How Dr. Mark McKenna Is Introducing New Ideas Into The Cosmetic Surgery Industry

Something that Dr. Mark McKenna figured out while earning his medical degree was that being a doctor wouldn’t be a lucrative career. So, when he graduated from Tulane Medical School in 1999, he decided to start a real estate firm. This company was located in New Orleans and he bought properties across this city. However, he lost millions in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina struck that city. He started to rebuild his company but ended up shutting this business down.

After this, Dr. Mark McKenna moved to Atlanta. He started a new business called ShapeMed with eventually had a number of locations. Each office offered cosmetic services like laser hair removal, Botox injections, and helping people eat better and lose weight. He sold this company to Lifetime Fitness in 2015 and joined this company. He left a year later, though, when this company that had been publicly traded was bought by a private equity firm and taken private.

Continuing to be an entrepreneur, Dr. Mark McKenna is now introducing a new concept and business called OVME. It opened its door in March 2018 in Atlanta. It offers a luxury experience to its patients and is located in a high-end neighborhood, Buckhead. He said his office offers minimally invasive procedures using state-of-the-art technology. These procedures include Botox and Dysport injections, dermal fillers, testosterone replacement therapy, hair loss services, and Vivace microneedling among other procedures.

Dr. Mark McKenna wants to make OVME a national brand. He says his industry is very fragmented and there is no business even remotely approaching being across the nation. He says he wants to make OVME a business where the user experience is the difference maker and where people don’t feel like they are going to some doctors office. He said OVME emails a form to patients they complete before they come in so that the patient coordinator is fully up to speed before they come in.

Another big difference with OVME, he says, is that it has a mobile app. Dr. Mark McKenna says this app will enable his company to provide house calls to customers and will also enable virtual consulting.

With Superior Products and Ethics, Waiakea Water has Moved to the Top of the Bottled Water Industry

The best way to build a successful business is from the bottom up; if you build a firm foundation, you will have a stable business. Ryan Emmons, the founder and CEO of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water did just that when he established Waiakea Water at age 22. He entered the bottled water industry with no experience, but, now at 28, he is the owner of one of the world’s most popular ph water companies.

Most bottled water companies are run by those in the Boomer generation, so Ryan, a millennial, has made his decisions and built the Hawaii volcanic water business with his own intuition and perseverance. Not surprisingly, millennials are Waiakea Water main customers, and the slogan: “drink healthy, drink sustainably, and drink ethically” is his foundation and shared with millennials.

Waiakea Water is a refreshing, natural ph-balanced water from a volcanic spring in Hawaii. Waiakea never processes the Hawaii volcanic water, so it has many volcanic water benefits. It is highly alkaline and packed with trace minerals that come from the water flowing over for 14,000 feet inside the volcano.

Ryan Emmons found this natural spring when his family vacationed near there. Ryan leased the volcanic springs for 99 years because he knew then that he wanted pure, high-quality, mineral-infused water for his company. Waiakea’s Hawaii volcanic water is also rich in electrolytes.

During his first year of sales, Ryan sold 2,304 cases, and in 2016, the number of cases rose to 122,400 cases, and, today, the company is valued at over $10 million. Waiakea uses sustainable/recyclable plastic, and in 2018, the company began using a highly-advanced plastic that will completely disintegrate in less than 15 years! The old biodegradable plastic never completely dissolves, so it is harming the planet. Internationally, this new plastic will make a tremendous difference.

The last phrase of the slogan is “drink ethically,” and Ryan “Gives Back” to communities in need of fresh water. Together with Pumpaid, Waiakea has donated over 600 million liters of water to rural communities in Africa, and as Waiakea Hawaii volcanic water becomes more successful, Ryan donates more.
