Peter Egan is a 31 year old entrepreneur (medical equipment, supplies and supplements) from Long Beach, Mississippi.

    

Peter Egan is a 32 year old entrepreneur who resides in Long Beach, Mississippi. He owns a retail business specializing in medical equipment & supplies including incontinence products, mobility aids and bathroom safety devices; as well as nutritional supplements, maternity supports, postpartum and baby care products.

Peter began writing professionally in 1999 at the age of 17 during his senior year of high school. After being taught how to write effectively by one Andre LeBlanc of Covington, Louisiana, he took a job as a sports stringer and feature writer for a publication then known as The NewsBanner, a local newspaper that now goes by the name of St. Tammany News.

Mr. LeBlanc was Peter's high school English teacher during his junior and senior years of high school. He was particularly tough on Peter, who excelled enough that his teacher held him to a higher standard than the majority of his peers, a decision that profoundly influenced Peter's development as a writer and started him on the career path on which he now finds himself.

During the summer of 2005, Peter began selling tourist trinkets from the French Market in downtown New Orleans online, primarily using Ebay. His efforts were an immediate success, and by late August his efforts to increase his spending money had become a full-blown business.

The success was short lived, as August 29 of that year the levees broke, flooding New Orleans, destroying nearly 20 outgoing shipments Peter had delivered to the post office prior to evacuating, and shutting down his supply chain.

The setback didn't last long. After power was restored near the hospital in Covington, Louisiana in mid-September, Peter was back at it - only this time with a different product line. Instead of voodoo dolls, feather masks and Mardi Gras beads, Peter staked a claim to a retail medical equipment store in Covington, LA.

At the time, the store was owned by a division of Peter father's Metairie and Covington, Louisiana home health care company. He rebranded his Ebay Store to accommodate the new line of product, and began listing all of the items stocked within the store, writing unique product descriptions for each and every one.

As time went on and sales increased - eventually surpassing the store itself and later all four of the companies retail storefronts - Peter began to teach himself website design, online marketing strategies and related skills necessary to grow his web-based business. By Christmas of 2005, his company had attained the #1 overall spot in Yahoo and MSN search for the term "medical equipment", and was highly visible for a number of product-specific terms and phrases, resulting in a rapid increase in sales for which the company was unprepared.

After deciding to return to college to complete his degree, Peter turned over the business to his father's company, and the sales eventually slowed. The store was closed less than two years later.

However, the man who started it all didn't miss a beat. He went on to found GoDotYourself.com, a domain registrar and web hosting firm that specializes in DIY website and e-commerce software, while simultaneously developing a number of health, medicine and nutrition-related websites.

The very first of these was a site built for his mother, Pamela Egan, who now is a world-famous health columnist and nurse practitioner who specializes in anti-aging and preventive care.

Pamela was the first-ever journalist or health columnist to report on the scientific breakthrough regarding the distinction between two forms of vitamin D known as vitamin D2 and D3, respectively. It was her that first reported that the latter, vitamin D3, which is obtained through exposure to sunlight, is vastly superior to D2, which is synthetic and manufactured from botanical ingredients. Whereas D2 offers few health benefits when ingested orally as a supplement, D3 has been shown to reverse Vitamin D Deficiency, which has been scientifically linked to increased odds for developing close to 50 different illnesses, diseases and conditions.

At the time NP Egan's story first broke, D2 was the form used in virtually all multivitamin and nutritional supplements, while D3 was still relatively obscure. As a result of her reporting, the tables have been completely reversed with regard to the prevalence of D3 versus D2 in foods and supplements. Now, it is virtually impossible to find D2 in supplement form in developed countries, although a small handful of supplement manufacturers do still use it in their products.

Peter first published Pam's article, which was originally written and published in a local newspaper now known as the St. Tammany News, on her website. Word got around, and her article has now been plagiarized thousands of times by thousands of different journalists, bloggers and websites. However, NP Egan became famous in the process, and is now widely regarded as among the nation's premiere health columnists and experts in nutrition, anti-aging and preventive medicine.

These days, NP Egan writes almost exclusively for her own website and blog, as she is very busy seeing patients and managing her two businesses: the Egan Wellness and Anti-Aging Clinic and the Egan Skin Care Spa of Covington.

Due to his vast knowledge and experience with healthcare, medicine and nutrition-related topics resulting from growing up in a family in which every member works as some sort of healthcare professional, the vast majority of Peter's writing involves topics related to health, wellness, nutrition and medicine. While he lacks the initials that appear after the names of doctors and nurse practitioners, he is nonetheless extraordinarily knowledgable and qualified to write about the aforementioned topics.



Birth Place: New Orleans, LA United States

Accomplishments: Peter has built a burgeoning media empire that begin will less than $200 in start-up capital that now boasts more than a dozen websites in addition to his executive position in the medical equipment firm founded by his father.
