The Abundance Group

About

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 25 planners across 4 states - grossing over $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.




With ashley and dale by your side, YOU CAN BUILD YOUR TEAM. YOU CAN LIVE YOUR DREAM. AND HAVE A WHOLE LOT OF FUN while DOING IT!

"Before working with The Abundance Group I didn't want to be a boss...

Now after I have gone through the Intensive, TAG showed me that the way I was previously trained to be a boss isn't the only way and that I can be kind and empathetic and still be a boss. I cannot wait to hire my team!"

Megan R.

"I struggled with the competence of my own ability to do build a team and be a good leader...

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!"

Kristy S.

"I couldn't have done it without this incredible program!"

Before the BYT Intensive, I was unsure of how to start building my team. But now, after the program, I am more prepared for a financial, process, and legal perspective, and I have been able to craft a clear onboarding process that will set my future team up for success. 

Patrice M.

"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 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.

"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 can 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.

"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."

"Dale and Ashley are some of the most uplifting and supportive people we know!"

Before the Intensive, we weren't sure how to scale our business and what if would take to build a strong and healthy team. But since the program, we feel like a weight has been lifted off our shoulders. We were given clear guidance and resources to build our team- from finances to leadership training, the BYT Intensive covers it all.

Amanda & Mary

"Before the Intensive I had 1 full time employee, so I felt the Intensive was going to be too robust for me. 

I felt like I just needed a few questions answered and that the Intensive wasn't necessary. After months of avoiding it, I kept seeing the Intensive everywhere so I figured it was a sign and I should just join. I am absolutely so glad that I did! It helped me find the right hires, made me more confident in my interviews and offer letters. During the intensive I actually hired 2 more people because I was that fired up. If you have any hesitancy about the BYT, just do it. You won't regret it!

Bianca T.

"Building a team felt super overwhelming, and I worried about getting all the moving parts “right”.

Luckily, this program will thoughtfully guide you through a holistic hiring process - covering everything you’ve likely thought about, and more importantly, everything you don’t even know you should be thinking about. If you’re ready to grow your team, don’t do it without Ashley and Dale by your side!"

Sarah B.

"When I initially thought about growing my business I was terrified about where to begin, but this was absolutely fantastic!

With their calm approach, an excellent group of expert panelists and the one on one's with Dale...my fears subsided and I was able to get past my "what if's"! I HIGHLY recommend these amazing people to those looking to grow build their businesses!"

Krista D.

"Within the first three weeks, I hired a Social Media Manager AND an Online Business Manager.

Now, half way through the intensive, I am in the process of hiring our day-of team--following Ashley and Dale's tried-and-true hiring and onboarding process. The Intensive eliminated the clutter and late night hours spent researching the steps needed to take to grow a sustainable team."

Stephanie L.

"The weekly sessions keep me accountable and ensure I am intentional with this crazy scary task of creating & finding suitable team members.

I am super excited to implement these lessons into MGWD, and it is also incredibly reassuring knowing that Ashley & Dale are very much involved and supportive along the way."

Michelle G.

"Ashley and Dale are GOLD!

All the help and knowledge they bring to the table when beginning the process of building a team is priceless. I loved that not only could you participate during the intensive but you can go back videos and information whenever you need to."

Dana A.

"I now have a team of 5, and I'm very grateful for everything I learned with them.

​​I really enjoyed working with Ashley and Dale. They both bring the hands-on experience in creating and managing a team plus all the leadership insights. They also bring other experts to the course."

Esme K.

"I have learned so much and am eager to put everything into practice.

I love being a part of the team-building intensive! Ashley & Dale have concrete steps to follow and practical, real-life advice to give."

Christa G.

"We spent over a year dreaming about building a team, but were frozen by fear and what ifs.

The Intensive was the ultimate resource to answer questions of all capacities about the myriad of facets to running a team. The only way to step past that fear was to feel like we had the support of those with experience in our corner and that's exactly what The Intensive did for us!"

Cayla & David

"The Abundance Group demystified the entire process and made it, dare I say, fun?!"

The complexities and legalities of growing a team were overwhelming. I so desperately wanted to do it right, but really had no idea what I was doing besides having hired a few interns. They are wonderful coaches who truly care about the professionals in their program. I am so grateful for the successful team I’ve built because of TAG’s help.

Kay N.

"I went in with so many questions about starting my team. I now feel equipped to do so, and to do it well!

It’s full of actionable information, real-life business examples, expert speakers and real-time coaching with Ashley and Dale. The connections in the group are invaluable. I truly have a team and support system while growing my own planning team, and feel empowered and educated to make it happen!"

Erica B.

"The Building your Team Intensive was the answer to my prayers and future plans. 

They encouraged us to not be afraid to implement while learning. In mid-June, I started the employee search process and am happy to report that I will be hiring a handful of applicants to be Lead Planners and Assistants. We will be totally ready for the Wedding Boom in Atlanta, GA."

Irene T.

"If you want to build a team, this is the course for you! 

It's a great intensive to be a part of for businesses that want to grow their team, but don't know where to start. It was very informative and Dale & Ashley were always available for questions and help, which was truly beneficial."

Erica T.

"It's actually the first mastermind that I've purchased that I feel like I got exactly what I expected!

I was looking for a relatively quick, jam-packed, off-to-the-races type of course and I feel like that's what I got. In 12 weeks I was able to build out an entire hiring, training, and leadership development program for my team."

Alexis B.

"Being a part of The Abundance Group was exactly what I needed to upscale my business.

I knew I was at the point of needing help, but had no idea where to begin. Ashley and her Dads knowledge to guide you in the right direction is unparalleled. They also nail the off the wall questions you throw at them too "

Kelly R.

"I will be forever grateful for this program!

Before The Abundance Group Intensive, I was completely lost in my business and didn’t know which direction to go. I knew I wanted to grow my team but had no clue how. Dale + Ashley answered all of the questions I had and more that I didn’t know that I needed to ask. They gave me the confidence to grow my business and team the proper way!"

Rachel H.

"Joining The Abundance Group was one of the best decisions I made for my business.

Being able to join a class and ask questions live was a huge help. I do not think that I would be where I am at with my team if it wasn't for this course. I am now confident in my interview process and love my training process because of this course. I highly recommend working with this team if you can."

Liz C.

"The Build Your Team Intensive Workshop with Ashley and Dale far exceeded expectations!

The tools they provide are exceptional! Highly recommend to any company looking to scale up with confidence! Thank you Ashley and Dale!"
