Even the most established corporate businessman could learn some valuable sales lessons from the Girl Scouts. The Girl Scouts have been selling their cookies since 1917 and in 2010 alone they had over $714 million in cookie sales revenue. Beginning as a cookie drive in a Muskogee, Okla., high school cafeteria, the business of selling cookies has blossomed into a multimillion dollar enterprise for the Girl Scouts. Girl Scout cookies are now big business.
People don’t buy Girl Scout Cookies just to help out a youth organization — these cookies get purchased by so many people because they are just plain good. Girl Scout Thin Mints are beloved by Americans, and they are probably the most popular cookie in the world. Over 56,000,000,00 calories were consumed in Thin Mints alone last year.
Many outstanding women in both the political and business got their initial business training from selling Girl Scout Cookies.
