Growing your income year after year is definitely something to be proud of. The increased pay can allow you to enjoy more and experience more.

But you know what's a more important barometer for your financial health?

Net worth.

Through the many financial conversations I’ve had and even in my personal experience, a lot of people do not know what net worth is and why it’s important.

Today, we’re going to change all that.

I’ve invited a man who’s been tracking his net worth every month for the last 10 years! Yes, that’s more than 120 net worth charts. That’s dedication.

This mystery man goes by J. Money from the very popular Budgets Are Sexy blog.

What are we covering?

J. Money and I review:

  • How and why he started tracking his net worth in the first place
  • What methods he used to grow it from $50,000 to $850,000 in 10 years
  • Why his priorities have changed in the last few years

J’s money knowledge has been featured in countless publications including CBS News, US News and World Report and Forbes. He has received over a dozen awards for his writing, advice and community building.

This net worth boosting conversation is real, honest and genuine. Enjoy!
