A week doesn’t go by without me making some kind of comment about wanting a hot tub. My wife just rolls her eyes because she’s rather tired of hearing me talk about it.
The reason why I want a hot tub so badly is because I’m always sore from working out. On any given day, my legs, back, check, shoulders or abs are sore. If none of those areas are sore, my stupid calves will be. I’m actually nursing a calf strain right now as I write this. 🙂
All of this soreness is obviously self-inflicted, and truth be told, I love it. To me, soreness is a symbol of progress. This doesn’t mean I’m stupid in the gym. I don’t lift every day. I’m also trying hard to not over train. It just means that I work hard when I’m there. I push myself in every workout. Do two or three sets of heavy squats and you’ll be sore. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been working out.
One of the reasons my wife gets tired of me talking about a stupid hot tub is because I won’t buy one. The reason why is because hot tubs aren’t the best investments. Every person I’ve talked to who has had a nice hot tub ends up telling me the same thing… “I don’t use it very much. It was a waste of money.”
I recently had a phone call with one of my Cashflownaire Members who told me that he used to have a high end hot tub that cost around 10k. During the call, he said that he would much rather have that 10k instead of the hot tub. He was suggesting that he could have turned that 10k into a lot more money had he skipped the mack-daddy hot tub.
For Father’s Day this year, my wife got me this:
It’s an inflatable hot tub. LOL!
These things only cost around 300 bucks and they work well. It only took about an hour to set up. Plus, you can move it anytime you want. I’ve already moved ours once.
It is by far my most favorite Father’s Day present. In fact, I sent this text to my buddies on Father’s Day:
“Not to brag or anything, but my family got me a new inflatable hillbilly hot tub for Father’s Day! It doesn’t have a stereo or disco lights like Noals!”
Noal happens to have a high-end hot tub that he never uses.
A day doesn’t go by without me laughing at my hot tub. It’s the funniest thing ever. To be fair, it doesn’t have jets like a real hot tub does. It just makes bubbles. However, it gets very hot, which is what I’ve been wanting to help with my soreness. Right now, the water temperature is around 104 degrees!
Why am I sharing this?
Well, because I’m hoping to get you to laugh! It’s funny as hell.
The other reason is to illustrate something else that IS extremely important. I could easily have purchased a super nice hot tub. I didn’t even though I wanted one. The reason why is simply because they are bad investments. I’m not a fan of making bad investments. Instead of buying a hot tub years ago, I purchased a mobile home investment property for around the same price. This property ended up creating a 300 monthly cashflow.
My wife used one month’s income from this mobile home to buy my not-so-fancy hot tub. The Cashflownaire strategy for you to extract from this is to use your money to buy income producing assets. Use the income from your assets to buy what you want in life.
If you use your money to buy what you want, you won’t be able to buy income producing assets.

P.S. I’m thinking about starting a new business renting my hillbillly hot tub by the day. I think I can make some monthly income off of this thing!
