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 an immunologist do?

Immunologists are physicians that are trained to prevent, diagnose, maintain, and treat a variety of conditions related to immune system. They treat patients with many different disorders such as asthma, allergies, allergic reactions, eczema, sinusitis, autoimmune diseases, and immunodeficiency conditions. They record extensive patient medical history and perform a variety of tests such as skin tests and blood tests to diagnose conditions.

Common treatments include allergy injections, medication, allergen immunotherapy, and counseling patients on avoiding allergens. Some immunologists specialize in a specific area such as pediatric immunology.

What kind of training does an immunologist need?

Immunologists must complete undergraduate education, a medical degree, and internship and residency training.
