PEOPLE can exclusively announce that the stars of the hit series Property Brothers are releasing their second book, It Takes Two: Our Story, on September 5, 2017, and fans won’t want to miss the first-hand account of the 38-year-old twins’ unexpected rise to HGTV fame.
The memoir chronicles every step of their “entreprenerd” journey, as Drew describes it, from their years modeling and acting, to building their wildly successful brand, which now includes several popular TV shows, a line of home decor and furniture, their own production company, Scott Entertainment, and their first book, Dream Home.
“This is showing people what our life lessons were as we grew up, how we were raised,” Drew tells PEOPLE.
One detail the Scotts are spilling about: their unlikely first forays into entrepreneurship, which began at the ripe old age of 7, when they started making and selling fabric-covered wire hangers. The manufacturing gig was was followed by a stint as clowns for birthday parties and private events. “They were making $20 an hour and they were like 10 years old,” their mother, Joanne, tells PEOPLE.
“We didn’t want to do a paper route. We didn’t want to just collect bottles. We wanted to do something that we felt was scalable,” Jonathan says. “That’s stuck with us even now in adulthood.”

It Takes Two stands apart from their first book, a New York Times bestseller, which Drew says, “really educated people on our process when it comes to real estate, buying, selling and renovating.”
He adds, “This is about our lives. This is where we started.”
