Classes

Live Classes.

No high school flashbacks allowed! This isn’t about homework, grades, or boring lectures. It’s about changing the way you think about money. Want an in-depth presentation on the YNAB method? Let Jim teach you to Prioritize, or have Sherri show you how to Deal with Your Debt. You'll get soup-to-nuts and the chance to chat over your questions. Want to drill down deep on a more specific topic? Join Ronna for one of our Workshops, where we keep the groups small and give you the chance to ask your question live (you know, like a call-in show but so much better). No matter which you choose, you'll master the art of budgeting – with the help of someone who has lived it!

You’ll know exactly how and why to give every dollar a job, and how to be prepared for less frequent (and larger!) expenses. You’ll learn to adjust and adapt as you roll with the punches, and how to break the paycheck-to-paycheck cycle by aging your money. Join us to get started – and sleep better at night.

Meet Your Teachers

Each of YNAB's Teachers is a YNAB success story. Their experience makes them uniquely qualified to show you how to change your life with YNAB.

Erin

Erin is a former high school teacher whose credit card debt spiraled out of control because she was only tracking some of her spending. She found YNAB in 2006, learned to track all her spending, and eliminated the debt!.

Lee

Lee was an instructor in the Navy who used to use a spreadsheet to manage his money, but it didn’t handle overspending well. With YNAB, he learned to roll with the punches and he’s never looked back.

Ronna

Ronna is a graduate student in NYC who realized the paper envelope method of budgeting was difficult with her urban on-the-go lifestyle. She discovered YNAB while searching for a modern approach, and became an instant devotee!

Sherri

Sherri was a technology integration specialist in New Hampshire, helping students and teachers to become 21st-century learners. YNAB helped her finally get a handle on the family finances and now she’s excited to teach people how to get a handle on theirs.

Jim

Jim was a music instructor and business owner who was frustrated with other financial management tools that were a lot of work, but really didn't help him make good money decisions. YNAB helped him simplify, prioritize and focus his attention on what matters most.

Dave

Dave left his job behind in England and is now homesteading in Northern Ontario.   He found YNAB in 2008 when immigration delays destroyed his spreadsheet forecasts. Faced with mounting debts and stress, he knew something had to change.  He loves simple budgets, and the reality of zero-based budgeting.
