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.

I never thought when I started with Traveling Vineyard 3 years ago that it would blossom in a full time career and a job that I love doing! How many people could say that about their current job or even the part time job they work that pays for the extras in life?! The flexibility that Traveling Vineyard offers allows me to make my own schedule that fits my family's needs and myself. Speaking of family, is exactly how I would describe the friendships I've made while being a wine guide with other wine guides and even host and their guest too. No more Monday blues and painful hours watching the clock tick backwards! It's cheering on your best friend because they received a promotion or the CEO Rick Libby being a genuine person who always can check both boxes of being good for the company but also good for us as wine guides. He is the true backbone of a company with having that mindset that cares about you and not always the almighty dollar. I'm so thankful I stubbled upon Traveling Vineyard because I never knew what I was missing out on in life, till I was finally able to have the life I have now. I love being a wine guide, best friend, and my own boss at the end of the day!! Thank you for the opportunity of being apart of this amazing company!

I absolutely love being a Wine Guide! When I started my Traveling Vineyard adventure three years ago, I had no idea what was in store for me and my family. I joined with the intention of making some extra money to fill some financial gaps while my husband pursued a new career...however, as I grew my business and my team I was rewarded with much more than financial compensation! I developed life-long friendships, reconnected with friends from my past, had a ton of fun at my events on on free vacations that I achieved! The flexibility to run my Traveling Vineyard business alongside my full-time career and family is the best! I can work as much or as little as I need to meet my personal goals! Becoming a Traveling Vineyard Wine Guide was a great decision, and I can't wait to see what the future holds.

After 4 years I still love Traveling Vineyard as much if not more! I have learned to appreciate wine more, I have made a lot of new friends and I love the flexibility of scheduling of wine tastings based on MY time which is not easy with 4 active children! My Traveling Vineyard business also helps pay for their activities and other fun things for them like season passes to Busch Gardens and Water Country! And I LOVE the wines! Win-win for wine-wine!

Being a wine guide has been so much more than I ever expected... my Wine Dad and I have gotten to be wonderful friends and I always love chatting with him and his support is everything I've ever wanted. I have met so many incredible people during my tastings and my guests always make the events the most fun... fun and friends were my main reasons for joining and I've definitely gained both of those in the last year!

For me the wine guide life flexibility has been the best. I am able to work a full time job and do tasting for fun! It's a great way to meet new people, earn a little extra money, and all while trying some tasty wines! Can't beat it!

I joined Traveling Vineyard on Jan. 1 last year, and I am SO GLAD I went for it!! 2016 was such a fun and amazing year for me thanks to this business! I joined just because it seemed like a fun way to earn some extra money. I own a travel agency, and was just planning to do the wine business on the side. But this business has absolutely exploded for me, and I actually earned more money in my first year as a Wine Guide than I earned last year from the travel agency I've had for 7 years! I've also noticed a big change in myself personally since I've started this business. I've always been pretty self-conscious and introverted, but my success with this business has really brought me out of my shell and given me a ton of confidence that I never had before. There's nothing I love more now than getting up in front of a room full of people and talking about wine!

Where to begin...... I quit my teaching job of 21 years and needed to make a few bucks! I had previous direct sales experience but felt like in Indiana the market was flooded with consultants. I kept looking to sell wine but Indiana liquor laws prevented it! I kept a watchful eye and in changed! The rest is history....I love love love to be a wine guide. I make great commission and get paid to drink and be social.....what else is there???

One year ago, I stated my journey with Traveling Vineyard. I started because I needed something just for me, a break from the seriousness of my job. My goal was to learn more about wine, make a little extra cash. So those goals are met, but so much more has happened. I have met some great new friends (my wine groupies) and I'm making 2 car payments a month meeting new people, & sharing great wine with them! How great is that!

Traveling Vineyard gave me something for ME again! I was lost in Mom, Wife, Housekeeper, etc. Going to tastings and being an adult again saved my sanity and I have met so many wonderful people along the way!

I'm loving all the new friends I'm making in this job!
