Josh Oakes — Founder
The Sunshine Tribe
In 2007 Josh and his wife started a day tour company in Melbourne, Australia. They had no experience in tourism, no business experience, no networks or support and no funds. After 2 years of 60 hour weeks, they were taking home $20,000 a year and had nearly thrown in the towel more times than they could count.
Fast forward 7 years and they had grown that business to $2 million plus in revenue annually, before selling the company in 2017 for 7 figures. They achieved this without working themselves into an early grave – creating a great lifestyle where they stepped out, worked remotely, travelled 4-6 months of the year, enjoyed all the things that they love about life and empowered others to run their business as it grew.
Josh recently launched The Sunshine Tribe – helping tour and activity operators, and small tourism businesses across the globe build amazing businesses AND create awesome lives for themselves.
