Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

What does a conservation technician do?

Conservation technicians gather data on the size, condition, and components of a variety of environments such as forests, wetlands, fisheries, and marine habitats. They measure water, examine soil, collect data on organism populations, assess pollution, and supervise conservation operations. They also collect information on conditions that may pose as environmental and public hazards. Conservation technicians supervise activities that take place in environments to make sure they are not causing harm or damage to the environment. They manage conservation activities and provide information to the public and a variety of organizations about environmental protection. They often write detailed reports based on their findings.

Conservation technicians usually need at least a certificate or associate degree in applied science or related field. Some conservation technicians have a bachelor degree in conservation biology or similar field. A high school diploma and work experience may be sufficient for some positions. Conservation technicians must have a strong background in the physical sciences and mathematics. Some complete internships or obtain part-time jobs in the field to gain practical experience. Most employers provide on the job training to new conservation technicians where they observe and learn from experienced workers. Technicians with formal training require less on the job training.
