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 office manager do?

Office managers are responsible for ensuring office support staff are doing their jobs effectively and efficiently. They organize and plan work and supervise their staff assigned to complete the work. They know the strengths and weaknesses of all staff members and work with each individual to get the work completed in a timely and correct manner. They review each employee’s work and often conduct performance reviews periodically. They often recommend improvements and nominate employees for promotions or awards.

Office managers often interview and assess potential employees. They set up orientation and training sessions. They themselves often help train new employees on office procedures and equipment. Office managers sometimes serve as liaisons between the support staff and managerial, technical, or professional staff. They may be involved in employing new polices and changing the organization of the department. They also make sure that office equipment is working correctly and make arrangements for repairs or replacements when needed.

What kind of training does an office manager need?

Most employers require office managers to have postsecondary training. Many office managers have associate or bachelor degrees. They should also have a broad knowledge of how the computer system of the company or organization works. Most office managers are promoted from support workers within the company. Many years of on the job experience is typically the best preparation to become a manager. Office managers also typically attend in-house training sessions or complete time management, interpersonal relations, or project management courses.

What are the prospects for a career as an office manager?

Employment of office managers is projected to grow slower than average for all professions, increasing 6% from 2006 to 2016 (1).

Job prospects are expected to be fair with keen competition. Job opportunities will be the best for office managers with advanced education and extensive work experience. Many job openings will occur from the need to replace office managers who retire, transfer, or leave the field for other reasons.

How much do office managers make?

As of July 2009, the middle 50% of office managers earned annual salaries between $46,942 and $65,177. The highest 10% earned annual salaries of more than $74,234 (2).

A career as an office manager is a great choice for people with a strong interest to manage others. Office managers must have great leadership and motivation skills, strong ability to work as part of a team, good communication skills, pay close attention to detail and have excellent problem solving skills. They should also be confidence, determined, loyal, and have poise. The ability to effectively organize and coordinate work is also very important.
