The Top 10 Business Audit

In 1995, BJ identified ten performance statements that would have a major impact on his business and his way of thinking. We have made these ten statements into a 3-minute Business Audit to be taken by each member of the management team to analyze your business each quarter.

You and your management team are invited to take this 3-minute Business Audit now. You will receive a score from 0-100 and be able to identify what is working in your business and what is not. This audit will document how your business stands today, giving you a benchmark to refer to as you grow your business.

Please enter your best work email to unlock the audit. Then rate each statement based on how true it is for your business. If the statement is 100% true, mark 5 stars. If the statement is 100% false, mark 1 star. All 10 statements must be rated to receive a score.
