FU money is when you have “people”. If you have a live in staff and people who only work to take care of your shit, you have money.

One of my dads clients made Tommy Hilfiger's clothes in China for them. He is Chinese and owns several clothing factories in China. He was giving his wife $2 million per month for living expenses. Two teenage sons got $15k each per month allowance. He has FU money. Another of my dads clients was a billionaire (he died). Owned several hotels that he put casinos in. He rode the public bus to work. Wife made him a paper bag lunch. His five children worked for him and all very well paid, they are just as cheap as him. The family inherited and sold off the company for $2.9 billion. They have FU money, but don't look it or act it.

It’s all relative. What are you already accustom and what is the lifestyle you wish to have?
For some, FU money is enough to not have to work.
For others, it’s a penis shaped rocket ship.

I was working on a beach house down in Naples, FL. The owners are a super nice family, very modest, but very very wealthy. Anyhow he decided he wanted a couple jet skis that they could pull out of a marina and anchor them off of the beach behind their house. A cold front came in one night and sank the jet skis, because the ride to the marina was about an hour, so they thought they would be alright.

Directly across the street the houses there are on the intercoastal waterway, so the owner bought an old house for 5m just for the dock for his skis. He had the house gutted, basically making the house a game room, put in a basketball court, and now has somewhere just to park his jet skis. To me that was FU money.

FU money is buying a M44 cash and feeling like you just paid for a nice dinner. I think 50-100m invested nicely is FU money. Min 1-2m/month.

There is no such thing as when do you have fuck you money , the more you make the more you need and then it becomes about the deal ! You can't stop . It's a lot easier to be content with what you make and spend and just be happy with it, I'm not saying not to work hard for what you want ,but to realize how hard do you want to work for what you want or need.

I just need a small (1200 +/- sq ft) waterfront pad at the river and Brummett answers EVERY time I call with a new build and jumps me to the front of the line.

My cousin buys and flips mansions in Naples. I know about how much money he has and think it is FU money, to me anyway.

I have 2 brothers that own companies in Naples. They are in Naples because there is so much money. Brothers do not have FU money , but working towards it.

FU money in play.

When these guys go boating they'll burn more fuel on one trip than I'll burn in a lifetime...

Years ago I got tricked into a "multi level marketing" promo meeting , The only this the speaker said that I remember it "I've been rich and I've been poor and ya know what , rich is better" ...... Me personally I'm happy to pay my bills and eat , there comes a point in life not everything is about $$$
