I'm happily married to an awesome man, and a stay-at-home mom to two fabulous children. Staying home with my kids is amazing, but it's also very draining - physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and financially! In September of 2013, I had been looking for a way to supplement our family's income, not to mention a way to get some much-needed "me time." Because, let's face it, even though I love spending time with my kids, they're also the reason why I drink! LOL! Anyway, I couldn't really find anything that provided me the flexibility to be home with the kids most of the time, and still bring in a decent amount of money, not to mention provide a social outlet. I had thought about other direct sales companies, but I knew that I just wasn't passionate enough of about any of the products that they were offering to do well at marketing them. Then, I learned about The Traveling Vineyard, and everything changed! Now, I get to share my passion for wine and food with others, and make a fantastic living doing it! I'm completely in control of how many hours that I work each week, so I still get to spend plenty of quality time with my family. I can work as little or as much as I like without worrying about any monthly minimum sales quotas! Plus, I get to drink great wine and make new friends every weekend, and get recognized for doing it! In just one short year, I was named a Budding Superstar, have promoted to a 3-star leader, was Third Runner-Up for Top Rookie Volume in the company, and earned an all-expenses-paid trip to Aruba! Plus, I've made countless friendships with my hosts, guests, and fellow wine guides, all because of our love of wine. I LOVE MY JOB!!!!
