It’s the middle of the month, so it’s a time to calculate my net worth. For the last 5 months or so, I’ve been pretty much break even – spending almost exactly what I’ve earned. This is not a long-term recipe for success, but it’s a lot better than many people do when starting a business. Of course, I’m aided greatly in that this website makes some money, I do some contract work on the side, and my wife earns a very good income (my net worth doesn’t take her money into account).
Due to a small surge in stock prices, my net worth grew around $2,000 to $220,490. I could have done a couple of thousand dollars better, but one organization has been slow to pay some money they owe me. On the other hand, I’ve been slow to bill another organization for work done. There is no excuse for this other than laziness and possible stupidity. I am leaving interest on the table.
