Man, this hit the nail on the head 😳👇 So, let me get this straight... We teach our daughters to sell Girl Scout cookies in order to teach them important life and entrepreneurial skills. Parents believe in helping their daughters sell those boxes so much, that they often take to social media and their offices to sell those boxes. All money is surrendered to the Girl Scouts of America, and those monies stay with the organization. (This also applies to school fundraisers, sports fundraisers etc, I'm not calling out the Girl Scouts🍪🍪🍪) btw thank you for the yummy cookies.. and using them as an example because they are very impressive 🤤
Fast forward 15 years when those little girls grow up and want to sell products that will help them make a paycheck, we ridicule them? We say, "I'm tired of seeing that stuff on my social media feed! Get a REAL job!" You feel that she must be peddling a scam because she actually gets to keep the money that she worked for, rather than turn it in to a higher organization.
What are we teaching our daughters and sons??🤔 It's time to support others, to be kind and helpful, even if what they are doing to make a living isn't your ideal job. I have friends who are bakers, real estate agents, designers, etsy shop owners... When I see them post about their work, or their job, or their product (new house they are selling, a cake they are proud to have baked, a new design they are launching, or a new potholder they created for their etsy shop) I applaud them! I share their posts! I recommend customers to them!
Isn't that what we should all be doing? 🙌🏼💯👊🏼
