Empowering Women

Empowering Women

At the TMX Finance® Family of Companies, we’ve always been committed to establishing equality to help ensure a level playing field for the growth and development of all Team Members. In 2019, we took this to the next level as we piloted a peer group program aimed at empowering our Corporate Team Members to reach their full potential with the support and mentoring of those around them. This was called Empower Women Peer Groups. The primary goal of the program was to create an inclusive, safe space for Team Members to discuss and resolve issues that are perceived as standing …

Bulls and Bears

Bulls and Bears

Bulls and Bears. Sounds scary doesn’t it? You’ve likely heard of the stock market being bullish or bearish. So, what does that really mean? A bull market is favorable, where prices are going up and shares traded are high value. A bear market is the opposite, where the market is showing a lack of confidence and values drop. The trick to making a good investment is all in the timing. Buy low and sell high. This will give you a profit. Easy right? Unfortunately, investors are often emotional, and sell quickly in a bear market and buy in a bull …

Minimalist Management

Minimalist Management

Traditionally, we think of management as measuring an employee’s performance based on how well they execute tasks. Throughout my career, each position of leadership I’ve held has become increasingly complex. Makes sense, right? I’ve played many roles, and with each my stress level increased and my perception of the value I create diminished despite expending a lot more energy. But is that entirely necessary? Maybe not. Can you accomplish more with less? Conversely, a minimalist manager would measure performance based on eventual results, rather than individual tasks. If employees are meeting goals and accomplishing directives, then their approach to work …

The Starting Line to Self-Development

The Starting Line to Self-Development

We are very lucky to live in a world that is ever changing and evolving. It presents us endless opportunities to be whoever we want to be. But with the world moving so quickly around us, the need for self-development is at an all-time high. It is incredible how much our society, technology, and education has advanced in the last 15 years; even in that advancement, many people have fallen behind. I strongly believe that is because the ‘American Dream’ has changed drastically. Young women and men are no longer dreaming about only buying a house, starting a family, and …

Positioning Yourself for More: My Journey to Corporate

Positioning Yourself for More: My Journey to Corporate

“I’m convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.” – Charles R. Swindoll I feel that this quote set the foundation for my career with TitleMax® early on (thanks to my manager at the time, Dickson Sipemba!) What this means to me: be flexible and embrace change with an open and positive mind! Prior to working in the Dallas Corporate Office, I was a General Manager in the field. To say it was an adjustment is an understatement. I was so used to the everyday chaos that consumes a General Manager, that …

Feedback: The Fertilizer to Professional Growth

Feedback: The Fertilizer to Professional Growth

Asking a coworker or supervisor for honest feedback can sometimes be harder to navigate than it seems. Even when you decide “Okay, I am going to ask for some hard-hitting truth here,” and directly ask for it, the information you receive can be difficult to digest. When receiving negative feedback on my performance at the TMX Finance® Family of Companies, I know that whoever is giving me feedback wants me to get better and wants me to succeed. Sometimes I have an idea of where I could improve, and those suspicions are confirmed after simply asking for feedback. Other times, …
