Many people are interested in net worth. In fact, some people are even googling what my net worth is!

If you want to lose weight, it is 70% or 80% dependent on diet, and only about 20% exercise. Likewise, if you want to get wealthy, it is 80% your spending habits that count, and 20% dependent on your income.
