Girl Scout Cookies

If you are like me, you have to control yourself this time of year. I love Girl Scout cookies and they can easily cost me a lot of money. The cookies are delicious and I've been told that the money helps pay for their Scouting activities, so it is easily justified in my mind. 
This year I did something different. I read the stuff printed on the box. I was confused when I read this side. 
It states that "Selling Girl Scout Cookies helps girls develop 5 skills that they use throughout their lives". The part that I'm confused by is that this year like most I have purchased 6 boxes of cookies and haven't yet had a transaction involving a Girl Scout. It is almost always their parent or leader doing the selling. How does this help the Girl Scout learn "Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills, or Business Ethics"? 
This might completely change who I'm buying Girl Scout Cookies from. 
If you are involved in Girl Scouts please clear this up for me.
