Do you truly know what your current net worth is?  Or do you know how to calculate your net worth? -————————————————— First, let’s define what net worth is. It is the actual measurement of one’s personal wealth (non-business definition). ———————————————- Now to accurately calculate your net worth, follow these five steps:

1. Gather ALL of your personal property that you own (100% paid for). 2. Estimate the actual value of everything you own and total that up. This amount will be known as your total asset value. 
3. Now gather ALL of your liabilities (debts, items you owe money on). 4. Add the total amount of your liabilities. This amount will be known as your total liability. 
5. Finally take the Total Liability and subtract it from your Total Asset Value. 
The end result is your Net Worth.  Now you know how much actual wealth you either have or don’t have.

Step 5: Begin investing in your child’s future by establishing a 529 Savings Plan also known as a Educational Savings Account. 
A 529 plan is a tax-advantaged savings designed to encourage saving for the future educational costs of attending college. 529 Plan is legally known as “Qualified Tuition Plans” and are sponsored by states, state agencies, or educational institutions and are authorized by Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Step 3:  To be completed after step 2 is 100% paid off and you’re debt free besides the mortgage; RESUME BUILDING YOUR EMERGENCY FUND.

That’s right. Once you have completely paid off all of the bills in step 2, it is now time to build your full emergency fund. Begin by taking your normal monthly expenses from a 31-day month and then multiply that amount by 10. You should have at least 10 months of expenses saved for your emergency fund. 
Remember that an emergency fund is for EMERGENCIES ONLY. It is not for dining, vacations, or any other new items to purchase. If you are serious with this, you will benefit knowing you took to the steps necessary to add peace of mind Insurance.
