Life-changing

We started seriously using YNAB and listening to this podcast in January. Thanks to that, in March we were for the first time out of the paycheck to paycheck cycle when we both lost our jobs AND got sick with Covid-19 at the same time. Thanks to this amazing tool we had the peace of mind to be able to heal up without the stress of money on our minds. We are still waiting to receive unemployment, but not stressed at all. I’ve tried numerous budgeting systems over the years and YNAB is by far the best. If you take the time to learn it and listen to the podcast to get inspired, this system can change your life! I especially find the “debt stories” series to be inspiring. Thank you YNAB!

Short, sweet and relevant

This podcast is helpful because I can stay inspired to keep up with budgeting and properly keep up with finances and I can listen an entire episode on my short commute to work. #YNAB=GameChanger

Older episodes are better

Love the YNAB software, have been using various versions of it since 2013. Discovered this podcast early 2019 and binged the old episodes and listened to the new ones each week in real time. The last 6 months have been hit or miss, some episodes are short and pointless. I really feel like it could be so much more, maybe if there were listener submitted topics or questions? Still love YNAB, their blog on their website is awesome and the free classes are great.
