Oh, yeah, people! Today is National Girl Scout Cookie Day, and if there was ever a reason to slip on your New Year’s diet resolution, this might be it.
Now, I HATED selling cookies as a kid, and I still hate selling pretty much anything as an adult. Things might be different for me today, however, if anyone had explained the value of learning how to sell.
And while I write this with my tongue partially planted in the side of my cheek, GSA is really serious about this: selling cookies is a great way to build five important foundational skills in girls:
- Money management
- People skills
- Business ethics.
All of this might well be true (and you can read more about this philosophy here
). But sometimes you just want to eat a cookie.

cooking finder app, or try the iPhone
