The beginning of a new year is the time to narrow down your bucket list. You can take your volunteer hours to turn your hobby into something bigger for your community. Some people decide to follow their dreams by creating a non-profit instead of a for profit business. Building a business doesn't have to be driven by the thought of going corporate or creating an international company. The work and time put into your project is the same. Instead of looking for a capital sponsor you will be seeking out grants or depend on fundraising. Turning your idea into a workable platform will take time and effort but you may find a non-profit more rewarding. Here is one example of a couple, Steve and Martha Vickery, who turned their interest into a local newspaper to support and share information about Korean culture and community.
