Career + Finance + Tech

Your net worth is the total amount that your assets are worth after you subtract your liabilities. Assets include the money you have in your bank and investment accounts, the market value of your car, the value of your house and more. Liabilities include student loan debt, car loans, mortgages and credit card debt. If your total amount of assets exceeds your total amount of liabilities, you have a positive net worth. If the opposite is true, your net worth is negative. [Swirled]
