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.

There are many different kinds of articles typically employed by major newspapers and magazines including executive editor, assistant editor, assignment editor, managing editor, and copy editor. In smaller companies and organizations a single editor usually does most of the work or shares the responsibilities with a few other employees.

What are the prospects for a career as an editor?

Employment of editors is projected to grow about as fast as average for all professions, increasing 10% from 2006 to 2016 (1). Demand for magazines, newspapers, and online publications will drive growth.

Job prospects are expected to be good, especially for those with technical experience and specialized training. Job opportunities will also arise from the need to replace editors who retire or leave the field for other reasons.

How much do editors make?

As of August 2009, the middle 50% of editors earned annual salaries between $45,206 and $61,257. The highest 10% earned annual salaries of more than $68,342 (2).

A career as an editor is an excellent choice for people who enjoy writing and can express their ideas in a clear and logical manner. Self-motivation, good judgment, creativity, perseverance, curiosity, and a broad range of knowledge are also valued qualities. A strong sense of ethics, ability to work under pressure, tact, and ability to guide and encourage others are essential skills.
