Written by Rick Libby on June 2, 2016
Fight Your Fears, Open an Opportunity
Starting anything new can be intimidating, especially if there are cautionary tales floating around. Direct sales fears are common – everyone’s heard a horror story or two about demanding quotas and event dead zones and the pressure to sell, sell, sell.
Fortunately, these fears are pretty easy to refute and the prize for facing your fear is a fun, financially rewarding job that can fill in the edges of your busy life or become a full-time career.
“In the last seven years, direct sales has grown almost 6% to a $34.5B industry.”

After all, there’s a reason the direct sales industry has seen steady growth over the last decade or so.
And that’s why some of our Wine Guides have come together to fight the fears with some facts about a direct sales business with Traveling Vineyard:

- No one in my area is going to be interested.
- This is going to overload my busy schedule.

- Good wine and good friends are irresistible everywhere.
- A flexible schedule and a fun job create a healthy balance.
- We’ll teach you everything you need to know about wine.
