Calculate your net worth by subtracting your debts (liabilities) from your assets. 

First, list your assets, such as real estate, vehicles, bank accounts, retirement accounts, investment accounts, and other valuables. Next list your liabilities, like your mortgage, vehicle loans, credit cards, personal loans, taxes owed, HELOCs, 401(k) loans, medical debt, and cell phone loans.
