The Girl Scout Cookie Program is much more than a fundraiser. It's a fun way for girls of all ages to earn the money that fuels their dreams. And it's a powerful, hands-on leadership and entrepreneurial program.
Follow the Five Steps to Cookie Success:
Step 1 — Set and Share Team Goals
Help girls select two goals that inspire them – one for fun and learning and one for making the world a better place.
Step 2 — Set Personal Goals
Be sure to remind girls that achieving a team goal requires that every person achieve her personal goal. What would she like to learn along the way?
Step 3 — Hold a Family Meeting
Adults need to understand the importance of an activity before they give it their full support. Engaging families encourages them to be involved.
Step 4 — Sell Beyond Family and Friends
People love Girl Scout Cookies and are generally predisposed to buying them. Many women say their first business success was getting a "yes" from an unknown customer. Encourage your girls to market beyond people they know.
Step 5 — Track Your Progress and Celebrate Your Success!
Using a Goal Tracker to watch sales grow keeps everyone focused on the goal. When girls reach their goal, remember to celebrate.
