Another not so super good night. The loud party bass noise in the hotel or the underground discotheque was an obstacle for a calm sleep. That’s how I got up.

Thanks for reading.

I appreciate you.

This was day 10 of 120, I’m validating my 👷‍♂️ startup within 4 months while traveling and working (day job, voiceover). If there’s no market validation until Jun 1, 2019 the startup 🧟‍♂️ dies.
