Today we are sharing about Lesson 7 in our Journey Through The Code, sponsored by The Kingdom Code.

Here's our experience with LESSON ###:
















OUR REMARKS ABOUT ACTIVITIES IN THE LESSON THAT WE FOUND TO BE ENGAGING:

This lesson this time was all about making sales calls. It covered telephone, face-to-face, and written sales calls. The activity sheets on this lesson were packed with information and practice including filling out a calendar planning sheets and a written sales call letter as well as walking through how to do each of the other kinds of calls.

SUGGESTIONS, CHANGES, OR ADDITIONS MADE THAT WORKED PARTICULARLY WELL FOR OUR FAMILY:

I found this lesson to be very informative while also the most challenging for my quiet entrepreneur who prefers to avoid personal confrontations of any kind. We decided the written sales call was the most comfortable for us, though none of us feel good at closing a sale. I guess this will take practice.

I also found it interesting that my husband, who is a self-employed musician, is quite adept at all three types of sales calls and does them well, even in the hindsight and recovery from a medical emergency that occurred in May. I am now learning how to take over his sales contacts, and am discovering just how busy he was. But good at it. So, we will also be applying this Lesson #7 of the Kingdom Code Kids with our real-life service business that has been keeping our family afloat for more than a decade.

RECORDED OBSERVATIONS OF CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT, MONEY SKILLS, BIBLE KNOWLEDGE, LIFE SKILLS, SOCIAL SKILLS, OR POSITIVE BEHAVIORS EXHITIBED OR ACQUIRED BY MY CHILD THAT I DIRECTLY ATTRIBUTE TO THE KINGDOM CODE CURRICULUM:

The bonus activity that we found most useful was to look up the scripture from Philippians 4:13 and copy it ono a card.

It goes like this: I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO GIVES ME STRENGTH!


We were asked to have our child choose a viable business before the end of Lesson 2 and to complete the Treasure Builder Permit form.

The program emphasizes service businesses, even though we are free to choose a goods-related business instead. The reason they stress service is because business usually requires less money since a goods business requires purchasing supplies and figuring out costs for each item. Service teaches children the ability to please someone else in order to receive compensation. If you choose a goods business, many of the activities will have to be adapted and cost/sale price must be taught thoroughly so profitability is achieved.
