Roxanne Powell – TitleMax General Manager, Alabama I decided to join the Army National Guard after my sister deployed to Afghanistan. When I went to her deployment ceremony, I witnessed the selfless service of my sister and her brothers-and-sisters in arms.

#DefineYourDrive: Progress

Submitted by: Bonnie Gringer, Online Marketing Manager Keep your eye on the target and dare to think outside the box! You never know if an uncertain vision you have today will become the seeds for tomorrow’s future! Think outside the box like the artists who were turned down or unrecognized for their work such as Van Gogh, a starving artist during his lifetime; Walt Disney who was told he “lacked imagination”; and Bach who was not recognized as a great composer in his time, but as an organist. Or authors such as, Agatha Christie whose work was rejected for five …
