If you are looking for someone who is a perfect example of what a true entrepreneur looks like, then you need to look no further then at Dr. Mark McKenna. McKenna was an exceptional student while enrolled at Tulane Medical School, but it wasn’t long before he quickly realized that in order to make money he would have to venture out beyond medicine. Even while he was still in medical school, he would moonlight at prisons doing physicals and invested every but of money that he made on the side into real estate.
He graduated with his medical degree in 1999 and did work a few years in his father’s practice, but it was not long before Dr. Mark McKenna turned all of his attention to building a successful real estate business. This business did suffer a huge hit from Hurricane Katrina though and McKenna lost millions due to damage from the storm. At this point in his life, McKenna decided to combine his medical background with his business spirit and created ShapeMed. ShapeMed was a set of offices that offered aesthetic treatments for those who wished to enhance their appearances. In 2015, he decided to sell the successful ShapeMed brand to a successful chain of gyms and that is when he came up with his newest business venture, OVME.
OVME, is a cosmetic medical office currently located in Atlanta, Georgia; however, Dr. Mark McKenna has the hope that eventually his idea will become a national chain of aesthetic medical offices. OVME will provide individualized aesthetic medical treatment for those consumers who wish to build their self-confidence. He also plans to eventually develop an application for smart devices, so that individuals can search for aesthetic practitioners that can complete simple treatments in the privacy of someone’s home.
Dr. Mark McKenna is a man of intelligence and of immense drive. If you need someone to look at as a role model for leading in the entrepreneur world, then McKenna is that person.
