Warp 501(c)(3): Engage

Progress Report #17

Progress reports are Giving Jar’s way of celebrating Success, learning from Failure, giving Thanks, and taking a peek at what’s Up and Coming. Hopefully, you will find this progress report informative. As always, all feedback is welcome!


Here are the major wins in this progress report:

  1. Spotlighted Hospice of Lansing.
  2. Applied for 501(c)(3) online.
  3. Opened a checking account!
  4. More software design work.


Failure is okay if you learn from it. Here are some lessons learned in the past two weeks:

  • Sometimes thinking interferes with doing. Don’t overthink.
  • In software, there’s no such thing as a perfect solution.
