I was attracted to Traveling Vineyard because of the product, who doesn’t love wine? I made the decision to join after learning that I could have a flexible schedule and conduct wine tastings when it worked for me. At that time my boys were nine months and three years old and I needed and wanted a way to earn extra cash for our family while still being able to stay home with the kids. My boys are now 10 and 13, and we all enjoy the flexibility that my schedule offers so we can take day trips to the water park, take our kayaks on the lake to catch some fish, and I can chaperone school field trips. Traveling Vineyard—through my wine tastings, company-sponsored training events, and people that I’ve met within the company—has helped me grow as a mom, wife, friend, entrepreneur, and person. I have gained confidence, leadership and communication skills and a whole new level of appreciation for wine and food. I joined for the financial reward, but I’ve stayed because of the fun, flexibility and friendships.
