Matt Miller is the founder of School Spirit Vending. He graduated from the United States Air Force Academy in 1989 and was an Air Force pilot for 9 years. Post-military, Matt worked in both the medical and advertising fields as a top performer.
Matt's long-term desire was to start a business to build a lifestyle based on freedom and choice. A conversation with a good friend led him on a 10-year business quest that has brought Matt's franchising company to the cutting edge of both the vending and school fundraising industries. Starting with an investment of $100 he has built School Spirit Vending into a multi-million dollar vending business.
Matt's business thoughts:
- One of the best decisions he made was to hire a coach who helped him see the value in networking and the relationship side of things.
- The speed of the group is determined by the speed of the leader and if the leader's not growing, the team’s not growing.
- When we’re at the top of the mountain we’re not growing because we think we know it all. In the valley is where all the growth and learning occurs.
