2. What do they mean by earnings – is this turnover?
If earnings figure stated as £100k is turnover, then it has nothing to do with earnings!
Yes, some locksmiths can make a good living but it takes a lot of hard work, long hours, good business sense and a fair amount of good luck!
To expect these potentially high earnings immediately after undertaking a short locksmithing course is a bit foolhardy.
3. Time it takes to learn to be a locksmith
It takes a long time to learn any trade, especially becoming a locksmith, let alone establish a reputation that will help your earnings through repeat and referral business.
You should think of locksmithing as a long-term career rather than a get rich quick scheme.
If you wish to earn a good salary as a Locksmith it will take a lot of hard work to build up that reputation.
