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 assault lawyer do?

Assault lawyers represent individuals that are victims of assault and people that are accused of the crime. They set up initial meetings to listen to and document the events occurring before, during, and after the assault. They also obtain reports that were filed about the incident and interview witnesses. They differentiate the facts from the allegations to create a strong case. Assault lawyers also provide emotional support to victims that are distraught. They help victims file restraining orders and seek counseling. Assault lawyers often deal with aggravated assault, actual physical harm, and threats with the intent to harm. They also handle domestic abuse and self-defense cases. Large firms often employ assault lawyers and some assault lawyers have small private practices.

Assault lawyers must have a 4 year college degree and 3 years of law school.
