How Josh Kilby took his Real Estate Company from a Local Brand to a Global Brand




At just 23 years old, Josh Kilby decided to leave his 9-5 job as a bank teller and pursue a career in real estate in one of America’s hottest and most competitive real estate markets – Nashville, Tennessee. “I didn’t know anything about real estate at the time, but I do know one thing – no matter what you’re doing – if you have the work ethic, you will be successful”, Josh said. 

From Journey to Success

In his first 3 months, he sold $175,000 in real estate. In the next 3 months, he sold over $1million. In his first year, he profited over $150,000 which was 5 times his salary as a bank teller.

In 2019, Josh decided to take his real estate company from a local brand to a global brand. “I quickly learned the power of social media and what it can do for your business”, Josh said. He started posting about his journey on facebook and instagram and sharing inspiration to help other entrepreneurs. His creative content has grabbed the attention of people from all of the world. “I realized that it was impossible for me to go out and talk to 50,000 people in one day, but with social media I can share my message and reach 50,000 people in an hour”. 

Future Plans

So what’s next for you? Each day I wake up and I am obsessed with growing and helping others succeed. I continue to grow my brand and social presence and want to help more and more people create wealth through real estate just as I have. I love entrepreneurship and I’m on a mission to help the world see things through a different lens. I want the world to know that a college degree isn’t the magic pill. It’s not going to make you successful. The only thing that can make you successful is your work ethic. I went from $0 to over 6 figures in less than 6 months without a college degree or any previous experience. I did it solely with my work ethic and vision. We are living in a day and time where the middle class is disappearing which means you either sink or swim, and I refused to sink.

What to Consider Before Buying a Compact Tractor for Your Country Property




While some people dream of buying a home in a city or suburb, others dream of purchasing a home on a rural lot with acreage, a drilled well, and fruit trees. 

Rural living isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but there are some advantages to packing up and moving to the country. The air is cleaner, wildlife is abundant, and the population density is low. But leaving the conveniences of the cities or suburbs for a rural homestead means you’ll have a lot more on your daily to-do list than you ever thought possible.

One piece of equipment you’ll want is a tractor. A compact or sub-compact tractor will meet the needs of most landowners. Whether for mowing the lawn, tilling the garden, moving logs, or doing other things, a tractor can be a godsend when you relocate to the country.

Consider your use cases for a tractor to get the right one. While budgeting is vital, opt for quality over saving a few bucks. The right equipment will serve you and yours well for many years. Remember to buy from a tractor dealer selling top brands to get the product and service you need.

When looking for the right tractor for your homestead, here are some things to consider.


Horsepower is one of the things to consider before buying a tractor. When you visit a tractor dealership, tell the salesperson your use cases for a tractor. They’ll be able to recommend the horsepower range you need for a suitable compact or sub-compact tractor. Horsepower can go from the 20s to the 50s for a compact tractor or in the mid-20s for a sub-compact tractor. It doesn’t hurt to get more horsepower than you need now to meet potential future needs. 

You’ll also want to look at power take-off (PTO) horsepower. PTO horsepower describes the amount of power available to operate the tractor’s implements and attachments, while the engine horsepower describes the power the engine produces. You’ll want enough PTO horsepower to operate a tiller, snowblower, log splitter, or other attachments and implements.

Consider Implements and Attachments

While tractors are helpful, attachments and implements can make them more useful. Box blades, loaders, pellet forks, backhoes, plows, snowblowers, and rototillers are worth considering. 

Without the correct implements and attachments, country living can be a chore. Before buying a tractor, ensure it can operate the attachments and implements.

Consider the Size of the Property and Terrain

Consider the size of your property and the landscape conditions before buying a tractor. For instance, if you need to mow 10 acres, get a tractor with enough horsepower to keep up with your mowing needs. Getting the right compact or sub-compact tractor will allow you to use the implements and attachments required on your land.

Consider the Tires

Another consideration is the type of tires you put on your tractor. You’ll want appropriate tires whether you have a hilly, rocky, or flat terrain. The salespeople at whatever tractor dealership you patronize will be able to get you the right tires for your land. If you live in an area that gets a lot of snow in the winter, you might want to invest in multiple sets of tires.

Living in the country is an adventure unto itself. But chances are you won’t look back after taking the leap and leaving the city or the suburb behind. You shouldn’t, however, overlook the importance of getting the right equipment for your homestead. You won’t regret getting a tractor. But you should know what to look for in a tractor to get the right one for your rural property.
