A review of my book by an independent Editor.
It can be purchased on Amazon.com books and Kindle.

Drug Testing Exposed Loopholes and Trade Secrets, by Michael Bonventre

T Horton- Editor

Overview
Overall the book is in excellent shape. It’s well-written, eye-opening and promises to be of use to a wide audience. You made it easy to keep an open mind with compelling examples. The book kept my interest and definitely challenged my perceptions of America’s drug issues.

Main Objective
The book not only reaches its objective of showing the flaws of both drug testing and prevention, but goes one step further by giving solutions and hope to all affected. Having been in the trenches, you write a compelling account of what goes wrong and how to make it right. The documentation you’ve included backs up your case and leaves no doubt about your expertise.
The “Fight Back” essay by Mike Levine is a great supplement to the book.

New Drug Business Sales Warnings! Warning, we are the first and oldest. Truth, I know professionals who started in the mid 1980’s. Warning, no one else has our protocols. Truth, everyone is required to follow DOT rules regulations and protocols. Warning, we have hundreds and thousands of franchised labs. Truth, you and I can’t just buy or franchise a DOT compliant laboratory. Warning, misleading gimmicks like industry accreditations, certificates of proficiency and claims of direct DOT recommended or associated trainers and offers of several certificate trainings in one day. Truth, accreditations are often just extra fees or requests of exclusivity for a meaningless paper certificate. DOT never endorses any private sector certification or drug collection providers of any kind. Proficiency can only be achieved with experience over time and you cannot buy quality certifications in bulk. Now a challenge Rapid Drug Test Systems has not found a new business opportunity that offers the experience, first hand quality training and personal follow-up support and mentoring than we offer in the USA. No hype, clever gimmicks, look-a-like misleading ads. Practical experience in business in general. growing up with a family business then as a consultant to federal, state, and county agencies nationwide in the drug and alcohol prevention industry since 1982 and the drug and alcohol testing and collection industry since 1999.

Embrace your competition. RDTS attributes its success to not only embracing the competition but trying hard to create competition quality employees and sub-contractors. As a consultant I could not find local drug and alcohol providers worthy of servicing my clients, so I started my own collection facility. When hiring employees I made it clear I was looking for someone who would strive to become a partner or better yet buy us out allowing me to once again return to business consulting exclusively. Growing up in a family business I knew this was not the time or the industry that lends itself to relying on unsupervised employees. RDTS has found a handful that have been able to meet the challenge. As a lifelong entrepreneur and consultant working in many diverse industries I find it extremely challenging to share my outlook of business as a fun, exciting and profitable board game. I have never been able to see a problem in any business. I am only capable of seeing solutions. Growing up I was surrounded by successful entrepreneurs 20 Years my senior with mostly limited formal education and a high level of basic work ethics, common sense and understanding of customer service. The product really is irrelevant. There are very few basic components to all costumer service, retail and wholesale industries. If you are not attempting space exploration, brain surgery or navigating the judicial system business in general and especially the drug and alcohol prevention, testing and rehabilitation industry truly can be no brainers.

A review of my book Drug Testing Exposed from a former franchise owner turned self employed entrepreneur. Michael, I read your book with great interest. After the first few pages, I quickly realized that you actually speak to the reader rather than tell your story. You want to inform and protect others, in particular the innocent newcomer. I want to congratulate you for the courage to telling the truth about the drug testing and the drug business, in general. You’ve probably heard this from many others but… here it is again: I really wish people having interest in getting into this business will read your book first and foremost. And I really wish there are other people like you in this business, i.e., courageous, no non-sense and with high business ethics and personal integrity. Newcomers should be particularly aware of self-proclaimed “experts” thirsty not for helping others but making money. Red flag: Memorizing 49-CFR Part 40 will make one an expert in drug testing by as much as memorizing the Bible will make one a prophet. My advice to prospects and newcomers? Read Michael’s book back-and-forth several times.

RDTS is preparing to expand its inspirational business consulting, mentoring and seminars for all businesses new and struggling in 2014.“Business Success, If You Are Thirsty For Success RDTS Will Show You To The Water! The Question Is Will You Drink?” Mike Bonventre has worked with countless diversified new and struggling business owners professionally since 1982. Mike found his niche in the drug prevention and testing industry in 1999 and will share how he continues to recue failing business owners and launch successful new business Entrepreneurs in the corporate and private sectors. In 2013 RDTS discouraged more than a dozen business owners from giving up on their existing businesses to start drug testing businesses. Mike Bonventre will share proven techniques used by some of the world’s leading inspirational mentors and business experts. Words of wisdom from one of Dr. Wayne W. Dyers many NY Times Best Selling books, Everyday Wisdom for Success “When you argue for your limitations, all you get are your limitations.” Mike Bonventre was born into a family business. Growing up as a child Mike was raised to believe anything is possible if you believe in it and you are not harming anyone else in the process. As a pre-teen Mike created his first new businesses as a means to obtain what his parents would not buy him and he could not afford himself.(His first mini-bike) Mike seems to struggle with only two things. The first is finding a business that he cannot bring back into the black. The second is finding a business owner who is willing to release the unnecessary burdens of procrastination, doubt, fear and negative influences that encourage self fulfilled failure.

i3screen is selling RDTS lab and MRO services for less than the labs were selling directly after 14 years of growing business. i3screen also has a great variety of systems, training and referrals to background check suppliers and much much much more. Customer service is also great. By the way RDTS does not profit financially for passing on huge savings and ethical advice, RDTS franchise alternative creates true entrepreneurs with no middlemen raising the cost of doing business. RDTS provides business consulting and coaching with no restrictions and no endless contractual financial obligations. Reselling TPA services is FPA (Fourth Party Administration) or greedy profiteering.

Financial markets, oil, threat of war, global unrest and the sky is falling rollercoaster have been happening for decades. Relax! Illegal drugs have been our biggest consistent import for decades. Tons of illegal drugs to the tune of billions of dollars cross our borders everyday. Prescription drug abuse, addiction and workplace accidents, theft and corruption associated with all of these have been and will provide a strong growing market for years to come. Home invasions and youth addiction are on the rise and there is no end in sight. Drug testing, background checks and DNA testing are and will continue to be the fastest growing and secure industry in the US for decades to come. Entrepreneurs see drug testing as the new gold rush with mother load veins in every inch of the US. Check out RDTS Business Opportunity (Franchise Alternative). RDTS is the only Business Opportunity provider that qualifies its potential clients based on ability to succeed rather the ability to pay.

As a business consultant I am pleased that I have made so many friends. However I believe business consulting is a lot like parenting. I do the best I can to make sure my clients are successful in their business goals. Friendship is a bi-product of successful consulting. I never tell my clients what they want to hear unless it is what they need to hear to be the best they can be. Those who struggle are much like children who refuse to take advice from their experienced elders. May only the guilty be offended! There are always exceptions to the rule and there certainly are mega lottery winners. If business is slow promote. If you are losing clients stop promoting and fix the problems within.

32 years consulting, government, state, county agencies and general private sector businesses and 15 years finding a niche in consulting drug and alcohol testing businesses reveals consistency in success, struggling and failure. Business is so simple it is almost unbelievable to those of us who get it. This weekend I reconnected with several past associates and thoroughly enjoyed the instant reconnect and mutual respect we have for each other. We also unanimously share frustration with the inability of so many to understand the basics of business which prevents us from expanding. The drug and alcohol testing industry is truly one of the easiest and most lucrative industries with nothing but growth and diversity in the future for decades to come.

I just received my ISBN-13: 978-1499150438 for my new book Failure Eludes Me. I am working on the sub-title, cover and finishing the content. It is a review of 32 years of consulting businesses, families and communities nationwide. Why some always succeed, others struggle endlessly and many fail. I will share how I struggle to fail at anything I try and how you too can succeed at anything you decide to do.

RDTS isn’t afraid to spend money to prove a point and update fresh knowledge. After 32 years as a business consultant since my father retired well at age 48 and 14 years of word of mouth referrals and free blog, linked-in and website success with RDTS we decided to buy leads solely to settle a decades old debate. Sometimes you have to see if things change with technology. My father told me 40 years ago you cannot and will never buy good customers or clients. You must earn them. Every 5 years or so I invest a few thousand dollars in continuing education hoping technology as changed to help a little. Last year we signed up with a company I thought had a better concept for qualifying leads. The people at that company were and still are very dedicated to this concept of finding qualified leads. However after one year a couple thousand dollars and approximately 190 leads we received only one client. He failed only in part because his financer backed out after teasing him with partial and manipulated investment dollars. We both new within days of his commitment his investor would put him under. We also purchased 5 million e-mails from another company. Only1 50,000 e-mails seemed to actually be sent with absolutely no return. All this of course after 32 years of seeing clients consistently fail at buying clients rather than earning them. I consistently advise clients not to waste their time and money on this type of client hunting. In the end I believe a good consultant must periodically invest to renew his/her firsthand knowledge and not go into the future preaching about out dated experiences. My investments over the past year were a great refresher course. Although I hate reporting the results to my father I get a kick out of the smirk on his 80 year old face and a loving I told you son, some things will never change response.

As I am working on my new book Failure Eludes Me, I was introduced to another book. Own IT! Author Tabatha Coffey says it like it is. It is all about taking responsibility. Warning! I find it hard to read because she uses foul language excessively. Her writing style is honest, accurate and straight forward TOUGH LOVE that any street walking drunken sailor would find socially acceptable. I highly recommend the message if you can get passed the excessive foul language. I am glad I bought the book and even happier I agree with her message and did not have to suffer through each and every word and page. Many of the struggling clients I have worked with probably wouldn't benefit from it anyway but certainly may have related to this type of approach. My book will be beneficial for a more mature socially acceptable reader. I don't believe in talking down to or humiliating other human beings for any reason. I give the message 5 stars.

RDTS is offering a $5,000 discount to 5 new business start-ups with specific criteria. As part of our research and development program to provide superior training RDTS will accept 6 trial participants. We have scheduled the first Skype training for the end of May. The first participants are an existing provider of lab services, non DOT drug and alcohol collections, phlebotomy and much more. These participants are currently established in two states. RDTS is looking for one more similar existing industry related business that wants to add DOT collections to its existing services. RDTS is looking for two participants with no prior business experience and two with strictly management experience in any industry. RDTS has researched, participated in and consulted Skype, mass certified and other on line participants in order to perfect the concept. The problems have been narrowed down to participant co-operation and discipline, *collector experience and the logistics of multiple student interactive participation and time constraints. RDTS will only train one company at a time with no more than 4 students per company per training. To date RDTS has experienced great results with Skype/Go-To-Meeting follow-up consulting internationally.

Rapid Drug Test Systems

Karl Hardy

General Manager at Workcare NZ

Morning for me afternoon for you Mike,

I finally got time to read your book Mike, I started Wednesday, and finished it Thursday, could not put it down.

I found myself smiling from time to time and calling Nicky over and reading paragraphs to her.

I have now made it compulsory for all my team to read, so that we all understand that the testing is a small part of the process, the training of the collectors and what effect we are having on the community is the real reward.

Our processes are slightly different especially around alcohol testing, but we have the same issues, we now have collectors courses that are 4hrs long and then you are a trained collector, no training is needed for alcohol testing, these are run by individuals who have little if any knowledge of the industry and if anything is devaluing what we are trying to achieve.
I am currently in discussion with an organisation on how we can remedy this, this also needs to be ongoing training as well.

We need to change, look at how we can help not just take, rehabilitation is the key.
Over the years I have seen and keep seeing different organisations trying to deal with these issues, I am glad to say that the majority here in NZ do have a willing to help but are working alone.
The most common is the Police and Army working together to help bring teenagers into line by giving them discipline, something that you have identified in your book is all they are really doing is removing their enablers, once this course is over yes you have well groomed polite young men and women with self-respect and confidence and then we give them back to the people who broke them without any instructions on what to do, educating families and communities is the key.

Your book has strengthened and reinforced this and made me more determined to challenge others who see this as only revenue gathering.

“Take away the enablers”“Take away the demand” putting the dealers out of business”.

“For Evil to triumph good men must do nothing”

Regards and thanks,

Karl
