Popcorn – Michael Beck Training Aug 27, 6pm John McIntire Library

Attention Scouters,
Please try to have representation at the upcoming Michael Beck Popcorn sales training seminar. This dynamic approach to popcorn sales will have a great impact on your unit’s sales.

It will be held at the John McIntire Branch of the Muskingum County Library on Wednesday, August 27th beginning at 6:00pm. The library is located at 220 N 5th St, Zanesville, OH 43701.

Here is what some other leaders have to say about this trining:

“I was the only one from my district to attend Mike Beck’s excellent presentation. Our Pack sold over $10,570 this year, the first time ever to reach the $10,000 mark.” – “And, my son who is not naturally very out-going is a lot more relaxed in public now. They both come home feeling very good every time we go out to sell. It’s a great confidence builder.” – Bob Mueller Pack 532, Choptank District

“We were all a bit leery of doing the Show and Sell this year, but I put in the order and we ran with it. I am very excited to tell you that in three Show and Sell dates we have sold $4313.51!!! Our entire Pack last year only did Take Orders, and our grand total was $2774. This looks to be a fantastic year for popcorn! Thanks for all of your help in making this a really great popcorn season for us!” – Tanya, Columbia, SC

Come find out what all of the excitement is about! We hope to see YOU there
