Congrats ! We took different routes to get there but I know the feeling just the same !
Financially speaking, seeing that 7 figure number for the first time was probably the best feeling of my life. It represented hope and the possibility of eventual personal freedom.
Since then it is has been a little less exciting to see the figures on the screen tick upward but I have high hopes for when we hit the 2MM mark as well.

I put this original post out in August of this last year after having my net worth first hit $1 million. At the time, that included the value of my condo. I am happy and surprised that today I hit the next milestone already which is $1 million without the condo. This market rally is a welcome surprise!

Thinking about it, I reached a milestone a few weeks ago : I reached my 40 quarters for SS purposes. Since I am not sure how much my NW is, I have no NW-related milestones, if this makes sense.

Nice. When I was 33, I barely had $1500 in my savings account with a debt of 11k in credit card debt hell. Today, its a different story. I'm lucky to have a pension and I've been funding my 401k/Roth.

Do you have at least a rough idea of your net worth? If not, I encourage you to sit down with pencil and paper and crunch the numbers. It shouldn't take too long, if you keep reasonable records.

I don't think it's necessary (or even desirable) to always know one's precise NW; but it's good to track this on a regular basis - e.g., annually, or every six months - to ensure that you are making progress.

You can delegate the work to an accountant, bookkeeper, or financial planner ... but no one cares more than you, and it's empowering to take control yourself.
