungen beständig zu arbeiten. Chip erklärt mit viel Witz anhand von hart erkämpften Lektionen und persönlichen Geschichten, wie man dabei die Menschen findet, die einen auf seinem Weg begleiten und unterstützen.
A New York Times bestseller! In a world that feels increasingly disconnected, it’s time to reclaim a life of rich, authentic connection—because we are all made better when we trust one another and work together.
In his most vulnerable book to date, Chip Gaines opens up about his lifelong pursuit of building relationships with people from all walks of life.

How does it happen? By being intentional about choosing the company you keep. Chip explains the value of seeking out people who are electrified by living according to their purpose, who will stand beside you as you tackle new challenges, and who bet on each other instead of the status quo. The key is being true to yourself, figuring out what you want to do with your life, and finding people who will lift you up along the way.

- Find the risks worth taking
- Value what you bring to the table
- Resist the status quo
- Look outside yourself and your circle and foster connections with others
- Get comfortable with being uncomfortably kind
- Live life fully awake, not asleep at the wheel

And it requires a willingness to grow even when it hurts. In No Pain, No Gaines, through hard-won lessons and personal stories all told with his trademark blend of wit and wisdom, Chip Gaines will coach you on how to make your life rich and your relationships run deep.
