Truman Advisors Analyze the Average Net Worth of Americans in Each Age Bracket

After being a part of the workforce for a few years, you may finally have enough money to pay off your old student loans and perhaps even purchase your own home with a new car to boot. At that point, you may also grow curious about your current standing in society. To be more specific, you may be wondering about how you compare to the average American in terms of wealth.

Should You Include Your Pension in Your Net Worth?

In late March my wife reached 20 years of military service qualifying for half of her basic pay. She hasn’t retired yet and as she continues to work the pension has the potential to rise exponentially. Pensions are very rare nowadays. It seems like almost all companies have stopped offering them. Often companies have difficulties fulfilling those pension obligations. Pensions are still a part of many careers such as teaching, law enforcement, and firefighting. Typically those pensions are ...

What it means to be rich: The difference between income and wealth

I’m generally a pretty laid-back guy but, like anyone, I do have pet peeves. Because I write about money, I have lots of trivial personal-finance pet peeves. (It’s “saving rate“, not “savings rate”. Dave Ramsey did not invent the debt snowball, and his version is but one kind of debt snowball. It’s not the only debt snowball. See? I told you these pet peeves were trivial!) It’s silly that I’m bugged by this stuff, but I am. I’m sure you have pet peeves too, especially when it comes to your work....

April 2018 Net Worth Update (+$22,946)

Highlights for AprilApril was a busy month, with positive momentum as much of the month was focused on some long term financing for our new rental.It took us longer than I expected, but for most of April we worked on a cash out refinance of our first rental property to put long term financing in place for our latest rental purchase (property #5). We locked in on a 5.375% 30 yr fixed rate (which provided enough credit to cover our closing costs). This rate is slightly lower than the 5.5% on ou...

You are the boss of you: Why you should run your life like a business

Note: During the month of March, I’m migrating old Money Boss material to Get Rich Slowly — including the articles that describe the “Money Boss method”. This is the second of those articles. Part one answered the question, “What is financial independence?” For the past several years — since I published the Get Rich Slowly course in 2014 — I’ve been trying to teach people to think like a CFO. Here’s my fundamental premise: You should manage your personal finances the way a business owner would m...

February 2018 Net Worth Update

With the first month done in 2018 it is time to update my net worth spreadsheet.  Writing this introduction prior to updating the spreadsheet, my gut is telling me that it is not going to be a good month for a few reasons.  The first is because The Wife’s new business is now underway with payments going out, but few payments coming in (yet).  The second reason is that The Wife and I stepped up our travel game – going up to ski in Vermont with really good friends, booking Mexico for our family an...

How the things we own vary at different levels of net worth

Do people at different levels of wealth spend their money on different things? Of course they do. Some of these differences are by necessity, of course. If you have a million dollars in net worth, for example, then even average spending on your weekly meals will make up a much smaller portion of your net worth than the same spending would for somebody who has a net worth of $10,000. (To put it another way: If you have two families that both spend $100 per week on food, but one family has a net w...

Highlights for OctoberOctober still had healthy gains after a significant bump in September.We spent the first part of October on a Disney family vacation. I had a lot of heartburn about the expense of this trip for several months, but I came back convinced it was the right decision for our family.

January 2018 Net Worth Update

I can’t believe it is 2018 already! I really feel like 2017 flew.  If you track your net worth (and I absolutely think every adult should track his or her net worth) then the year end is particularly exciting despite it not really mattering.  The end of year, resolutions and ‘starting over’ has always seemed odd to me – why does someone need an arbitrary date to being good habits?  Notwithstanding, I am guilty of creating goals for 2018 and even being particularly excited about updating my year ...

How to calculate your net worth (and what to do with it)

In the spirit of getting back to basics this month at Get Rich Slowly, I’m planning to publish a series of articles about the most important numbers in personal finance. Let’s start by looking at how to calculate your net worth. To measure the value of a business, companies talk about equity or “book value”. Jargon, right? In personal finance, equity is known as net worth. It’s exactly the same thing but on a personal level. Your net worth is an important number because it reveals how much the b...
