Build a team • Work less • Make more

Sound familiar?

Your business is making an impact on the world.

BUT DOING IT ALL ON YOUR OWN IS RUNNING YOUR LIFE INTO THE GROUND. HOW DO YOU..

Bring on people who love your company as much as you do?

Trust someone else with your brand's reputation?

Know your team will be hard-working, driven, and creative?

Have full confidence your team can execute without you.

When you build a team for your business, you get your balance back. Free up valuable brain space for dreaming, for strategizing, and for materializing the next phase of your journey.

Maybe you've even thought about building a team, but are paralyzed by the thought of making costly mistakes...

"Should I hire employees or independent contractors?"

Hiring isn't a good time for a game of eeny-meeny-miny-mo. Confidently make the right choice for your business, and avoid costly fines, back taxes, and legal fees.

"How do I know if I'm onboarding the right people?"

It’s important to onboard the right people to maintain great retention on your team, and so you don’t have to keep paying to train new team members. Remember, we're looking for more than just people we like.

"What kind of insurance will I need with a team?"

As your team evolves, so should your insurance.  Always be prepared so if something goes wrong or you need to create an exit strategy for a team member, you're not hit with unexpected out of pocket expenses.

"What if I'm not up to the task of both growing my business and leading a team?"

Don't risk declines in your business as your team experiences growing pains. It's important to remember to pour into your leadership skills so you can continue to positively influence your team and always have the opportunity to scale. 
 

Good news - You don't have to build your team alone!  Leave the overwhelm behind and let us guide you through setting your team up properly from the start.

You deserve to:

Work less. Make more.

We want you to take off on those weekends at the lake with your family without sacrificing your income or your brand.

Take a step back.

You’ve dreamed of earning a substantial income while doing work you’re passionate about. With a team, you can live that dream while breathing normally.

Become a respected leader.

Great leaders are really just great coaches. Once you discover how to coach your team, you can serve them and your clients well.

Apply for the intensive!

We teach you how to lead your team like an empowering coach, instead of an order-barking boss.

When you think of “leadership,” what pops into your mind? Professional growth seminars that come with a hefty price tag and too many growth charts and workflows to count? 

Complicated + boring = unattainable. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

That’s why we’ve developed the 12-week Building Your Team Intensive Program. Trust us, there are deep pitfalls to dodge when building your team — the kind of pitfalls that can ruin your business.

We want you and your business to have a huge impact, and you can do that by surrounding yourself with the right people.

Warning: Before you go on...

This program is not for you if you’re looking for the run of the mill internet course you’ll buy and never use.

The 12-week Building Your Team Intensive Program is a live coaching and accountability experience, where we teach you everything you need to know about growing a dependable, efficient, passionate team.

"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."
