When the new year comes, so does Girl Scout Cookie Season.

The delicious, $5 boxes of cookies are available to consumers and help the next generation of young female entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to be successful – teamwork, planning, and a positive outlook. But, unless you frequently stop at grocery stores with cookie booths, many people miss out on Girl Scout Cookie season.

Essa Shamsan, (senior) has taken on the selfless responsibility of partnering with his Cadet Girl Scout sister Amani. Shamsan and Amani have worked together to drive her sales up by marketing to Del Campo Students. In the past three years, Shamsan has sold hundreds of boxes to students without taking a cut.

In an interview with Shamsan he let us in on some tactics for his sale performance and marketing, “I love selling it (cookies) because it helps my sister with her success in Girl Scouts and it allows me to interact with new people. The easy part is selling and getting the money but it is finding people to sell to that is the issue, so I try to be as personable and outgoing as possible to attract attention to the fact that I am selling cookies. So the best way to sell is to bring the cookies to school with me so that people see them, especially because I sell to teens and they love instant gratification which is why carrying the cookies is the best way to market.”

Shamsan has been the go to for Girl Scout Cookie needs, but he soon will be graduating. Who will be the next young entrepreneur to hold the legacy?
