The first month of the year started off with a nice net worth increase. I now have five years’ worth of financial history recorded in Quicken. At the end of January 2002, my net worth was $9,394… below zero. I had no investments, nothing in my bank account, student loans and a small bit of credit card debt. The only income I was getting at the time was unemployment from a non-profit job I left. It was February 2002 when I found myself a stable job and started turning myself around.
Here are my latest numbers.
I made some changes to account for my car’s depreciation. There isn’t anything else out of the ordinary this month. I’m pleased with my progress so far, and I’m looking forward to the rest of the year. My income and expense statement may prove to be a little more interesting.
