In all honesty, I’ve been asked “how much do you make?” often, especially when I’m trying to impress people in a small town in the middle of nowhere, and the response is usually something that’s a lot less than I make. So, I like the fact that I know the answer.
My net worth is $12,000. I have no bank accounts and no real job. I only make this because I can.
I just want to be clear that not all the people asking this question are making large amounts of money. Ive been asked how much I make when I’m not actually working, and the response is usually something that’s a lot less than I make.
I’m not even certain how many of the people in this question are making a living, but if it is a lot less than you make, that would be a big deal. It would be great if you could just start making money, but you can’t.
If you’re looking for a job, or even a job that pays well, you can’t make money without a job. So really, why should you quit your job to be able to work? We’re guessing that you’re not asking this question because you’re not actually living paycheck to paycheck. If you’re actually making a living, then you should do whatever you can to give your income to a cause you believe in, like you’ve started this question.
If youre making money your is a good reason not to quit your job, but that’s not the point. The point is that if you dont make money, you cant go out and make money. So if you’re making money, you should be able to work.
I really do not know that I am making a very good living at what I do. I think I make a fair bit more than I would if I were working a 10 hour day and doing something I love, and I live paycheck to paycheck. My paychecks are a little tighter, but that is because I am working 40 hour weeks and doing something I enjoy.
While you can make a lot of money working in the tech industry, you still need to make enough to cover your expenses. Money is fungible. Sometimes you need to make more money for a smaller lifestyle, and sometimes you need to make more money to pay for a larger lifestyle, and sometimes you can make more money by doing something that you love more than working. The trick is figuring out where you want to be in life and what you want to do.
Your net worth is basically your money, minus the things that are not money. Your net worth is everything that has a value to you. It is everything you own, minus the money you owe. The way you can figure out your net worth is to subtract your current assets from your current liabilities. Your net worth is the difference between what you have and what you need to be happy.
So how much money do you have and where do you want to be in life? To figure that out, you need to know what you want to be doing in life. Think about all the things you want to do (make a lot of money, be an investment banker, have fun travelling the world, etc.) and then figure out how much you want money to be. Then subtract the amount you need to be happy from the amount you have. The result is your net worth.
