Dr. Mark McKenna is a licensed medical doctor in medicine and surgery by Florida and Georgia State. He graduated from the University of Tulane and began practicing medicine with his father. It is at the time when he worked with his father that he launched the McKenna ventures investment. He later acquired the uptown title and universal mortgage lending and grew the portfolio of companies to more than fifty employees.
After the destruction of New Orleans on August 2005, McKenna began to rebuild his business empire through the re-development of moderate-income housing. He later moved to Atlanta in 2007 where he launched ShapeMed an aesthetic and wellness medical practice. The practice was later sold to lifetime fitness in November of 2014, but Dr. Mark served as the national medical director until July 2016. He is happily married to guanine, and together they have a daughter Millan Elle and Pomeranian, Ryder.
The typical Dr. Mark McKenna day starts at 6.30 a.m by getting her daughter out of bed, and they later have breakfast while her mother is still sleeping. He then showers and heads to the office at around 8 a.m. until 6 p.m where he heads back home for dinner. Dr. McKenna brings ideas to life by practicing visualization and setting goals. According to him, a combination of effective goal setting and meditation is the key to success.
The idea of starting his medical practice began while he was working in the medical aesthetics field. He grew his company from scratch and later sold it to a public traded company, and after the sale, he came across a lot of opportunities to disrupt the industry.
One of the things that Dr. Mark would do differently if he was to start all over again was to find his passion at an earlier age. Mark was in a hurry to complete school, and in so doing he might have rushed some things. Dr. Mark believes that it’s important to move slowly and attributes speed without direction as useless. Additionally, he points out surrounding himself with smarter people as one of the ways that helped him grow in business.
