Pet Peeves at ValueMags
Dealing with pet peeves is never easy. Some are small and manageable and others can absolutely take over your life. At ValueMags, President Andrew Degenholtz has decided that he wants to be more tolerable of ignorance. One of the many pet peeves that Degenholtz has in common with his team (researchers and marketers) is stupidity.
Many of the decisions taken by individuals in this world is fueled by stupidity. Stupidity can arguable be the equivalent of not being educated well or enough. Degenholtz wants to battle his pet peeve by enabling individuals to educate themselves.
A lot of what we learn comes from our parents so educators are not always the ones to blame. Degenholtz wants to find, and if there is none out there, create a magazine that teaches individuals business protocols, common knowledge, methods of thinking and analyzing and work ethic. These are all categories that get taught differently from culture to culture or from individual to individual or do not get taught at all. However, nothing excuses ignorance. Understandably, if one is not educated, they are more likely to not be aware of current issues as well as bed side or able side manners. As iterate before though, for the most part, the child is not to blame. It is the educators and access to education in their environment and lives.
ValueMags is already the number one provider of free magazines in the United States. As a marketing company, it is there job to make the magazines they offer desirable and what better way to do it than to make them free? Therefore, ValueMags and Degenholtz want to use the same platform to offer a magazine to younger generations about things they need to know to survive in this world.
Pet peeves stem from being annoyed. Being annoyed not only comes back to you but the people around you who have a lack of respect or knowledge. If there is something that annoys you, make the people in your immediate environment aware and do something about it.
