    I have been involved in other direct sales companies in the past and Traveling Vineyard is by far the very best! I can decide how much I want to put into my business and when and not have to worry about minimums or going "inactive" because I didn't sell enough. Traveling Vineyard cares about their Wine Guides, they provide all the training and tools necessary to be successful! It's entirely up to me how much or little I want to do with it! The people are very friendly and the product is amazing! I mean who wouldn't LOVE to taste new wines as part of their work?!?! Keep up the good work Traveling Vineyard and looking forward to new wines!

    I've been a wine guide for a whole year now, time flies when you're having fun! I have enjoyed every minute of it and have made some new friends along the way. TV has made becoming a wine guide so easy! Thanks to all of the people behind the scenes that make our jobs so rewarding!

    Being a wine guide has opened me up to a lot of new friendships and the ability to start speaking to people. I'm a shy person by nature when I don't know you I won't speak. By becoming a wine guide I'm learning to put those fears aside and step out of my comfort zone. This year at Harvest made me realize that I fear fear itself and now that I know this I'm learning how to overcome this and grow my wine business. Being a wine guide has also given me the financial freedom to buy those extra gifts for my kids. I hope to make some positive changes and grow my business this Harvest year and many years to come. I love being a wine guide. It's showing me how to grow as a person and in my business.

    With preparing for Harvest and then taking my family on our first cruise...this is slightly delayed...
    About 1.5 years ago, I was downsized from my job and felt completely defeated. I had worked for 16 years there and transformed the place to help it thrive. I was a bit lost and not sure what I wanted to do next. I knew I needed something with a flexible schedule and I was sure I needed something that had an equal salary. After many months of applying to countless jobs of all kinds, I saw Ashley post the stats about different DS companies. As a person who didn’t even like wine, I wasn’t sure if this was the best idea but I couldn’t stop getting the question out of my head “imagine where all those people who were the first 5000 consultants are today?” ” My husband is a huge wine lover, so I figured there must be more people out there who love wine as well (even if it wasn’t me). I needed to bring in some income for my family while I searched for that “perfect job,” so I joined TV.
    I knew so little about wine and wasn’t sure if I could do this. But then you go to the GrapeVine and TheWineOHs and you find endless resources created by other guides. I was so amazed that this company was about supporting each other which was clearly the culture created by WHQ. The wine tastings were fun and I was starting to even enjoy the wine. My desire to find another job started waning and I poured myself into this. As I did so, not only did this become financially rewarding but I started changing as a person. I was an introvert who avoided going out and talking to strangers at all cost. I now go up to people, accept invitations and feel comfortable in groups. I even danced across the stage at Harvest! With that I also made friends at my tastings, with other guides and reconnected with friends from my past. I was a perfectionist with a lot of self-doubt. I am now more confident and am ok if something doesn't go “right.” I was a person that was very frugal and felt that I never had enough money. Now, I just took my family on a cruise and upgraded the cabin. My salary is nowhere close to where it was at my last job (maybe 25%), but I feel richer. My heart is happy and I am fulfilled.

    I joined Traveling Vineyard as a fun way to make some extra money. What I didn't know was that I was joining this network of amazing, inspirational people. Soon after joining I transitioned from one full time career to another with Traveling Vineyard giving me enough financial freedom that I could take my time while I found the right new career move for myself. I can't wait to see what this year With my wine tribe has in store for me.

    I can't believe its been 2 years since I joined the Wine Family. Traveling Vineyard IS the best Direct Selling company to be a part of. I know this because I've worked with four other direct selling companies (until I found TTV) and Traveling Vineyard stands out when it comes to what’s best for their Wine Guides.
    I became a Wine Guide because I needed the extra money to make my car payment; but it became so much more! Shortly after becoming a Wine Guide I told Donna, "I found my calling", and haven't looked back since. I Love my Wine Family, all the friends I have met and continue to meet, the flexibility to work around MY schedule and the financial ability to make my car payment and still have extra left over to do as I please.
    Within the past two years I grew my team to 23 Wine Guides and became a Team Leader.
    Thank you Traveling Vineyard for giving me this wonderful opportunity!!

    1 year ago I decided to join TV to earn and save money to purchase a pool I have really wanted. As a constant flow of extra income started to come in I realized how this money could help our family. I was not relying on my husband for groceries or gas in my van anymore. So basicly my pool went out the window. I am a stay at home mom of 3 and my husband works 60-70hrs a wk. This extra cash has been nice. In this year everyone has been nice and friendly anytime I have questions or problems they are always answered/resolved right away. I'm so happy I decided to start this adventure, I wish I would have sooner. Every customer leaves the tasting happy and thinks this in home wine tasting thing is the coolest. People want you in their homes. This past year has been great to me and my family. I'm excited to see what the future holds for me!!!

    🍷CHEERS, to another year with Traveling Vineyard🍷

    Becoming a wine guide was the best decision I've ever made. I absolutely love my job and I am so glad that I found something that I am passionate about! I have met so many fantastic people and I have loved watching my team grow and thrive! And due to the Traveling Vineyard I was able to book a 1 week trip to Florida for me and my boyfriend in an upscale Hyatt! I love that I get to live my life and enjoy delicious wine along the way. Wine on my friends!
