Being a single parent is pretty difficult. Well, pretty difficult is an understatement. You have to do such a balancing act between forging ahead with a career and taking care of children. It is a stressful act that is worthy of its own high-wire circus show.
There is this great job out there for single parents that can be used as a full-time career or a way to easily make some extra money. It allows you to dictate your own schedule around your children’s lives. It gets you away from the kids for a while to be amongst adults having fun. This job also gives you critical training and experience for a future career in the wine industry.
There is a company called Traveling Vineyard that hires wine guides. These wine guides are the companies salespeople on the ground. But the way that Traveling Vineyard wants you to sell wine is very different. They want you to go to parties and have fun.
It should all start with your own group of friends. Get them all over your house or one of your friend’s house. You can set up a theme party if you would like, or you can simply tell them that they are your guinea pigs for the night. That’s when you get to show off your Traveling Vineyard education after pouring all of your friends an award-winning glass of wine.
You get to walk your friends through the wine tasting process step by step. This is one of the best parts of the job because you get to see your friends eyes open up to new experiences. You get to turn your friends onto new wines they didn’t even know they liked. Then you just give them some information on how to order their favorite wines through Traveling Vineyard. You get a healthy cut of all the sales from the party.
It is up to you from there. Most wine guides get to host more parties because of word of mouth advertising. And you get to host these parties around your families schedule while continually raking in commissions.
