Some of yall have had pretty bad experiences with CPs.  I went to one for a while.  My first visit he told me I was causing my problem and if I chose to do X, Y, or Z, I wouldn't have to keep coming back, oh and here's how you do X.  He helped me get back to a good place and I did Y, so I stopped going back. 

My first visit took a while because he did X-rays and had to determine what was going on.  But after that, he had appointments every 10 minutes.  You'd come in, he'd check you out quickly, then set you up on a machine to warm up your muscles.  Then he'd go finish 1 or 2 others, then finish you after you're warm.  He was in production mode.  I never had to wait long to be seen and after that I was usually out within 10 minutes.

It was just him and a receptionist and they could do 6 per hour.  But, I could always get a same day appointment, so I doubt they were doing 6 every hour.  Not including first visits.

Do to other things going on I've stopped doing Y, so I've been doing Z, but only sporadically, so I may go back soon before I start Y back up.  A good CP was totally worth it for me.

I've also had good experiences with CP's, including ones who ran their office like a production line.  Totally fixed my chornic migranes, to the point I'm totally fine and get adjusted a couple times a year if I feel like I need it.

But let's do the math here for a second (on behalf of the soon-to-be-millionairs).  To make a million dollars in the first year he would need 6 patients an hour, for 8 hours each day, 365 days per year, charging $60 per visit FROM DAY ONE.  He'd even end up with an extra 50k from that business model - which he could use to pay for rent, utilities, insurance, staff, or maybe he could afford to take thanksgiving and chirstmass off.  Even if the demand existed, which it does not, he couldn't possible adjust at that pace for a whole year (let alone a whole career).

Your math doesn't include other revenue options beyond adjustments.  Its still REALLY unlikely, but there are more revenue options than what you described.  Consider the prepaid wellness program...pay up front, includes x adjustments as needed for the family, as well as a supplement regimen, a personal trainer with x #of visits with a few basic machines, some massage folks with n # massages, a nutritionist (who recommends the supplements).  Each of these folks you could hire as employees, or work with as referrals, but each could drive revenue.

I just wanted to chime in and say that I also have had a great experience with a chiropractor. I hurt my lower back (L5S1 disc) weight lifting in college and had constant back pain for over a year. I finally went to a chiropractor and he sorted me right out. He never tried to sell me on any wacko stuff though, and I would have ran the other direction if he had.

Also, props to @frugalfoothills for the riveting storytelling. I can't wait to see how this all unfolds.

Exactly. I go to a chiropractor who has done wonders with my back which has been tweaked by schlepping too much heavy stuff around through my work. We have a barter; I met her in a business networking group when we both started our businesses. She has pre-paid plans, wellness plans with some progressive health conscious employers and does some car accident work. She sells Standard Process supplements, along with rollers and health related books and such. In the building she purchased, space is rented for a yoga practice, an acupuncturist and several massage practitioners. Unlike the OP's hapless family members, she worked and hustled and planned for her success, and has a hardworking partner. They didn't just loll about dreaming of fantasy riches.

And agreed: the OP is a wonderful storyteller. The updates are wickedly fun.

The sad thing is, they're going to live better lives than their frugal, responsible counterparts. They're basically acting like they're FIREd already, relaxed, healthy and enjoying life. The only difference is they'll get handouts from their parents, they'll have to pay less for liability if they get sued (because they'll have no savings) and they'll jump straight to medicaid in their old age, instead of slaving away for the "pride" of building their own stash and legacy like most of us do. I wish socialists would understand that it's always what happens when handouts are given.

so a couple directly benefiting from a capitalistic society of free handouts for the failsons of the elites while the rest work for scraps is an indictment of socialism?

I label this post 'Close But No Potato'.

I'm not trying to assign blame here on either system, but you have a very different definition of capitalism than I do.

The thing is, you people seem to think that Mr. Future Chiro Millionaire’s parents will actually, someday, stop the money train.
I am not so sure.

I have known elderly parents who finance their progeny’s lives, as we all have,  but  ones that talk about “my son the Doctor” with a shine of wonder in their eyes. Having a”doctor” in their family is a huge dream. It is a Big Giant Assed Deal. They are not about to face rwality that their “doctor” son is not really that let alone not financially stable.

You are correct. However, in that case, the real crash will come when the parents either exhaust their assets or pass away. Even if there's significant inheritance, given that lifestyle will most likely expand to fit available assets once there isn't any more money coming is when the drama (meltdown) would really start.

Unless of course they refinance to pull some of that equity out. That move was common during the last big housing boom because interest rates were low enough to make people think they could get a better ROI elsewhere.
...
Ms Squeaker, you're being charitable again.  I reckon not one in a hundred of the people who ATMed their homes in the last RE bubble did it based on a rational calculation that they could get a better ROI elsewhere./*  Nah, they used it for down payments on water lice, road lice, and pervert wagons.  (Jet skis, ATVs, winnebagi.)  Livin' the dream, with the house an endless fountain of cash to dreckify the perpetual appreciation.  Livin' the dream, and learning how a margin cascade works.
__
/* After all, it was true.  They could have.  And if they had, they'd still have the house now; their credit rating would gleam with the brilliance of a thousand suns instead of looking like something the septic tank pumper brings up; they' have big chunks of index funds; and financial reporters would be interviewing them about their genius and their stick-to-itiveness.

I'm trying *so* freaking hard to de-snarkify and be nice.

Should I just stop?

If I were single, I would have crossed the country to date you, sight unseen, just because of your awesome snarkiness. 

Please don't ever change that.   It would be a waste of an Olympic gold medal winner talent.

The licensing re-test should be occurring any day now, if it hasn't already. But the millionaire-to-be may have been off gallivanting in TN or messing with a riding lawn mower instead of studying. Is there a way to bet that he failed the retest and that there's not going to be any grand opening?

Maybe everybody here is wrong and the millionaire-to-be is already a millionaire. That would explain a lot.

Pretty cagey to extract a six-figure loan from relatives to start a business, then parlay that loan into an eight figure lottery payout.

Alright all, I'm here with an update on the Millionaires! Sorry I've been MIA for a few months, been busy with some (non-Mustachian) vacations and some VERY Mustachian hard work of my own.

I got a text on Friday morning... BIL passed his boards! My dad's reply had me rolling... "Congrats! Never had any doubt he would!" LOL. Literally had ALL the doubts.

This is GREAT news because it means they can actually open this month. Ribbon-cutting is set for the end of July (my birthday, actually... HBD to me) and then they'll be in business.

I've been proud of my sister... she's been responsible for all of the decorating and stuff in the office space. It's finally complete and I know she tried to spend as little money as possible (i.e., spending no more than $20/chair on waiting room chairs, using inexpensive cedar shakes to create a decorative wall, etc.) We were all pleased to discover that they DO in fact possess SOME modicum of common sense when it comes to spending money... refreshing, but doesn't really change the reality of their situation, which is that they have still spent a shit ton of money (and have yet to earn a dollar) regardless of how cheap their chairs were.

They have been working hard by going around and giving "health talks" at corporate offices, festivals, etc. and trying to get folks signed up for care plans by telling them they'll be crippled or have cancer if they decline. You, too, can have (guaranteed?) good health for the small cost of $1,500 per year. Ironically, I threw my back out last month unloading a Craigslist desk that I bought and flipped for some extra cash, and got berated by my sis for not being on a care plan. "$1,500 per year is very inexpensive. It's an investment in your future, by spending that money you are going to have less pain, better digestion, better overall health and immunity." I pointed out that I can spend that $1,500 investing in my future by putting it in the market where there is actual data to back up the return on my investment vs. this text message from her guaranteeing my healthy future, just because she says so. We decided to agree to disagree, there.

In all seriousness, I worry that some here on this thread feel that I'm anti-chiropractor based on my posts. That's not the case at all! I'm a long-time sufferer of back pain (thanks to some old soccer injuries) and see a chiropractor semi-regularly (as needed when my back issues flare up.) What I'm NOT a fan of is this program that my BIL did, which basically taught him how to swindle folks into spending $1,500 on a care plan which they disingenuously (in my opinion) preach will cure every physical ailment on earth. I have benefitted directly from chiropractic care, but I don't appreciate the tactics being used here.

Oh, as for the MLM... thankfully my sister seems to be too busy helping my BIL with the health talks to have gotten herself any deeper into that. She did help "host" a "workshop" on Facebook for a week where they talked about how buying this makeup would be every woman's saving grace, but that was back in May and I've seen nothing else after that THANK GOD. That's the last thing they needed.

To date: zero spin classes have been taught.

I'll try to update more frequently now that things are picking up and the business is actually opening this month! I am concerned that they'll have a great first few weeks (they have set up 200 or so appointments according to my mom) but that the traffic will die off after that. Who am I kidding... I'm sure business will be booming and I'll be back here eating my words come next year when they're not only millionaires, but BILLIONAIRES!

Sorry in advance if this is a silly question, but what is up with this running log?

People are running bets on when the Soon-To-Be-Millionaire-Family-Members are going to run out of money, therefore asking family/parents for money.

We're keeping the running list for a sense of pride and accomplishment of something that will never impact our lives, but makes us happy as posters on the Antimustachian Wall of Shame and Comedy.

Aaahhh, that makes sense now. Thanks! I must have missed that earlier in the thread.
Let’s see, I’ll put my guess out at March 2019. What does the winner get, aside from bragging rights? :)

Things are looking prosperous in the last update. So I think my guess for 15th of august was too pessimistic. They might just survive that date and ask for money later.

The fact that sister is now being sort of frugal might also mean that they have spent most of the loan and can't afford more...

I had this thought, too. Not sure how much they've actually spent but I have to think reality will start to set in at SOME point. Maybe we're there?

yes and no, could be the realization that 50 chairs x 150$ is a lot of money especially right after paying the contractors, electrician, vendors, utility deposits, rent... Seeing a lot of money go out the door within a small period of time can be hard even if there is a good bit of the loan left.  I have seen new entrepreneurs get overly cheap when setting up the place of business.  If sister changes her personal spending habits that might be a better indicator of what remains of the loan.

Put me down for October 29, 2018.

I hope to win an epic prize if I'm right, such as a photo of the office!

Out of the running! But i'm glad for them the good news he passed, and they are actually going to open the office. Feel the whole chiropractor health plan = toting that various ailments are cured by body adjustment is kind of sketchy, but whatever.

I got a text on Friday morning... BIL passed his boards! My dad's reply had me rolling... "Congrats! Never had any doubt he would!"

Are were sure that the next text to Father-In-Law wasn't, "I might need xxx dollars to get this money machine fully up and operating"?
