Do you know your net worth? It's not that hard to calculate.
One of our Goddesses asked if she can include her Cryptocurrency in her net worth. Another asked if her car can be included.
The answer is Yes! You can include those things in your net worth calculation, along with a lot of things you probably hadn't thought about.
Your net worth is the value of your assets (what you own) minus your liabilities (what you owe).
An asset is anything you have that has significant value. Here are the assets you can include in your net worth calculation:
Liabilities/Debts will include:
You do not need to add utility bills, phone bills, etc.
To calculate, add up the value of all your assets and then subtract the total amount of your liabilities. The balance is your net worth -- it's a snap shot of how much you're worth at this moment. Regardless of your number (even if it's negative), our goal is to help you increase that net worth until you're financially free.
*One criterion to be qualified as an accredited investor, is that you have a net worth of $1 million or more, not including your primary residence. So for your net worth calculation for accreditation purposes, you should exclude the value of your home from the assets column as well as the value of your mortgage or HELOC from the liabilities column.
In order to find out if you are an Accredited investor, you need to either look at your GROSS INCOME (above $200k, or $300k as a couple) or your NET WORTH - your total ASSETS minus your LIABILITIES of $1M or more. For real estate investing purposes, you exclude the value of your primary residence, and therefore any mortgage, or equity line of credit on your primary residence).
