I think not! LOL
Networth. Sharon from Musings of a Midlife Mom said:
I like to do a Net Worth sheet and instead of staring at the debt, I enjoy seeing my net worth go up..even if it is only a couple hundred dollars. You’ll be debt free before you know it, and it will feel wonderful!
Thank you, Sharon. Those are some great words!
Well, I have never checked out my Networth. Oh…well, minor calculations here and there. This time I decided to give Sharon’s cue a try at NetworthIQ. Plug in the numbers and wha-la! I was amazed at its ease of use. And I made it simple on myself by having my numbers already handy (from my spreadsheet).
I just started so there is no curve
But, I didn’t gasp as much I thought I would. What saved me from the loud gasp? My retirement fund. I started it at my entrance to my 30’s and have steadily built it up. What is killing it? My Student Loans. Bleck!
Do I like NW or Spreadsheet Tally Better? The Networth gives the larger overall view. Where as the spreadsheet give me the annual comparison view. I would have to say that I plan on using both.
However, I do like the Networth view because it kind of hypes me more to get it out of the negative.
Thanks for the idea to try a Networth graph. Now I am brewing ideas on how to take it out of the negative!
