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.

Who would have thought that when I joined just for a little extra time away from my boys and little extra money all those years ago, that this little side hustle would turn into so much more! More fun, more friends, more time with family, more money, and more wine! Cheers to another grape year working with friends that have become family. #morethanwine

I have been a wine guide for 4 amazing years now. I initially joined as a way to meet new friends. Not only have I gained friends from all over the country. I have a supplemental income which covers family travel and unexpected bills as well as a retreat from my grueling day job. This company always puts wine guides first and the entire staff are absolute delights to work with!!!!!

Being a Wine Guide has been fun even with the challenges this past year.. It has given me a chance to stop out of my comfort zone by meeting new people and trying different kinds of wine. Everyone has been so helpful in answering any questions I have had especially my wine mama! I have learned so much I can’t wait to see what this year brings!

5 years! Wow! It sure has flown by, but it also feels like a lifetime. I really didn’t know what this journey would hold for me 5 years ago, but now I can see that it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Being a Wine Guide has added so much positive & value to my life, and I would not know what to do without my wine business.

Traveling Vineyard has been such a huge blessing over this last year. I have been able to help support my family financially, make my own schedule and meet some amazing people who I consider close friends now. With having 2 young children and being a stay at home mom, this has been one of the best discussions I could have made for myself and my family!

I had no expectations when I joined, new very little about wine, but I took the leap to try something new. Boy, it has blew my expectations out of the water! I love the wine, I love the wine community and am so glad I said Yes four years ago. My favorite F is friendship. I have made unbelievable friendships that I know will last a lifetime and I would never had the opportunity if I hadn't take a chance on this company. So, Thank You and I look forward to many more years!

Being a Traveling Vineyard wine guide has truly been a blessing to me. I’ve made so many new friends, made memories that will last a lifetime and realize that’s the sky is the limit and I can achieve the anything with hard work and kindness, one glass at a time.

WOW! I can hardly believe I’ve been a wine guide for 6 years! What an adventure. Little did I know when I started just how much joy, adrenaline, belly laughter, fun, friendship and accomplishment I would experience. I am so proud and thrilled at everything I’ve learned about wine, relationships, business and myself! I seriously can’t recommend #wineguidelife enough! Tank you Traveling Vineyard for giving me something to be excited about every day!

I am celebrating my 3rd Wineaversary this month! Much has happened since joining Traveling Vineyard, including relocating to my hometown in Wisconsin (during Covid-19!). My team is small but we treat our businesses like they are BIG. Over the past year and a half our team has started meeting on Zoom each month to stay in touch, we are located in AZ & WI. Stacy Isbell, my Wine Mama, encourages and leads us. Oh, I'm a Wine Mama too. Catherine Schmahl joined my team May of 2020, so we learned together to do virtual tastings and keep our business going in a new and sometimes difficult season. Wine was always a fave of mine and so sharing that love with others has been fun. It is so exciting when I meet a host or client who is as enthusiastic about wine & food as me! Thank you, Traveling Vineyard, for all you do.

I love that I get to work my business when I want! I also never imagine the friendships I’d have across the US thanks to this business and thanks to Wine Camp!!!

It’s crazy to think I’ve been doing this for 4 years and I have grown a team, earned two Luxx trips, paid off debt, took my family on vacation and working on paying off my student loans…looking forward to more wine friendships and sharing my love for wine to many more.

What a difference the last five years have made. Traveling Vineyard led me to realize that my fullest potential lies in a flexible & fulfilling gig that allows me to make an impact on others too. Traveling Vineyard led me to my yoga practice and now my coaching practice. I love being an entrepreneur!

I have countless, amazing friends and fun memories that would never have existed, if I hadn’t said “yes” to a gut feeling. I am proud to be a wine guide with this company; proud to have something that is my own and that I deeply & truly enJOY.

Find something you love to do, and never work a day in your life!

My Traveling Vineyard journey began when I had to say “goodbye” to my initial business hustle after seven years of service. The adventure brought immeasurable value and fellowship to my life that I thought I could never replace or encounter again, but then, arrived Traveling Vineyard.

This new joyous journey offers meaningful value and a special uniqueness like no other. It was exactly what I was looking for! I could only embrace the fulfillment it brought to my heart. Traveling Vineyard became part of my lifestyle as they welcomed me with open arms. After only one year, I found another extended family that I am truly grateful for. And let me tell you…there is no turning back! I look forward to another amazing year full of fun, fulfillment, friendships, flexibility, and financial reward.

Today marks 5 years I've been a wine guide and I can't wait for the next 5. I started this thinking I'd make a little money on the side of my full time job (which I still work full time) but it's become such a large part of my life. Being a wine guide gives me the opportunity to have a hobby that I absolutely love. I love meeting new people, and I certainly have underestimated the amount of friends I would make in my community. And new best friends across the country. The trips I have been able to take with my husband and friends is thanks to this business. I couldn't be more grateful for finding Traveling Vineyard.

If anyone would have asked me to pick up a 2nd job, I would have laughed and said you have to be kidding me! I'm a wife, mom of 2 very active kids, and have a high-paced busy full-time job. But, this mom was getting stuck in a routine working all day, making dinner, running the kids to sports, cleaning up just in time to head off to bed completely exhausted so I could get up and do it again the next day. I realized that I needed a hobby; a passion that was just for me. Joining Traveling Vineyard has been such a blessing! I can easily flex my schedule to put as little or as much time into my business as I want. I have met amazing people and reconnected with friends from years past! I leave plenty of family time and schedule my tastings so that they don't interfere. For me, this is not a job. I just happen to have a passion that brings income! How many people can say that?!!
