Jesse Mecham is the founder of YouNeedABudget.com (called YNAB for short, if you're busy). He teaches individuals, families, and business owners Four Rules for thinking about their money in a whole new way. While broke and a newly married college student, Jesse launched his original software as a spreadsheet...and it made money. (The software has come a long way since then.) When not teaching people how to budget, Jesse loves gardening, CrossFit, marksmanship, and travel. He also spends a good bit of time with his wife and the five small people that live in their house with them.

If you think bookkeeping is a valueless, soul-sucking, I'd-rather-stab-my-eye-with-a-pencil activity...well, I couldn't agree more. You're doing it all wrong. I'll walk you through my journey of ever-increasing stress because of ever-increasing revenue. The more money we made, the more stressed I became. Until I started practicing what I preached. Here are Four Rules that will transform the way you think about and manage your money.
