Hard Work Is The Key For Father And Son Locksmith Tandem
Manhattan – October 17, 2014 – Hard work is the key, says Phil Mortillaro and his son Philip Mortillaro Jr. These father and son duos are both locksmiths and together, they run the Greenwich Locksmiths in Manhattan.
Other locksmith companies like Gronbek Locksmiths would definitely agree with them. Hard work is not only the key to a company’s success, it is also the sustenance that a company needs in order to maintain that success.
Phil Mortillaro, now 64, has been in the locksmith business for a very long time. In fact, he had started this career ever since he dropped out of school when he was in Eighth Grade. Phil said that his dropping out school was a fate that he could never have escaped because he was one of those kids who attend the first day but will only be seen once more during Christmas time that is why he was always told that he had to repeat grades.
But if you think that Eighth Grade may be a tad bit too young to be starting a career in the locksmith industry, you would be surprised to know that his son, Philip Mortillaro Jr. had started at a younger age.
The 27-year old locksmith said that he has been doing it ever since he had learned to walk.
Philip says that he has always been fascinated by the kind of work that his father does and that had probably led him on the same path. He said that he had always admired at how people loved his that not only because he is a kind and caring person but also because of his ability to fix problems where no other locksmith was able to do so.
To further solidify his son’s remarks, Phil says that he always had an inherent desire for solving problems and making himself useful because that is how he deems his worth.
Although when he was young himself, Phil was often compared by his dad to his cousin who was an accountant. But nevertheless, that didn’t stop him from doing what he likes and what he does best.
Philip, on the other hand, says that he could not have asked for a better father who has raised 5 kids of his own even though he is a dropout.
You could really feel the love and admiration the son has for his father.
