Why Wesabe Lost to Mint

[Great post](http://blog.precipice.org/why-wesabe-lost-to-mint) by Marc Hedlund on his blog detailing the rise and fall of Wesabe. Like the Snapper story, I love these kinds of thoughtful business narratives. (There’s got to be a project in that.)

I tried [Mint](http://mint.com/) but ultimately was uncomfortable with my financial data traversing the intarwebs. (I know, I know, it does anyway. But usually it does so in pieces, not in large chunks the way it felt like when I interacted with Mint.) Perhaps Wesabe’s functionality would have overcome my reticence.

By the way, his advice for failure and/or depression? *Ship something.*
