BECOMING AN ENTREPRENEUR:
The long cherished notion of getting a job that would provide both long term
security and benefits is close to disappearing in the American workplace. It is no
surprise that more people today want to do "their own thing". Vending is one of
the final frontiers. Since you are considering starting a business, you belong to a large
and growing group of people frustrated with their present jobs. The word entrepreneur is a
French word meaning 'enterpriser'. It is best described as a person who sees an
opportunity in the marketplace and decides to take advantage of it. He or she gathers the
material and markets this vending service to fill a need of the customers.
PLAN YOUR WORK AND WORK YOUR PLAN!
The forty hour work week became the standard in this country during the 1930's. It
is interesting when we observe that entrepreneurs work an average of sixty hours per week
and still report to be happier than the average employee working 1/3 fewer hours. How can
this be true? People are happier in their work if they have control over what they do.
Happy people are also healthier people, and there is no better time than now to start a
change in your life and put yourself in control of your own destiny.
Choose machines that are:
reliable, easy to service, easy to locate, caters to the people on location (products that
they want), and gives you an outstanding return on your investment.
VEND TRENDS-FACTS AND FIGURES:
The name of the game is financial success and Independence with
department of commerce study revealed that fewer than 5% of new vending companies fail
each month, compared with a 65% failure rate by the Small Business Administration, for
independent, new business start up. Vending can be a very profitable business!
2) The main motivation for getting into any business is
“money”. The only common aspect of every business is money. That is what
business is all about. Vending allows a person to invest 10 to 20 hours per month
and get a return on money invested 100% to 200% in the first year. This is 10 times
what they would get at a bank with a CD or Money Market account.
3) Money follows financial independence. Vending allows 95% of
start-up to go for machines and product. Your home can be your office. This
allows lots of possible tax write-offs that other people never receive.
4) 70% of vendors start off on a part time basis, keeping a full time
job, and checking their machines and servicing them after work or on weekends. This allows
their money to work for them while they keep their present jobs. 85% of them turn to
full time vending after two years. Money does allow freedom. We might wish that our
economic system operated differently, but it doesn't. Having money or not having
it largely controls what we do in our lives. Vending can give you that

"I was looking for a hobby to get into which would bring in some extra income.
Vending looked like a good idea. I bought the
start-up kit and last winter and it has been a very valuable tool in helping
me to establish routes and negotiating
other issues which I never would have even imagined, such as inventory and
cash control systems. Thanks to the author for putting together this much needed
publication." -----Vending Entrepreneur from Hoboken, NJ
"Once in a great while, I find a product that meets or exceeds its advertising
promises. Your handbook, The Vending Start Up-Kit, is one of those. Your information is
concise, easy to read and up-to date. I especially like the plastic sheet protectors that
keep the pages neat and free from damage. I have limited vending experience and few
contacts in the industry, so you kit has been very helpful in finding resources for
products and information. I am certain that I have saved thousands of dollars in mistakes
by reading your handbook. Thank you very much for your interest in my success!"
"The majority of the people who will become financially independent in the next 10
years won't do it through real estate or inheritance. They will do it by starting their
own business." -----The Wall Street Journal
