If there’s anything we’ve learned from Girl Scout Cookies, it’s that it really sharpens their entrepreneurship skills.
A scout named Charlotte recently found out that her father’s best friend is pretty well off, and makes good money. That got her wheels turning and Charlotte constructed an eloquent letter for her dad’s bestie.
Former Dirty Jobs host and now podcast personality Mike Rowe had this letter sent to him, as the little girl is actually his coworker’s daughter, and everyone was getting a good laugh out of it.
As Rowe read the letter, it was apparent that Charlotte’s main sales strategy was complete honesty. In the letter, she gave extremely honest reviews of each Girl Scout cookie, and pulled no punches. She even went as far as calling the Toffee-tastic flavor a “Bleak, flavorless, gluten-free wasteland.”
Yup, Charlotte said that the Girl Scouts sometimes use false advertising, and if she was going to get business from her dad’s rich friend, she was going to make sure he was getting the most honest review of her product.
The letter ended with, “My name is Charlotte and I love being honest with my clients.”
If that doesn’t make you want to buy a whole pallet of cookies from her, I don’t know what will.
