Crowdfunding: make it happen
Crowdfunding is a really interesting concept. A community of diverse people is able to give small money contributions to finance an interesting idea. The concept by it self it's so powerful that, small financial contributions from millions can turn into enough resources to transform an idea into an initial product. The internet and the communities all over internet are transforming the traditional economy and the society. Not too long ago, you had to have a background in business, experience and connections in order to become an entrepreneur in most cases. Today, you can make an idea real by only using your imagination and creativity to share with others what you want to do. If you, dear reader have an awesome idea, and think it can have a positive impact into others' lives, I encourage you to write it down. Make a short and nice video that can explain with a few words and images what you want to do. There are several platforms where you could present your idea for free. Who knows, this idea might even get a lot of support and attention. This idea might let you join the new era of independent and passionate entrepreneurs that are changing the world. Here are some of those websites where you could share your idea:
You might not have an idea yet, but you could also have a look at the websites and the projects others have. Find something that aligns with your mindset. Find something that you think can help to make the world a better place. You don't need to donate a lot of money, but the small contribution of thousands of people can turn into enough money to make someone else's dream become true. Money can't make you happy but the way you spend it actually can give you happiness:
If you have a project already or know about other websites for crowdfunding please share them with us.
