Hey hey. Today is Thursday, if you’re keeping track. And, of course, this is Apex Money, your source for fresh money links. Let’s see what we have for you today…
A false sense of purchasing power. [Becoming Minimalist] — “It is helpful to recognize that the temptation to take out credit based on income (rather than wealth) can be detrimental to our long-term financial health. It allows us to spend money like the wealthy, even though we are not.”
The secret, essential geography of the office. [Wired] — “I keep reading that the office era is over — that our pandemic has proven that ‘office culture’ is an oxymoron. When the virus hit we left our desks and threw away our commutes, and now no one can tap our shoulders (or, much worse, massage them). And aren’t we better for it?…But I don’t buy this.”
Building a rich life. [ESI Money] — “You don’t want to be rich. You want to be happy. You’re not after wealth for the sake of wealth. You’re after what that money represents: freedom, fulfillment, and a Rich Life. Money itself is a means to an end.”
Lessons from watching food-truck videos. [Financial Panther] — “I find food truck owners to be an interesting group of people. They’re extremely passionate about what they do. They work harder than almost anyone I’ve ever seen. And, the thing I really relate to, these food truck owners value control and autonomy over their lives more than anything.”
And to finish today, here’s a fun video from Guinness World Records. It’s the most tricks performed by a cat in one minute.
The only trick my cats will do is “beg for fish treats”. (Well, that’s not really true. They’ll also “cry to go outside”.)
Any my best trick? My best trick is that I’ll be back tomorrow to share more money news with you all! See you then.
