What Others Are Saying

Amazing.  That’s the first word that comes to mind when I think about the impact Josh Tolley has.  Now, I want to share Josh with the world.

I have been to the “experts” like Tony Robbins, I have had a professional business coach for over a year, and I am part of a national franchise organization; I have learned more about business and success from Josh in two weeks than I have from all the previously mentioned.

The unique thing about Josh is he doesn’t just motivate, he gives you the real life tools on how to implement what he teaches.  He has helped us discover that our main source of income is, not what we have previously thought it was.  He has helped develop additional income sources that we had not tapped, he has empowered us to take advantage of what he calls “profit partners” which gave us a whole new look on what business to business can be, and he gave us great insight on managing a business from employees to time management.

Most importantly, he taught us how to generate revenue.  His teaching into how the mind of a customer really works goes beyond the soft “theories” that have been taught for decades and addresses the scientific process of the mind.  What he has to teach on the sales process is beyond what I have ever seen, and I have seen a lot.  His approach to strategy is beyond compare and should be implemented by every business.

Josh’s instruction goes beyond what passes for “training” these days (which is little more than canned motivational fluff) as he gives not only the real tools to success but then he teaches how to use those tools.  I have been to the “greats” and I can honestly say Josh blows them out of the water when it comes to real life application, our bottom line, cutting costs, increasing revenue, and strategic positioning.

I encourage anyone who wants to accomplish anything to take advantage of what Josh Tolley has to offer!  From personal growth to business success, what he has to offer can have a positive impact for everyone.

“maybe the most impactful words of wisdom that I have read (except for the Bible), as it pertains to my situation so completely.”
– Eric Business Owner
“Spending a couple hours with Josh touched my soul. A few years ago, my daughter died and at that time I had given up my dream in business and even my fitness and health goals. What Josh taught about life and priorities gave me back the past few years. I see now that I can still have the life I want while getting past the life I lost. I am forever thankful to what Josh teaches and recommend him to everyone.”


– Olympia E.
“In 30+ years of accounting and international banking consulting I have never met anyone as just plain smart as Josh Tolley. His business insights are beyond anything I have ever read or seminar I have ever attended. I can tell you, in over 30 years I have seen and heard all the “experts” and none of them can touch the real world practicality of what Josh teaches.”


Tom Caputo, Author: “You Don’t Have to Be Wealthy to Invest in Paradise”
“Thoroughly impressed. Good job on your speaking and writing. Very rarely do you find someone who can do both well.”

“There are thousands of people who want to be in radio, and a couple hundred make it. Out of that couple hundred only a small handful have what it takes to be a household name, you [Josh Tolley] will be a household name.”

Thank you for writing this book! Its an eye opening truth about the importance of family that goes against the grain of the everyday ‘norm’. It’s a motivational tool for all of us who want more than just the rat race! It truly is sad that when we complain about our jobs to those who love us we tend to hear those awful phrases we grew up with like “Welcome to the real world” or “join the club” INSTEAD of getting the support to fulfill our dreams of being free just because “its the way things are”. This book is a
great map to find that fire exit out of that “club” and I truly hope that people start using it! I love that it focuses so much on what NOT having a job can do for your family!

I feel the need today to e-mail you how I feel about your book I read. First I woke up with flu symptoms this morning and had to call in sick to work. Of course the owner answers the phone and is not happy. I have not called in sick for years. So sitting at home feeling guilty about calling him, I decided to start reading your book.

I am very glad I did. In fact I couldn’t stop until I finished the whole thing. I want to say thank you for helping my brain start thinking again. I feel I have been in a rut for years and I’m always dreaming about my wife and I having our own business together. I am so fired up. It felt like you were talking about my life sometimes. In fact the chapter “Get Rich Slow Schemes” scared the crap out of me.

When you actually stop and think about the economy and changing times, I don’t see how anyone can survive. I want to say thank you again, and for helping people see the truth about life when others try to cover it up. I give my boss 60+ hours a week of time that I have robbed my family of. Not anymore!!!! See you on the beach!

We all need to feel like we’re in charge. The concepts in Josh Tolley’s book can put you in charge of your OWN destiny. Just as in reading “The 4-Hour Workweek”, I found the walls of my mind had not only expanded, but had blown over and the ideas started to flow. Entrepreneurship is available to anyone is this country who wants it. You’re never too old. I highly recommend it and Josh’s book!
