    I believe it's the right thing to do given the circumstances. Next week will be my last week at work. They told me they are sad I am leaving but they respect my decision.

    To be honest I don't think I can live in one place for long (I have commitment issues with countries too hahahahaha) Hopefully, this venture will be successful in the long term and give me the opportunity to scale it to other countries (so I can travel too lol).

    When I quit my job in Athens I didnít know I will end up in London and do everything I did. It was the best decision Iíve ever made so far. With a bit of luck and a ton of work this venture could lead to something even better. Fingers crossed lol

    Tough future ahead. I made an online survey to find out what people think about a piece of software like the one I have on my mind. I sent it to all my connections on LinkedIn who are in the tourism industry and to all the hotels in London. This far I only got one reply. Awesome :(

    I spoke with one guy from the sales department that we talk from time to time and is about the same age . It seems I am doing the right thing, although the right thing seems insurmountable right now. He advised me to speak with the a senior salesman, so I found David and booked a meeting with him the next few days. The salesmen I met so far told me the hustling thing is the most difficult part and it's very very very difficult.

    Strange is the fact that the most negative person about my decision is my brother. He tells me I don't know what I am doing and things do not work like this and I will not be able to persuade people etc. He made me second-guess myself yesterday. He called me at 1am at night to destroy my night. And you know, at night you feel emotions a lot more. I am fully aware I don't know what I am doing but I am learning. I think the most difficult part will be the emotional pressure.

    Funny, but people who are closest to you will often be your biggest naysayers. It's counter intuitive really. Understand that caring breeds fear and you are launching into something uncertain....so they fear for you and thus the negativity and trying to talk you out of it. In their mind, they are being supportive, just not in the way that you need. You can either be blunt and tell your brother what you need from him instead or you can learn how to tune that stuff out and hang up faster. What you can't afford is let it get to you. You are in charge of your emotions and either you control them or they will ruin you.

    They say he wants to invest in the tourism industry, and Turkey is really cheap right now. Apparently this will affect Greece as well (and the tech industry for hospitality- I am sure he is already developing apps for the hospitality sector). And one of the reasons I am going back is because Greece has less competition than the UK lol . I should go to his yacht and pitch my business idea hahahaha

    My manager praised me yesterday how fast I close tickets. Aaaaaaaaaaa I don't want to close tickets, I want a yacht. Where is my yacht? Ahahahahahaha
