To round out our fabulous Women’s History Month, we are featuring women who are their own bosses and brought their ideas to life, through entrepreneurship. Many times in history, women had to fight to show they were worthy of having a seat at the table, and for these historic women in entrepreneurship, that was certainly the case! They say those who are crazy enough to believe they can make it are the ones that do, what’s something you are crazy enough to believe you can do? How can your skills developed during the cookie program help you to reach your goals? 

March 25th: Social Media 

Last but certainly not least, we are highlighting all the women who have forged their own way in the field of entrepreneurship! We know all of our cookie-selling Girl Scouts are already running their own business, but maybe you have another small business or have an idea for one! Share your girl-run business or your dreams for entrepreneurship by using the hashtag #GSbusinesswomen 

March 26th: In Her Own Words 

In her 2016 TED Talk, Reshma Sujani, founder of Girls Who Code, said, “I need each of you to tell every young woman you know to be comfortable with imperfection.” How can you practice being comfortable with imperfection?

March 27th: Just for You 

This challenge is just for you: Mindset is a crucial factor to success. Take some time today to check in with yourself. Divide a sheet of paper into four and number each section with 1-10. Take a few minutes to fill in the following lists: 

  • 10 things I like about myself 
  • 10 things other people like about me 
  • 10 things about myself I wish were true 
  • 10 things I could do tomorrow to make the world a better place 

March 28th: Deep Dive into Entrepreneurship 

Advancing in one’s career can look different from industry to industry! If you’re looking for a different story about a ballerina pursuing her dreams, we recommend “A Ballerina’s Tale”. This movie tells the incredible story of Misty Copeland, and how she fearlessly pursued her dreams of becoming a principal dancer for New York’s American Ballet Theater. If you’re looking to celebrate a local legend, the movie “Coal Miner’s Daughter” celebrates the remarkable work of Loretta Lynn.  

Our book recommendations for this week include When Grandma Gives You a Lemon Tree by Jamie Deenihan and Lorraine Rocha (Daisy), Craftily Ever After: Breaking the Piggy Bank by Martha Maker and Xindi Yan (Brownie), Bee Fearless: Dream Like a Kid by Mikaila Ulmer (Junior), and Madam CJ Walker Builds a Business by Rebel Girls and Salini Perera (Cadette, Senior and Ambassador).
