Personal finance is one of the most popular topics on this show, and in many of our previous episodes we’ve learned about the need to to diversify our income. Today we have side-hustle entrepreneur Matt Miller on the show. He has been a guest on the biggest podcasts out there, such as Pat Flynn (The Smart Passive Income Blog), John Lee Dumas (Entrepreneurs on Fire), and Jamie Masters Tardy (Eventual Millionaire).
Matt Miller is a husband and father of three who spent the majority of his life working for a W-2 job. Like most of us, any kind of work/life balance eluded Matt. He didn’t have much time with his family or as much income as he liked, so he decided to develop a side hustle by embarking on a business that is often overlooked – vending machines. He now lives life on his own terms and helps others do the same.
Matt Miller spent the first nine years of his career as an Air Force pilot before entering the corporate world. While a top performer for both companies, his long-term desire was to start a business and be his own boss.
A good friend one day mentioned the gumball machines he and his young daughters owned, and that conversation began a ten-year business quest that resulted in the creation and subsequent growth of School Spirit Vending.
Over the years, Matt’s diligent effort and entrepreneurial expertise has brought School Spirit Vending to the cutting edge of both the vending and school fundraising industries by combining these two ventures into one. At the same time, he has created an impressive stream of passive income that gives him the freedom, money, and time he always wanted.
Matt is devoted to sharing his expertise with others. Through many different venues, including podcasts and public speaking, Matt seeks to enable other entrepreneurs to chase their dreams as well.
