It is a very difficult affair becoming a successful entrepreneur and even harder when you have to deal with disasters. Disasters will break every spirit you of succeeding. This is what happened to Dr. Mark McKenna when he tried investing in the real estate sector. His investment was swept clean by Hurricane Katrina, forcing him to start life afresh. The positive thing with Dr. Mark McKenna is that he has never given up. Every time he encounters a challenge, he rises very fast.
Mark McKenna attended Tulane University School of medicine in New Orleans. He wanted to be like his father who was a successful doctor. He wanted to be equally successful and therefore did everything possible to accomplish the dream of becoming a medical doctor.
While still pursuing a medical degree, Dr. Mark McKenna invested in the real estate. He created a company known as McKenna Venture Investments. The investment gained ground significantly and even started bringing in some good returns. After completing his degree, he started working at his father’s practice and at the same time managing his real estate company.
In 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans leaving widespread destruction. Among the assets that were destroyed were the investment that Dr. Mark McKenna had. After losing his investments to the hurricane, he decided to make a comeback in the healthcare sector. He realized that it was not prone to challenges like the real estate investment.
In the medical sector, Dr. Mark McKenna created ShapeMed, an aesthetic-based venture. He develops this venture over a couple of years, opening branches in different places. Life Time Fitness Inc later purchased it.
McKenna started OVME, an aesthetics business which allows patients to order for medical services as they order for a taxi via uber. OVME is utilizing the technological innovations of the current era to make health care affordable and available.

Adam Milstein is a native of Israel. After graduating from high school he served in the Israeli militaryand then became a student at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. He graduated in 1978 with a degree in industrial and business management. A few years later he and his family emigrated to America and he became a student at the University of Southern California, earning his MBA in entrepreneurship. Since that time he has worked at his own real estate investment company, Hager Pacific Properties, as its managing partner.
Along with 100 philanthropists and scholars from the United States, Adam Milstein recently visited Europe. They traveled through six nations which were Latvia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Poland, and Lithuania. Their goal was to gain a greater understanding of the genocide that had been carried out by Nazi Germany and the people that collaborated with them across Europe.
He says that they visited Auschwitz-Birkenau. Adam Milstein says that the only reason this facility existed was to kill Jewish and Gypsy people. They also visited mass graves in a number of nation’s where hundreds of thousands of these people were murdered, often by firing squads. One of the worst is at Rumbula Forest Memorial. Around 2.4 million Jewish people were killed here, many of them shot by the people who just days before had been their neighbors but turned on them when the Nazi’s arrived.
Adam Milstein says that sites like these are viewed by too many people as just historical sites. He says that you can learn not just from the past from sites such as these but also about the future. He says that Anti-Semitism like it existed in Nazi Germany could happen once again. Adam Milstein says this is especially true in the United States.
The lessons he drew from this trip include that something like the Holocaust doesn’t just suddenly occur. The Holocaust evolved through systematic racism which led to intimidating and discriminating against Jewish and Gypsy people over a period of years. He says that these two groups of people began to be hated by generations growing up with these thoughts which led to the beginning of the largest genocide in recorded history.
