Default 8 Yr Old GirlScout Sells $80K of Cookies By Changing Her STORY

Happy Holidays,

8 year old Markita Andrews in NYC wanted to travel the world.

The Grand Prize - offered by the GirlScouts - was a F-r-e-e Trip Around
the world for Marketa and her Mom.

So in the ONE MONTH that girl scout cookies are sold - Markita went dr to dr
after school and sold 3,526 Boxes of cookies with this story...

Knock Knock. "Hi, I have a Dream. I'm earning a Trip Around the world for
me and my Mom by selling GirlScout Cookies. Would you Like to invest in 1
dozen or 2 dozen cookies?"


#1 - Good Story. But this is not the WHOLE STORY.
I Read Markita's book and Got her Audiotape Program.

A - Markita only had a couple hrs after school to sell in

B - After she won her world trip she s old cookies for 4 more years

C - AND only 30 days is allowed within which to sell cookies (Probably cuz Parents and neighbors Complain if they did it 365 days a yr)

Here's what I Remember
Markita saying she did to sell the REST of the 80.000.00 of cookies over 5 yrs.

(The 2 More Recent girls who sold More - worked 40 hrs a week at Subway Escalators and Bus Stops. Markita Worked Very Little but Sold a Lot. And I KNOW Markita's Sales System Works. I use it constantly.)

FIRST - She had her Mom drive her to Huge Hi-Rise Buildings After School.

2nd - Markita piled Cookie Boxes around her in the Lobby. (With an OK from the building manager.)

3rd - She had to Change what she said...(She DID put her 30 day sales Goal
into her pitch.)

"Hi, I'm raising $17,000.00 for the GirlScouts. Can You Write me a Check? (LONG PAUSE - Prospect looks STUNNED) "Well, if you can't afford 17,000.00
How Many Cases of Cookies do you want?"

***Then while they're counting munny. Or writing a check. She talks about
winning the cookie contest and flying around the world.


Markita was invited to speak at sales meetings. HOW DID SHE SELL COOKIES During a Speech?

Markita told the members of the "Million Dollar Real Estate Round Table" -

"And to Sum Up - Since all of you have to be millionaires to be here at this meeting, I put 2 dozen Boxes of cookies under each chair. You can't say you
can't afford it. And it's for a good cause. I take cash, check or money
orders. Thank you Very Much."

All the salespeople in the room laughed. Standing Ovation.
