164. How to Earn F(orget) You Money

Some people believe you need to make a huge income to earn the freedom to tell people "No". That's not the case. I'll tell you how.

Some people believe you need to make a huge income to earn the freedom to tell people "No". That's not the case. I'll tell you how.








Hey, it's Wade here. Hope you are doing awesome today. I want to talk to you about "F" You money. Now, I'd heard this phrase a while ago. I had not heard it before.


And it's a concept of making enough money that you can tell people forget you or someone of other word that might start with F. And basically it's really more related to another type of F, which is freedom. The freedom to be able to do what you want, to live the life you want and really just tell others that, hey, I'm going to do it my own way. Now, if you love the bravado of "F" You money, you can make lots of money and you can be that person that goes into a place and you tell people that you're going to do things your way and they can stop you. If that's your energy, great.


Go make truckloads of money. Enjoy the ride. But there's another way to look at this and that is to simply live lightly. If you don't have huge expenses, it does not take a lot of money to tell people forget you. If you are able to pass up at the latest gadget or toy and you can wait until it's on sale, let's say for Black Friday, you can tell people forget you.


If you're able to be good with who you are and where you're at in your relationships with people and you don't need to fit in, you don't need to have the latest toy, you don't need to go to fancy restaurants at the prime time. Maybe you go to a different time, or maybe you buy food at a different time and you make the fancy meal rather than paying a Mark up for it. If you can't afford it, you can tell people forget you. So none of this is an assault on having money. Having money is awesome.


If you've earned money and you've served people and you've made a lot of money, that's great. I am all about that. What I'm not about is putting myself in a situation where in some way I'm dependent upon somebody or I'm dependent upon some product or some need that I have to fit in to where I can't get what I want unless I have a certain amount of money. And that's where the core of this concept of Fu money comes from, is being able to say forget you. I'm going to do what I want.


So I'm going to suggest you, if you look at your budget and you look at the things you own, look at some of the purchases and reflect back to what are the things you've purchased that you've overpaid for or what are the things where at times you've really kind of been nervous about it and you bought it and later you had buyer's remorse because you thought, you know what, I probably shouldn't have paid that much for that, or I only bought that because everybody else was buying it or I read a report Or I read a magazine article and it might be I read this article that said that was a good reason to do it with stocks. Sometimes people are buying I've done this and lost lots of money with stocks and real estate foolishly not doing my due diligence and just kind of going with what the market said or what somebody said or what the media was saying. And so again, I encourage you to consider that if you want to be able to tell the world, you know what, I don't have to do what you want to do. It doesn't have to be as aggressive as "F" You because if you're happy about life, you're probably not going to say "F" You you're going to say, hey, you know what?


It's cool that you're doing that and it's cool that you're selling that for that amount of money and it's cool that you're doing whatever you're doing.


That's groovy man. That's not what I'm doing. So I hope this serves you I hope this is something that if you have children, you help them understand it with all of the name brands and technology that's out there, again, sometimes a name brand or a high quality technology can mean that it's going to last for a long period of time, that you're going to be treated well, and if something goes wrong with the product that that company is going to stand behind it, that's the upside of sometimes buying products that are maybe cost a little more, but they're delivered at a high level. And at the same time, there are certain things that are trends or fads or just way too expensive for what you can afford without shifting your life, without leaning too much into something, without giving up too many things. And those are the things we need to be able to say without anger.


Just forget you or maybe postpone you for later. I hope this helps you if you have any questions on this or anything of the work that I do, Please reach out to me. As always, I look forward to helping you impact more people and make more money in less time. Do what you do best So you can better enjoy your family, your friends and your life So you can say forget you when you want to and you're you can enjoy the journey all the way through. Thanks so much for listening.
