FU, Dan Lok

Updated: Feb 17

Dan Lok Quits

He’s so shiny and rich.

I never wanted a job. I just wanted to be free and happy.


I still don’t want a job. I still want to be free… Okay, I’m happy enough.

But I want to be ecstatic.

I need more money for less work. Way more money for way less work.

I’m a teacher. I teach kids with “complex behaviours”. That means they abuse me, throw chairs at me and spit in my face. I can handle that. I can smile and be kind to them. Treat every day as a fresh start. I can.

But I don’t want to, so I recently started my own business; www.rjhcopy.com.

Dan Lok says I Can Do it

He believes in me, too.

I’ve got a plan and this is my first action. I’m writing this down, just in case I “make it”, so that it can be my success story and can make me even richer. Hell, even if I fail miserably, perhaps this will be the ironic story of failure which makes me millions.

By the way, I’m reading Dan Lok’s FU Money all about how to make enough money so that you can tell your boss to “funk off” and buy whatever cool stuff you want. I was. I pretty much finished it.

I had a telephone interview the other night night from one of Dan Lok’s people; you know? The really rich guy who really lets you know how rich and successful he is. Damn, I’m jealous. They are trying to sell me the course. They were, in their words, trying to help me. They set me an assignment: watch a webinar and write down 3 things I took away from what it taught. It was all a bit pyramid-schemey, though they insisted it wasn’t. Chester, Dan’s mate, said they’d call me back. Do my assignment and if I did good, maybe they’d let me on the course.

They didn’t call back at 7pm the next day like they said. Oh well.

The three things I took from the free webinar?

1. I can do it by myself, without paying them. I know what I have to do, and it’s up to me to get on the computer and do it. Take action. Half term is coming up. I got this.

2. I have the skills I need already. I may not be a master, but I’m good enough to make a start, the rest I’ll learn as I go. I got this.

3. If what they told me is the truth (dubious), they need me more than I need them. They can let me do the course for free, a scholarship, and train me up to be an excellent colleague, or I can do it solo. Funk you guys. I got this.

In the best possible way, Funk You, Dan Lok. I got this.

Dan Lok Doesn't Need Money

That's right, Dan. Having a Bentley, a private jet and a sweet suit makes you rich.

I watched the webinar, read half of the free copy of F U Money. I get it. Action. I get it. Don’t trust people you don’t know to do stuff for you. Do it your funking self.

I’ve made my plan. One more week until half term. Five nights to read up on the missing little details and then a solid 9 days of action. A few hours each day, because that’s the whole point isn’t it? Less work, more money. More time to enjoy my freedom.

You already helped me a lot, Dan Lok. Really. Sincerely.

Funk you very much.
