Welcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast! This episode is meant to be a very special treat for you. It’s something a bit different, but worth considering. Today’s special guest is Matt Miller, who is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. He was an air force pilot for nine years. Post military, Matt worked in both medical and advertising fields, as a top performer. His long-term desire was to start a business, probably a lot like you, and to build a lifestyle based on freedom and choice. During a conversation with a good friend, that actually led him into a 10-year business quest that has brought Matt’s franchising company to the cutting edge of both vending and school fundraising industries. Starting with just a teeny-tiny seed of $100, he has built a “school spirit” vending machine company into a multi-million dollar vending business.
Promise: How to Build a Profitable Secondary Income Stream by Using Vending Machines
Thanks, first off, for having me on. I really appreciate being here. The big promise is:

is a good friend of mine, and this started with a blog a few years ago which talked about creating information products online. My challenge was, I have a very, very simple mindset, and the whole internet thing still just blows my mind, when I try to think about it. I needed to do something that would allow me to make money immediately, not on down the road.
So, I had a good buddy at church who mentioned gum ball machines, and I got to thinking about it, and I was like, “You know what? It’s going to take a lot of gum balls for me to get where I want to go financially,” but those gum balls have over a 1,000% markup, so the margins are huge, and the machines do all the selling while you’re not there. So, I started, literally, with a $36 used gum ball machine from a guy that I found on Ebay, across Houston, where we lived at the time. That’s where and how I started this business.

I wrote a short eBook several years ago, called Live Your Dreams: The Top 10 Reasons Why You Need to Own a Vending Business
. It just shares a little bit of insight that most professionals have never even thought of in relation to vending. We’ve set up a landing page specifically for you. You can go to SSVBusiness.com/fastresults
and download that for free. At a minimum, you’ll learn a little more about just general vending. If you want to talk about the franchise, we can do that too. I hope, if nothing else, this gets you thinking about some other avenues that have been in front of all of us, all of our lives, but many of us, for whatever reason, have never considered. This has changed my life and that of many of the other people that I work with today.
