YNAB Debt Stories - We Need Your Help!

Hey there YNABers!

Sometimes it’s hard to ask for help, but when we realized it was our wonderful forum friends we would be asking it became a whole lot easier. Why? Because, well, you’re awesome! So I’ll just come right out and say it. We need your help. 

We are filming a new video course series on debt. Did you know that 75% of Americans are in debt? Debt holds us back. It restricts our creativity and stops us from living the lives we really want.  Here at YNAB we’re all about helping others take control of their finances and live the life they want. That’s a whole lot easier to do when you’re not in debt. But those of you using YNAB to get out of debt already know that, don’t you? Afterall, that’s probably one of the reasons why you're here!

We know that each of your stories is unique—it’s different, it’s inspiring, and that’s because it’s about you, and we’d love to hear it! Our new debt course will feature a series of video stories from real YNABers that are in the middle of their debt journey or already past the finish line. The questions (details below) were formulated to inspire you to think about your life before, during, and after your debt.  A little bit of inspiration can breed a whole lot of motivation and we think that YNABers hearing the debt journeys of real people will make a huge difference in their motivation to get out of debt (and stay out!)

If you’re interested in inspiring other YNABers and sharing your story via video recording, read on! It should only take about 30-45 minutes of your time and we’d love to give you some awesome YNAB swag as a thank you.  If that doesn’t sound like the coolest thing since sliced bread, no sweat! Not everyone wants to be YouTube famous and we get that.
