I took a lot of heat from my family and friends this year based on the amount of Girl Scout Cookies I purchased. Maybe its sheer volume or maybe because they know I dont actually plan to eat them. Perhaps I can share my reason why.
Selling Girl Scout Cookies door to door in the mid 1970s in Lake Oswego, Oregon was my first sales job. It later led to what some might consider a successful career in sales.
I see myself in those girls I purchased cookies from. From my perspective, I get a very big return on my investment. Doesn’t every young girl deserve the opportunity to develop self confidence and self esteem? I think so!
