Josh Ochs

Hello, I'm Josh Ochs

I travel the country teaching 30,000 students how to be positive on social media (and I teach parents how to protect their students). I wrote a few digital safety books on Amazon and my message teaches people how to shine online.


My techniques help students use their devices with a purpose, not just a past time. My message shows students how to use social media to create a positive resume using their social media accounts that impress colleges and employers. I also speak to thousands of parents each year to bring them up to speed on how they can have a dialog with their kids about social media safety.
