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 …

Cole’s Journey

Submitted by: Misty Edwards, Senior Treasury Analyst On March 15, 2015, Misty Edwards, Senior Treasury Analyst for the TMX Finance Family of Companies, received news that would turn her and her family’s life upside down. She had to hear four of the scariest words no parent ever wants to hear – “Your son has cancer.” Misty had taken her son Cole to the doctor for what she thought was just a cold. However, the doctor immediately sent Cole for testing and that’s when everything changed. “Hearing that your 19-month old son has cancer was beyond anything I could have imagined. Then …

Thankful and Blessed to Beat the Odds

Thankful and Blessed to Beat the Odds

Submitted by: Schelley Roessler, General Manager My name is Schelley Roessler and I’m 38 years old. I’m a wife of 12 years and a proud mom of Callie, 10 and Camden, 9. In August 2010 my life was turned upside down for me and my family. I have always had health problems, but never did I think the worst of it would start at age 29. I had my daughter and son only 14 months apart. I had terrible pregnancies and my doctor thought that having children in a closer year span would help with my endometriosis after having children. However, …

My Experience Volunteering at Operation Kindness

Submitted by: Frankie Tijerina, Product Marketing Manager Life is short. A dog’s life is even shorter. Why not fill it with kindness? For those of you that know me, and my devout love for dogs, it’s probably no surprise that I would jump at the chance to volunteer at an animal shelter. I grew up around dogs and developed a deep passion for these incredible animals. It’s not unusual to see me running down the street to pet a dog. You know that ‘Me When I See Dogs’ meme? Yep – that’s me! And I have no shame. I’m completely …

Help a Child in Need on Their First Day of School

Help a Child in Need on Their First Day of School

Submitted by: Amira Mccall, Summer Intern The cost for Back-to-School supplies ranges close to $200.00 for high school and middle school students, and those supplies will hopefully make it through the first semester. Most teenagers and parents have plenty of things on their mind other than having enough money to buy school supplies, such as family, bills, and general life problems. Which makes it hard to start the school year off right. Donating school supplies will help take at least one worry away for these students. School supplies are needed all across the nation, starting in August and even year-round, …
