Establishing your net worth is an integral component of personal financial management. The number reveals how much of your current assets – cash, investments accounts money in investment accounts property stocks etc- you own as opposed to what others owe you (debts).
Net worth gives an indication of your overall financial health. Knowing it can also assist in making better decisions regarding debt repayment or savings goals in the future. A negative or low net worth could indicate too much debt owing and an urgent need to reduce spending; but that’s okay too; starting to make changes early can have long-term benefits and requires commitment and discipline – the results will more than make up for their shortcomings!
