I won’t beat around the bush—there is a direct, cause-and-effect relationship between your anxiety about money and how often you interact with your budget in a meaningful way.
If you don’t budget, I’m going to go out on a limb and say, you probably shoulder a lot of anxiety about money. This is how most people come to YNAB—they are stressed, they are drowning, they are overwhelmed, and it’s impacting their quality of life in a big way.
And even taking that first step of deciding to budget and setting it up for the first time, feels really good. It feels productive. With a plan, you can begin to take back control. Total control is the goal and this is where it starts.
There’s some other really great stuff in the video. You should just watch it.
