4 Travel Spots for the 4th of July!

Submitted by: Thomas D. Bridgman II, District Director of Operations Irving, Texas To my family, July 4th is an important holiday. It is a time to reflect on our Nation and the many great people who have worked hard to make this Republic the great democracy that it is. We are very proud of this nation and celebrate its independence with fireworks, barbeque, and travel. We’ve taken some wonderful July 4th holiday trips over the years, but I’ve listed our four most favorite family vacation spots for you!   Stone Mountain, Georgia. We traveled to this suburb of Atlanta to watch their …

Family, Food, and Fun at the Beach!

Family, Food, and Fun at the Beach!

Submitted by: Gregory Ludwig, General Manager- TMX Certified Trainer   We are planning to spend our 4th of July the same way we do every year… relaxing with friends and family at Coligny Beach on Hilton Head Island. Every year, we get up early, pack up our grill, hot dogs, and sparklers then head out early to beat the beach crowd!     Luckily, this year we get to spend the day with a family friend who is an active Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Army and my father-in-law who served for 25 years in the U.S. Navy. Our family is proud of their service and we are honored to spend the day celebrating the freedoms they have sacrificed so much …

Red Nose Day!

Red Nose Day!

Submitted by: Theresa Doran, Senior Director of Corporate Operations  Were you helped by a team member wearing a red nose? We loved celebrating Red Nose Day and wore our red noses with pride! Here in the Contact Center at our Dallas corporate office and in our stores across the country, we wore our red noses to help change the lives of children in the United States and around the world living in poverty. We purchased our Red Noses at Walgreens to help the non-profit organization Comic Relief Inc. provide meals for kids, life-saving vaccines, and safe places for at-risk children …

Team Bielss for the Win on Father’s Day!

Team Bielss for the Win on Father’s Day!

A Special Post President, Mentor, Dad, Poppy- these are all the names that our Company President, Otto Bielss, goes by these days. We see him as our fearless leader, carrying us through the business day and setting a shining example of what it takes to succeed. His passion for the TMX Finance Family of Companies runs a very close second to the love he has for the ones who call him Dad and Poppy, and for that we are very lucky and happily concede to taking 2nd place. If you follow Otto on social media, you can easily see his …

A Father’s Love

A Father’s Love

Submitted by: Lionel Rutledge, Customer Service Representative  I have always considered myself a real “man’s man”. I was an Aviation Maintenance Administrator in the United States Navy and a damn fine Sailor. However, the day my daughter was born, all that “manliness” flew out the window with the first sight of my precious baby girl! These days, you’ll find me singing along each morning with The Little Einstein’s theme song, without any hesitation, just so I can see her smile! As you can probably tell from this picture, she has me wrapped around her little finger. I know it’s sad but …

Brick by Brick- How My Walls Came Down

Brick by Brick- How My Walls Came Down

Submitted by: Emily Wright, Credit Risk Analyst Being estranged from your biological father is not a pleasant situation, especially when the loss occurs during the emotional teenage years. You are constantly embroiled in an emotional tug-of-war; betrayal, disbelief, and resentment intermingling with the already boiling brain biology of a high school girl. The natural outlet of frustration falls unto the easiest target, which was mom’s new husband, William (or Top, which is what everyone calls him, after his grandfather). We were a stereotypical display of dysfunction. Top and my mother tried diligently to win my favor, and I vehemently denied …

#DefineYourDrive: Family

#DefineYourDrive: Family

Submitted by: Katelynn Migues I was always the girl who not only doubted herself, but who always seemed to be doubted by others. But ever since I was young, I have always found ways to do things on my own. I always saved money to get what I wanted before anyone could buy it for me and I would save hundreds! I knew what I wanted and I worked hard to make it happen. Through my experiences, I have learned to push myself to keep moving forward. I’m now 21 years old with a home I purchased for myself at …

#DefineYourDrive: Loyalty

#DefineYourDrive: Loyalty

Submitted by: Alheli “Lily” Zuniga I came to the United States over 24 years ago and since day one, I always wanted to do something good for myself. I have had a total of three jobs in my entire work life. I spent nine years with one company where I learned to be loyal, dedicated, and passionate. In those nine years, I was able to start from the bottom and move up to eventually oversee more than 25 employees. My experience there, along with my determination to become part of something bigger, got me where I am today. Every day I …

Memorial Day – A Day of Remembrance

Memorial Day – A Day of Remembrance

Submitted by: Jamie Lane, Director of Internal Communications  “Today is the day we put aside to remember fallen heroes and to pray that no heroes will ever have to die for us again. It’s a day of thanks for the valor of others, a day to remember the splendor of America and those of her children who rest in this cemetery and others. It’s a day to be with the family and remember.” Ronald Reagan, 1986 Leading up to this Memorial Day, I reached out to several of our veteran and current military team members so we could share their …

What Memorial Day Means To Me; Joseph Trella

What Memorial Day Means To Me; Joseph Trella

What Memorial Day Means to Me Submitted by: Joseph Trella, District Director of Operations When I was young man, Memorial Day was a holiday where we recognized the many sacrifices members of the military made for our Country. But until I joined the United States Marine Corp, I never knew how deep those sacrifices went or how those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Country should be honored. I have always wanted to serve my Country. I knew that becoming a United States Marine was my destiny as a young man. I joined the Marine Corps based on the …
