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 …

National Mentoring Month: What Mentoring Means to Me

National Mentoring Month: What Mentoring Means to Me

Being a mentor gives me permission to examine my values and see how they align with those around me. When I first joined our Team Up Mentoring Program, I was excited to dive in and mentor one of my coworkers! My first mentee was a lovely person who was willing to talk big picture, but not quite interested in exploring things that are only revealed in the quiet, small places. We developed an understanding, but there were no “AH HA” moments. Similarly, my second mentee was a bit shy of professional relationships. So, it was very difficult for us to …

National Mentoring Month: What Mentoring Means to Me

National Mentoring Month:  What Mentoring Means to Me

Celebrating National Mentoring Month is special to me for a couple of reasons: First, as Senior Director of Corporate Talent Management, the TMX Finance® Family of Companies’ mentoring program – Team Up – is an area I now oversee. It is exciting to be a part of such a rewarding program and understand the importance of the relationships that are fostered as a result! I have participated as a mentee several times and have had some awesome mentors that have coached me through some difficult decisions and offered some really sage advice that has stuck with me far beyond my …

Celebrating el Día de los Reyes Magos

Celebrating el Día de los Reyes Magos

I love El Día de los Reyes Magos (Three Kings’ Day) because it is the last tamalada, the word we use for big parties that consist of making tamales, of the year. This has been a tradition in my family as far back as I remember. Growing up, my family celebrated el Día de los Reyes Magos by gathering at the house of one of the tías. As we got older, my sister and I hosted the Rosca de Reyes (Three Kings’ Bread) celebration. On this day, we buy a huge loaf of bread, in the shape of an oval …

Diwali – Festival of Lights

Diwali – Festival of Lights

Diwali is a time of grand celebration and great excitement as it is the largest festival celebrated across India. This auspicious festival celebrates “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance.” We feel Diwali is our Indian New Year. The festival date is determined by the Hindu calendar, so it changes every year and ranges anywhere from mid-October to November. This year, Diwali will be celebrated on November 4th. Based on Hindu mythology, Diwali commemorates the return of Rama, Sita, and Lakshman, three exiled deities from the city of Ayodhya, after their triumph over evil. To …

Hispanic Heritage Month: My Mexican History

Hispanic Heritage Month: My Mexican History

Celebrating culture at the TMX Finance® Family of Companies, and in general, is important because it gives us the opportunity to learn from other people, other countries, and other cultures. For me, Mexican culture is rich, colorful, and vibrant. My Mexican history includes influences from ancient civilizations such as the Aztecs and Mayans. My history is even influenced by European colonization; my great-grandfather was from Spain and my grandma used to tell me stories about how he came to Mexico. To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, I plan to talk about my culture with my co-workers and bring a dish to …

Hispanic Heritage Month: My Mexican Favorites

Hispanic Heritage Month: My Mexican Favorites

In the Hispanic culture there are many traditions that we uphold that are passed down from generation to generation. My family and I celebrate our Mexican culture by spending time together and sharing stories about their time in Mexico, the good and the bad. They tell us about our family that stayed behind, or have passed away, so we never forget them. I’m in love with our traditions as much as I’m in love with the food! Our food is a delicacy and there are many dishes that add a lot of variety to our meals. My favorite dish is …
