Virgil Winston: Marketing Guru

Who do you love? Come on…who do you really love? Yes, you love your spouse, kids, parents and friends. Yes, I know…they light up your life and complete you. But, between you and me…who do you really love? Yeah, that’s right. You love yourself, don’t you? We all do. Carly Simon was right, “we are so vain” and, yes, “I do think that song is about me.”

Ever since that first cave man stared into some pond, we’ve been looking for ways to admire ourselves, if not find ways to free unsightly pieces of spinach lodged between our teeth. Thankfully we discovered glass in 5000 B.C., which we were able to turn into the mirror in 3500 BC, which not coincidentally coincides with the first hair cut, not to mention the birth of the entire skin care industry.

Face it, we’re obsessed with mirrors, with an average 7.3 mirrors in each house, or 22.4 in the case of Jesse Jackson. Mirrors make great promotional or tradeshow gifts…and, fortunately, Rush Imprint has plenty to choose from, at all different price points. We have the Micro Mirror, Computer Memo Holder & Mirror and the Oval Translucent Sewing Kit & Mirror, which I hope I don’t have to tell you is NOT intended for facial surgery. And, of course, we have the deluxe Robot Series Compact Lighted Mirror, which is so beautiful it could turn a humble monk into Warren Beatty.

Go ahead, get a mirror and let the loving begin.

Now, I’m off to see Lil’ Kim, who I have yet to see since she was released from prison. Until next time, remember the words of Henry David Thoreau, “The question is not what you look at, but what you see.”
