Little Entrepreneur in Training
About 2 years ago, my daughter asked to join Girl Scouts. I thought that was the cutest thing ever because it was something that she came up with on her own. My guess is she was watching something on TV about it because I have never brought it up before. Therefore, I had to do a little bit of research on what Girls Scouts actually was because just selling cookies is not something I settle for personally. Madison goes on to tell me she wants to be in Girls Scouts because they do things in nature. I was sold after that, so she joined a daisy troop and we joined after the cookie season so I was excited about that. However, the next year Madison was ready to sell cookies but I wasn’t. I’m thinking, “yeah I’m a personal trainer selling Girls Scout cookies,” that just goes against everything I stand for. However, this was the first time Madison and I started talking about money. She started getting the concept about selling a product and receiving money. Girl Scouts has given her an opportunity to learn how to speak up and work for what she wants. This season Madison joined a new brownies troop. I look forward to the cookie selling time because it gives my daughter a look at what it takes to be an entrepreneur, counting money for her business. Selling cookies is her first business and Girl Scouts is her platform to help her become a little entrepreneur in training.
