"When we decided to have Charles conduct a Needs Assessment Study for our business group, we were concerned
about four problem areas affecting daily operation and productivity. As a result of his recommendations, we have
elected to have an on-going consultative relationship with him so that the success of making necessary changes will
be more assured. The services he provided have helped jump start a process that will ultimately result in a more
profitable, efficient and effective business. We would highly recommend his services to any business, large or small,
in order to get to the heart of problems and to be able to move into a positive, solution-oriented mode."

"I purchased your whole selection of tapes as well as your Workbook, "STRESS: Playing the Game of Russian
Roulette" and it was the best investment I've ever made. I can't believe how much more balanced my life has been ever
since I started using your materials and I will continue to use them throughout my retirement." John Ferguson, Retired
"We are truly grateful for being introduced to you and your services. As business owners, we often get caught up in the
'Big Picture' and sometimes forget the things that are key to our success: our employees. Making sure that
communication is open and training is on-going are important essentials that are needed in every business. You
provided us with excellent tools which have helped us set many new procedures in place. We found that your approach
is wonderfully simple, yet very powerful. Our Staff had no problems being open and honest with you. This process
provided you information that, in turn, helped us identlfy each of our Staff Members' unique value in their current roles.
Your techniques allowed us to re-discover the true value of our business; it lies within our Staff and their confidence in
their roles within our company. We cannot overstate the value of a 'team' environment within our business and thank you
for helping us create just that." Corinne and Don Bates, The Floor Trader, North Port

maintain that focus in order to stay in my zone. There's no question that my golf game has improved greatly
using your techniques. Larry Santucci, Golfing Partner
"His workshops provided teachers with information, discussion and techniques they need to deal with children in
today's classrooms. Participants rated his sessions as exceeding their expectations. 'His knowledge of children's
behavior and his experiences was the highlight of his presentation' wrote one participant. I would highly
recommend Mr. Bonasera as a presenter. His expertise will most certainly help teachers understand and meet
the needs of their students." Sandra Falsioni, Director, Lackawanna Teacher Center
"Thank you for the most valuable assistance tendered our Faculty Committee concerned with conflict resolution.
Your astute perception of the behavioral manifestations which get in the way of productive communication was
at the center of a spirited effort by the Committee to implement techniques for improving communication
throughout the District." Joseph Ventura, Superintendent of Schools, Tuchahoe Union Free School District
"Although I'm not a golfer...I play squash...I decided to read Charles' book THE MENTAL SIDE OF GOLF" anyway. I
have been playing against an opponent for some while whom I could not beat on the court. After reading about half
of the book, I was able to beat him by one point. The next week, I read the second half of the book and I won once
again. I'm convinced that the focus of the book on the effective use of the mind was instrumental in my improvement
in play. I would highly recommend that everyone read the book to learn more about the principles and training
techniques that Charles offers to improve the use of the mind in whatever endeavor in which they might engage."
John Greer, President, US Credit Liquidators
"Although I am playing competitive tennis and receiving professional instruction, someone told me about your
working with athletes and how you help them to learn how to focus and not only go into their zone but stay there.
My problem was that I would get angry every time I made a mistake and couldn't get my mind off of it. Now I am
able to put it behind me and focus on my game...not the mistake or my opponent...MY GAME! Your recommendation
of spending time alone before a match and going into deep relaxation and visualizing my playing this opponent
really helps me not to be as nervous. Balaji Jothishankar, Aspiring Tennis Pro, age 13 & His Pro
"How to Stay Well and Live Life to the Fullest by Charles M Bonasera should be mandatory reading for us all. We
struggle for answers to life's questions and presto here it is. Charles has a gift at communicating the most complex
issues with the simpler ones in this well rounded, humorous, insightful and charming book. If I were an educator or
parent I would make this read a "must read". You'll save yourself a lot of grief and hardship if you take to heart all the
advice only someone of Charles experience, care and expertise can offer. I am so grateful to have stumbled across this
book and will cherish it for years to come.
Tracey Parnell, Career and Business Coach, CREATIVITY GUARANTEED
"I've talked with the players that I’m training for their involvement in the NFL combine about your Workshop and their
response was very positive. One of the players used your calming exercise before a radio interview and indicated
that it was very helpful. Overall, I was very pleased with your work with my players and I look forward to working with
you once again. I also want to add your name and services to my adjunct staff which will appear on my
website.” Coach Rich Lansky, CSCS, ACSM Optimum Performance Training Institute

"Many people have told me I needed to take the emotions out of business. However, I was unable to separate my
feelings from anything that I did in life. That's where Charles came in. Charles is a professional, intuitive and very well
rounded consultant that is very qualified to assist with the "EMOTIONAL" side of business. As a practicing occupational
therapist and business owner, I would highly recommend Charles' services to every business person that has a brain
and a heart." Jackie Brodsky Marr OT/L
