Net Worth

[Personal Finance| Accounting| Income Statement| Balance Sheet] Net Worth is a way to measure progress, and to help you foresee trouble before you get buried too deep. Net worth is a concept applicable to individuals and businesses as a key measure of how much an entity is worth. A consistent increase in net worth indicates good financial health; conversely, net worth may be depleted by annual operating losses or a substantial decrease in asset values relative to liabilities.
