Thank you! I'm just afraid that I will spend extra few months on it and there will be no happy ending again. I'm feeling motivated - so it may be good idea to try one more time :)
On the other hand since posting this I was reading about different approaches and how to monetise Open Source Project and cool alternative is GPL, and make it free for personal usage, but if someone would like to use it in commercially then he/she would have to pay money.

What is your end goal? To make more money? Because if that's the case then you should continue looking for investors or mentors who can help you making a business out of it.

Which option is more aligned with what you really want?

At the beginning it was money but when it became realistic I realised how big the risk is. Right now the goal is more to do something important that I can be proud of. Thanks for answer because defining the goal is really important! :)
