Net Worth

Net Worth Tracker

Net worth is my main progress marker for reaching financial independence.  Many people include their house, cars, savings account, etc in their net worth calculation but since I’m concerned only with what I’ll be able to draw on in retirement, I’m only going to track my investment accounts.

My current goal is $1,000,000 which would provide $40k per year in pretax income based on the 4% rule.

Account Amount as of Feb 2017
401(k) $105,459
Vanguard Roth IRA $11,126
Tastyworks Roth IRA $12,678
Wife’s Roth IRA $3,678
Total $132,941

Index funds are boring (but necessary!)  Check out some of the other ways I’m accelerating my path to financial independence by starting side businesses.
