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 rehab nurse do?

Rehab nurses provide care to patients suffering from chronic illnesses, debilitating injuries, and other conditions. They care for patients who have suffered from a stroke, traumatic accident, paralyzing injury, and spinal disease. They help patients transition back into their daily activities and lead active and independent lives. They develop individual care plans that set rehabilitative goals and ways to achieve those goals. They provide the necessary support throughout treatment and follow-up care to ensure the patient reaches their full recovery potential. Rehab nurses also provide education to patients, families, and caregivers regarding restorative care and maintenance of health.
