Press Rep Aliyah Shares Valuable Life Skills

Aliyah-new.jpgSelling Girl Scout cookies can teach a person many things. I have learned a number of techniques from selling Girl Scout cookies. It helped in areas such as marketing, managing money, safety, and setting goals.    
When selling cookies, there has to be a way for people to know cookies are being sold. A few ways are telling friends and asking them to spread the word, sending out emails, and making signs and putting the signs on a vehicle . These marketing techniques should help boost your cookie sale rate. 

The next skill that I learned was how to manage money. The biggest part of managing money is learning how to make a budget and stick to it. With this budget, you can plan out what different types of things you want to do with the profit that is made. 

 While I was preparing for Girl Scouts I learned about how to be a safe sales person. I learned to always go door to door with a buddy and adult, never give out any personal information like your last name or home address, and never go into a stranger's house. 

The last, and most important, part of being a successful sales person is setting goals. Setting goals help me focus on things that are important and to not lose focus. Setting goals and reaching them also gives me a happy feeling and tells me I can do anything if I put my mind to it. In the end, learning these techniques can take me very far in the future.
