Sometimes you discover something that's been out there for years and you want to smack yourself in the head for not tuning in to it sooner. That's how I feel when it comes to YNAB. (For the uninitiated YNAB stands for You Need A Budget.)

I used YNAB years ago and my response at that time was, "ho-hum." I then proceeded to ignore it for the next 6 years to my own detriment. Bummer. I wish I'd paid more attention!

I was reintroduced to YNAB by my own listeners (the full story is in this episode) and today I'm thrilled to introduce YNAB as a sponsor of Radical Personal Finance!

Check out this interview with Jesse Mecham, the founder of YNAB for an introduction to him, his story, and the YNAB company. It's a super interesting story of entrepreneurship, growth, and the creation of an awesome product which fits a real need that most of us have.

Enjoy!
