The Amazing Country of Chile

The Amazing Country of Chile

This month is Hispanic heritage month and I‘d like to talk about the amazing country my family is from, Chile. Chile is located between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.

Leaders Making History: Nicolas Rodriguez, Regional Vice President

Nicolas Rodriguez always imagined he would grow up to help others. Although his father’s goal was to have him take on the family strawberry farm, Rodriguez wanted to hold his own career in business and leadership. He was able to do just that.

Things didn’t work out because I wanted to be in California. When I came back to the states, I reconnected with the recruiter, …

Food and Family: The Cornerstone of Our Traditions

Food and Family: The Cornerstone of Our Traditions

I have always believed the true sign of a wealthy person is not how large their bank account is, but by the amount of love one has with their family and friends. I come from a proud Hispanic family. My parents worked very hard to ensure that my siblings and I never went without. More importantly, they made sure that we always bonded in making life long memories with each other. I have three brothers and two sisters spread across the state of Texas. Our lives can get pretty busy with everything we have going on– from school, work, and …

Survivor, Not Victim

Survivor, Not Victim

Submitted by: Misty Spooner, General Manager *Content may be upsetting to some. Please read with caution. Domestic Violence used to be a topic that no one wanted to talk about or face. Thankfully, over the years it is now getting the attention it deserves. My story began when I started dating a guy whom I had previously dated in high school in October of 2004. Prior to dating him, I had lost my first husband to suicide and I was not emotionally stable or ready to be in another relationship, especially the kind I was about to find myself in. …

Building a Presence in the Hispanic Community

Building a Presence in the Hispanic Community

Submitted by: Erik Roldan, General Manager My name is Erik Roldan and my family is from Colombia. I learned to speak Spanish when my grandparents came to live with us when I was 5.  My grandmother did not speak any English so it forced me to learn Spanish at a young age in order to communicate with my grandmother. She provided a big Hispanic influence in my household, between cooking, listening to music, and always watching Spanish television. On September 15, 2018, several TMX Finance® Family of Companies team members volunteered for the Latin American Association’s (LAA) Hispanic Heritage Night …

How Mexican Heritage is Reflected in TitleMax

How Mexican Heritage is Reflected in TitleMax

Being part of the TitleMax® team has allowed me to see and feel the warmth of the Mexican culture. I really enjoy the way my Hispanic customers open up to me. They not only come in to get a loan, but to talk about their families, their plans, and even what they plan to cook that night or do that weekend. Being part of this team has allowed me to form deeper and stronger relationships with clients than what is accustomed in this industry because you know so much more about your clients and their families. This type of relationship …

Las Tradiciones De Nuestra Cultura

Las Tradiciones De Nuestra Cultura

As a Mexican, born and raised just South of the Texas border, in Tamaulipas, I came to the U.S. with many of our traditions. I was 7 when I arrived in Dallas, Texas. Around this time, in 1993, Dallas was really starting to look and feel as if “that time of the year” was near. To me the weather was different but the things we were going to start celebrating were still the same. Around this time of the year, my mom, my tias, and my ‘buela were talking about all the things we needed to prepare for since “El …
