Time again to learn about you, the readers Earlier this year I put up a poll on this blog to find out how much wealth we all had. Thanks to everyone who voted (^_^) Here are the results below.
I’m surprised no one who voted has a negative net worth. So even if people have student loans and other debts they somehow have enough assets to still retain positive wealth. The median net worth of fellow readers appear to be around the $350,000 mark. That is quite impressive since the median net worth of Canadian households is only about $230,000. Congrats fellas 😀 The typical reader of this site is 50% richer than the general population. Is it just a coincidence or because of all the useful financial and investment strategies I write about 😉 Joking aside, I think it’s because people who are serious about taking control of their finances are more likely to be wealthy and are also more likely to stumble across my blog 😎
If we further extrapolate the data we find that about 16% of you readers are millionaires ❗ Well, I’ll be! Apparently I still have much to learn and experience in financial matters since my net worth today is only $187,000, which means most of you guys are richer than me 😕 However I’m planning to run this poll again next year when my net worth is estimated to be $250,000, if I get the 15% return on investment I’m expecting. By then I hope all of you will have also expanded your own household finances and maybe the median reader net worth will be higher 🙂 Good luck everyone.
Random Useless Fact: This is what an upside down lily pad looks like. If you feel a sense of uneasiness when looking at the image below, or find it somehow disturbing or hard to look at, then you may be trypophobic. Warning: if you think you have trypophobia, don’t try to Google “trypophobia” You might just freak yourself out 😛 And definitely DO NOT watch this YouTube video.
