Teresa Meares of DGG Tactical and Uniform

“My experience is you receive more when you give. I learn more, I am encouraged more, I meet more people, I have more of a network and I have more capacity for understanding. These are just a few things I receive by volunteering my time, efforts and energy with the NAWBO National Board. Working with a group of smart, accomplished women offers many views and opinions, and it is such a learning experience for me. I have also been able to help other women with some of my experiences or knowledge, and it is great when you get that e-mail saying, ‘Thank you for your guidance. I was successful with your help.’ When I go back to my business after a meeting or conference with NAWBO, I am always so energized and determined; I leave with such a ‘can-do’ attitude. My co-workers usually have an extra cup of caffeine my first day back knowing I come back energized!” —Teresa Meares, President of DGG Tactical and Uniform Supply in Jacksonville, Florida
