How do you bounce back from hardship? Dr. Mark McKenna is an excellent example of what it is like to comeback from having a hard time financially in business. The doctor built a successful real estate company in Louisiana. But when natural disaster Hurricane Katrina hit in the city of New Orleans in the 2000s, the real estate empire the doctor had built flooded with the rest of the city. So, he packed up and embarked on a new journey as an entrepreneur.
His next destination was Atlanta, Georgia. He saw that the market there was needing something. He created a boutique cosmetic facility to appeal to those wanting a variety of Botox treatments. Atlanta residents flocked to his medical practice. Because Dr. Mark McKenna was skilled in marketing. he grew the practice into a well known success in Atlanta. He did so well, his competitors were bitter with his success and went as far as writing fake negative reviews of the company. The negative reviews did not stick. Dr. Mark McKenna’s botox facility ShapeMed sold to fitness powerhouse Lifetime Fitness. After achieving a great feat like this, he had fully bounced back from the blows of Hurricane Katrina.
Dr. Mark McKenna did not always have his eyes set on becoming a business owner. He went to medical school at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. While in medical school, he worked for his father’s practice. It was then in med school, he began to see that type of money he wanted to make from himself would be hard to come by with the ways the world of medicine was changing. So, it was then he knew he would be an entrepreneur. He started dabbling around with real estate while still in college.
Today, Dr. Mark McKenna is still a hard working entrepreneur. His latest project is his new company called OVME. OVME will be a medical practice and marketplace for patients aiming to for the best possible cosmetic procedures and products available on the market.
