055: Coached to Freedom with Matt Miller

In this episode, I interview, Matt Miller.


Matt Miller spent the first 9 years of his career as an Air Force pilot, before entering the private sector to work in both the medical device and advertising industries. While a top performer in the corporate world, his long term desire was to be his own boss. A good friend one day mentioned the gum ball machines he and his young daughters owned, and that conversation began a 10 year business quest that has brought Matt’s company, School Spirit Vending, to the cutting edge of both the vending and school fundraising industries. Today, School Spirit Vending’s franchising program provides a proven and profitable business system for busy professionals and their families looking to develop secondary income streams with a limited time commitment. 

  • Noted expert in the vending and school fundraising industries
  • Successfully transitioned from 20 years in the military and the corporate world to run multiple successful businesses 
  • Married with 3 kids and lives in rural TX 
  • Host of School Zone Podcast

My Takeaways:

Mentorship. Matt spoke a lot about mentorship and coaching which were pivotal to him and his success (his definition of success = control of time and money). I also really liked when I asked how he balanced it all, and he said he didn’t, however, that was an intention that he and his family put out there at first. The intention to lead them to success.
