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 used to like a few wines, mostly sweets. My friends were booking tastings off each other's party & after showing up at ALL of them, I decided to join TV myself. :) Now I love a lot more wines than just the sweet ones, I get to have fun showing the wines, & watching people who never drink wine, discover they like it...a lot!! LOL Bonus is I get paid to do it!!

It's hard to believe one year has gone by! I met my Wine Momma at a work conference where she shared with me her "fun" job was being a wine guide. We clicked right away and when she mentioned I too could be a wine guide- I was all in! I hosted a tasting for her and immediately signed up and have never looked back. The company speaks to the 5 "F"s and I want to share my number one F is the friends I have met! We have a great company, awesome wine and fabulous friends! Looking forward to what the next year has in store!

Being a wine guide has made me realize that I can have a job I love! I graduated from college with an optimistic attitude and believed I could do and be anything I wanted... the "real" world has a way of squashing that optimism. When my husband and I decided we were going to start a family I decided I need to take control of my happiness again and I brain stormed and researched to find a job that would fit my needs perfectly. I am so glad I chose to take the opportunity to become a wine guide and although I can't contribute the amount of time I would really like to at the moment the beauty is that I can still be involved and growing and I can spend the time I am able. I see great things in the future and I can't wait until I am really able to take off with my business because I see such great potential. There is no other job I would rather do.

The feature of Traveling Vineyard I find most rewarding is the one time investment and lack of future additional expenses if you work your business. The fact that we do not inventory is huge. That we can EARN all our business essentials, including business card, is monumental. So many folks out there have to make a big sacrifice to make the initial investment, but knowing that you may never have to spend money that you have not earned and received first is a game changer, and quite a blessing. It makes Traveling Vineyard almost risk free, when you consider the 10 bottles of wine you get with your starter kit! This feature is one that I truly emphasize when talking with my guests and in casual conversations with people. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to run a "debt free" business!

This has been the best one of the best years for me. The amount of support we get from the cheerleaders, our wine mommas and grandmas and the whole team is amazing. I have learned so much and been having a blast! This doesn't even feel like work that's for sure!!

I just hit my one-year WINE-averseray with The Traveling Vineyard, and I could not be happier with my choice. I initially decided to become a wine guide for extra income and flexibility. Happily, I continue to be a wine guide for both of those reasons, but the new friendships I have made have proven to be an added bonus. I love that it allows me the flexibility to work my business when it makes sense for me and to earn extra income to help pay off expenses for my upcoming wedding. I have met so many INCREDIBLE people through this company (other wine guides, hosts, potential hosts and leads, and more), and I have thoroughly enjoyed making so many new friends. It certainly helps as well that our wine is AMAZING. PLUS, there are NO SALES QUOTAS! That's pretty much unheard of in direct sales. I can't wait to see what the next year holds for me and my Traveling Vineyard business!

My life as a wine guide has been life changing. I have grown relationships with my hosts, my palate has changed drastically, and more importantly I have gotten over a fear of stage freight. To say that this past year hasn't been an adventure would be a lie. It's had it's ups and downs, and although I'm still working out the kinks to my business I couldn't have been happier to make an investment into my future. Thanks TV for an amazing wineiversary and I look forward to so many more years!

When I first joined the company, my why was 100% because i needed the money. I really wanted to have extra money to travel. Four months into this business i lost my full time job. This was something that really hit me hard as i had never been out of work before. So i decided to dive head first into this "wine gig" and hope it could get me through unemployment. Some where in between building a team, looking for a new job and this Texas heat my "why" changed. Getting a chance to meet new or potential team members gave me a chance to learn what their "why" was for joining Traveling Vineyard. During this time i even had a chance to grow closer to my wine mama, Lindsey Kuehn. While earning extra income for myself was great, my team members and Lindsey motivated me more than anything. Its ironic to hear that people want flexibility, something fun to do, to make new friends, etc. Which is everything that this company is about. So i am more than happy to say that my "why" has changed. I can now say its "fulfillment". The satisfaction of watching everyone on my team achieve their goals is something you cannot put a dollar amount on. To Rick, everyone at headquarters, my amazing leader Lindsey, and everyone in between - its been an amazing year and looking forward to many more!

I'm celebrating one year with TV! I started with a bang and fizzled...for many reasons. I'm excited to have started booking tastings again and look forward to a successful year supplementing my "adventure fund." :-)

I joined TTV primeraly for the flexibility. I tell people I'm a full time mom. But a part time wine guide. I can work as much or as little as I like and still bring in some extra money. This has been the easiest job because who doesn't love wine !?!
