Dr. Mark McKenna, MD, graduated from Tulane University Medical School and is licensed to practice medicine and surgery in the states of Florida and Georgia. In 2017, he created and became the CEO of OVME, which is a medical company that is using technology to turn the healthcare industry upside down. He came up with the idea for the company after having worked in the medical aesthetics field for more than a decade. It was during this time that he realized that there were many possibilities for change and reform in the industry and that he would be the one to bring about a good many of them.

He also suggests that any aspiring entrepreneur should read “Think and Grow Rich,” by Napoleon Hill, which includes some good advice about how visualization can change anybody’s life. As he looks into the future, he points out that a good business idea might be to get into crypto currency but, more specifically, the retail brick and mortar aspect that allows people to exchange it for cash.
