Even though the doctor and entrepreneur, Dr. Mark McKenna, started out his journey through medical school he didn’t end up working in that field. Not only did he dip his toes into the realm of flipping real estate but he also started his own business. There were many ups and downs during his lifetime of working but this new business he is creating seems to be the most successful yet.
In the beginning Dr. Mark McKenna’s business of flipping houses in New Orleans, LA was turning a lot of profit. But, unfortunately nobody could have foreseen the devastation that Hurricane Katrina would have brought upon the city. Even though he tried to keep his business prospering through all of that, one thing he couldn’t keep it through was the collapse.
After Dr. Mark McKenna decided to wash his hands of that investment he turned his sight towards something different, after all he did have a doctorate degree. So he decided to set his sight on the new town of Atlanta, GA and open what he called a “fee-for-service” medical practice called ShapeMed. What that means is you were paying for exactly what you got with more focus towards wellness and aesthetics.
Although this business did very well, eventually, Dr. Mark McKenna decided to sell his business to big private equity firms. The business he is working on developing now called, OVME, is said to be going to be a huge success. Dr. Mark McKenna plans on trying to bring the availability of getting something like Botox right to your home using an app. People would be able to use this app from anywhere in the US.
Only time will tell how this new business venture will take off. But it Dr. Mark McKenna is a great example of how you can constantly grow yourself. He started out doing something as simple as flipping houses and eventually formed his own business that bring his medical background in sync with the business aspect.
