What does Net Worth mean and why do I need to know my Net Worth?


For now we are looking at your personal Net Worth, meaning basically what you’re worth in money. It is the number that you have to spend if necessary. But be aware that some of that cash is hold up in property or other investments, so it doesn’t mean that you can wake up one day and decide to spend it all.


Your Net Worth would ideally increase on a yearly basis and should never decrease. In the worst case, your liabilities (debt) will surpass your assets and you will need to file for personal bankruptcy. Below we will provide a breakdown on the many ways you can increase your Net Worth.


In order to stay financially healthy it is important to stay on top of your Net Worth, revisit and calculate it at least once every 6 months and try to increase this number as much as possible. Maybe one day you might even become a HNWI (High Net Worth Individual) this means you alone or together with your spouse will have a Net Worth of $1 million or higher.


How do I calculate my Net Worth?

It is a simple calculation of your assets minus your liabilities. Assets are the things that you own (debt-free) and your cash. Your liabilities are all your debts, including something like a mortgage or car loan.


For example

Tina is 35 and lives in Amsterdam and has a house with a market value of $450.000. She has a car worth $5.000, savings $10.000 and other assets worth $5.000. Her liabilities are the mortgage on the house of $400.000, a student loan of $2.500 and no credit card debts. Her Net Worth is: $67.500

What should my Net Worth be?

According to CNN Money, the average Net Worth per age is as follows: $9000 age 25-34, $52000 age 35-44 and $100.000 age 45-54. Since Tina’s Net Worth is $67.500 she is doing well for herself.

We are Olivia & Morgan

So both in our 30's, with exciting careers including fast track to CEO positions, we met at RSM Business School during our MBA in The Netherlands. 

Always afraid to drop the ball, we quickly figured out life after 30 is not about having everything together, but more about developing yourself, knowing who you and what your goals are and ESPECIALLY  knowing how to get there.

Because we can all dream, but turning that into action and reality is a huge challenge.

So we created this platform to develop and achieve your goals step-by-step.

We truly believe that if you can dream it, you can make it happen. Anything you want, you can achieve.  

This is the philosophy of Eve & Elle and the core concept behind every article we write and product that we develop.

Everything we do is about helping you make it happen.
