Statement on Working with Consensus

My work as a Locksmith requires me to do quite a bit of problem solving. Often I am presented with locks and situations that must be analyzed and a course of action that is favorable to the customer and producible by me. This requires a certain mental agility and tolerance for variety that I enjoy and that keeps me interested in my trade.

Relevant Analytic Skills for Commission

My business requires a lot of knowledge as there are quite a few different types of locks and systems in play. Sometimes I come across things I haven't seen before but still have to discover a way to make the mechanics work in a way that is favorable to the customer and cost efficient to me. This requires analysis, logic and reasoning and a bit of creativity or ingenuity to get things done.
