    5 years with Traveling Vineyard. I have a Masters degree in teaching, but lost my passion for it. I wanted more time with my kids and more time for myself - I did not want to be stuck in a classroom all day. I found TV on an internet search 5 years ago, never having done direct sales before. I jumped in both feet, full on. The thing I LOVE most is that I am able to replace my teaching salary in 100% flexible work hours. I can work when my kids are at school, have time to go to the gym, go on a hike etc. Then I can be home for my kids after school. I escape to wine tastings about 6 nights a month, and work with my team around my personal life (soccer practice is a great time to catch up with team members and potential team members). I have found incredible fulfillment in training my team and seeing them reach their goals and be successful business owners. Many incentive trips, Elite leader trips, paychecks and WINE bottles later.... I am thankful every day for Traveling Vineyard. Cheers!

    Traveling Vineyard has changed my life! I can't even imagine my life without Traveling Vineyard! This second year I have rally focused on the 5 F's and how they continually change to fit my needs. The flexibility to be able to help out with my granddaughters when needed. The financial reward of being able to take on the majority of our Christmas shopping this last year. The fulfillment of knowing that I am my own boss, I can work when I want to, but the fun I have had at tastings and the forever friendships that I have made are probably the most important to me! These are people I would probably never have met, and they are the greatest reward from this wine adventure! I wouldn't trade it all for the world! These friendships have not only come from host and guests, but this last year I was able to attend my first Harvest, I know I would meet a lot of other wine guides and gain a lot of knowledge, but I never expected to form such a great bond with so many people! What a great experience these last two years have been and I can't wait to see what the future has in store! Traveling Vineyard has truly changed my life!!

    Imagine waking up morning after morning dreading going to work!! Being a teacher you were shaping young minds and everyone always gave you accolades for being a special needs teacher, but deep down I was super unhappy! My heart was not in it! I couldn’t wait to go home and drink wine or have winedowns with my friends! Finally, fed up, I quit my job of 21 years as a school teacher! I thought about real estate till I realized I could not pass the test, and clearly God was telling me that it’s not the job for me! I started researching MLM wine companies which coincided with traveling vineyard opening up in the state of Indiana! I thought to myself here is “your Sign Sydney”. You love wine, this company is brand new in Indiana, and you love sales. So I signed up and never looked back!! I LOVE my job!

    I began this journey afraid and desperate - desperate for change, desperate for purpose, desperate for something bright and MINE. I was a lonely and increasingly home-bound stay-at-home mom. Becoming a wine guide with Traveling Vineyard has truly changed my life, not just my outlook! Though I treasure my family, I needed the fulfillment of something completely outside the sphere of my children - something fun, something financially rewarding, something that could bring friendship back into my life. This job has been everything I hoped it would be. It's challenging, it's so much fun, it's exciting! The best part? People like what I do. It's like a daily high-five of epic proportions!

    I love Traveling Vineyard! I joined alittle over a year ago and it has been a blessing, I can only grow and be better as each year goes. My goal for my first year was to just keep at it knowing I would fail many times. 2019 I'm looking forward to growing a team of my own. Cheers to 2019 and all the amazing things. Thanks you TV.

    Before becoming a Wine Guide, I was a school counselor for 3.5 years. I had never done direct sales before and definitely never thought I would. In September 2017, I had my first son, Theo, and knew right away I wanted to be a stay at home mom. Thus, I desperately began searching the internet for "work from home" jobs. I was on Facebook one day and some girl in one mom group I was in posted how much she loved her job because she got PAID to drink wine and give FREE in-home wine tastings! Naturally, I was super intrigued. So, I stalked her Facebook page and found out she worked for the Traveling Vineyard, something I had never heard of. I looked up their website and fell in love. I could get paid to give free wine tastings... all while drinking the wine myself? It seemed to be too good to be true! Just the thought of this opportunity really tugged at my heart and gave me butterflies. It truly felt like it was something I was meant to do. I could not stop thinking about neat it was, how I could really see myself doing it, and how I could see people LOVING IT! So, I resigned from my full-time school counselor job and became a Wine Guide! This was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life! Being a Wine Guide has provided for me and my family in so many ways. 1) I get to be a stay at home mom, which has always been my dream. 2) When I go to "work", I get to drink and talk about wine with other people. It really doesn't get any better than that! I have never had more fun at a job! 3) I make my own schedule and work whenever I want. As a stay at home mom, I am grateful for any opportunity to get dressed up and be with other adults! These wine tastings have been a true blessing for me! 4) I get paid in $$$ and earn FREE WINE every single month!!?? If you are like me, you can see how Traveling Vineyard is a no-brainer.. Our wine is amazing, our community is so inspiring and encouraging, and the job is a blast. This month marks my 1 year in the business. I just promoted to being a Team Leader and just found out I earned our ALL-INCLUSIVE beach trip for 2020. I am so grateful for Traveling Vineyard and the opportunity to have my own business doing what I love. Thank you Rick Libby and everyone at TV for making my dreams come true every single day! :)

    Sunday marked my 2 year anniversary with Traveling Vineyard! When I went to my first tasting I did not know what to expect. I hadn’t ever heard of one before. I knew that I liked Moscato wine for sure and didn’t think I would like anything else. Well I was wrong! I was blown away that I not only had fun but I found 4 different types of wines I liked! Our Wine Guide Amy talked about Traveling Vineyard and I thought, “Too good to be true!” I had tried a direct selling business before and it didn’t work out. This seemed different though. I told Amy I wanted to become a Wine Guide! We messaged for hours after the event and the next day. My husband and I looked at the website and we asked Amy many questions. Finally I was ready to sign up! Little did I know what I was in for! I have made lots of friends and have had so much fun! I still learn something new about wine at every tasting! I have learned to set goals for myself and I have achieved a lot of them! This “side biz” allows me to have “my time” and enjoy it with friends and wine, all the while earning some money in the process! This whole company just amazes me! From the CEO all the way to the newest Wine Guide, Traveling Vineyard truly is a supportive family! I can’t wait to see what my future with Traveling Vineyard holds!

    Seven years ago, I took a single step to join Traveling Vineyard in order to bring additional income into my home to support my family during a very difficult time. The economy was weak, and it was a challenge to make ends meet. In those seven years, I undoubtedly have taken more than a thousand steps on this wine soaked journey. But those steps have led me to grow my business, meet amazingly fun people, travel to interesting places, and expand my passion for wine, all while having the flexibility to work around my full-time job. While I have made many other changes in the last seven years to rebuild my life and find happiness again, the one constant that has always brought me true happiness was my wine business. The true joy I feel sharing wine with the world is what keeps me moving forward year after year. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing company that allows me to present incredible wines to guests and hosts at each wine tasting event! These special individuals have opened their hearts and homes to help me build my business, and now I’m proud to call many of them my friends! Being a wine guide means so much to me, and I’m so grateful that I made the decision to join Traveling Vineyard!

    I joined Traveling Vineyard about a year ago and it has been a blessing. I always said I would never sell anything keep become a consultant until I found out you can sell wine. I was never at tasting before or even heard of Traveling Vineyard. I am soo happy that I took a chance and became a wine guide, it has changed me for the better. I am more open and more outgoing than I've ever been. I met so many great people and made lots of friends along the way. I am so excited to see what 2019 has to bring me and I am excited to grow a team and become a team leader.
    Cheers to 2019 and thank you Traveling Vineyard for being so awesome and helpful in every way.

    Choosing to be a wine guide one year ago with Traveling Vineyards was such a wonderful decision!! I see that the reward is not only financial but is truly for friendship and fun as well! I enjoy the flexibility of making my own schedule and am fulfilled by the amount I have learned about not only wine but also running my own business! The support I have received from my team (particularly my wine gma) and HQ are unparalleled! I look forward to continued success, growth and of course LOTS of WINE in my future with Traveling Vineyards!
