Powered by the Girl Scout Cookie Program: Accomplishing BIG GOALS

“Last cookie season I earned the 4,000 box reward, a trip to Savannah, Georgia. I went over the summer with my mother and had a lot of fun. While there, I visited the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, the Gingerbread House, the Savannah Botanical Gardens and all 22 Squares in Savannah. I learned many new facts there too like, Savannah is one of the most haunted cities in the U.S. I had a great time and would love to go back!” - Isabella I. Troop 2185

Isabella has been GSNC’s top seller for 4 years in a row and she’s already set her goal so she can earn the top reward again this year—a trip to Niagara Falls! Will you be joining her?
It takes a lot of effort to sell so many boxes of Cookies, but Isabella is a real entrepreneurial G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker and Leader)TM. In 2017 she worked hard with her Leader and Troop Cookie Manager to not only reach her own goals, but to support the Five Skills (Goal Setting, Decision Making, People Skills, Money Management and Business Ethics) of the rest of her Troop members. One of the girls in her Troop sold over 2000 boxes and two additional girls sold over 1000 boxes!

How did they do it? One reason can be attributed to over 75 booth sales—most of them outdoors! The booth sales and other successful girl-led sales tips (Door-to-door selling, online sales, social networking, telephone sales, and workplace sales) require lots of support from parents and the other adults in your Troop. You really need to be a go-getter to be a goal-getter!
