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.
Only a few people-Oprah, Ted Turner, Walt Disney, and now Chip and Joanna Gaines-have literal networks. But 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.
"Nice people finish first," says Chip Gaines, the wildly popular and admired star of HGTV's Fixer Upper and cofounder of the Magnolia brand. "And networking always works better than bridge burning." With these truths as the foundational cornerstone, Chip uses his own unique journey as a creative and entrepreneur to construct a case for the value and importance of developing strong relationships at work and outside of work. He says, "If you live your life the right way, with the right values and the right priorities, you will end up in the right relationships." Those relationships then become the currency for success.
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.
