Tristan is in Cub Scouts, and just finished up selling popcorn for his Pack. He had to get orders (not set at a booth and sell), so that meant going door-to-door and interacting with people - most of them strangers. Yes, hubby and I helped out...I contacted family all over the place, hubby took a form to work. But still, Tristan had to do his own share and sell some.
Sunday, hubby took him a couple streets over to begin selling. I wrote out a little card for him so he could remember what to say; "Hi. My name is Tristan B-. I am selling popcorn to raise money for the Boy Scouts. Would you like to buy some popcorn?" After a few houses, he had it down pat. Hubby said he was like a little champ, giving all the information people asked for, being gracious when they declined, and using his manners when he would leave. They were out for about 90mins, and got roughly 20 orders.
But he didn't stop there!! We had to turn in the forms yesterday, but there were still some empty spots on one of the forms. Heaven forbid that ever happen! ;) So, off we go around our housing area. This time, he stuck mainly to his friends' houses, but he managed to get another 8 orders! And since hubby was at work, I got to see first-hand how he did. He was phenomenal!!!!!!! Yes, I had to remind him to speak louder and speak slower so people could understand him, but he knew what he was doing without a doubt!!
When all was said and done, he ended up with 54 people buying which gave him roughly $760 in orders.....his den leader says that he is one of, if not THE, top seller!!! He'll even get a badge out of this for the amount that he sold! I am so proud of him!!!
