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.

Want to know how I built this life with no formal education?

What does a farmer do?

Farmers own and operate a variety of farms. They make executive decisions and determine the best time to plant seeds, apply chemicals and fertilizers, and harvest and market crops. They carefully plan the mixture of crops they grow and consistently monitor the changing prices of the crops. Farmers sell their crops to individuals at Farmers’ Markets and to food-processing companies. They also often use computers to store their inventory and financial records and manage farming operation such as dairy and breeding. Crop farmers grow a variety of crops such as cotton, grain, vegetables and fruit. They make sure the crops are stored, packaged, and marketed. Livestock, poultry, and dairy farmers care for animals and supervise breeding and marketing tasks.

What kind of training does a farmer need?

Most farmers gain their skills from growing up or working on farms, but many farmers have associate or bachelor degrees in agriculture, farm management, or other related fields. Aspiring farmers often complete courses in agriculture, agronomy, horticulture, dairy science, animal science and crop and fruit science. Farming students learn the technical knowledge of crops, conditions for growing, and diseases of plants. Many new farmers work with experienced farmers during their education to gain practical experience. Some complete formal apprenticeships after graduation. Farmers must stay up to date on the advances in the field both in the United States and globally.

What are the prospects for a career as a farmer?

Employment of farmers is projected to decline moderately, decreasing 8% from 2006 to 2016 (1). The consolidation of farms will drive employment decline.

Despite employment decline, job prospects are expected to be favorable especially for farmers who grow corn for ethanol production and those who grow crops for landscaping. There will be some job openings due to the need to replace farmers that retire or leave the field for other reasons.

How much do farmers make?

As of October 2009, farmers with 1 to 4 years experience earn average annual salaries between $23,966 and $50,000. Those with 5 to 9 years experience earn average annual salaries between $22,506 and $57,500 (2).

A career as a farmer is a great choice for individuals who have a strong interest in a variety of farming activities. Farmers must be able to successful organize and operate a variety of farms. They must be able to grow and care for a variety of crops and animals and keep accurate financial records. Patience, determination, perseverance, and good problem solving skills are essential. Farmers must also have good communication and interpersonal skills to work with a variety of consumers and professionals when marketing and selling their products.
