Size Up Your Financial Well-Being
There are four numbers that give an overview of your financial security. Keep in mind, these numbers will change, so check in with them periodically.
- Your net worth (what you own and what you owe)
- Your credit score
- Your short-term emergency savings
- Your investments and long-term savings
Of course, you probably won’t tackle all four areas at once, but you may find that achieving a level of success in one will lead to attainment of another.
