First of all, your thread title is confusing as mentioning "hero" will make people think you're talking about heroes, not about yourself. Just for future reference we call the player "shopkeeper".
So your thread is about shopkeeper level vs. networth, not hero level vs. networth ^^
Networth and Shopkeeper level are not inherently linked.
Networth is the amount of gold you have put into your town, which is your investment, plus whatever money you have put into upgrading resource bins, workstations, etc...
Shopkeeper level is gained from selling items, which give exp. The only way to level up your shopkeeper is to sell items to your customers (heroes). Selling items on the trade house does not give exp.
The reason a player of lower level than you may have a higher networth is because they are likely selling their stuff on the trade house - which nets them 0 exp but will net them a lot more money.
