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.

Want to know how I built this life with no formal education?

What does an administrative law judge do?

Administrative law judges (also called adjudicators or hearing officers) work for government agencies and make decisions regarding administrative activities. They work to resolve conflicts between government agencies and someone affected by its actions and decisions. They administer oaths, listen to testimonies, rule on questions of evidence, ask appropriate questions to assist with their decisions, and make decisions based on facts. Administrative judges often make decisions regarding the protection of the environment, a person’s eligibility for Social Security or other benefits, employment discrimination, enforcement of health and safety regulations, and compliance with economic regulatory requirements.
