A recent news article of a homeless girl that has sold as many as 6,000 boxes of girl scout cookies has become a big deal in NYC. This type of tenacity should motivate anyone. It should especially be something that is motivation to of the Girl Scouts that may complain about standing in front of a store or sitting in a chair to sell a couple of boxes for a couple of hours.
There are a lot of Girl Scout Troops that are in homeless shelters, and they want to do something productive with their time. They do not want to dwell on the fact that they do not have homes. This is a great way for them to become productive and much more involved with something that is going to keep them out of trouble.
The fact that this young girl was able to sell 6000 boxes is no small accomplishment. It is a big thing because it represents a strong sales person inside of this small child. She may be young now, but this is something that can easily be a mark on her resume for the future. She could become an excellent salesman if she has the ability to keep her eyes open for people that are interested in the products that she is selling. She definitely has the ability to create a lot of wealth for herself as an adult if she is able to sell products like this when she is older.
Some people that see this story may look at this and simply say that it is the mentality of a New Yorker. Even though she is young the ability to sell and get the word out about these cookies it is something that resonates with people that are part of the New York Community. They tend to be residents that do not take no for an answer when it comes to selling products. This is why New York is known as the city that never sleeps. This is also the reason why it is a place where people go when they want to accomplish their dreams and become famous. New York is the place where people make their mark. Sometimes these people are entertainers. At other times they are homeless Girl Scouts.
