Aspiring Millionaire


I used to wonder about ladies parading around in red-soles, how much does she make?

I’ve learned it’s better for me and my jealousy for that to be none of my business.

With the dawn of credit—clothes, shoes, and accessories became no indication of net worth.

I spend BIG on non-smudge eyeliner. And skimp on Hanes boy’s t-shirts.

New goal: look as fabulous as a millionaire while I save to become one.

Net Worth

All assets ($ I have) minus all liabilities ($ I owe).

Net Worth Calculation


My man tells me I’m priceless. Painfully cute, I know.

But, I want to know a more concrete net worth #. So I used this net worth calculator.


#’s I needed to crack code:


$$ in stocksbondscashretirement accounts, and variable annuities

(click on the bold-faced vocab words:))

Plus, value of home, second home, art, jewelry and furnishings. Seems this calc was created for the the whole 100% of us.


$$ owed on mortgages, home-equity loanstudent loancredit cards and other.

At least, the piechart was nice enough to remind me, I’m not alone.

Happy calculating!
