PRLog - Feb. 7, 2012 - COVINGTON, La. -- A Louisiana firm specializing in the retail sales of medical supplies, equipment and nutritional products, experienced an unusually memorable sale yesterday - one that the company's owner and CEO Peter Egan Jr. believes is his firm's most memorable sale to-date.
Peter's medical equipment and supply company sold a maternity support known as a Prenatal Cradle (URL = http://www.eganmedical.com/
Normally, and for most people, this would probably be no big deal. Even if the woman was famous, which she is not, Egan would not publicize her name out of respect for her privacy, not to mention the fact that publicizing people's personal information - especially for retailers - is a really good way to get people to hate you. The sale had very little to do with the woman in fact, except for one thing - her geographical location.
No, the reason the company's founder and chief executive was so thrilled to learn of the sale is because Cape Girardeau is the hometown to the childhood hero of Peter Egan Jr. (URL = http://www.peteregan.org/
He distinctly recalls a conversation he had as a toddler while driving with his father to his dad's work back in 1988. Rush was on the radio talking about the upcoming Presidential election pitting George Herbert Walker Bush against Michael Dukakis. At one point following one of Rush's classic monologues, Peter Jr. asked his father: "Daddy, why doesn't Rush Limbaugh run for President?"
His father laughed off the question, explaining to his then eight-year-old son that Rush Limbaugh didn't WANT to be President. He had a better job. While his son had no way of making sense of that statement at time, he now uses the same line when people ask when he (Peter Jr.) will run for public office.
The reality is that Peter Egan Jr. has no more of an intention to run for public office than does Rush Limbaugh. However, Peter Junior's drive to succeed was a trait he picked up from three of the most influential individuals in his life: his mother Pamela (http://www.pamelaegan.com), his father Peter Sr., and Rush Hudson Limbaugh of Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
Much like Limbaugh, Egan grew bored with college (although he did ultimately make it farther than Limbaugh, opting against going back after Hurricane Katrina flooded the Tulane campus in the fall of 2005), eventually entering the private sector with every intention of doing things his way or no way at all, just like Rush. Also like Rush, Egan has been successful. While he doesn't make $50 million per year, he works hard every day and one day hopes to earn the kind of money that the man he grew up idolizing earns despite being grossly underpaid (Limbaugh grossly underpaid at roughly $50 million/year)
Egan Jr. is the executive director at Egan Medical, a retail medical equipment/supply start-up whose website first went live in May of 2011. While he earns a modest living, the path which brought him to this point is what he considers to be a success. He is completely self-taught with regard to the knowledge of website design and development, the necessary tools to enter the line of business (medical equipment) that Egan chose to pursue.
Egan is not active politically in the same manner as Limbaugh. His admiration for the man is more the result of his (Limbaugh's)
Egan Jr. looks forward to the day when his business has experienced success sufficient to enable his company to advertise on the Rush Limbaugh radio program.
