Working Lives Athens: Entrepreneur

Six people from very different backgrounds in Athens talk about their lives.

Entrepreneur and social activist George Vernicos is a descendant of a seafaring family from the island of Sifnos.

His love of the sea has led him to buy, sell and charter yachts, in what he describes as a "yachting paradise".

The crisis has affected his business, but he believes it is part of the cycle of good times and bad times and that Greece and the rest of the world is facing hard times right now - but that it will eventually pass.
