WHAT IS DAYTIPPER ?
Every one of us is an expert on something. Chances are, through trial and error, hard work, or blind luck, you have learned something practical. Something that has helped make your life a little easier. It saved you time. It saved you money. Maybe it saved your marriage; maybe your life.
What you discovered is too helpful to keep to yourself. You want to share it. You think, “Others should benefit from this.”
Now you can help others help themselves.
Welcome to Daytipper . Every day, content is added to this site that has helped someone before. The content here can help you. The editorial staff at Daytipper does not create the content found on this site. People like you do.
If you have a tip that is insightful, helpful, and original, we will publish it. You write the content. We share it with the world.
WHO IS DAYTIPPER ?
Daytipper was established in 2005 by colleagues that share a common goal: develop a service that allows the global community to submit and share tips, information, advice, and ideas. Founded by experienced veterans of the Internet and publishing industries, our mission is two-fold: assemble a popular and useful collection of tips, and allow everyone to contribute.
Nathan Preheim, Principal
Product Management, Strategic Planning & Business Operations
Prior to founding Daytipper, Nathan worked as a project manager for a variety of pioneering Internet dot com’s in San Francisco (Bigstep) and Santa Barbara (SupplySolution, DigitalMed). Leading teams, providing direction, and ensuring client satisfaction were his primary tasks.
Nathan started Daytipper because he believes that many people have personal anecdotes that they are willing to share, but lack an easy method to do so.
Nathan is a graduate of Creighton University and the University of Nebraska and holds degrees in psychology, management of information systems, and planning.
