Raise Your Price Tag: Consider These Investments To Increase Your Net Worth
Net worth is a financial measure of your own personal worth in assets and investments. The healthier your investment history and the more money you earn from investing it wisely, the higher you own personal “price tag.”
As African-Americans, our net worth is not even a tenth of our overall consumer power. According to a report done by Democracy Now!, African-American women have, on average, about $100 net worth in 2013 compared to $41,000 for white women. As a race whose consumer power is in the billions, why are we shortchanging our own net worth?
Here are a few investments to look into to build your portfolio and your net worth. Don’t just jump in! After consulting and finding the right financial advisor, make sure to research your investment options. Learn as much as you can and begin writing the price tag for what you are worth.
