Girl Scout Cookie Bosses Celebrate Women's Entrepreneurship Day



It's Women's Entrepreneurship Day (WED)! If you've never heard of it, WED is a global event that celebrates female entrepreneurs across 144 countries. The mission is to educate, empower, celebrate, and support women in business, and inspire girls to lead in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts & math) so they can positively impact their communities.

At Girl Scouts, we want to showcase and celebrate our cookie entrepreneurs and the impact the cookie program has had on their lives. We asked seven Cookie Bosses about their experience running the largest girl-led business in the world:

What skills have you learned to run a successful cookie business?



What have you learned from being a cookie entrepreneur?



What goal have you achieved from running your cookies business?



What three skills have you mastered from running your cookie business?



What lessons have you learned that apply to everyday life?



What advice would give new cookies entrepreneurs?



What advice would give girls about the Girl Scout Cookie Program?


As cookies bosses, Girl Scouts develop into confident leaders and contribute to their communities in impactful ways. From goal-setting, decision-making, money management, business ethics and people skills, cookie entrepreneurs learn essential life skills that set them up for a lifetime of success.

Whether it be collecting essential items for the homeless, creating education programs for senior citizens or transforming empty spaces at hospitals into vibrant game rooms, Girl Scouts across the country use their cookie earnings to make a difference—every day. Behind these amazing contributions is the G.I.R.L. spirit driving them to take action. This is exactly why investing in a girl is investing in the world—and all the more reason to celebrate women entrepreneurs!
