She's only being honest about them
I’ll let Mike Rowe preface this article by giving his opinion on the young, articulate writer of the aforementioned review: “I know a lot of people in a lot of Fortune 500 Companies, and I’m going to recommend that Charlotte to rewrite their sales manual because this kid understands the basic tenants of sales. You can’t sell a product unless people first trust you, and the best way to get them to trust you is to tell them the truth.”
And that’s exactly what this young lady did when she heard that a wealthy guy might be interested in purchasing a few boxes of her Girl Scout Cookies. She wanted to get a big sale out of him, and she knew that she had better be honest with him about the way those cookies tasted, even if it meant calling them a “bleak, flavorless, gluten-free wasteland.”
The Important Letter
TV host Mike Rowe, who you probably know best from shows like Dirty Jobs, was given a letter from his friend, Sean, that was penned by his daughter, a young Girl Scout named Charlotte. This girl wanted to get her opinions on all of the Girl Scout Cookies out, and Mike was happy to do it for her.
Quite the Saleswoman
“If there’s a Girl Scout in your life, you’ve already been hit up for cookies,” says Mike before he begins reading Charlotte’s letter. As she was in the throes of selling the cookies, Sean told his daughter that one of his friends was “very rich,” then he found that Charlotte wrote the man the letter to better explain her wares and emailed it to him.
Dear Mr. Michelson
As Mike reads the letter that Charlotte wrote, we learn that this 11-year-old girl is extremely intelligent; not only did she see an opportunity to sell a lot of cookies to someone who could afford it, she seized the moment and wrote an eloquent review of the cookies so that he could be completely happy with his purchase.
You can watch Mike read her letter next!
