David Dugan here.

Thanks for making the time to visit my website. I’m known as the Business Coach, Founder and Lead Mentor for Abundance Global and co-author of the book ‘Bullet Proof Business: Smart Strategies to Protect, Maximise and Accelerate Your Business.

I once heard that “success leaves clues” and after working with over 4100 entrepreneurs (1160 of which are one on one) I know the strategies that work and the ones that don’t. Knowing the most effective business strategies enables me to fast track the growth of an entrepreneur’s dream and to ‘Co-Pilot’ their business rather than them trying to work it out on their own.

These strategies remove the hassle and the sometimes-overwhelming burden from businesses to give them a simple, proven formula that’s easy to implement and more importantly: that works.

I’ve found 3 major problems facing entrepreneurs today:
1) They are just not profitable enough
2) They are not attracting and converting enough leads as effectively as they should
3) They are overwhelmed and frustrated about how to navigate through the first two problems, they don’t have enough time to critically think about the solutions or how to lead their team effectively to support them on the journey.

The end result is that really great people end up having a zombie business – a business that is half alive, half dead. It doesn’t have to be that way.

We work across a broad range of business types, from larger corporations to Small and Medium Sized Enterprises all of whom share one thing in common – they are committed to being their best and making a difference – which led to the creation of our Abundance Mastery mentoring and coaching services.

Are you ready to take your business to the next level? You are? Great! So am I.

I can help with all of the above and a lot more. All of the information is on my site. Or you can email me directly at daviddugan@abundance.global if you’d like to discuss working with us.

Hi David Book@2x
My Why

When the Magic Happens

During the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami, I was given a second chance at life. The helicopter I was supposed to be on crashed, and I lost 9 of my friends that day.

Afterwards, I was nothing short of devastated. But I realised that I had been beyond lucky. By simply missing a helicopter ride, the course of my life had been changed.

I had been given a second chance: a second life. From that day forward, I vowed to put people before profit. To strive not for influence, but impact.

I founded Abundance Global for that exact reason, to help entrepreneurs who are seeking to leave legacies not by their names, but through their businesses.

Because for me, that is the beauty of being an entrepreneur: Building something bigger than yourself.

This video shares my why and story further.
That’s when the magic happens.
