Tips from Scoutmaster Al:
Remember some of the safety rules about selling popcorn:
1. Don’t sell alone.
2. Don’t go into their house – stand at the door.
3. Be courteous. Don’t cut across people’s yards or through the bushes. Stay on the sidewalk.
4. Be polite and don’t be too disappointed if they say no. 70% of the people that you talk to will say YES.
5. Don’t carry all of your money with you, keep most of it at home as you sell. Just carry enough to make change.
it is awful hard to sell popcorn sitting home playing on the Wii or
doing Facebook on the computer. Get out and ask, call relatives
if it is a rainy night. When you go out a second time, go to the
houses in your neighborhood that weren’t home the first time.
Have Mom or Dad or whoever you go with keep track of who wasn’t
home. It will be easier that way.
If you have any questions, please ask me or Mr. Richgels.
is a good time to remember the 4th point in the scout law –
friendly. Being Friendly when selling popcorn will help you
achieve your goals.
