In working through the logistics of starting a business and preparing a business plan before November 30 to present to a panel of investors, I’ve asked for a lot of advice. Stephanie Nelson, founder of couponmom.com, urged me not to apply for 501(c)3 status through the IRS. She asked me if I knew the story of Wikipedia. I didn’t until she told me how founder Jimmy Wales could have struck gold had he involved advertisers on the site. I’m thankful for the selflessness of Wales and Wikipedia, and that trait is hard to come by. I feel strongly about the sacrifice made to change the world, and donated $20.
