The Girl Scouts of Colorado Fall Product Sale Program is a great money-earning activity for Girl Scouts, because it’s also a warm-up for the Girl Scout cookie sale. I do the Fall Sale because I really like to sell things. Also, I’m a natural business woman so I find selling stuff extremely gratifying. I also really love the challenge, because if it wasn’t challenging, it would be boring. Another reason is that I like the super cool prizes. My personal favorite animal representing the Fall Sale was the flamingo. My mom says it’s also a warm-up for the cookie mom.
Business is my greatest talent, and the Fall Sale is a really fun business. It raises money for Girl Scouts, and they use that money to do good things, like planning fun activities for troops to do. I really like the items up for sale, too. And it’s been a great chance for me to meet my neighbors. I have made some amazing friends.
The fantastic Fall Sale has allowed me to break out of my shell and not be shy. I also learned how to sell stuff without doing booth sales. Thank-you notes have also helped me bring back customers from last year. I personally think girls should do thank-you notes for sales more often. I also learned how to talk to strangers, and I’m not so shy anymore. The Fall Sale is great for all of these reasons and more.
