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 a fish cleaner do?

Fish cleaners scale, cut, clean, and dress fish aboard ships, on shores, in retail markets, or in restaurants. They remove the scales, gills, head, and other parts of the fish that is inedible. They then cut the fish into fillets or steaks. They often wash off blood and use a variety of instruments including knives, scrapes, spoons, and burlap pieces. Fish cleaners that process fish aboard ships perform tasks immediately after fish are caught to preserve the freshness. Some fish cleaners work in retail markets and they clean fish according to the needs of customers. They clean, dress, wrap, and label fish for customers or to store.

There are typically no formal training requirements for fish cleaners because they usually learn their skills through on the job training. Training ranges anyways from a few days to several months, depending on the employer. Many employers prefer to hire workers with some type of related experience. Many new fish cleaners start out by working with experienced workers and then move on to independent tasks once they learn the necessary procedures and acquire the required skills. They learn the proper techniques and how to properly use and maintain tools and equipment. New fish cleaners typically begin by completing simple tasks and move on to more difficult duties as they gain experience. Fish cleaners complete additional training as needed throughout their careers to keep their skills up to date.
