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 glazier do?

Glaziers work with many different types of glass for a variety of purposes. They work with glass in residential and commercial structures. Residential glaziers replace glass in windows, fit glass for tables and displays, and install glass showers, mirrors, and bathtub spaces. Commercial glaziers install heavy glass for windows, room dividers, glass panels, and displays. Some glaziers work with marble, granite, plastic, and other related materials that are used as substitutes for glass. They also install laminates and films that improve the safety and durability of glass. Glaziers put glass in place and secure it with moldings, putty, paste-like cement, mastic, metal clips, rubber gaskets, or glazing compound. Glaziers cut glass using glass cutters and a straightedge. They also use oil, suction cups, glazing knives, grinders, saws, and drills. Some also use computers to improve their techniques and reduce the amount of glass that is wasted.

What kind of training does a glazier need?

Glaziers usually gain their skills through on the job training. Some complete formal training or apprenticeship programs. Generally 3 years of classroom instruction and on the job training is required to become a skilled glazier. Many aspiring glaziers attend community colleges or vocational and technical schools. Students usually receive instruction on blueprint reading, glass and installation techniques, general construction methods, safety practices, basic mathematics, and first aid. Some employers offer formal apprenticeships that combine classroom instruction and paid practical experience. Glaziers usually begin their careers completing simple tasks and move on to more advanced work as they gain experience.

What are the prospects for a career as a glazier?

Employment of glaziers is expected to grow about as fast as average for all professions, increasing 12% from 2006 to 2016 (1). The increase in residential and nonresidential construction will drive job growth.

Job prospects are expected to be good especially for glaziers with a wide range of skills. Some job openings will arise from the need to replace glaziers who retire, transfer, or leave the field for other reasons.

As of November 2009, the middle 50% of glaziers earn annual salaries between $31,155 and $45,240. The top 10% earn annual salaries of more than $52,178 (2).

Glaziers must have good physical fitness, eye-hand coordination, manual dexterity, and good balance skills. Problem solving skills and ability to work accurately and quickly are also desirable characteristics. Glaziers must have excellent communication and interpersonal skills because they frequently interact with a variety of customers and other professionals.
