    When I decided to become a wine guide, I was a brand new mom. Traveling Vineyard was an opportunity for me to meet new people, make some extra money, and learn more about wine. Two years later, I have found that it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made! I've become part of such a wonderful community and have made so many amazing friendships. I can't wait to see what the next two years bring.

    Not being much of a home party sort of gal, I was hesitant to host a TV wine tasting. I had different parties before and found it stressful trying to get friends together for direct sales parties. There was an acquaintance in town who was so passionate about this business she couldn't stop talking about it and convinced me to host an event. I couldn't believe it when my friends actually RSVPd and showed up! Their response? Of course I'm coming, it's WINE! I had recently become an empty nester when my last child, my daughter, went off to college. I found myself having way to much time on my hands and staying at home way too much with no activities to fill my days. My friends had a blast at my event and were so excited to host their own events. With four friends booking events from my tasting, I knew I could earn my money back pretty quickly. Although it wasn't about money for me, budget was something I really had a tight hold on and needed to be certain I could at least earn my cost back. I was excited to get out, meet new people and come out of my shell in an adult world after being happily involved in parenting duties for so long. I held my first events with friends and earned my money back in just a couple events. From that point on, I was booking events for total strangers at events I held, and made so many new friends. My TV family is also amazing. I do have just one regret..... why did I not know about Traveling Vineyard years before! What an amazing blessing TV has been, connecting me with new friends, introducing me to new wines, making me excited to learn and to grow my business. Oh, and the financial reward. It wasn't my priority, but it certainly has helped me though so many financial hardships. Thank you TV! #makingmoneynevertastedsogood #drinkwinelikeyougetpaidforit #wineguildelife

    I am so glad I found Traveling Vineyard. It has been a huge eye opener for me as to how to easily earn some extra cash. Plus it's fun and I get to meet new people while sipping wine!! Can't complain about that, lol. I have now been able to slowly pay off my debt. I am hoping to completely be out of debt by end of this year. I also get to do tastings on any night I wish or just take time off when I'd like. I work full time during the day and am a single mom, so it's nice to have that flexibility. I love the wine guide life!!

    Becoming a wine guide was one of the best things I’ve done so far. As a new mommy the income is a great part time job that I love to do! Help is always there and I love stepping out my shell to teach people about all the exclusive wines and see their reactions. I love it and can’t wait to see how it will go as I keep going!

    Two years ago today I was visiting my oldest daughter in Chicago and lying on her coach feeling sorry for myself I asked her "What can I do with my life" I never thought I would be asking my college student but I did. You see I had been a stay home mom for over 23 years with 3 beautiful daughters and a husband who is literally gone out of the country 15 days out of the month. My children were growing and leaving home and I have the opportunity to travel with or without my husband. So I wanted something but something that I could control my schedule. I wanted to decide how much ,how little I would work. I wanted the flexibility and the freedom and something fun. Well after taking my daughters advise and googling home-based business I stumbled upon Traveling Vineyard. As I read all that it had to offer me and how I could drink wine and get paid for it I realized then that I had won the jack-pot! I was immediately put in contact with my wine mama Jill Spence, and after a few conversation I had signed up. Never been to a tasting, never drank the wine but I jumped in with both feet. Like I said it has been 2 years of all the F's that Traveling Vineyard had offered. I am able to travel still (which is my passion), I still get to spend time with my husband and girls, I have made so many lasting friendship and I earned enough income to help buy a camper for me and my husband.
    Thank you Rick Libby and all the Cheerleaders for this amazing opportunity Traveling Vineyard has given me and I am excited to see what lies ahead for me.

    Today is my 1 year anniversary as a Traveling Vineyard Wine Guide... or "wine chic" as some of my customers will say. I started this business a year ago - with guidance from my wine mama Elaine Doyle-Gillespie, with the sole purpose of making a little extra money, learning a TON more about wine and the art of wine-making, AND - most important of all - meeting new people!!!! I recently moved to Indiana from Upstate New York and found myself struggling to find people/adults to talk to. My day job consists of me planning corporate events for a company based in Upstate New York - which means I work from home; and my evenings include shuffling my youngest to various rehearsals, dance performances, etc... as he is an aspiring musical theater actor. I found myself needing an outlet to interact with adults.. I hosted a few events and thought this "side business" would be a pretty amazing fit... and here I am today! 1 year later, I've made a decent amount of cash, have been learning a TON about wine... and have met many, many women - some of whom I now call "friends". Thank you Traveling Vineyard for this opportunity... for having amazing wines... and amazing mentors!

    Where do I even begin? When I started down my wine guide endeavor, I did it with the intention to learn all about wine. Wine had been something special that I got to share for a short time with my mum before her passing so I wanted to continue sharing special memories with everyone I came in contact with in honor of her memory.

    Within no time, I got more than I bargained for, and honestly, something I did not anticipate. The friends that I have come to make in Traveling Vineyard have truly been special and made this experience so much more worthwhile. As one of the few elusive male wine guides, it was so special to not only find like minded individuals, but also form amazing ties of friendship that I know will last for years to come. I often joke that it is the magical 6th "F" of Traveling Vineyard, Family. The hustle and passion shared among my family of wine guides and being surrounded by so many unique, fun-loving people really keeps me striving to be the best. They make me want to hold myself to a standard and share in the success. It truly is not just a job or an opportunity, it is an experience and a chapter in the story of our lives. It truly has been a blessing!

    First off i have to say Thank You, Rick Libby & everyone at Traveling Vineyard Head Quarters. You guys do everything possible to help us Independent Wine Guides be successful in this business. This was one of the Best decisions i have made in a long time, financially for my family & socially for myself. One of my favorite things about this company is the company is brings me. I meet so many people from all over and love every single person i meet. Its more then just a company it's honestly Family. My up line Niqui is family now and I am so grateful Wine brought us together. There are so many people in my life now that I've all met because of this company and im so blessed to have them all in my life. I joined this company for some "me time" and now its beyond that. From being a stay-at-home mom with two little's who are in dance classes, swim lessons and pageants in all different states, i needed that extra financial help to keep my little's busy and Travelling Vineyard has done just that for us. Plus this is that little bit of Fun i think every stay-at-home, full time, or part time working mom needs in their life. I enjoy my nights sharing wine with others and being gone only 2-4 hours at a time i don't miss much when it comes to my family. Thank you for the flexibility i had been looking for to help provide for my family while not being away for hours during the day. This is my absolute favorite side hustle, full time, and part time job i love even though its never even felt like work just fun!

    Two years ago today, I took a leap of faith and joined a company that literally is changing my life. I had tried direct sales in the past, numerous times. I usually just ended up "broker" because I had to carry inventory or products to show. I swore I would never do it again! But, life circumstances changed and we needed to increase our income. So I gave it one more shot, and I'm so glad I did! I found a company who's products I could stand behind 100%, who's mission statement and values I could stand behind 100%, and I have made some of the best friends I've had in my whole life! All because of wine. I'm more successful with Traveling Vineyard than I've ever been with any other company (because I LOVE the product!) and I'm actually making money, not losing it because I don't have to carry inventory! I am so excited and hopeful about what the future with Traveling Vineyard has in store for me, and I know I will be around for many years to come! Thank you Traveling Vineyard for giving people like me an opportunity to fulfill our dreams!

    One year ago, I made a choice that changed my life. I started an adventure that was mine and mine alone. My "why" for starting this adventure changed throughout the year and I've learned so much about myself. I learned other people's opinion of me is none of my business. I learned no one gets to tell me how big my dreams can be. I learned personal growth is something to embrace every day not just when you think it's needed. I discovered what I've been missing in my life and how learning this has impacted how I go about achieving the fulfillment that I've been missing.

    I found a second family that shines beside me instead of casting shadows upon me. They lift me up and encourage me every day. I'm allowed to take a break when needed and I'm allowed to soar when I'm ready. It's my pace, all the time. I'm thankful everyday for my second family who lift me up to #Reach for the moon; #Inspire me to achieve greatness: #Support me when I feel I'm letting them down; and #Empower me to stand tall! #RISE2019.

    One year ago, I became a Wine Guide with #TravelingVineyard and it was the best decision for me. In a year's time, I've become a Three-Star Leader, I have three wonderful ladies who have joined my team and each have a unique way in which they touch my life everyday. I have three amazing leaders who provide support in their individual way, but each way completes the support I need. And then I have lots Wine Sisters/Brothers who fill the gaps entirely!

    Fun, flexibility, fulfillment, financial reward and friendship found all in one place! Traveling Vineyard is not just a direct sales company, it's a family, my family! I cannot wait to see what the next year holds!
