Business is different y'all. It's unlike anything else. As long time consumers for some reason we just don't understand that all spending is not created equal. Usually we spend thousands on something like a used car or a vacation and at then when we are done with it, what we paid for is worth nothing. With business that is not the case!
About two years ago we bought a vending route using the exact strategy I outline in the course below. We ran the vending route, paid off the debt on the route (seller financed) and continued to run the route.
Then the pandemic hit. Locations got shut down and it just wasn't fun anymore.
Plus I had so many other really cool things going on that I didn't really need the vending money anymore.
Even though I didn't need the income though, the machines, and the locations were worth tremendous value to someone who did have the time and desire to run it.
A large part of the struggle was just the distance to the locations. So it is also a win for someone who doesn't live an hour away from the machines.
I put some feelers out on IG and found a buyer. Someone who had already bought my vending course. He wanted to expand his personal route so he could be fully job free. For me I saw this as a win win.
The win is that, the money we paid for the route we can get back! So we bought it, cash flowed it and we get our money back at the end. Another is I get to help another black professional succeed in business.
Other cultures do this ALL THE TIME. While we think business is a struggle they know that they can just chip off pieces of their business to give the next man a leg up.
So the key is that 1) Own something that has salvage value equal to or greater than the purchase price 2) Become so big that you can help others without decreasing your lifestyle!
For all of us this is a huge win so I want to make sure we give back. For the next 20 people grab the vending course, the same course that helped this brother get started and grow for just $30!!!!
