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 pharmacist do?

Pharmacists fill and distribute prescription medications to individuals. They take prescription requests from health care providers and assess the safety and effectiveness of the medication. They provide drug information to the patient and talk to them about the appropriate use and the possible side effects. They provide advice to patients, doctors, and other health personnel on the choice, dosages, interactions, and side effects of prescription drugs. Pharmacists also keep an eye on the progress and health of patients to make sure the medication is effective and used safely.

Pharmacists also advise patients on the use of over-the-counter medications and on general health topics such as exercise, diet, and management of stress. Some pharmacists offer specialized services to help patients with certain conditions such as smoking cessation, diabetes, high blood pressure, or asthma.

What kind of training does a pharmacist need?

Pharmacists must obtain a Pharm.D. degree from a school of pharmacy or college that is accredited. The Pharmacy College Admissions Test (PCAT) is required for most Pharm. D. programs. Pharmacy schools and colleges are designed to provide students with instruction on all concepts of drug therapy. The programs consist of classroom instruction and hands-on experience in many different pharmacy practice settings. A licensed pharmacist always supervises students.

All states require pharmacists to be licensed. Licensing requirements include graduating from an accredited college of pharmacy and passing many examinations. The North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam (NAPLEX) is required by all states. Majority of states require the Multistate Pharmacy Jurisprudence Exam (MPJE). The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) administers both exams. Additional exams are required in some states.

What are the prospects for a career as a pharmacist?

Employment of pharmacists is projected to grow much faster than average for all professions, increasing 22% from 2006 to 2016 (1). The increased demand for prescription drugs and aging population will fuel job growth.

Job prospects are expected to be excellent due to rapid job growth and the need to replace pharmacists who retire or leave the field for other reasons.

How much do pharmacists make?

As of September 2009, the middle 50% of pharmacists earned annual salaries between $101,653 and $113,437. The highest 10% earned annual salaries of more than $118,585 (2).

A career as a pharmacist is a great choice for people who are interested in helping people with prescription medications. Pharmacists must have scientific talent and the ability to solve problems in effective ways. Great communication and excellent interpersonal skills are essential. Pharmacists must also pay close attention to detail and make good decisions because they are dealing with patients’ health and lives.
