Not just for millionaires anymore, net worth measures the difference between what you own and what you
owe. Knowing your net worth is part financial fitness checkup (how am I doing?) and part planning tool.
As long as your assets are more than your debts, you have a positive net worth. Your goal, from one
year to the next, is to make that positive difference grow.
Among other things, knowing your net worth helps you see if debts are in line with assets, if
investments are growing, and even if you need more disability or life insurance to shield your assets.
