You know what I like about this business?

If you're good at it, treat people like you like to be treated, and conduct
business responsibly, you'll do well in the locksmith business.
You don't have to gouge people, and you don't have to give your work away
for next to nothing. Ironically, those are two of the fastest ways to put
yourself out of business.
If you stick it to a customer, you'll probably never hear from them again.
OTOH, if you cut your fellow locksmiths' throat on pricing you'll get all
the bottom feeding, haggle-ya-down, PITA customers you can handle. (Not all
repeat business is _good_ repeat business)
Now... Are locksmiths expensive? The good ones are. If you're good, you
don't have to be cheap. If you're cheap, you don't have to be good.
If you simply charge what you're worth and know your craft, you'll never
have to rip off the customer to succeed. Never.
Just some thoughts,
