Research shows that girls are actively interested in becoming entrepreneurs, developing financially stable futures, and using their skills to make a big impact on the world.
But there are stumbling blocks on a girl’s path, including fear of failure, concerns about bringing big ideas to life, and the perception that men are more likely to be entrepreneurs than women. While entrepreneurship may not be right for every girl, every Girl Scout will benefit, and maybe even discover a future career path, by learning to think like an entrepreneur.
As an important part of learning vital business skills, girls will:
Discover how to set and achieve realistic goals in their lives and future careers
Make better decisions and build stronger interpersonal skills
Develop a valuable work ethic and a sense of empathy for others
