Take a Hike

Take a Hike

Whether you want to lose weight, spend time outside with your friends and loved ones, or unplug from the legion of screens, you may want to consider taking a hike. There are a lot of physical and mental health benefits that come with regular time spent outdoors. My name is Nathan Jablonski, and I am a General Manager in Winder, GA. I have been with the Company since November 2020, but before joining the TMX Finance® Family of Companies, I worked for a health and nutrition store. I am also a reservist in the United States Army (so yes, I …

Why Fitness is Important to Me

Why Fitness is Important to Me

Fitness should be important to everyone because it is truly the best form of self-care and the best thing you can do for your body, both mentally and physically! For me personally, fitness is important because I have seen not only an improvement in my own health, but I’ve also seen it dramatically improve my parents’ health. My dad has a heart condition called Afib, or Atrial Fibrillation, which is essentially an irregular or very rapid heartbeat, and my mom has had breast cancer. Being that Afib is hereditary and breast cancer is thought to potentially be hereditary, these are …

Autism is Not My Identity

Autism is Not My Identity

My name is Hannah Reen and I’m 22 years old. I’ve been with the Company for almost six months and work in the Savannah corporate office as the Multi-Media and Content Producer. I have autism. People often describe individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome as people who are on the “higher functioning” side of the spectrum. In relative comparison, that is true. Autism is a spectrum that includes different types, or “levels,” to categorize and appropriately identify a person. So, in a sense, I am “higher functioning” than others on the spectrum that deal with different cognitive development issues. However, at the …

Light It Up Blue

Light It Up Blue

Our days begin the same: early alarm, school clothes picked out, Fruity Pebbles or something similar, and then rushing out the door all the while forgetting to “style” his hair or some other morning crisis that we discover after pulling out of the driveway. The conversations on the way to school are usually endless about Pokémon, Minecraft, or the current video game of choice. The rare quiet mornings are because of late nights watching Star Wars or needing to finish our Lego War. While the “Ground Hog Day” feeling is ever present, the routine is very important. Rowan was diagnosed …

Touched by Autism

Touched by Autism

My name is Shelley Hotchkiss, and I am a District Director of Operations in St Louis, Missouri. I’ve just celebrated my one-year anniversary with our wonderful Company in March and I’m grateful for this opportunity to share another title I’m proud to hold: “Molly’s Mom.” Becoming a mom is hands-down the greatest thing I’ve ever done. My daughter, Molly, is the center of everything I do. She is my “Why.”  Molly was diagnosed with high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) when she was nine-years-old. Autism is rarely a single diagnosis; Molly also has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Anxiety and …

Women in Leadership: Why I Choose to Empower

Women in Leadership: Why I Choose to Empower

I was raised in a Lebanese and Mexican household with three brothers. Growing up, I felt suppressed and was told how women should act and what we can and cannot do. But since I am stubborn, outspoken, and strong-willed, I proved, not only to myself but to others, that the expectations the world has for women are not always right. By sharing a few of my accomplishments while working at the TMX Finance® Family of Companies, maybe I can inspire other women, girls, and -most importantly -my daughter to take action, work hard for what they want, keep their heads …

Find Your TMX Career Love Through Our Mission of Helping People

Find Your TMX Career Love Through Our Mission of Helping People

In 2014, I went into a local sandwich shop in San Antonio, TX. If you asked me today, I would tell you I never thought my craving for a sandwich would change my entire future. After paying for my sandwich, I headed to my car and a sign caught my eye. It read “$2,000, $3,000, $5,000.” At the time, I needed $2,500 to pay off some tickets in order to renew my driver’s license, and the job I was applying for required me to have a valid one; I was stuck with no options. I had gone to my bank …

Why You Should #LoveWhereYouWork

Why You Should #LoveWhereYouWork

When you begin a career journey, you aim to find a place that is going to be where you want to retire from. A career is separate from a job. A career is somewhere you can invest in the company and they will invest in you. Before I began my journey with TitleMax® I was a department manager at a local grocery store. I felt as if I had met my growth potential in my current role and wanted to expand into something I am more passionate about. I decided I wanted to work in the finance industry because I …
