How to Host Wine Parties for a Living

Direct sales have been an attractive business model for moms and others in need of both flexibility and extra income for a long time. In fact, you probably already know people who do direct sales without even knowing it. Have any friends who sell makeup or comfortable clothing or food containers on Facebook or out of their homes? Have you ever been to a party at a friend’s house and walked away with some great cooking supplies? Those are all direct sales businesses.

I recently learned about a new one and I think it may be the best idea yet. Traveling Vineyard is a direct sales company that allows people to earn a flexible income sharing their passion for wine with friends!

Yes, that’s right. WINE!

You already get together with your friends for a glass of wine anyway, so why not make some money doing it? Traveling Vineyard has more than 5,000 Wine Guides across the country that have discovered the fulfillment, friendship, flexibility, financial reward and fun that comes with educating others about great-tasting wines. They want to double that number, too, so they have made it easy for you to get involved.

As with all businesses, there is a small upfront investment. But, Traveling Vineyard provides you with all of the tools that you need to host your first tasting, and there are no sales quotas to meet or requirement to purchase inventory. Traveling Vineyard has a great product— award-winning wines that are sourced from grapes all over the world, and blended to perfection by their expert winemakers, so it practically sells itself.
