Master of Money Psychology Phil Laut Passed Away

I have some sad news here…

The Master of Money Psychology, best selling author of Money is My Friend, coauthor of Wealth Without a Job and close friend of mine for many years, Philip R. Laut passed away on March 11th, 2010.

I know many of you knew Phil and thought you might like to know.

Phil Laut was a real trooper.  He worked all the way to end even while he was in hospice care.  You may be wondering why in the world would he do that?

Here’s why…

Because, he loved what he did and he was living his Life on Purpose.

Phil affected thousands of lives with his best selling book Money is My Friend.  It was published in 18 different languages and sold over 400,000 copies.  He also affected thousands more lives with our best selling book Wealth Without a Job.

I really don’t know how many lives he affected for sure.  I do know it’s a lot.  I also know he made a significant contribution to all of us.

He loved what he did and he made this world a better place to live.  Helping others earn more money as Entrepreneurs doing work you love is what he was all about.  It gave him joy to see the changes in people’s lives.

It’s sad for me to lose my friend because I will never be able to talk with him as I once did.

I am thankful that he’s in a better place now and he no longer has to suffer.

I know that Phil would want us all to continue seeking work we love and keep pursing our true Purpose in Life.  He would want us to take the lid off our income and become prosperous at what we do.

Phil Laut was a good friend and I will miss him dearly.

If you had a connection with Phil Laut, go ahead and Write a Comment on the Wealth Builders Blog about how he affected your life.  I know when you Write a Comment it will also inspire others and honor Phil and what he did.

I look forward to seeing all the great things you have to say about my friend Phil Laut.

Sincerely,

Dr. Andy Fuehl

  • I just learned about Mr. Laut from my friend and mentor Jerry Clark as he had made a recording of an interview with Mr. Laut that I listened to and really enjoyed. I wanted to buy the book everyone speaks about and found out he died about 4 years ago. It saddens me when something like this happens. A remarkable man Mr. Laut was and I thank you for honoring him here. I look forward to reading his book Money is my friend.

  • So sorry to hear of Phil Laut’s passing, I had just re-found my very well used signed copy of Money is my friend, and was re-reading it. When I thought I kind of know what my blockage is and thought I wonder if Mr Laut is contactable on the internet, as I feel there is something I felt was missing and wanted to ask about, and so have sadly just found his obituary of 3 years ago.
    Thankyou Mr Laut for being there in your book. Your humanity shines through and speaks
    personally to us throughout the years. You have been a guiding light, and have put forward such positivity.
    Thankyou for your words.
    Yours sincerely

  • And today, just like a few others of you, I googled Phil\’s name. I\’ve been coaching a friend of mine and took out my well worn copy of Money is my Friend, a wonderful, simple book I acquired in the 1980\’s when I hung out with the rebirthing community in Seattle- Phil, Sondra, Leonard,Jody,Bobby Birdsall,Fred L, wherever you are, bless you– and Phil is just a laugh away, I can feel him. I\’m his pupil again, for sure! Thank you Phil for being so awesome. Your book and your laughter made a huge impact on my life. Suzanne

  • I was reading the book in Spanish (I am from Venezuela), that’s very interesting and inspiring. It is very generous to share your knowledge and experiences with other nowadays that does not happen much. Mr. Laut, thank you very much for writing this book.

  • I never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Laut and have enjoyed
    his book tremendously and still read it so I can master this awesome work.
    My sympathies for the loss of your friend.

  • In the late 1970s I was in my late twenties. My job paid little, and I had just a little cash. I was introduced to the book: Money is My Friend. I read it and began thinking about and utilizing what it told me. As the book told me, I began reading high quality materials that helped me learn more. I also formed more concise affirmations. I built a personal financial fortune that has continued increasing I accomplished it easily with only a little, enjoyable, effort. Mostly I thought about my money making money. My fortune continues increasing without very much effort or thinking and my income always exceeds my expenses. I still have the book and review it from time to time. Simply touching the pages of the book conditions my consciousness to attract even more money to me.

    I am thankful for Phil and all he has shared with us. It is shocking to hear he has left his physical form that we got to be familiar with. May the vivation joy love bliss continue in his current journey….

  • So sad to hear the news about Phil. I read his book and went to his seminars in New York City and did several training sessions with him. I have a completely different relationship with money than I did before I encountered his work. He was always someone I thought I would enjoy speaking to again. My long delayed condolences to his family, friends, and loved ones.

  • I was moved and saddened by Dr. Fuehl’s remarks on Phil Laut. I had a lot of fun with Phil when he lived in Los Angeles in the 1980s and, although I didn’t feel this at the time, when I thought of him in later years I always hoped he found a way to talk about his Vietnam experiences. Like all of us, he was many things: for me, he was a sweet, kind man. My condolences to his loved ones.

  • Phil Laut was my Vivation (a form of Rebirthing) teacher in ’93 in Udine Italy – It was an intense and wonderful training that greatly improved my life and provided me with so much growth. It is sad to hear of his death – and causes me to continue to live in wonder – what caused his name to
    pop into my mind and ‘google’ his name – the universe is mysterious indeed and all of us here on vacation. Thank you Phil for your input in the lives of so many – I’m sure you are in Paradise

  • Gosh. I was so shocked and saddened when I talked with Andy Silver yesterday and he told me about Phil’s passing. I hadn’t been in touch with Phil much this past year although I thought of him many, many times. Many, many years ago, I found out that Phil was living in Charlotte and since I was

  • I live in Charlotte NC and knew Phil as a friend. I had read Money Is My Friend in the mid-80′s when I was a rebirther and was delighted to discover in the late 1990′s that he lived in my adopted home town. We studied NLP together, enjoyed French food, and talked about ‘real stuff.’ In 1999 I opened my divorce mediation practice and he helped me name my website. He helped me with a corporate consulting contract and we served as sounding board to each other. I hadn’t talked with him for quite awhile and learned yesterday on the Internet that he had passed away. How sad and what a shock for the many people who loved him as I did and valued his friendship. May we all do what we love and help so many people. Thank you Phil.

  • Phil helped me more than any guru. I hope to meet him in the next life :D

  • I worked with Phil back in 2006 for at least 18 months. After meeting him at the Wealth Without a Job seminar in Phoenix, I used Phil as my first ever mentor.

    Phil taught me many things and because of how new i was to business i really learnt a lot from him. He gave me added confidence, was always encouraging and patient with me as i started out.

    The main thing i will always remeber him for though was his ability and success at helping move my focus from wanting to go out drinking to that of a running a succesful business and managing profitable investments. In 1 week i earn’t more in my business than 1 month in my job and it was down to Phil’s teaching and ability to shift my mindset from negative to mega positive!

    Thanks for being a great teacher, mentor & friend. I will always remember what you did for me.

  • Thanks you thank you thank you Phil for your support and love.
    And thank you Andy for putting this on the net.

    I attended a number of Phil’s workshops in the early 90′s and Phil stayed at my place a couple of times. He was a great inspiration and kind too.

    Love to you all.

    Phil had a group of people that her certified to Emerging Entrepneur consultin?

    Does anyone know how I can get the contact information for his certified consultants?

  • Oh my gosh!!! I am so sad to hear of Phil’s passing! Phil was a special man that provided SO much wisdom, love, and committment! I cannot even begin to express my gratitude in words. Thank you Phil for all that you gave me!!!

    Rest in peace my dear friend Phil.

    Love always :)

  • I am sad to hear that Phil passed away.

    When I first read his book ‘Money is My Friend’ several years ago, I felt inspired enough to write to him and arrange to meet up with him. This was the first and only time I had ever contacted any author of a book that inspired me!

    I live in Malaysia, so meeting up with him in Charlotte, North Carolina was not an easy matter. In the year 2000, when my wife and I attended my son’s graduation at Purdue University, I arranged with my son to hire a car and we drove through several states in the USA to see Phil Laut at his home in Charlotte.

    Yesterday by coincidence while clearing out a drawer in my desk, I came across a card from Phil thanking me for our visit in May 2000. He also encouraged me to begin writing – ‘doing what I love to do’ – but I had kept postponing doing that. It was only last year that I finally started on a blog called Daily Happy Living.

    I learned a lot from Phil about the Psychology of Money and wrote a review to this effect about his book ‘Money Is My Friend’ on Amazon. He liked it enough to ask for permission to use it when he began his online venture.

    Unfortunately, I had not kept in contact with him for the past few years. So it was a shock to hear about his demise.

    Thank you Phil for all your inspiration and encouragement! You will always remain a blessing to thousands!

  • I attended a seminar with both Andy and Phil in San Francisco (2006) and it was well done and my husband and I received alot of inspiration from it. We are deeply saddened to learn of Phil’s passing…I believe that he made this decision because he knew that he had lived his life on purpose and he had given 150% of help and encouragement to those who needed it. He was a man of principle as well as brilliant ideas. He will be missed and Andy, he needs you to keep the light and bear the torch….the quest for knowledge never dies. Phil was a blessing!

  • Is it not interesting how life works?! I first meet Phil on a conference call with Jeff Combs. Jeff was doing motivational calls for a company called The Tax People.net I made a comment that if he ever came to St Louis I would like to be able to meet him and pick him up at the airport and take him to his hotel. What we speak DOES come into existence! A few years later this in all reality happened. Phil came to St Louis to do a How To Win The Money Game and it was I who picked him up at the airport and drove him to his hotel. It is because of Phil Laut that I meet Andy Fuehl. Part of who the man who Tom Nash is today,is because of the things I learned from Phil & Andy I will be forever grateful for my association and frindship with “The Master of Money” Phil Laut

    Hi everybody,

    I was a private coaching client of Phil’s for about a year recently because we stretched out our program forever because we liked each other’s company very much. I had read Money is my Friend back around 1986 and been helped by it. This happened at the time that I was studying the breathing method called Rebirthing which Phil and Leonard Orr and Jim and Annie Leonard had pioneered. Although I had already been meditating quite some time this was the first time that I was able to experience the wealth of the inner world through my own opening. About 3 years ago when I wanted to make some changes in my entrepreneurial life I approached Phil to be his coaching client. Ironically in the wake of the recession my business life did not ‘improve’ very much and yet I do not blame Phil for this or anyone else. Sometimes in life there needs to be an illness and a death in order to go onto the next phase and this has to do with a lot more than money but the full experience of life and that which is beyond experience! In our case Phil and I shared a great richness in the consultation and that is worth much more than money…and his transition comes the day before the March 12 passing of my own father from cancer 8 years ago. Anyhow I am felt very sad and touched to hear this news because Phil transcended a wealth in life that is beyond paper notes and now his richness will continue to expand. Love to all the people who understand this message in the spirit in which it is intended, Kavi

  • I am saddened by the passing of Phil Laut. I first met Phil a few years ago doing a one day seminar based on the Wealth Without a Job intensive. What impressed me was his understanding of how people relate to money. That first meeting was instrumental to me starting on the path to examining my beliefs and doing work with Wealth Builders. I am very grateful for Phil’s input and his sharing of his knowledge and gifts. I remember him fondly.

    I had purchased Money is My Friend years ago but never read it. I picked it up off my bookshelf last year and found it so readable and valuable. I underlined so many things in and just picked it up again last month to reread. I didn’t know Phil personally but I had read a lot of his stuff and listened to some of his work as well.

    I am sorry our world has lost another great humanitarian. It will always be easy to remember him for he died on the same day as my beautiful cousin LuAnne; on my sister’s birthday.

  • Phil,

    Siempre te llevare en mi corazon. Tus palabras siempre hacian entender todo de una forma mas sencilla, en la cual nunca habia pensado antes. La frase que siempre recordare de ti es: “Y que!”

    I will always keep you in my heart. Your words always made everything look so much easier in a way I was never familiar to. The words I will always remember you saying to me are: “And, so what?”

    I have met Phil through my husband Clint. Since Clint read his book “Money is my Friend,” he became his follower and me as well. We met over the phone, and he recommended I read the Spanish version of his book. I was very excited because after reading “El Dinero es mi Amigo,” I picked up the phone and call Phil and mentioned that I would love to record his book in Spanish so that all the Spanish speaking people would enjoy his audio book. He agreed with me and said: “I think it sounds great. Lets do it.” I remembered hanging up the phone and saying to my husband: “That is it? He liked the idea! He did not think about it twice. I can’t believe I will be recording Phil Laut’s awesome book.” After a few days my husband took me to one of Phil’s New York City conferences. I was very excited to finally meet him and so I took my book with me and he signed it. Clint and Phil were happy to see each other again. He mentioned that this was a synchronicity event and that recording the book in Spanish would be of great value. I was delighted!!!

    Although I have completed the recording, Phil did not have the opportunity to finish his Spanish introductory that he was passionate about adding to the beginning of the audio book.

    I thank you Phil for giving me the opportunity to pass your words and your teachings to all the Spanish speaking community out there who want money to be their Amigo. You taught me that less words, say more.

    En tu recuerdo y con sincera gratitud!

  • I found a copy of Money is my Friend in late January of this year that I had from 1979. I read the book again and became very interested. About a week later in February 2010 on a Saturday morning I was in a Whole foods market reading his book. I had the telephone number to call to sign up to have a consultation and
    get started on the questionaire. I called the number and to my surprise Phil Laut
    answered, I was very suprised, we had a nice conservation and he sent the questionaire to me that day. I am very sorry to hear he had passed away.
    I hope his teachings continue.

  • Dear Andy,

    Dear Andy I am sad for you. I guess I want to think we are all ageless, and that because of our belief, we can overcome death, but I know it isn’t true. I am sorry for the loss of your close friend. I appreciate you letting everyone know.

    You take care of yourself,

    Blessings,

    Kathy

  • Hello Andy,

    I’m saddened to hear of your and Phil’s family’s loss. We will be upholding all of you in prayer at this difficult time, and in the days to come.

    Thank you for taking the time to let me know.

    Sincerely,
    Joe Cotter

  • Andy, I am sorry to hear about the loss of your friend and colleague. Cheryl

  • I was very sad to hear of Phil Laut’s passing. His wisdom and originality expressed in his book “Money is My Friend” was a great source of inspiration for me, and is worth another read. That’s part of his legacy. I send blessings to all who loved him and to all who benefited from his work.

  • Phil was a nice guy with a good heart and a sense of humor. He will be missed in this world. My condolences to you and to Phil’s family.

  • It’s sad to hear that Phil is gone. I bought his book ‘Money is my friend’ many years ago. And as I grow as a person as well in business I kept on reading his book over and over. Each year his words became more and more a lifestyle philosophy. Phil is one of the great authors that changed my life forever. His heritage will not be lost as I will teach my kids his indications to success.

    May god be with you Phil!

    Yours sincere,

  • I was introduced to Phil from my first manager Arlene Neilson. I was just out of high school and didn’t have much knowledge with respect to money. My boss saw my personal struggle and suggested the book. Money is my Friend. Within a few years I transformed my thoughts and actions and was a leading sales person. Each time I read it I gained such great insight of myself and my future. For this past New Years (2010 and over 20years after my first introduction to his art) I took off to Puerto Rico by myself with Phil’s: Wealth Without a Job. I spent the time journaling, reading, discovering and sitting with all the valuable guidance it has to offer. Phil was instrumental in my personal, financial and relationship growth. I am so pleased to have taken the steps in understanding what it is he contributed to this world. He is a true giver. He will be missed but his stories will be read for ever.

  • I am very saddened to hear that Phil is no longer with us. He put out into the world truly helpful ideas and insights that I have never heard from anyone else. I am glad that he found success doing exactly the work that he loved to do. Helping other people, as he did, is a great purpose to pursue, and he leaves an example we can all do well to emulate.

    Very odd — I had an urge out of the blue in the last few days to pick up my copy of Wealth Without A Job and start re-reading it — as if Phil was speaking to me one last time?

  • After learning the psychology of wealth, in 1987, from Fred Lehrman, I studied with the author of “Money is my Friend” in 1988. My wife and I would read a chapter every day and study it together. In time, we went from renting a small apartment in Manhattan that looked out on another building, to owning a spacious 3-bedroom home in magical Woodstock, NY overlooking the mountains, and eventually also a 2-bedroom oceanfront condo overlooking the Atlantic.
    Within a year or so of reading Phil’s classic book, I became his friend and assisted him in a couple of his seminars in New York City.

    In 2001, I would coach with him as well. At the time, I owned my own very successful marketing/PR firm for 18 years and was doing coaching, teaching and writing very part-time. In 20 sessions with Phil, I transformed my work entirely, devoting full-time to coaching. I learned many valuable lessons both psychologically and professionally from him to enrich my burgeoning business. I’m now in my 9th year at it, and have been a keynote speaker, in the process. Phil was proud.

    A few years ago, I found myself in Charlotte, and we lunched together, talking about old times and new ones. We had many laughs; we truly loved each other’s senses of humor. When I said goodbye at lunch that day, I had no idea that it would be the last time I saw him.

    Ever since the time he had told me that, following his tour of duty with the Coast Guard, his family called him Skipper, I never called him Phil again. To me, he was always Skipper.

    Skipper…what a perfect name for Phil Laut. After all, he was like a baseball manager, a true skipper, bringing out the very best in the rookies and veterans who came to him.

    Skipper…may your voyage into the Light be a peaceful one.

    Love always,

    Cary Bayer

  • This is sad news… I want to thank Phil for his teachings that have made a huge impact on my development towards obtaining the life I really want and love. Phil was the success coach that caught my attention back in 2004 when I acquired his book Money is My Friend then meeting him at a seminar in New York City in 2006. At first I found his ideas unusual yet very interesting and that is what attracted me to Phil. He was a no bull kind of guy who just really wanted to make people aware that the power was within them and that you can overcome any mental block with simple yet affective tools.

    God Bless Phil and all of the people he’s helped. Phil you’re a great person. And thank you for introducing me to Andy who is a true inspiration as you.

    With deepest gratitude,

    Clint
