    One of the first things I learned during a brief foray into charity work is that everyone wants to start his or her own nonprofit. Job candidates said it, volunteers said it, friends and strangers said it. Usually the conversation unfolded like this: Me: I’m working for a great nonprofit now. It’s called Helping Hands of Vegas Valley. (Shameless plug! Help senior citizens at HHOVV.org!) Altruist: That’s great. I want to start my own nonprofit someday.
