Hey all, new freelancer here. Have found it pretty challenging to keep good track of my net worth and wondering how others feel about it/how they keep track of it. So with that:

 

How important is it to you to know what your net worth is at any point in time?

 

How do you currently keep track of this number?

It isn't

I don't.

 

How does this relate to freelancing in general or Upwork in particular?

 Maggie: I think you may be using the term "net worth" in an non-traditional way.

 

"Net worth" is not an Upwork concept.

 

Can you tell us what you mean when you use this term?

 Yup, net worth as in how much money do i truly have - i.e. cash i have in the bank, plus money i am owed for invoiced/completed work, minus what i will have to pay in taxes.

Maggie:

I was wrong... You are using the phrase "net worth" in the way we all use it.

 

So all I can say is that this is not something that Upwork tracks.

 

I think you may be thinking of Upwork as something that is more "all-encompassing" than it really is.

 

For that type of need, you could look into accounting software such as QuickBooks.
