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 fabricator do?

Fabricators use different materials to create a variety of products such as buildings and heavy equipment. They cut and shape steel and other metals using tools such as band saws, chop saws, torches, and water jet cutters. They read detailed blueprints on how to construct the product. They are also responsible for improving and repairing machines that are experiencing malfunctions. Fabricators commonly use welding to from products.

Some work with fiberglass and create products such as car parts and boat decks.

A career as a fabricator is an excellent choice for individuals with a strong interest in manufacturing and constructing products. Fabricators must have a mechanical aptitude and a strong understanding of how things work. They must be able to follow instructions carefully and accurately and be able to work quickly. Manual dexterity, motivation, and ability to carry out repetitive and complex tasks in a quick manner are desirable characteristics. Good physical stamina is also desired because fabricators often have to lift heavy objects. Fabricators who work with small parts need to have good vision. They must also have excellent communication and be able to work as part of a team.
