Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness

Submitted by: Marcelino Del Bosque, Store Manager, Phoenix, Arizona The Fourth of July is a day of independence and freedom. This is the day the original thirteen colonies claimed their independence from Great Britain by signing the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. This is a significant event because it led to the birth of the United States. In today’s modern society, we celebrate this historical event by watching the explosion of fireworks with friends, family, and those close to us. It is a day to appreciate how blessed each and every citizen of the United States is to …

Freedom, Family, and Sacrifice

Freedom, Family, and Sacrifice

Submitted by: Elisa Silva, Store Manager, Glendale, Arizona The 4th of July means freedom, family, and sacrifice to me. We have the freedom to live and grow as individuals. We have the freedom to become anything we set our sights on. We have these freedoms because of the sacrifices so many men and women have made for us for hundreds of years. Family – a strong unit that ties not only by blood, but by love and trust. The 4th of July is a time when you can spend time with family and forget the everyday hustle and bustle of …

July 4th Celebration in the Mountains

July 4th Celebration in the Mountains

Submitted by: Justine Faasse, General Manager, Nevada Growing up, the 4th of July created a lot of great family memories and now it’s a day I truly look forward to as it brings my whole family back together, allowing our kids the opportunity to gain the same memories. For us, the day begins with all the aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents meeting up. A lot of people come in from out of town to spend the holiday weekend together swimming and having family nights out. For the 4th of July in particular, we spend a good portion of the morning working together to get everything …

A Tennessee Family Retreat!

A Tennessee Family Retreat!

Submitted by: Michael Zuidema, District Director of Operations, Nashville, TN We all celebrate the independence of our country differently, as individuals, families, and organizations. I like to take time to reflect on what it means to me by thinking about the risk and ultimate sacrifice made by a few Americans over 240 years ago.  I do this by reading about our country’s founders and the struggles that led them to make the decisions that ultimately brought us, as Americans, to where we are today. This reflection is something I started a few years ago and it gives me a sense …

Submitted by: Thomas D. Bridgman II, District Director of Operations Irving, Texas To my family, July 4th is an important holiday. It is a time to reflect on our Nation and the many great people who have worked hard to make this Republic the great democracy that it is. We are very proud of this nation and celebrate its independence with fireworks, barbeque, and travel. We’ve taken some wonderful July 4th holiday trips over the years, but I’ve listed our four most favorite family vacation spots for you!   Stone Mountain, Georgia. We traveled to this suburb of Atlanta to watch their …

Family, Food, and Fun at the Beach!

Family, Food, and Fun at the Beach!

Submitted by: Gregory Ludwig, General Manager- TMX Certified Trainer   We are planning to spend our 4th of July the same way we do every year… relaxing with friends and family at Coligny Beach on Hilton Head Island. Every year, we get up early, pack up our grill, hot dogs, and sparklers then head out early to beat the beach crowd!     Luckily, this year we get to spend the day with a family friend who is an active Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Army and my father-in-law who served for 25 years in the U.S. Navy. Our family is proud of their service and we are honored to spend the day celebrating the freedoms they have sacrificed so much …

Red Nose Day!

Red Nose Day!

Submitted by: Theresa Doran, Senior Director of Corporate Operations  Were you helped by a team member wearing a red nose? We loved celebrating Red Nose Day and wore our red noses with pride! Here in the Contact Center at our Dallas corporate office and in our stores across the country, we wore our red noses to help change the lives of children in the United States and around the world living in poverty. We purchased our Red Noses at Walgreens to help the non-profit organization Comic Relief Inc. provide meals for kids, life-saving vaccines, and safe places for at-risk children …

Team Bielss for the Win on Father’s Day!

Team Bielss for the Win on Father’s Day!

A Special Post President, Mentor, Dad, Poppy- these are all the names that our Company President, Otto Bielss, goes by these days. We see him as our fearless leader, carrying us through the business day and setting a shining example of what it takes to succeed. His passion for the TMX Finance Family of Companies runs a very close second to the love he has for the ones who call him Dad and Poppy, and for that we are very lucky and happily concede to taking 2nd place. If you follow Otto on social media, you can easily see his …

A Father’s Love

A Father’s Love

Submitted by: Lionel Rutledge, Customer Service Representative  I have always considered myself a real “man’s man”. I was an Aviation Maintenance Administrator in the United States Navy and a damn fine Sailor. However, the day my daughter was born, all that “manliness” flew out the window with the first sight of my precious baby girl! These days, you’ll find me singing along each morning with The Little Einstein’s theme song, without any hesitation, just so I can see her smile! As you can probably tell from this picture, she has me wrapped around her little finger. I know it’s sad but …

Brick by Brick- How My Walls Came Down

Brick by Brick- How My Walls Came Down

Submitted by: Emily Wright, Credit Risk Analyst Being estranged from your biological father is not a pleasant situation, especially when the loss occurs during the emotional teenage years. You are constantly embroiled in an emotional tug-of-war; betrayal, disbelief, and resentment intermingling with the already boiling brain biology of a high school girl. The natural outlet of frustration falls unto the easiest target, which was mom’s new husband, William (or Top, which is what everyone calls him, after his grandfather). We were a stereotypical display of dysfunction. Top and my mother tried diligently to win my favor, and I vehemently denied …
