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 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!

I joined the wonderful FAMILY that we call Traveling Vineyard 3 years ago. I was looking for a way to earn some extra money to pay for my oldest son's senior year of high school and graduation. I had done some other direct sales companies over the years and really didn't want to get back into all that. Lugging around inventory, taking money and often times making deliveries, none of that appealed to me at all anymore. So when I stumbled about TV during a google search I though, what......?? I can get PAID to share wine? Too good to be true! I reached out to WHQ and was matched up with the amazing Niqui Douglas. I told her during our first conversation that I had already made up my mind to join, what do I need to do. The rest as they say, is history.....

What I gained since joining has been this amazing FAMILY of wine partners. Wonderful friendships that have been formed. A network of people that truly want to help one another and support one another's successes and accomplishments. It was the best decision ever!!

2 years in working for Traveling Vineyard has been winederful!
My top 5 reasons it has been great:
1. I love getting to meet new people who love wine like me. Many I call friends now.
2. Learning and teaching about wine to those that don’t drink much wine and then watching them fall in love with our wine.
3. Getting to buy and drink amazing wine at a discount!
4. Earning a little extra cash/rewards/and this year the all inclusive Costa Rica trip!
5. Being a part of a topnotch company with amazing leader support that feels like family now! This being the reason I’ll stay!

I joined TV a year ago and it was one of the best decisions I have made in a while. I started to find a way to help my family out while being a stay at home mom. The schedule is great, well because I can make it my own! I can decide on which days I would prefer to do a tasting event and I can set goals that I feel are ones that I can reach.
I people that I have met through being a guide, both hosts, friends and other guides, has been great!
I am reaching for new goals going into my second year and hoping that I can reach and go past them!
Thank you for giving me the freedom to grow, change and do things my way!

I joined Traveling Vineyard a year ago to supplement my income and I'm so glad I did! I love this company and the friends (both wine guides and customers) I've made along the way. This company does everything with the wine guide's benefit in mind and I could not be more grateful for that. I'm so happy that I made the choice to jump right in even though I had never even been to a tasting! I'm so thankful for my wine mama and team that are always willing to help out when I have a question or need a boost. I love this Traveling Vineyard life!
