👉🏻 So many business owners want to be working smarter but don’t know how
👉🏻 They feel like they spend so much time doing the menial work, and just want to get back to doing more of what they love
👉🏻 They are itching to scale in the most efficient way possible
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a plan to systemise so you can focus on what excites you?
Introducing - The BOSS Test YOUR SMART SYSTEMS PLAN
The BOSS Test is for you if you want to:
✔ Scale your business (and not burn out in the process)
✔ Ensure you are working SMART across your entire business
✔ Set your new business up for success
✔ Automate your processes so you can free up your time and make more money
✔ Be given clear action steps to help you up-level your systems
✔ Have a way to visually measure your progress over time
The BOSS Test is NOT for you if you are looking for:
❌ A magic bullet
The BOSS Test is not an easy fix! Rather, it is the beginning of a process. To truly improve your systems, you will have to implement the changes laid out in the report and do the work required.
❌ A bespoke systems solution.
While The BOSS Test will guide you on which Systems areas you need to improve, it will not tell you which specific systems to use, because there are no one-size-fits-all Systems solutions.
❌ Something you do once and file away in a drawer.
I mean, you could do that, but that’s not going to give you high value. The BOSS Test is designed as a working map, for action takers and people who want to scale their business.
What do you get when you take The BOSS Test?
An in-depth survey of 30 Business Systems Areas
Video Modules to help you understand the report and prioritise implementation

Each of your Systems is reviewed and assigned a colour-coded level…
What are the Levels?
The business levels used are based on the first 5 levels of Roger Hamilton’s Wealth dynamics:
The framework measures and assigns the performance of business systems according to the following criteria.
GREEN Level – Great Systems exist which are optimal for the size of the business, and are being used strategically with consistent monitoring.
YELLOW Level – Good Systems exist and are being used consistently. But, there is a key component missing, for example: regular reviews, strategy etc.
ORANGE Level – Systems exist but are used inconsistently, may be insufficient, or may be labour intensive/limited in scalability
RED Level – Systems exist but are insuffient
INFRARED Level – Systems don’t exist
After taking the test, you will be provided a personalised PDF report.
The BOSS Report is a helpful mix of Test results, suggested key actions/strategies, and workbook space to help you plan your Systems improvements.
Why it Works
✔ It provides a clear strategy and map for the up-levelling of your Systems
✔ It avoids wasting time and money implementing systems that haven’t been well thought out, aren’t strategic and don’t integrate with each other
✔ It gives you clear action steps to take for each of the 30 different systems areas
✔ It allows you to track your progress well over time
But I’m so busy, how will I have time to make the changes?
Great question, I’m glad you asked. If you are “too busy” this is the reason you need The BOSS Test.
Every business has parts that need improvement (including ours). Businesses change and morph continually so the businesses systems need constant reviewing.
The BOSS Test will help you work out which areas of the business are most important to prioritise.
Even though there are 30 areas we address, they are not all of equal importance. The BOSS Report will help you understand which are the most important areas for your business to upgrade first.
Then, if you’re busy, you can outsource this work to a team member, hire a consultant or a VA.
Without making systems changes though, it’s easy to get stuck in the unpleasant cycle of busy-ness and be unsuccessful at scaling.
