Who is teaching your child about money? If your not, then chances are that no one is. 9 Year Mortgage recognizes that personal finance is not taught in schools and the only way they are learning is by example. Children often do not see their parents paying their mortgage or utility bills; what they do see is a piece of plastic that pays for most of your daily activities. The moment your child starts noticing the connection between money and purchases, you as their parent, have the obligation to teach them the truth about money; the earlier the better.
In this article, Nine Year Mortgage will share a few options that you have in helping your children start saving for their future education. We all know that education is widely thought of as a key to our future success. In order for us to get that key, we must have money to fund our educational endeavors. Starting to invest early helps money to grow over time. These plans will help your child’s money grow, so you can stress less about how they will end up pay for college.
The holiday season is over, but stores are not seeing a major decrease in spending by consumers like they have seen in the past. Contrary to thought, consumers are not planning on slowing down when it comes to their spending.

9 Year Mortgage is aware of the economic crisis and we highly recommend taking a fine toothed comb to your expense budgets, as you can see from our other posts, but there is another way you can help make ends meet–consider taking on a second job.

If you are seeking to balance your career and family or you just want some flexibility within your occupation, a home based business may be your answer. 9 Year Mortgage believes that a home based business may just give you that incentive to increase your income by being 100% responsible for you financial well being. If you are intrigued with the idea of being your own boss and having maximum independence within your career, then you may be the perfect candidate for a home based business. But before you quit your current job or decide to run a business while your child takes a nap, there are plenty of things you need to consider.
Have you noticed how many children in middle school have cell phones, and how this trend is trickling down to elementary aged kids too? By chance have you noticed the child in the store holding his mom’s iTouch and playing Angry Birds to pass the time? How about a teen glued to their TV, lap top, or gaming system? Ever seen one of them totally zoned out while walking with their ear buds in and their cell phone glued to their thumb? This is what 9 Year Mortgage calls talented multitasking! Now, have you ever shook your head at any of these scenarios and questioned what the parents were thinking?
What teenager does not have a cell phone these days? Teens use their phones to download music, access email, and to send endless text messages to the world. To cut back on costs, suggest to your children that you will pay the basics of their plan, but they are on their own for the rest of the bill. Kids will be a lot more responsible with their phone if they know they will have to pay for overage charges, ring tones, and exceeding their texting limit.

As a truck driver, we are always out on the road and paying bills is not easy. Then on one of our runs we were passing through Utah and called in to make arrangements to stop at the 9 Year Mortgage Office. We were given a personal tour of the office. We were so impressed by your staff that we got started with the program right away. Our only regret is that we waited a year to take action.
