2016 net worth report
(Because it’s too funny not to post)
This is an estimate for my end of 2016 net worth.
Hah. Pretty brutal, right?
One of the downfalls of being a minimalist is that I don’t own anything that I don’t need. And right now, nothing that I own has any monetary value. I don’t know how much my assets are going to change, at least in the short term. I have pretty much everything that I need. The road to wealth is not a short journey, that much I’ve figured out. And the internal debate of “Do I even care about monetary wealth?” is an ongoing one.
The vast majority of my debt belongs to my student loans. I didn’t pay them for several years so they defaulted and I had to go through rehab programs to get back on track. On one hand, I still don’t really care. But on the other hand, I borrowed the money so I should pay it.
The rest of it is credit card debt. I racked up about $2,500 worth of cc debt when I started my small business over a year ago. The business failed but the debt is still there. Paying that off is my current focus.
Why do I even bother to post this abysmal horseshit?
Because I’m about to start multiple projects, all of which involve the combination of saving money and living simply, which is what I’m already doing and mixing in creating extra income for myself and increasing my assets. The purpose of this post is to establish a starting point.
And if you think this net worth is bad, you should have seen it a few years ago. Wowza…
