Spoiler alert #1: This is a book about networks
Spoiler alert #2: This is not a book about networking
Not networking in the traditional sense anyway. It’s not about how to leverage your interactions with everyone you meet in an all-out sprint to get ahead. It’s about how to find a group of real people who will stand beside you as you bust your butt, who believe that authentic human connection is more important than any other earthly thing, and who bet on each other instead of the status quo. People with beating hearts and passions who live and love and try and fail and try again. People who lift you up and give your life meaning.
Written for anyone who believes that relationships are more than transactions, and who is looking to build a network of people they can count on, No Pain, No Gaines will coach you on how to
- look outside yourself and your circle and foster connections with others
- value what you bring to the table
- resist the status quo
- find the risks worth taking
- engage and be awake to life, not asleep at the wheel
- get comfortable with being uncomfortably kind
- build a network you trust and then trust the network you build
Chip Gaines has been building that kind of network his whole life, and he can tell you, it doesn’t come easy. The good stuff never does. It requires faith in people. It requires hope. And it requires a willingness to grow even when it hurts. In No Pain, No Gaines, through hard-won lessons and personal stories, Chip will coach you on how to build a network of your own that will make your life rich and your relationships run deep.
