YNAB You Need A Budget

You Need A Budget

Money Talk

A few weeks ago, I recorded a podcast with Jaclyn Johnson, the founder of Create & Cultivate and host of the Work Party Podcast. Today our episode is L-I-V-E!

When I got invitation to the Work Party Podcast (which, by the way, has over 1 million downloads!) to chat about budgeting, I immediately called my mom and dad. I knew, for them, this would be me peaking in my career. Ha! I talk about that a lot in our episode: how my parents were very strategic about how we chatted about money and money management growing up. And that all they have ever wanted for both my sister and I is to be good stewards of whatever we have, a lot or a little, and know how to manage it properly. Truly, as parents, I think this was one of their bigger triumphs. Budgeting was never a “have to”, it was always a “get to” “¦ and for that I am grateful.

I’ve used many programs as I’ve learned the mechanics of budgeting over the years, but You Need A Budget is by far the one we (Ryan and I) have loved the most. It’s the most intuitive program I’ve ever used and, I hate to say it, but really does make budgeting “fun”. I love the way everything syncs to your phone, so you are never left second-guessing yourself. For us, YNAB has been crucial in how we’ve managed our finances over the years. And by that, I mean kept us on track to reach our dreams (like saving for a new car, home renovations, vacations, paying off debt..etc..). We couldn’t be bigger fans of the program.

  1. I would like to read the podcast show notes as I’m hard of hearing and most of the time need closed captions or printed material. I went to the link you provided along with the website of workparty, I am unable to find anything in print. I’ll go read your older post with Ryan, instead. Thank you for being candid about money & budgeting.
