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.

Today marks 3 years since I said Yes to an amazing opportunity and a great company! These 3 years have flown by! I have made so many new friends and have experienced so many new places! I never thought that when I joined I would have this much fun! The extra money has helped my family with credit card bills and my kids' activities. We also use it as our "fun money" to go do things with our kids and not have to second guess what our money is like! I'm so excited to see what my future hold with Traveling Vineyard!

8 years. It’s hard to believe that it has been THAT long already. Seems like yesterday that I joined, scared that I would fail miserably as a wine guide. I never marketed or sold anything in my entire life - and I was going into wine? Was I nuts? Nope. This has been one of the most fun and most personally fulfilling jobs I’ve ever had in my life. You know they say...if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. Well, I absolutely love this business. I love the friends I’ve made through trainings and conferences, as well as those I’ve made with hosts and guests through tasting events. I love that this business is flexible enough that I can still be successful and work around whatever life throws at me...and 2019 threw a lot at me! On many occasions, this business was the only thing that allowed me to feel normal when other parts of my life were out of whack. I love that this business puts me on a road to achieving things I never believed were possible. Traveling to cool places to learn about wine, watching and reading training materials given to me by our amazing team at WHQ, team building materials to help me fuel the passion for wine in others who love this business the way I do, and high-quality, delicious, award-winning wines from around the world to share with everyone at my tasting events...the perfect equation for success. Thank you, Traveling Vineyard, for this amazing opportunity in the world of wine. I have loved my journey so far, and I’m looking forward to the road ahead!

Three years ago I hosted a wine tasting that completely changed my life! I decided to join this little wine company to learn about wine, and I have learned so much about it that I love to share at my tastings. But the most important thing I have learned about since starting this journey is myself! I learned that I enjoy meeting people over a glass of great wine and I that I love sharing knowledge with my hosts, guests and my team members! Also, I have learned how to motivate myself in this journey. With no sales quotas from the company, and our no pressure leadership structure, I had to learn how to plan out how to accomplish my goals and then how to have the self-discipline to take the actions needed. This wine business is so much more than just selling wine! It's a personal development opportunity that comes with fantastic people, amazing wine in my glass, and a way to discover just what I'm capable of doing for myself to get what I want from life! Cheers!

I cannot believe it has been 3 years already! I joined looking for a little extra cash to travel with. I gained so much more! I gained knowledge, a group of like-minded, supportive people as a second family, new friends, and the confidence to reach for the stars in not only my professional life, but my personal life as well. I don't even want to think of where I would be without Traveling Vineyard. I can't thank Traveling Vineyard enough for the experiences they have afforded me!

I just celebrated my three year anniversary with Traveling Vineyard, and in all honesty, these have been three of the best years of my life. I had no idea that I even needed this business before I joined, and it has added so much value to my life. The extra income is great, but the sense of fulfillment and the friends that I have made as a result of this business, are priceless!

I have just celebrated 4 years as a wine guide, and I’m as excited today as the day I first started. Every year brings more fun, more challenges, more new friends and more wine! Traveling Vineyard provides countless opportunities for fulfillment, fun, financial reward, friendships and so much more! I cannot imagine what my life would be like now without Traveling Vineyard. I truly love living the wine guide life! Cheers to another amazing year! I can’t wait to see what 2020 holds????

December 18th was my first year anniversary with TV and what a year it has been!

When I researched TV after seeing a Facebook ad, I was impressed with the videos I found on YouTube and with Rick's delivery of what the company was about. I must have watched videos for two weeks straight before I decided to pull the trigger on submitting my information for someone to contact me. Within a couple of days, Sherry Robinson and I had set a date to talk and to go over the ins and outs of the what this "side gig" would entail. I booked my decider event 6 hours away from my home so that Sherry could come and do the demo herself and I could meet the person that would be my wine mama. While my event didn't go smooth at all (we all have those once in awhile!), I could see myself doing this and making some extra income to pay for weekend getaways and monthly massages. I signed up on December 18th and did my first event the last weekend of January.

I was immediately impressed with the level of training I received, the accessibility I had to customer support, and that no one ever seem bothered by the amount of questions I was asking. Landing on Niqui Douglas' team was just icing on the cake for feeling like I could really be a wine guide. Most every step of the process this year has been easy and for those that haven't, they have been a huge learning opportunity!

You read comments that it is more than just the wine and it couldn't be more true. I have this whole community of family and friends who 98% live a plane ride away from me, but they are cheering me on and supporting me and wanting good things for me just because! In this day and age, it hard to find that kind of unconditional support from any direction, but for people who have "real" jobs during the day and can still find time to support their TV family that is amazing to me.

I am in a bit of an uphill situation in here in Oregon where we have amazing wine on every corner, but I don't plan on quitting just cause it isn't easy. I have goals and a team to build, so I am super excited to see what year 2 brings for me!

Thanks for being exactly what I needed when I needed it so happy to be part of this team!

I have been a wine guide officially for three years now and it is hard to imagine my life without it. I joined on a complete whim from what we now call a decider event and I didn't even know why I said yes other than the fact that I had so much fun at a tasting and I thought I could make a little bit of money from it. I'm still having a BLAST at my tastings, still making money and met two of my best friends because of Traveling Vineyard. I still work a full time job on top of my wine business but have the flexibility at my 9-5 to do a lot of wine work there. In a few short weeks I'll be on my second LUXX trip with the company and have my eyes set on earning a third one this Spring. The WineGuideLife is one I don't see myself parting ways with. It has put a piece in my life puzzle that was lost and I had no idea that I needed to strongly. I look forward to the next 3, and the next 3 after that!
