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.

Five years being a Wine Guide has been a great adventure. Not only is it FINANCIALLY rewarding but, FULFILLING knowing I get to do something I enjoy. Learning and sharing information about wine is FUN and I’ve made some new wine FRIENDSHIPS ??. The last year has allowed my to capitalize on the FLEXIBILITY aspect of our “5f’s”. Cheers

My husband loves to cook and we are always eating delicious meals. Since becoming a wine guide we now have learned how to pair a glass of wine with our meals. I have loved learning all things wine, and sharing it with all my customers. I’ve made such great relationships from this journey and plus I get to sip all this wonderful wine through traveling vineyard!

I have gained so many friends in my 9 years as a wine guide between fellow wine guides I know I can turn to when I need advice, to hosts and guests that can’t wait to try our newest wines! I love giving people that AHA! moment when they fall in love with a wine they never would have tried before! I can also say that I can confidently order wine in a restaurant like a pro!

WOW! Awesome! HAPPY 9-year WINEAVERSARY to ME! It has flown by! Believe it or not, my hubby did not really want me to join. THEN I earn a free trip and he was all in! I did not know much about wine. NOW I know plenty and more than most humans! Traveling Vineyard is exceptional towards their Wine Guides and gives GREAT support in all areas. I have had and met lofty sales goals and have pulled back at times to take on other life commitments. It truly is whatever
I NEED it to be! Lifelong friends have been made and then there is that WINE GUIDE DISCOUNT! CHOOSE FUN!

10 years and I’m still in love! ??

I was not looking for #WineGuideLife, it found me. Who knew that when I joined the Taste of the Business call that day, my glass would begin filling.

I joined because I wanted to learn about wine and pairing it with food AKA Fun. Well, it’s been an exciting food palette expanding, comfort zone escaping, education filled 10 years! My wine family has been inspiring, helpful and encouraging. Many of my customers have become FRIENDS. The bonds formed have been faithful. Joining this Traveling Vineyard wine journey has been priceless. I’m Food & Wine Pairing Certified plus Level 1 in Spirits Certified and I get to share all the FUN at each tasting event. Yay!

Today is my 10 year wine-iversary. I have never been a part of a company that is as incredibly supportive as this incredible group of wine guides. The people that I have met on this journey are lifelong friends. We celebrate life milestones together, we travel together and even though we are not often physically together, we are together in spirit and wine! Traveling Vineyard has been one of the few constants in my life as a mom and a military spouse. We may move all over, but wine is always there. I feel like as a military spouse getting into direct sales was one of the smartest decisions I ever made! Mil Spouses are inherently flexible, dependable and ready to roll no matter what, and those traits are everything I could ask for in a wine team member. This year I took a step back from my wine business to pursue a life long dream in education, and guess what? Wine is always there! There are few businesses that will allow you to work it when it works for you. There are few companies that will support you in your dreams even when it doesn't directly benefit then, but wine is always there! I am a wine guide for life, and it's because of the people that make this company what it is. 100% I am the confident, strong woman I am today because of this business, these people and this opportunity I jumped into 10 years ago!

It's my 1 year anniversary of being a wine guide! Yay!! When I signed up one of my dearest friends became my Wine Mama, then she moved to another state. Traveling Vineyard has been a great reason to stay in touch and had kept our relationship as close as ever. In the last year I have met a supportive bunch of people and have invaluable human resources available to me.

About 4 months into my Wine Guide life, my family encountered personal tragedy. My Mother-in-law passed in December. Somehow I was able to keep all my bookings, but it was personally stressful. I have to say that I would rather be showing wine, talking about wine and sipping a little wine if I have to have a side gig than doing anything else. Especailly at a time like that. In March, my 8 year old nephew passed. He was a sick kid and we were lucky to get the 8 years we had, but it was still too short. I decided it was best for my family and my mental health to take some time away.

My wine mama was nothing but supportive. I didn't get anything but support in my decision. No one harassed me, I wasn't at risk of losing my business, unlike other MLMs. When I was ready to come back, there was a crazy fun Harvest to fire me back up. My Wine, Great-great-great-great grandma (I think that's right) was ready to invite me to a vendor event, walk me through how to do it and set me up with so many potential leads.

The culture here is unreal, in the most positive way. It's like working for a small company, or being part of a large family. Take your pick.

I have been with traveling Vineyard for one year and have absolutely loved the friendships that I have made. My goal was to start this business so I could do this after retirement from teaching. I did have a slower year than I wanted but I had to have knee replacement which set me back for a few months, but I am ready to get back and looking forward to what this second year will bring. This is a great company to work for, I had so many questions when I started and the Cheerleaders were awesome.

The flexibility of the program is good for changing seasons of life. Some years I do parties and some I just order wine for myself and my wineclub member subscriptions. It's not the most profitable way to do things, but suits this time in my life until I'm available to do more.

I joined traveling vineyard because I loved the wine, and the experiences I learned about through wine tastings. Even though hosting does not fit this season of my life now, I enjoy the wine club shipments and continue having people order through me.
