Interview With the YNAB Guy

His name is Jesse Mecham, actually, and I've interviewed him over on the main site:

Interview: Jesse Mecham, Creator,

The great thing about Jesse (aside from the fact that his budgeting software is pretty sweet) is that he admits to being a hardened, dastardly e-criminal at the tender age of 14. But you'll have to read the interview to see what that's all about . . ..

Hi, I must admit that the interview I read here was very interesting. American culture is founded on consuming and I am no exception ...About a month back I came across this tool. It helped me get out of debt and manage my money very effectively.


Great interview! I've been using YNAB since January 2006 and recently purchased YNAB pro and JUST LOVE IT! I would be afraid to go back to the primitive way I was doing my Spending Plan.
I love using last month's income. I dont really even think about payday except to record it.
