Chip Gaines offers his hilarious wit and trademark wisdom on the value of network-building, the relationships and connections that are so critical to our success and happiness both in business but also in the greater arena of life. An important yet entertaining look at the value of building strong relationships, written by the hugely successful star of HGTV’s Fixer Upper and the new Magnolia network.
Every successful person has a network of people—friends, family, and business associates—who serve as a support system. This “community” shapes a person’s identity, behavior, and values, which ideally include kindness and being considerate of others and their needs. In this follow-up to his previous books, Capital Gaines and Magnolia Story, Chip uses his own unique journey as a creative and entrepreneur to construct a case for developing strong relationships at work and outside of work.
Sharing principles such as “networking always works better than bridge burning” and the importance of listening, Chip explains how connecting with others has been the cornerstone of his family’s success and how these principles can pay off in your life too.
Entertaining anecdotes and behind-the-scenes tidbits from Chip and Joanna’s latest ventures, including the new Magnolia Network, make this a must-read for fans of the Magnolia brand. Part business book and all manifesto for living a fulfilled life, Building a Network unpacks the beauty and purpose of embracing kindness and connection with those around you.
