The Traveling Vineyard Provides Home-Based Career Opportunities

Every year, more and more women are leaving the workforce in pursuit of non-traditional jobs they can do from home. Whether they want to spend more time with family, save money on childcare or say goodbye to a stressful commute ladies across the country are hitting the internet in search of a career that guarantees freedom and flexibility.

So, what’s an intelligent woman who wants to maximize her income potential without being tied to a traditional 9-5 job to do? That’s where the Traveling Vineyard comes in. The Traveling Vineyard offers a unique way to combine the joy of sharing a delicious glass of wine with great friends and the opportunity to make an impressive amount of cash. The Traveling Vineyard trains and supports independent representatives, called wine guides, who host sampling parties. Guests at the wine sampling parties can order bottles of wine along with accessories like openers and decanters. Unlike many other direct selling businesses, representatives don’t have to waste time hand delivering orders. The Traveling Vineyard takes care of everything including depositing a 15-35 percent commission into a wine guide’s bank account each month.

In case you’re wondering how easy it would be to sell wine, Americans consumed over 949 million gallons of wine last year. Wine is a billion dollar industry in the United States, why wouldn’t you want to get your fair share? The Traveling Vineyard isn’t one of those companies that force you to sell your friends and family a bunch of junk they don’t need. Twenty-one different wines are available in red, white and sweet and fizzy. The aromas and flavors are so delightful guests will be begging to know when your next wine sampling is, and with a price range between $15 and $25 a bottle, the Traveling Vineyard wines won’t break the bank either.

If you’re worried because you’re not exactly an expert when it comes to wine, don’t be. The Traveling Vineyard training process can turn anyone into a professional sommelier. Each wine guide receives a success kit upon registration that includes valuable educational materials and a cheat sheet on wine and food pairings. Each success kit also includes access to training videos, accounting software to track your earnings and a personal website.

The Traveling Vineyard start-up kit includes a success kit and everything a wine guide will need for their first two tastings. The kit costs less than $200, and wine guides make an average of over $400 at each tasting. If you feel like you have what it takes to become a wine guide, you can sign up here.

The Blend of Lives Riding the Greyhound Busses

Doug Levitt is an artist and a former journalist. He has spent the past 13 years of his life traveling across the United States of America using the bus line of Greyhound. In the United States that bus line is viewed as a very last resort. Doug Levitt, however, has travelled more than 120 000 miles across the United States in order to do enough research for his book called The Greyhound Diaries.

Over the course of his travel research, Doug Levitt has met people from the underbelly of America. He has travelled hours on end sitting next to ex-offenders who have just been released from jail, neo-Nazis, and more. Doug Levitt has travelled the United States of America from side to side more than 20 times in those 13 years.

One of the latest experiences that Doug Levitt had was to ride the Greyhound bus for 20 hours next to a Neo-Nazi. The man had a tattoo of Hitler, and a number of gang member tattoos as well. Doug Levitt is Jewish so sitting next to a neo-Nazi quite naturally was terrifying to him. The man actually offered Levitt a tuna sandwich and kipped on the floor so that Levitt could have a nap on the two seats a bit more comfortably. The man Levitt had to travel next to explained the way jail is like for convicts at length. He gave an extensive explanation on where convicts separate based on race among other things. Doug’s media blog.

Doug Levitt shares that he might be the only person on those busses that is taking the bus by choice and not because of necessity. He also shares that he is surrounded by the most overlooked people. Society turns their backs to the kinds of people that board the bus. Doug Levitt has been sitting among people coming from poverty and homelessness. Many people are runaways or former convicts, or are suffering from a mental illness and addiction. It is a blend of lives that can’t be found anywhere else. On the long bus journeys those people start peeling of the façade layer by layer and Doug Levitt can witness the real person who riding next to him.
