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 author do?

An author is someone who creates an original piece of written work for a book, article, magazine, journal, company newsletter, advertisement, online publication, motion picture, radio and television broadcast, and other publications. They produce a broad variety of written materials that are presented to a target audience in an increasing variety of ways. They create content using a variety of multimedia formats. Authors’ works are generally classified as fiction or nonfiction.

Authors often work with editors and publishers throughout the process of writing to review topics, edits, and schedules of production. Authors typically conduct the research on their topics through interviews, library and Internet research, and personal observation.

What kind of training does an author need?

Authors typically need a college degree and writing experience. Some employers prefer a broad background in liberal arts. Other employers seek individuals who have bachelor degrees in English, journalism, or communications. Authors who specialize in a specific area should have a strong background in that particular area. Many aspiring authors interview well-known authors for advice and encouragement. Others may write for their school newspaper or other volunteer work to gain experience before starting their career. Many authors also regularly attend conferences and seminars for writing styles and ideas.

What are the prospects for a career as an author?

Employment of authors is projected to grow about as fast as average for all occupations, increasing 10% from 2006 to 2016 (1).

Job prospects are expected be favorable and will be the best for authors with training in a specialized field. Demand for authors with expertise in areas such as medicine, law, or economics is projected to increase due to the on-going expansion of technical and scientific information that needs to be communicated to the public. Some job opportunities will also arise to replace people retiring, transferring to another field, or leaving the field for other reasons.

How much do authors make?

As of July 2009, authors with less than 1 year experience earn annual salaries around $40,000. Those with 1 to 4 years experience earn annual salaries around $41,419 and those with 5 to 9 years experience earn around $53,638 a year (2).

A career as an author is a great choice for individuals who have a passion for writing and can express their ideas logically and clearly. Perseverance, creativity, self-motivation, a broad range of knowledge, and curiosity are also valuable qualities of authors. Authors must also demonstrate a strong sense of ethics and good judgment in making the decision of what material to publish. Working under pressure and having the ability to effectively concentrate are also essential.
