On returning to the United States, the two young people stopped by the US Embassy in Athens to check the conditions for foreigners to open a business in Greece. It proved a turning point in their lives. The person in charge of trade relations told them that everything was easy.

"It gave us wings," Craig said. A year later, he will realize that this was a "white" lie on the part of the commercial attaché, which had held back from them the truth about the work of the Greek public administration. "If someone had told us what we would have had to go through, we would have given up," he said of his misadventures with the local bureaucracy and added, "It was good that we did not know."
 
Now, Atlantis is set to be the best bookshop in the world according to The Guardian magazine, and enjoys thousands of visitors each year. Craig says every winter is a challenge to him and his friends due to the declining flow of tourists but hopes that one day he will be able to hand down the care of Atlantis to his children.

The essence of the TEDx Athens forum was to show the good examples of successful people regardless of the environment in which they develop. Whether positive practices have been designed to solve social and community problems or if they are the result of an internal necessity for proving oneself, they have become a successful business model that creates growth prospects at a personal level and contributes to the improvement of the environment as a whole. Personal stories of real people who dared to put all their efforts into an idea to make the world and themselves a little better.
