Life, Family, Work

At only 22, Simone is now one of the gymnasts in the world with the most wins in various gymnastics categories. With her 2016 Olympic run in Rio de Janeiro, she became the first woman gymnast to win three golds in three categories.

She was then dubbed as the world’s most talented gymnast. Aside from this, she is also considered as the gymnast with the most World Champions win in the entire history of women’s gymnastics, the first female gymnast to have won six World All-Around titles, and member of three gold-medal American Gymnastics teams in three World Artistic Gymnastics Championships (2014, 2015 and 2018).

She did not have her parents around growing up as her mother and father were both struggling with addiction. When she and her three siblings were put in foster care, her maternal grandparents came to Ohio and took them under his care in Texas. Her grandfather enlisted her in training programs because he has seen her talent and passion for gymnastics.

In 2015, she was about to attend UCLA but deferred because she said that she will enlist in the pro-level that year and wanted to focus on gymnastics. She ended up attending University of the People, an online university, so she could give more time to her craft. And indeed, her career splurged up as she became the product ambassador of various brands such as Nike, Octagon, GK Elite Sportswear and Core Power, among others.

Simone is not yet married. She is currently dating a director and head coach at Worlds Champion Center, Stacey Ervin Jr. since August 2017. They have been together since.

What does Net Worth Mean?

What is a Net Worth?

It is a quantitative concept which measures the value of an entity. It is applicable ranging from an individual to companies, organizations, sectors and a country as a whole. To put it simply, it is the difference between assets and liabilities. A positive net worth means assets are greater than liabilities, whereas negative net worth mean liabilities are greater than assets.


Net Worth = Assets – Liabilities

A little more into Net Worth Concept:

Net worth conveys the financial health of any entity. Asset is anything that is owned and has a monetary value to it while liabilities is a commitment that deplete resources. Assets can be liquid or which can turn into liquid ( example: bank check ). They are non-liquid when they take time to turn into cash (like for example Home). Whereas liability is an obligation that has to be repaid ( example: home loan, car loan etc.,)

Any financial institution or 3rd party look at your assets and liabilities to understand the financial position. Positive net worth or increasing asset base indicates good financial health while negative net worth or increasing liabilities means a bad financial health condition.

It is always a good habit for any entity to maintain a reduce liabilities and increase or maintain a balanced asset base.

What does a Net Worth Mean to a person?

In simple terms, it means the value that is left after subtracting liabilities from assets. Few Examples of liabilities include car loans, student loans, home loans, credit card bills, and other mortgages etc., whereas an individual’s assets are amount in the savings account, home, vehicle, bonds, stocks and other material that has value.

In other words, whatever is left after paying off all the personal debt from asset base is net worth. It is important to understand that value of net worth varies as per the market value of assets and current debt costs.

For example:

Consider a case of Ramu Johnson. His assets include a house valued at $350000, shares worth $150000 and a car worth $35000. His liabilities include a mortgage balance of
$150000 and an outstanding car loan $15000 to be paid.

Now Ramu Johnson’s Net Worth = ($350000+$150000+$35000) – ($150000+$15000)
= ($535000 ) – ($165000)
= $370000

Assuming Ramu Johnson’s financial position after five years as follows –
House value at $350000, Shares value at $180000, savings $ 40000 and car value $25000. While mortgage loan $120000, car loan $0 (paid off).

The Net worth after 5 years would = ($350000+$180000+$ 40000 + $25000 ) – ($120000)
= $595000 – $120000
= $475000

Here it is understood that, although the fact that the value of a house and car decrease, the net worth have increased to $475000. It is because a decline in house loan is less than the overall asset base and decrease in liabilities.

Note that, an individual’s net worth can be negative if his asset base is less than liabilities.
