Take a Hike

Take a Hike

Whether you want to lose weight, spend time outside with your friends and loved ones, or unplug from the legion of screens, you may want to consider taking a hike. There are a lot of physical and mental health benefits that come with regular time spent outdoors. My name is Nathan Jablonski, and I am a General Manager in Winder, GA. I have been with the Company since November 2020, but before joining the TMX Finance® Family of Companies, I worked for a health and nutrition store. I am also a reservist in the United States Army (so yes, I …

Women in Leadership: Why I Choose to Empower

Women in Leadership: Why I Choose to Empower

I was raised in a Lebanese and Mexican household with three brothers. Growing up, I felt suppressed and was told how women should act and what we can and cannot do. But since I am stubborn, outspoken, and strong-willed, I proved, not only to myself but to others, that the expectations the world has for women are not always right. By sharing a few of my accomplishments while working at the TMX Finance® Family of Companies, maybe I can inspire other women, girls, and -most importantly -my daughter to take action, work hard for what they want, keep their heads …

Find Your TMX Career Love Through Our Mission of Helping People

Find Your TMX Career Love Through Our Mission of Helping People

In 2014, I went into a local sandwich shop in San Antonio, TX. If you asked me today, I would tell you I never thought my craving for a sandwich would change my entire future. After paying for my sandwich, I headed to my car and a sign caught my eye. It read “$2,000, $3,000, $5,000.” At the time, I needed $2,500 to pay off some tickets in order to renew my driver’s license, and the job I was applying for required me to have a valid one; I was stuck with no options. I had gone to my bank …

Why You Should #LoveWhereYouWork

Why You Should #LoveWhereYouWork

When you begin a career journey, you aim to find a place that is going to be where you want to retire from. A career is separate from a job. A career is somewhere you can invest in the company and they will invest in you. Before I began my journey with TitleMax® I was a department manager at a local grocery store. I felt as if I had met my growth potential in my current role and wanted to expand into something I am more passionate about. I decided I wanted to work in the finance industry because I …

National Mentoring Month: What Mentoring Means to Me

National Mentoring Month: What Mentoring Means to Me

Being a mentor gives me permission to examine my values and see how they align with those around me. When I first joined our Team Up Mentoring Program, I was excited to dive in and mentor one of my coworkers! My first mentee was a lovely person who was willing to talk big picture, but not quite interested in exploring things that are only revealed in the quiet, small places. We developed an understanding, but there were no “AH HA” moments. Similarly, my second mentee was a bit shy of professional relationships. So, it was very difficult for us to …

National Mentoring Month: What Mentoring Means to Me

National Mentoring Month:  What Mentoring Means to Me

Celebrating National Mentoring Month is special to me for a couple of reasons: First, as Senior Director of Corporate Talent Management, the TMX Finance® Family of Companies’ mentoring program – Team Up – is an area I now oversee. It is exciting to be a part of such a rewarding program and understand the importance of the relationships that are fostered as a result! I have participated as a mentee several times and have had some awesome mentors that have coached me through some difficult decisions and offered some really sage advice that has stuck with me far beyond my …

Celebrating el Día de los Reyes Magos

Celebrating el Día de los Reyes Magos

I love El Día de los Reyes Magos (Three Kings’ Day) because it is the last tamalada, the word we use for big parties that consist of making tamales, of the year. This has been a tradition in my family as far back as I remember. Growing up, my family celebrated el Día de los Reyes Magos by gathering at the house of one of the tías. As we got older, my sister and I hosted the Rosca de Reyes (Three Kings’ Bread) celebration. On this day, we buy a huge loaf of bread, in the shape of an oval …
