The Abundance Group


At The Abundance Group (TAG), we know how to help you build a dependable, efficient team —
because we’ve built our own and helped hundreds others build theirs.

While Ashley's wedding planning business has grown into a team of over 30 planners across 6 locations - grossing over $5.5 million in sales (and counting), it definitely didn't start that way.

Once her workload had outgrown the number of hours available in the day, Ashley knew the only way to grow her business and regain a sense of balance was to grow a team. Sound familiar?

Luckily, Ashley's dad, Dale, a highly-coveted leadership development coach for some of the largest fortune 500 companies, was there to guide her in scaling the company she's built today.

After 8 years of scaling her business, The Simply Elegant Group, and over a quaint dinner (cheeseburgers of course, Dale’s favorite) they realized that the next chapter of both of their careers was surrounding small business owners and getting them the support they deserved. So they started to pursue two dreams at once, coaching small business owners around their teams, and starting a business together.

The Abundance Group isn't just a coaching company, it's a life long passion project for two entrepreneurs whose heart is to give the sense of freedom to as many small businesses as possible.
