Are we ready to support Zoe and her friends for Girl Scout Cookie Weekend? I sure am! She’s not afraid and she’s ready to take the world by a storm. This week we’ll talk about why and how to support Zoe and the Girl Scouts. We’ll then add a little twist by serving up some helpful information on Internet cookies as well. All around, this will be a delicious newsletter with a purpose, which is often what I’m going for. Let’s dive in!
Did you know Girl Scouts is the biggest woman-led entrepreneurial program in the world? Supporting Zoe and her friends teaches them important life and leadership skills like creating budgets, keeping records, interacting with customers, and taking orders. In a world lacking support for women entrepreneurship, this is a big enough reason to go out there and buy some Girl Scout Cookies this weekend. Girl Scouts of America is also one of the most efficient non-profit programs out there. I recommend buying Girl Scout Cookies directly from a local Girl Scout as this helps them gain the most confidence. Here is how to find a local Girl Scout booth.
Whether we are talking about Girl Scouts or the Internet, both cookies serve a great purpose. As long as you brush your teeth and have good security software on your computer, cookies (in moderation) are a good thing!
Stay sweet until next week,
– Burak Sarac, Team Lead
