About the Author
Jesse Mecham founded YNAB in 2004 to help him and his wife, Julie, watch their money. While studying for his master of accountancy, Jesse put his numbers wizardry to work to develop an expense-tracking system. A few (ok, more than a few) versions later, this is now the YNAB Method and software that exists today. He lives in Utah with his family.
