So far so good

Wish I found this APP when I was newly married and not 15 years from retirement.

It’s a clean, simple budgeting tool that leaves accountability solely with the user. Plenty of support via Podcast, YouTube and Facebook.

I have had immediate results with use and look forward to seeing where this will take us in the future!

A Great Podcast on Everything Personal Finance

Short and easy-to-listen-to episodes, covering a wide variety of personal finance topics. Jesse has a very approachable and relaxed tone as he talks about these topics and the short format works perfectly for my short commutes.
A great personal finance podcast whether you use YNAB or not.
