Dr. Mark McKenna is the perfect example of an individual that has an entrepreneur spirit. McKenna’s business side blossomed while he was earning his medical degree from the Tulane School of Medicine. As he was getting his education, he watched his father’s income as a general physician decline due to how insurance companies were changing reimbursement procedures. McKenna realized then that in order to truly have the lifestyle that he desired, that he would have to supplement his income. Before graduating with his doctorate in medicine, Dr. Mark McKenna had already purchased several real estate properties.
After graduation,Dr. Mark McKenna went on to build a successful real estate company. He later had to rebuild the company due to losses from Hurricane Katrina and he later sold the company. His next venture was developing a group of offices called ShapeMed in which individuals could get aesthetic services. Just like his previous ventures, he was successful at this and later sold the chain of offices to a fitness giant for the huge sum of 4.4 million dollars. This was the money that he has used to fund his current business venture.
Like ShapeMed, his current venture is based around aesthetic services. Unlike, ShapeMed though he is moving the concept away from the normal landscape of what the typical aesthetic service center looks like and how it operates into a completely new dimension. This time he is not only creating plush, luxurious offices to obtain the treatments in, but he is also working on an app that will allow the consumer to seek out aesthetic practitioners, that are willing to make house calls to complete the services in the privacy of one’s home.
