#DefineYourDrive- Determination

#DefineYourDrive- Determination

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. I saw the dedication and the comradery of soldiers that gave up their freedom to protect ours and that is what made me want to join. I joined because I wanted to serve my country, I wanted to do something to help others, and give back to my community. Joining the military is what has made me into the …

#DefineYourDrive- Family

Submitted by: Jason Connell – District Director of Operations, Georgia I grew up in a small Georgia town where I was taught at a young age that hard work, integrity, and family were most important. I was fortunate enough to be raised by some amazing people, not just parents but uncles, aunts, and grandparents that helped mold me into the person I am today. Upon high school graduation, I became a United States Marine. Being a Marine instilled in me the disciplines to work hard and never quit. In my retail career and now here at TitleMax, I have had …

However, two years later family issues led to me stepping back into a different role to be able to better assist my family. During that time, I buried one child, graduated another from college, and recently adopted …

The Fire Inside

The Fire Inside

Submitted by: Laura Fain, TitleMax General Manager “Often it’s the deepest pain which empowers you to grow into your highest self.” This quote has resonated with me throughout the years. I always wondered that if I was never a domestic violence survivor, if I would be as determined and courageous enough to go through life with the highest expectations for myself. It wasn’t until almost dying that I truly understood the power that I personally had to be whomever I wanted to be. I am not regretful of my experience; in fact, I owe my success to my experience. Without …

Young and Fearless- My Journey Through Breast Cancer…

Submitted by: Amber Black, Director of Human Resources/Workforce Management Goodness, where do I begin?  Well for starters, I could explain the utter shock of my diagnosis at age 32 considering there was NO prior history of breast cancer in my family.  I was diagnosed on 6/19/2015 with Triple Negative (TNBC) Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (IDC) of my left breast, Stage 1 and Grade 3. Now, once you become well versed in the topic of cancer, you begin to learn that the Stage determines how far along the cancer is when you’re diagnosed and is based on how large the tumor is, …

School Supplies = Success!

School Supplies = Success!

Submitted by: Jamie Lane, Director of Internal Communications  Throughout July and August, we held our first Company-wide Back-to-School Supply Drive.

This drive event is an important part of our TMX Cares commitment …
