Fu money = point of true financial liberation

• Money can’t buy happiness
• Rich people are assholes
• You can afford to wait
• You have to be lucky
• You have to be a cheapskate
• You have to get rich slow
• You have to work hard to make money
• You have to be perfectly ready
• DIG: daily income goal:
Are we making more money today?
What’s the most efficient use of my time right now?
What’s the payoff of this activity?

One of the worst books I've ever read. Dan is copying another famous (worth reading, unlike him) copywriters and authors.
I'm really sorry for people like Dan because they have sick ego and they are not aware of it at all. He probably wrote this book just to leave some trace in this world not thinking about quality at all.
If someone reads this book after all, just don't get mad because you've lost some precious time reading about his braggings and glorifying his ego.

I like Lok's videos, but this book.... What a shame
But he has some cool advices that he wrote:
"Money is replaceable. Time is NOT. The seconds you used up reading this paragraph are gone forever. You can't get them back."

and 5 pages later "I absolutely hate it when people waste my time. It's worse than stealing money from me." and then repeats the first quote... The same way he does the entire book.

Unfortunately this book is only Dan bragging and a massive ego trip.
A huge funnel to make you buy

Mr Dan Lok. Gentleman in red suit.

This book is good for experienced readers, or if you looking for first “economical manual”. It’s easy to read.

I recomend following Mr. Dan:s Instagram feed allso. It’s full of gold.

Very honest book about the path to become rich! the last last chapter to me was more like a biography, which some of them he mention in YouTube, but a little more in detail. Overall it was a very good book, but you must tolerate the swearing and rough language! The contents are the gold after all!

This is the best book for people who keep jumping from one business to another. This is a must read for any entrepreneur.

FU Money Book Summary : *Spoiler Alert*

Part 1: The F.U. Money Lifestyle

Most people don’t do what they really want to do. They do what someone else wants them to do.

You can’t hit a target you can’t see.

Two proven ways to make your f.u. money:

1. The Slow Way: Build a Big Nest Egg

2. The FAST Way: Automated Income Vehicles

Forget Passive Income

Plain and simple: it doesn’t work.

Exactly the kind of book that gets you nodding in agreement and rethinking many of the concepts you held. I could do this over and over again. I will surely read it again in the near future

This is no book. It is a Marketing Campaign and a decent one at that.

The contents of this book do their best to sound non-conventional, yet end up as rants at best.
Under the heavy pile of self-loathing, over-confidence and anecdotes blown out of proportion, there are still certain things which make sense, just because they are either common sense or borrowed from prevalent books in this domain.

Content is not well researched, nor is it structured. Most of the things are disconnected and hardly ma

A classic rags-to-riches story, who doesn't love that?

Listened to the audiobook and it was hilarious to me. Dan Lok came from nothing, produced a life he wanted, and basically doesn't work at all. I think this is what makes his story and message unique. He can do more with his business and make more money if he wants to, but he's basically touching it an hour a week and then going off and doing other things.

To create a personal ATM as such is a dream, that is possible because there's actually p

Dan's Asian voice is a recipe for turning words into cash. Outsourcing is a key to scale. Love his Daily income goal and how he breaks down the value of time.

I love the way Dan Lok's voice comes alive from the text in the pages. There is such an honesty about this book and they way it is compiled.

There are some principles that are known as standard in the business world within this book, but there are some gems and nuggets of counter intuitive nuanced principles that flip the status quo on its head. I think these are the things that stand out from this book. Dan Lok really gives a different perspective on the so called "tried and tested through time"

The author Dan Lok is the real life successful entrepreneur who had applied the 80/20 principle in his life. It is intriguing as the author speak through his self-experience in the book with a non-descriptive but conversational way. The steps to wealthy in Dan Lok way 1)have at least one high income skill(invest ourselves through books, seminars, workshops) 2)Identify the market (do marketing-research on what people want to buy) 3)operate a scalable business( start with low risk business and les ...more

Dan Lok is the marketer & salesman of the moment. In large part due to a well oiled marketing blitz on the social/influencer channels I follow. I got his book free through one of those ads, and having seen (& most importantly tested out) some of his sales techniques already, I knew the book would be useful. Similar to his HTC program, the initial part of this book is a lot of work on unpicking money myths & shifting the reader's mindset.

I got a free download of this book from Dan Lok's website.
I really enjoyed his frankness and speaking voice. He is very direct and has a no nonsense approach. At first I thought I wouldn't like him because of that, but he is very personable and there is something in his delivery that makes him likable.
The last 20-30 pages of the book were the best and delivered the most meat. I kept hoping that he would share his personal story in detail with exactly how he started, and he did. If I were editi

My mother used to say, money doesn't grow on trees. However, money is made from paper and that actually does ...

Dan Lok's "F.U. Money" is a practical book: It starts to ingrain the right mindset for a life in abundance. Wealth might not only be measured in money, but indeed it's a good pointer. As usual, the numbers tell us everything about our lives.

My biggest F.U. Money insights:

* You don't want money, you want the freedom money can buy
* Don't focus on the money, focus on the value you create

An extremely entertaining book that doesn’t give a damn about what you think. It’s colorful and cursing language was succinct and to the point. I liked the F. U. Style of the book, as it does match with the persona he creates.

Instead of calling it financial freedom, Lok calls it F. U. Money, which is a clever and memorable way of thinking about money. The idea is basically making so much god damn money that you can say “fuck you” to your boss, the haters, and literally anyone else. That is one

In reading this book, it is straight forward in delivering its point. The Multimillionaire, Dan Lok, is forward in his information as he states his series of "Lokisms" and gives scenarios of failure and success. The Lokisms define the mindset needed to over come many of the self defeating and misleading perspectives that can hinder business growth. As Dan Lok illustrates his steps into growing and maintaining a business, he also encourages acting immediately to plan and work for your goals on a ...more

Nothing extraordinary or groundbreaking, but a good frank reminder of the foundational principles into creating money and wealth that is on your terms (or the terms that you should look to create money and wealth with) - that provides real freedom - straight, to the point and blunt - minus the fluff which was also good - slightly biased at times to certain methods but they are indeed good nevertheless!

One negative I felt that Dan (the author) was dismissive of some other good wealth / money maki

I like that it was an honest straight to the point book. He says it how it is.

Although most of it is from his own experience and opinion only, and most of it is not original, it does what it was intended to do - it gives a no nonsense guide about his perspective and strategy around making more money and creating more personal freedom.

He admits that it's just his perspective, that there are more ways to do it, that you don't have to agree, and that it's not original. This is what I loved most ab

I love Dan Lok but if you have been following his media on youtube and Instagram then this book will sound very familiar to what he teaches on a daily basis. It starts with the high-income skill, then the leverage of your work, then creating a business and then investing. I get it. And there were some surprises on certain chapters and things that shocked me, but this is the book is for people that already know what their strength is or are in absolute need for change.

F.U. Money is a book by Dan Lok on increasing wealth and managing lifestyle. The book is broken up into three parts - Money lifestyle, money myths, and money mindset. Dan takes an anti-traditionalist view on building wealth and an authentic “in your face” delivery of the material presented. He manages to bridge the gap between personal finance and business in an easy to digest way. You won’t enjoy this book if you struggle with tough love or cursing (neither bother me personally).

I know some people get pretty bent up over the grammar and spelling errors, but the content is pure gold! It has shifted my mindset around my business so much and given me confidence and a concrete plan of how to move ahead. What stood out to me the most was what he said about profit margins, personality driven marketing, and all the criteria that a business needs in order to be successful and sustainable.

A shot in the arm. Fresh perspective on what a business is and should be. I didn't think I'd agree with all of it, but in fairness he knows his stuff - every point is well-argued and based on prior experience. This isn't an academic book and it's not one of those cringeworthy self-help books. It's written by a guy who has been in the trenches and has learned by doing, and who genuinely has something to offer. I found it really enjoyable, uplifting and exciting - it made me want to keep going at ...more

Much teachings of the book, I already read in The Circle of Profit ebook but not much details about the funnel system and back-end sales. Some business tips and some quotes from financial books. The difference: the author teaches to concentrate on one niche of business at first and create multiple products to sell there or multiple sources of income instead of many niches which will be overwhelming. It's ok to have many niches in business if you already master it like he did. He also said that y ...more

Lol, the title says it all.

Look, Dan Lok ain't your ordinary dude. And he knows it.

He may appear brash/cocky, but I do appreciate the fact that he owns it and will give a justifying reason for it.

And you'll be hard pressed to debate the statements he's saying. If every individual did have FU money, would they be working at the same jobs they're currently employed at?

His perspective on time and money is wisdom. This idea of delegating lower level tasks in exchange for more time to pursue what

Man, this is one of the best book I have ever read.

I highly recommend to all teenagers or all graduate student s to read. I can tell that by reading this book the author wrote this book out of his own experience. He really experienced it himself, he didn't make up the story.

I just would like to say thank you very much to Dam Lok for sharing your knowledge with us. The money that I paid for this book is a thousand times definitely worth it.

I have started following your YouTube channel now.

In my own opinion, I like how real and honest and straight to the point this book gets and I think it may be helpful... But there are some things I do not personally agree with. Like when Dan Lok said, "Money is the root of all good."
It is not. There are people who are genuinely happy with their life having enough to go by and being with their family and friends. With that said, I do believe that being rich as he said can give you TIME... Time you can spend with what matters most to you, which
