2006 ER Forum Current Net Worth Survey

8)

Your second chance if you left something out the last time
OR
If your Net Worth has changed (Hopefully for the better)
OR
If you didn't look closely enough and picked the wrong one last time
OR
You were lying the last time and you want to be honest with us and yourself this time
OR
You were honest the last time and well you feel like lying this time because you is a natural born liar that's just a joke hehehe!
OR
You're new and want to join in the fun and games
OR
You're old and want to join in the fun and games
OR
You got confused last time by the present value of this and that and now you know what you're truly worth give or take 25k - 100k - but you know deep down that true worth and happiness can not be measured by $$$ - but what the heck you want to figure it out anyway.

This is not meant to supplant replant or displant Rich's excellent thread "Whatcha worth?" - his is much easier to read. Mine tends to require too much squinting and is for those who require maybe too much detail (me).

Re: New 2006 ER Forum Current Net Worth Survey

Our net worth is just $9K short of $1 million.

Our goal for the end of 2006 was for the net worth to hit $975K since the baby is due in 2 weeks and I have a feeling is going to be quite expensive I'm happy that we're ahead of the game at this stage

Not a problem.

The girl, the guy, the pole or the mp3 player?

It may be helpful it was noted whether one was already in ER or still working.

If still working net worth has a greater chance of growing.

Here's something GTM, don't know if it fits what you're looking for - it can get more than just a wee bit complex

Re: New Improved 2006 ER Forum Current Net Worth Survey

Is this net worth in US, Canadian or Hong Kong dollars?

Oh, that's a good point Soon....
Since the forum for the time being is overwhelmingly US based, I would suggest if you are holding something other than US dollars....you should figure out what the US $ value is...or not

Re: New Improved 2006 ER Forum Current Net Worth Survey

All things considered, I think a Canadian @$50 000 and an American @$50 000 would be comparable.

A Canadian @ $30 000 is probably better off than an American, but Americans @$100 000 and up are definitely better off.

Re: New Improved 2006 ER Forum Current Net Worth Survey

I'm having this conversation with my 14 year old -- he has realized that the perfect way to get at Dad's buttons is to buy new consumer electronic gadgets with shocking frequency and little real research. ERs with teenagers on the way, beware this could be your own private hell brewing!

Problem is the kid has enough money earned from various sources to now be able to splash out for a new palm or pocket PC once a year, and accessories along the way. He would rather get a job this summer than go on vacations, camps or anything else. Why? More $ for more gadgets.

He is no happier, in fact unhappy each time he buys a new one and six months later finds another kid has one even cooler, or a new feature has come out or whatever. I worry he's going to be stuck on a hedonistic treadmill too, but the more I jabber at him about it, the more determined he is that he'll do it just to prove he's not like me! Oh well!

Re: 2006 ER Forum Current Net Worth Survey

Bob - This sounds so familiar!
We think the kids are absorbing our messages - our words and actions - and then when they're older they start to own some of those messages.
3 weeks ago our 24 year old, who has been a tech gadget junkie, and had been lusting after a new notebook, said that he wasn't that hot on it anymore, that the computer he had already was doing the job, he would rather save the money and that he felt like he was becoming more and more like me.
