How Growing Up a Military Brat Prepared Me For Today

How Growing Up a Military Brat Prepared Me For Today

Some of you have heard the term “Military Brat” used for children of military personnel. I grew up in a military home; a home that experienced frequent changes, moves, and new beginnings. My father, Chief Warrant Officer Jeff Bradbury, served 30 years in the United States Coast Guard, making me a “Coastie Brat.” Growing up, I felt this term held a negative connotation on who I was as a person. However, as I look back at my childhood and early adult life, I realize that I developed an exclusive set of skills from this lifestyle that are highly transferable to …

Balancing a Healthy Lifestyle

Balancing a Healthy Lifestyle

I’ve always been the kind of person who avoids exercise at all costs. Back in high school, I’d choose the weightlifting option in gym class while everyone else went to play indoor soccer. This decision was partially motivated by the fact that I could sit on the leg press machine for forty minutes doing absolutely nothing, and partially to avoid an inevitable indoor soccer injury (usually in the form of a broken nose). As I got older, it became much easier to avoid working out because of all the new excuses that adulthood brought to the table. I was always …

Define Your Drive: My Transition Into the Working World

Define Your Drive: My Transition Into the Working World

I have worked at TMX Finance® Family of Companies for almost 2 years now, and have held a few different titles so far! I started out as the Front Desk Coordinator, moved to the Corporate Operations Coordinator position, and I am now the Talent Program Coordinator in the Talent Acquisition department!

4 Steps to Igniting Your Career Love

A Brand New Ball Game

A Brand New Ball Game

It has been over 13 months now since I last laced up my spikes. It is safe to say that I have officially ‘hung it up’ with my baseball career. I have transitioned from pitching a ball to a catcher to assisting in the resolution of a wide array of employee cases. To some, this transition may seem totally unrelated and independent of one another. In my eyes, these two worlds join forces in ways you may never have thought possible. This transition was an opportunity for me to apply everything baseball has taught me into the corporate world. The …

Set Yourself Up to Hit Your Goals and Make 2019 Your Best Year Yet

Set Yourself Up to Hit Your Goals and Make 2019 Your Best Year Yet

Webster would define a goal as “the object of a person’s ambition or effort; an aim or a desired result.” Prevailing wisdom would lend you that the best way to achieve our goals would be to set specific, measurable and actionable goals. For years, I approached my goals the same way. I’ve set goals for starting, for stopping; for being quicker; for slowing down; for earning more; for spending less; for health, fitness, productivity, and for simply doing more with less. I approached them all the same. I’ve succeeded a few, and failed at many. Eventually I realized that my …

New Year New Career

New Year New Career

With 2018 disappearing in the rear view, we find ourselves with a great opportunity to make 2019 all the things that 2018 wasn’t. Everyone has different goals they are reaching for during the year, but at the end of 2018 I found myself in a boat I think a lot of people have been in before. Working holiday schedules as well as weekends for many years had me aiming my efforts toward finding a position in which I could spend more time with my family. I knew I wanted a better balance between my work life and my personal life …
