You can do a little more and ask your friends and family to purchase nut/snack products, magazines or photo keepsakes either online or through the paper catalog in your sales envelope.

And don't forget to use your business cards, also in your sales envelope. Customers can go online and purchase when it's convenient for them. They pay with a credit card and have their purchases shipped right to them.

Whatever you decide to do, you'll be supporting your Troop and earning great rewards for yourself!

What are the Five Skills and how can they help me in the future?

Goal Setting - Girls learn how to set goals and meet deadlines.

Decision Making - Girl Scouting teaches girls how to use research to develop a plan and work as a team.

Money Management - Girls learn to make change, plan and budget their funds.

People Skills - Girls gain confidence learning how to deal with different types of people.

Business Ethics - Girl Scouting teaches girls to be honest, trustworthy and reliable.

Girls who have learned these skills will be poised for success in their personal and professional life.  Employers look for candidates who have abilities in these areas.
