Our Sponsors

The sponsorship page is our way of showing appreciation to those who are committed to helping our community grow.  It is also a way for members in the community to know who the leaders in the community are so they can reach out for advice, guidance, coaching, conversation or any other need they may have.  We want our community members to have as many resources as possible to assist them in their growth.  Finally, it allows those members of the community to know what types of help and coaching they can receive outside the group by allowing those sponsors to list free and paid resources to assist them in their growth.

Abundant Marketing, Inc.

Ashley Morrison, CEO/President





Specialty: Websites, Social Media, and Event Marketing

 Abundant Marketing was founded on the principle that everyone is supposed to thrive in life, not just survive! We work with small businesses to create marketing strategies that are abundant! These strategies increase sales for the business and allow the owners to focus on the things that are most important to them.

Also, too many marketing firms are focused on the big companies and that leaves no one to help small businesses. Our owner and marketing team are passionate about filling that gap by helping small businesses grow while giving glory back to the Kingdom of God.
