Hey, want a cookie?

So, you hungry for some thin mints?

If they were on your mind, yesterday was the day.  Yesterday in 1936, the Girl Scouts started commercially selling cookies in Philadelphia.  Originally, the cookies were sold individually in 1917 by the Mistletoe Group in Oklahoma, but the Philly team put a plan together that now has you craving and buying cookies of all kinds from co-workers, friends, family and from store fronts. That plan today generates over $800 Million annually.  

The Lesson:  If you’re persistent, you’ll get there, if you’re consistent you’ll stay there.
