Resources and Information

Adopt an Entrepreneurial Mindset

An entrepreneur uses creativity and imagination to figure out new, innovative ways to solve problems, evolve ideas and methods, or build a business to meet those needs.  Every girl can benefit, maybe even discover what she’s passionate about, by learning to think like an entrepreneur:

  • Be curious
  • Embrace challenge
  • Take initiative
  • Collaborate with others
  • Take creative risks
  • See failing as learning
  • Adapt to change

Take a Closer Look!

Juliette (Individually Registered Girl Scout) Participation

  • Juliettes are eligible to earn all the same rewards as girls participating in troops.
  • Juliettes earn proceeds in tiered amounts based on bands of total packages sold. Proceeds are issued on Reward Cards to power their Girl Scout experience.
  • Caregiver acts as the Juliette volunteer in eBudde, the Cookie Program’s inventory and money management system.

Safety Guidance

Girls and adults should adhere to all GSNorCal COVID-19 Guidance prior to engaging in product deliveries and/or marketing material distribution. We recommend all customer purchases be transacted through girls' online shops, ensuring minimal-contact financial transactions. Should a girl and adult choose to accept cash or check as payment tender in rare circumstances, we recommend appropriate safety precautions be taken. We also encourage parents to deposit these physical payments into their personal account then electronically transfer the funds to their troop volunteer in order to reduce touchpoints.
