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.

Traveling Vineyard started as a way for me to earn some side cash and fund my wine habit as a stay at home mom. I never anticipated that I would love this experience on such a personal level. It’s just a part time gig, but the friendship and fun that has come along with the financial gain is something that I do not take for granted.

FIVE YEARS and hundreds of new memories. This business is truly a blessing – gave me friends, fun, and financial rewards right when I needed them the most. And the friends I have met through the #wineguidelife will be with me for years and years to come.

I love being a wine guide. These past few months dealing with COVID-19 have been weird as both a healthcare worker and a human being. Having something else to focus on and be “normal” has been a saving grace for me. Wine truly brings people together, whether it’s my customers or fellow wine guides. I’m so grateful to have Traveling Vineyard in my life – it’s truly my other family!

This is hands down the best side hustle you could have. Relationships are always the most important tome and I have made some amazing friendships with other wine guides and also at my tastings. It’s so much fun, you get to try so many different wines and you couldn’t ask for a better community than the people with Traveling Vineyard!

Becoming a wine guide was one of the best things I’ve done so far. As a new mommy the income is a great part time job that I love to do! Help is always there and I love stepping out my shell to teach people about all the exclusive wines and see their reactions. I love it and can’t wait to see how it will go as I keep going!

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 !?!

Wine guide testimonial on 1st year anniversary
Wine tasting has been a hobby of mine since the early 80’s.
Having family near Napa made wine tasting a must on my visits to California. Remember being able to bring a few bottles home as carry on baggage? When I became a travel agent, I expanded my wine tasting experiences on an international level. Wineries are some of the most beautiful places in the world and I am on a quest to visit as many as I can.
When I heard about Traveling Vineyard, I thought what a perfect fit for me. I can have my wine and get paid too. Sign me up! I believe it’s important to know I am no rock star salesperson. I am retired and do 1 maybe 2 tastings a month. But whenever I need anything, WHQ treats me like I am their top priority. My tribe welcomed me so warmly, I began to understand the fellowship within this amazing company. Never have I been pushed to meet preset goals. Always receiving encouragement from everyone I contact at Traveling Vineyard.
The thing about wine is the more you know, the more there is to know. What a fun topic to educate yourself on. TV’s online training is exceptional and they are constantly updating. It is obvious to me that every effort is made to assure your success. All paperwork, social media, rewards, accounting are so well thought out. With such a small initial investment, how can anyone go wrong?
Colorado was having their regional within the 1st month of when I joined. I was a bit intimidated as I didn’t know anybody. I hadn’t even been to a tasting, let alone conducted one. But I decided it was important to know what this was all about. I am so very glad I did. Not only did I get to meet the chief grape stomper himself, but I left feeling I had made some very cool new friends. Their enthusiasm made me trust that I had made the right decision. I am excited to attend this year’s regional in April.
Guess you could say I am a cheerleader. I’ve made lots of new friends, some spending money and had lots of fun to boot. I enjoy seeing all the success stories on facebook and appreciate the positive journey I have been on this year.
Cheers,
Ginny Auserehl

Traveling Vineyard has allowed me to finally move out of my parent's house! Having this extra income supplements my income from my full time job and allows me to make extra payments on my student loan debt, enjoy a night out with friends, or plan a vacation! None of which would be possible on just my full time job salaray. I have made so many friends over the past year and now I have an amazing group of strong and supportive men and women that are always there to talk no matter what I need to talk about! They're not just there for the #wineguidelife, they're there for everyday life and it's amazing to have that kind of support. I have learned so much about wine, growing a business, and networking over the past year that helps me with my full time job. Also, my public speaking skills have gotten a lot better and I'm not quite as nervous anymore! When I signed up, I didn't realize I was making such a positive change in my life - I was just trying to make some extra money!

I never dreamed that becoming a wine guide a year ago would turn into what it has in such a short time! I never thought it would be possible to do something I love and have so much fun with PLUS make so many new friendships that I know will last a lifetime. In less than a year I have accomplished so many of my goals, especially becoming a Team Leader, and I've had a blast doing it! I can't wait to continue to grow my business & reach more goals I have set for my second year with TV. I am so thankful that I have such an awesome team & I look forward to helping them reach all of their goals in 2017 as well!

Since joining this amazing company one year ago, I have learned so much about the business of sales, how to be more confident in myself and my skills, and, of course, about all of the incredible wines that we have to offer. This has been such a fun journey, and I'm just getting started. I hope to increased my sales this year by meeting new people around my community.

I originally joined Traveling Vineyard as a means of supplementing income for my husband and me. When I learned of Traveling Vineyard, he was on unemployment at the time. We had been married less than two years, had recently sold his house in a negatively impacted economy, downsizing into my house to avoid foreclosure, and had two sets of bills we were trying to pay off. I had also finished an MBA program and had the itch to own my own business but wasn't sure what I wanted or what I could afford to do. Along comes Traveling Vineyard - pair that with my desire for a home business, my love of wine, and my need for additional income, and my world was changed forever! While I've had my share of personal ups and downs in life along the way, having the flexibility to work when I need to or as much as I wanted to helped my husband and I to pay off bills, save money on the side to build a new home, and supplement expenses for family vacations so we could give our son a happy life filled with great memories of times spent together. Having a full-time job and being a wife and mother doesn't leave much time for anything else, but Traveling Vineyard is a part of my life where I get to have fun, meet new people, make friends, learn about and drink amazing wines, and be my own boss! After 5 years with this company, I'm proud of how far I've come in building this business. I've overcome many obstacles along the way as a result of the strength I have drawn from my accomplishments, and I hope to continue my journey, learning, growing, and doing GRAPE things in the years to come.
