Addressing more than 600 high school Girl Scouts, Swartz offered advice and shared her own story of selling cookies as a young Brownie in her home state of Texas - her first successful business experience. 

Swartz also participated in a mentoring session with the participating Girl Scouts to offer guidance and answer questions about her career path. 

The event is part of a national effort by Girl Scouts to address the confidence gaps today’s girls face, the Girl Scouts said.
