Forgive to Rebuild

Forgive to Rebuild

In American race relations there’s room for one thing – forgiveness.  It’s like a spoonful of liquid medicine. It is important, it heals, it strengthens. How many times have I walked in front of someone and not held the door?  Then seconds later thought, “ugh, that was silly, why didn’t I hold the door?”  Then those days when I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to let another driver into my lane.  So, I just speed by and let them get in whenever, however.  The best thing I can do when I am aware that I haven’t made room …

Lead Like Women: Why I Choose to Empower

Lead Like Women: Why I Choose to Empower

Most women in leadership roles at the TMX Finance® Family of Companies inspire me. Despite their hectic lives, they get up every day with passion and enthusiasm for our industry. They get out of their comfort zone and venture into the unknown, all while remaining positive and bringing high energy.  They want to see everyone reach their full potential. They don’t seek to build their kingdom; they genuinely seek to build people! These are true leaders, and that is so inspiring to me! I’ve been with the TMX Finance® Family of Companies for seven years. I started as a Customer …

As a 31-year-old wife and mother, I have always struggled with finding that perfect balance of having a career that would allow me time with my family.

Being the wife of a first responder has its own set of challenges, but ones that have taught me to take each day as a blessing and to enjoy every day with no regrets. My son is by far my greatest accomplishment and my biggest blessing. So, it …

My Native American Roots

My Native American Roots

Growing up, I was raised to be proud of my Native American roots and Comanche runs deep on my mother’s side of the family. In 1977, I had the opportunity to meet my great-grandmother who spoke mainly her native language with a little Spanish; she was 104 at that time. With the help of my grandfather, he was able to translate the fascinating stories of her childhood and how she lived. It was like stepping back in time and being educated without the history books. This is a memory I will always treasure.  A few years ago, through modern technology, …

When Hollywood Learned to Speak Different Languages

When Hollywood Learned to Speak Different Languages

Enrique Gonzalez serves as an expert movie critic and writes a weekly column for a local Hispanic news publication in Phoenix, AZ. In addition to his role as a General Manager at TMX Finance® Family of Companies, he has been a local radio and television personality, movie promoter, and most recently, a podcast host. At the beginning of the industrial film era most productions did not have audio. In 1920, the silent cinema was a universal cinema, so the nationality of the actors did not matter nor their voices. Really, the quality Hollywood was seeking were faces that looked good …
