Dr. Mark McKenn, ALlittle Drummer of Entrepreneurs
There are always some people that decide that they follow their own hearts and minds. They listen to the little drummer in themselves and think that it is best to the follow that beat, no matter how many people think that they are wrong. Dr. Mark McKenna listens to the beat of his little drummer and has become a very successful entrepreneur.
Dr. Mark McKenna has been featured and interviewed on CBS TV and been given the nickname ‘Doctorpreneur.”
His journey to being a Doctorpreneur began when he was studying medicine at Tulane Medical School and felt that it is hard to be rich when a person becomes a doctor. After his five year experience as being a part of his father’s medical practice, he came to the conclusion that changes in billing had made it harder for doctors to make money.
He thought the way to make more money was to go into real estate. He would get $5ts0 an hour treating prison patients and used 100 percent of that money to invest in real estate. After medical school, he practiced medicine as well started a real estate company called McKenna Venture Investments. He was successful and was able to acquire two more companies called Universal Mortgage and Uptown Title.
In a few years, his company was composed of 50 employees that could offer finance, turnkey build and real estate services. Dr. Mark McKenna usually made 500,000 US dollars a year. All his businesses together were said to be worth somewhere between 4 and 5 US million dollars.
Like most Louisana real estate owners in 2005, he lost millions of dollars because of Hurricane Katrina. He haad d to leave New Orleans and his employees had to scatter throughout the nation.
Dr. Mark McKenna came back to New Orleans and took advantage of government subsidies to rebuild the city. He would use the money to design, build and flip properties. S
He then decided that real estate was not area to make a lot of money. He dissolved his company and made about 800,000 US dollars. He used that money to go into cosmetic surgery aaind started company called Shapemed that focused on treatments like laser hair removal, nutrition counseling and Botox injections.
His next big venture is to create an app called OVME. This app would help people contact conmetic surgeons and they would give a piece of what they make to Dr. Mark McKenna. It essentially would be the Uber of plastic/cosmetic surgery.
There is no doubt that Dr. Mark McKenna will be as successful with OVME as he has been with his other ventures.
