Try Vending Machines And Become Your Own Boss

Aug 18, 2007
Who doesn't want to be their own boss? A lot of people that venture into traditional small businesses find that they although they are not working for someone else, they become a slave to their own businesses. But with a vending machine business, there is staff to manage, no complicated budgets to manage, and no major investments. A vending machine practically runs itself and can grow as large as you choose simply by adding more vending machines to your route.

When you're not tied down to a strict schedule and calendars full of commitments, you become in control of your life rather than being controlled by your job. The boss is always one of the hardest working people in any company, even when you run your own. But with a vending machine business, the work you're doing is almost always directly tied to how much income you will personally be earning rather than hundreds of other administrative duties.

The responsibilities of a business owner

A vending machine business owner has several tasks. One is to restock and collect funds from their existing vending machines and gumball machines on their route. The owner might also spend a little time each week browsing the web for new candies, gums, and small toys with which to stock their vending machines.

Another important task of a vending machine owner is to find new locations to place vending machines. This is the exciting part of the business because the owner knows that with each new placement, his or her vending machine business will grow exponentially.

There are countless locations to place gumball machines. Don't brush off the idea because you believe the market is saturated. Creative and successful vending machine owners always find new locations for vending machines. There are new business buildings being constructed all the time. Furthermore, there are plenty of creative ways sell business owners on the idea of vending machines in to their shops and restaurants.

A vending machine business offers financial independence without the stress

There are plenty of vending machine business owners out there making a very comfortable living by spending just a few days a week working on their businesses. With the rest of their time, they are pursuing their hobbies, spending time with their families, traveling, or relaxing. A vending machine business virtually runs itself and offers little or no cause for stress.

While others who desire to be their own boss invest thousands or millions to get their companies running and profitable, a vending machine business can cost under $200 to get started. Depending on the location, a single head vending machine can make as much as $300 per month or as little as $1 per month. It just depends on where you place it. As the boss of your own company, you can be as strategic and creative as you can imagine when it comes to finding hotspots for your vending machines.

The choice to be your own boss is the choice to take your own life and your finances into your own hands. It's also a great family activity. An entrepreneurial mindset is a fantastic value to teach children about the basics of running a business. Best of all, when you are your own boss, you choose how much you'd like to work and how much you'd like to earn. The sky is the limit!
