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 logger do?

Loggers cut down and harvest trees to produce timber for many different purposes such as the manufacturing of a variety of industrial and consumer products. They fell trees in certain directions, remove branches and leaves, and measure and cut trees into logs. They then load the logs into vehicles to transport to a variety of locations such as sawmills. They use a variety of equipment such as axes, chainsaws, wedges, winches, and heavy machinery. Some loggers assess the logging conditions before performing their activities and others clear areas of brush to prepare for logging tasks. Loggers also maintain and repair logging equipment. Most loggers work for large lumber companies or individuals that are self-employed and run their own logging business.

What kind of training does a logger need?

Loggers typically need at least a high school diploma, but many employers prefer candidates with previous experience in the logging field. Many states offer training programs for loggers. Prospective loggers typically complete courses in environmental compliance, business management, safety, wetlands, reforestation, and endangered species. Some programs grant professional logger certification. Loggers typically learn their skills through on the job training. They learn the characteristics and hazards related to the forest environment and how to operate a variety of logging machines and equipment. Employers also provide intensive safety training. New loggers usually follow experienced workers and then move on to independent tasks after they gain the necessary skills and experience. Loggers complete additional training as needed throughout their careers.

What are the prospects for a career as a logger?

Employment of loggers is expected to grow more slowly than average for all professions, increasing 6% from 2008 to 2018 (1). The consolidation of the logging industry and increased foreign competition will contribute to the slow job growth.

Job prospects should be good because most job openings will arise from the need to replace loggers that retire, transfer, or leave the occupation for other reasons.

How much do loggers make?

As of February 2010, the middle 50% of loggers earn annual salaries between $30,862 and $37,243. The top 10% earn annual salaries of more than $41,452 (2).

A career as a logger is a great choice for people with a strong interest in logging and performing a variety of tasks. Loggers must have a solid understanding of the concepts, rules, and procedures of cutting down and harvesting trees. Physical stamina, patience, determination, eye-hand coordination, and good judgment are necessary characteristics. Loggers must have good communication and the ability to work as part of a team. They must enjoy working outdoors on a daily basis in many types of weather conditions. They must also be quick on their feet and make effective decisions in hazardous situations.
