Mr. Goxx, The Cutest Money Manager

Talking Points:

  • Mr. Goxx is notable for two reasons. First, he's up about 20% since he started his career in finance, beating most professionals and the S&P 500. Second, he's a cute little hamster.
  • How does a hamster trade? In a little office attached to his cage, of course. The office is equipped with a wheel and two tubes, one for buying and one for selling. He selects trades by running on the wheel and either buys or sells by walking through the tubes.
  • You can see him at work via his live streams on Twitter and Twitch. Maybe we could all learn a thing or two from him.
Check out his Twitter >>

Angela Merkel Retires

Talking Points:

  • Last week Germany held elections to replace their beloved Chancellor, Angel Merkel. The elections were so close that it's hard to know who the next chancellor will be, but the leading parties are the Center-Left, followed closely by the Center-Right.
  • Angela will be stepping down with an approval rating of more than 80% and is widely credited with turning Germany into the modern powerhouse it is today.
  • Angela's legacy is marked by two key moments: Her refusal to let the Euro die with a subsequent bailout of Greece and her acceptance of refugees following wars in the middle east.

Lava Flows Finally Reach The Sea

Talking Points:

  • Nine days after a volcano in La Palma, Spain, erupted, the lava has finally made it to the sea. Marking an end to its destruction.
  • Lava has been flowing down the Cumbre Vieja Volcano's western flank toward the sea since Sept. 19, destroying almost 600 houses and banana plantations in La Palma.
  • It's easy to think that we're in charge of the planet, but then you watch videos of lava flowing through structures like there's nothing there and are reminded of who's in charge.

Elon Musk And Gimes Seperate

Talking Points:

  • It seems to be the year of high-profile billionaire separations. First Bill, then John Paulson, and now Elon.
  • However, Elon and Grimes had the most bizarre relationship by a mile. I guess what do you expect. They named their kid X Æ A-12. Don't ask me how to pronounce that... but the Æ is the elven spelling of A.I.
  • Some of the highlights from the relationship include Elon sliding into Grimes' DMs, allegedly trapping Azaila Banks in their house, and numerous hilarious Twitter exchanges.

Oliver Charles update

If you're still reading and didn't immediately enter the giveaway, thanks! You're the reason I get up in the morning.

And let me tell you I've been getting up real early the past few weeks to prepare for our Sustainable Fashion Pop-Up.

We're super lucky to be hosting 9 other amazing brands in the Presidio Heights neighborhood of San Francisco.

 If you're in San Fran (as the locals say) please stop by and say hi. You can RSVP here. Hint, that'll also enter you into our giveaway.

Not only will there be some awesome brands to check out, but there will also be lots of free booze.

Until next time, keep building 💪.

Best, Tobias
