Epiphany

Recently I had an ephiphany while shopping at our local grocery store. It occurred to me that we as a society start teaching our children at a very young age how to become “sales people”.

Standing outside the front door was a group of young girls. Dressed in we clothes with a uniform underneath. On there sign it said, “Girl Scout Cookies For Sale”.

It was at that point I realized how young our children are when they begin to develop selling skills.

The Girl Scouts of Colorado start recruiting girls as young as four or five. These little girls were so cute standing there and asking if we wanted to buy some cookies.

It was at that moment I realized these little, innocent girls were being coached to push their products. Okay maybe “push” isn’t the right word.

Selling

It doesn’t matter what the product is, it’s the fact that at a young age our children are vulnerable to the art of selling.

Hindsight

My belief is that as long as adults are teaching their children to be honest and forthcoming in their business practice, children grow up to be great sales people and leaders.
