While completing his medical degree at Tulane Medical School, Dr. Mark McKenna realized that it would be difficult to make a sufficient income as a physician. As a result, he looked to go on to another field shortly after completing medical school. In 1999, Dr. Mark McKenna looked to build a real estate business so that he can establish long term wealth. Due to Hurricane Katrina, his business lost millions of dollars and he therefore had to rebuild his fortune. He would achieve this by investing in low priced homes and renting them out. Mark then moved to Atlanta, Georgia and opened up a business called ShapeMed which offered a number of cosmetic treatments such as Botox injections, laser hair removal and nutrition counseling. In 2015, Mark sold off the business and eventually started up a new venture known as OVME. This is an application that allows individuals to contact freelance Botox practitioners to provide injections on demand. It is known as the Uber of Botox treatment.
Dr. Mark McKenna decided to go on to business after medical school because he saw how his father was dealing with medical billing and reimbursement. Mark realized that his father was having difficulty collecting income in a timely manner and his practice was being negatively affected as a result. Due to this factor, Mark decided to invest in real estate during medical school.
In order to afford to invest in real estate as a student, Dr. Mark McKenna would work at prisons conducting physicals for a wage of $50 per hour. With the income he made at this, he would then use all of his income to acquire properties and take in the profits.
After completing medical school, Dr. Mark McKenna would work at his father’s general practice for five years. During this time, he would invest in more real estate and build a fortune. Real estate gave Mark a more fulfilling career because it allowed him to engage other parts of his brain and thinking.
Dr, McKenna would eventually start up OVME which would allow Botox patients a more convenient way of getting injections. The OVME venture would allow patients to contact OVME providers and then get their needed injections. This business venture has so far been a huge success for Mark.
