"Take the Intensive...it's intense, but in the best way possible!

The Intensive was exactly what I needed to help wrap my head around everything that I needed to think of/do in order to grow my business into a team. I now have a team and know how to accurately approach contractors/employee contracts, payroll, what I can afford to pay and all those tiny little details that we originally think we don't know how to do."

Kelly K.

"Ashley and Dale are a dynamic duo! They seriously thought of everything for this course!

The tools they have provided are invaluable and I'm so excited to implement everything I have learned to continue to build a larger team and continue to strengthen my already existing team. If you are looking to build a team, this course is a no brainer!"

Krista D.

"Joining the Intensive has been one of the best decisions I've made for my business. 

Before joining, I felt so overwhelmed with the thought of hiring and onboarding. Now, I have a clear roadmap to guide me through the process and a support system available every step of the way!"

Desiree W.

"I have taken a few intensives in my day and no other program has given me the take-aways like TAG did.

I really needed a program with tools to grow my team, learn the options I had with the team, and really approach my business in a smart way to set myself up for success. Ashley and Dale balance each other perfectly in this program; I felt like I was getting a 2-in-1 approach."

Michelle V.

"From practical tools to mindset and brainstorming opportunities, it was a comprehensive training on how to be successful with a team.

This was one of the best business decisions I have made so far! I was at the very beginning stages of having a team when I started it, and Ashley and Dale went through everything I needed to set my company up the best way for my vision."

Jenny A. 

"This program is a true blessing and a resource that I know I can always refer back to as I add new team members and continue to dream big.

I knew that if I wanted to scale up without losing my mind and also service my clients well, I needed to bring in some help. Ashley and Dale covered all of the bases from mindset, to hiring, to leadership skills...they were an open book with NO FLUFF!"

Janel H.

"Since being a member of the TAG family, I have taken more action with my business, have become more visible, and have generated more qualified leads.

This was one of the best decisions I have made for my business. Ashley and Dale really care about their members and genuinely want you to succeed! The Abundance Group really lives up to its name!"

Josie C.

"Joining TAG a few months ago was a leap of faith that now feels like one of the best business decisions I’ve made

I’ve been delighted by the level of support and the depth of their services. I believe they are truly interested in getting to know me and my business, and want to help me design my personal roadmap for success. So glad to have a team to share the wins and help wade through the tough moments."

Susan K.

"I was flying by the seat of my pants in the first 6 years of running my wedding planning business, but once Ashley introduced TAG, I knew I had to jump in!

I trusted Ashley because of the successful businesses she’s worked on outside of TAG. My business has grown and added new team members since my TAG investment! I’m so grateful I joined!"

Laine P.

"I highly recommend investing in TAG.

When I first started my business, I had no idea what I was really getting myself into. And now that I’m a working mom, I want to make decisions that are smart for my business and family. Having a mentor like Ashley to run to with dire questions while gaining direction and confidence was imperative to my business success."

"I'm not sure I can afford a team..."

Can You Afford NOT to have a team? Aren't you already passing up clients because you can only take on the work of one person? Aren't you giving away thousands each time you tell a client you are booked? This is the investment NOW to make you money in the future.

Using only 8 metrics in your business, we'll model taking you from solopreneur to six-figure streamlined team.  You don't have to build your team alone, wondering which important considerations you may be missing.  We'll walk you through each step of planning for and building your team.  

"How do I know if it's the Right Time?"

Ultimately that is up to YOU. You can spend months (or YEARS) of your life trying to piece this program together on your own.

OR You can let us take 30 hours to teach you all of the ins + outs we've learned. YOU can put our expertise to work for you.

"I'm not sure I trust someone with my brand..."

We want you and your business to have a huge impact, and you can only really do that by surrounding yourself with the right people.  We teach you leadership strategies that will help you:
  • systematize your processes so they can be easily and consistently repeated
  • find the right team members
  • manage and train your team to serve as an extension of the amazing business you've built so far.

When we're done, you'll wonder how you ever did it all alone, and why you waited so long to build your team.  Your team will be equipped with all the skills they'll need to run your business as if you are working alongside them.
