How many of you have a “IDGAF” fund (basically an emergency fund) so that you have the freedom to quit your job whenever you want?

Mine’s more like ‘A when I get forced out by AI or ageism’ fund.

It would likely be a lot less money to do so

I am saving to buy a house, so my IDGAF is actually a I Do Very Much Give a Fuck Fund.

Got one. Took a few years to build up, but it transformed how I approach life and business. FU money has the ability to create much needed confidence. Did for me anyway. Like the balls to quit because you’re being asked to give up a month of your life for a meaningless pitch.

Saved enough to cover 9-12 months of expenses.

I did. But then I got married and ended up with two step-kids. I love them, but holy shit do they cost a lot.

I had one and used it. Had to for my mental health reasons. Most of it was depleted so hopefully I can build it back up again.

I mean, I have savings...but I’m pretty sure that’s just because that’s the adult thing to do.
