Perseverance Pays Off: the Story of Andrea, a Girl Scout Cookie Superstar
It was a race to the finish for Girl Scout Andrea. Her goal of 1,000 boxes last year seemed just out of reach when she had sold 990 boxes and hit a selling wall. Those last 10 boxes were her biggest obstacle, but she was persistent and dedicated and ultimately made her goal. Letting customers know about your goal can help boost your cookie sales. When asked about what motivated her to be a 1000+ club member she said, “I always strive to reach the goal with the most prizes.”
Andrea said she didn’t really have a secret to selling, just getting the word out is the key. “The cookies sell themselves. People really want Girl Scout cookies, you just have to let them know you have them available,” she said. “I just had to work on reaching more people.”
With the profits from the Cookie sale, Andrea’s troop took a trip to Hershey Park. “We had a blast!” she said.
For this year’s cookie sale, Andrea has doubled her goal to 2,000 boxes and said she can’t wait to be in the 1,000 Plus Club again. Will you join her?
