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 management accountant do?

Management accountants keep track of all the financial and tax activities of an organization. They keep the records of income, revenue, taxes, and other financial information. They are often involved in the development of new products and strategic planning activities. They are also concerned with cost management, budgeting, asset management, and performance evaluation. Management accountants evaluate and interpret essential financial information that organizations need to make executive decisions that look out for the best interest of the company. They prepare income statements, cash-flow statements, and balance sheets. They also prepare financial reports for others such as tax authorities, regulatory agencies, creditors, and stockholders. Management accountants often concentrate on a specific area such as tax accounting, cost accounting, and budget accounting.

What kind of training does a management accountant need?

Management accountants typically need at least a bachelor degree in accounting or related area. Many employers prefer applicants with a master degree in accounting or business administration. Many aspiring management accountants complete internships to gain practical experience while pursuing their education. Most management accountants are Certified Public Accountants (CPA). Some states and employers require the CPA designation. Many also gain the Certified Management Accountant (CMA) designation from the Institute of Management Accountants. The requirements include at least a bachelor degree, minimum work experience, and passing a four-part examination. Management accountants must stay up to date on the current advancements in the field and often complete continuing education and additional training throughout their careers.
