NZ locksmith finds key to success
Ted Ellens was struggling to pay his bills and working three part-time jobs to keep his locksmith business afloat. The 70-year-old used to jump-start cars and worked as a cleaner at Renwick Kindergarten to supplement his income running Marlborough Mobile Locksmiths.
