Atlanta is about to get a lot more beautiful. Renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Mark Mckenna, a pioneer in the field of Medical Aesthetics, has just announced the opening of his new, state-of-the-art facility in Buckhead. OVME, pronounced of me, is a “medical aesthetic experience” featuring four luxurious and private treatment rooms, offering all the latest in treatments.
Dr. Mark Mckenna, a graduate of Tulane Medical School, has always had an itch to innovate. Rather than follow the traditional routes through the medical field, upon graduation in 1999, Mckenna went into real estate. When Hurricane Katrina cut a tragic swath through his territory, Mckenna decided to make a change. He moved to Atlanta and made his first attempt at medical entrepreneurship, opening a chain of cosmetic treatment, nutrition, and weight counseling offices, calling his new venture ShapeMed. He sold the business to a chain of gyms, continuing to work with the company for another year, but he missed the challenges and rewards of running his own business. Out of that, OVME was born.
Dr. Mark Mckenna first envisioned his new venture as an Uber-like service for Botox patients. He foresaw a time when patients would pull out their smartphones, and with a few swipes of an app, have an appointment for a house call. While the initial plan was eventually found to be unworkable, for now, it did get Mckenna’s innovative mind churning. OVME 2.0 was built on a deconstructed vision of medical aesthetics that is client-focused, and highly curated to the client’s needs.
The experience at OVME is highly customizable, with Dr. Mark Mckenna and his team providing one-on-one consultations to create care-plans that are personal and focused on long-term results. OVME also provides a comprehensive series of membership packages, at different pricing levels, that include exclusive discounts, access to special events, free monthly treatments, and, for those busy Atlanta professionals, same-day Botox appointments.
OVME, located at 3167 Peachtree Road NE, in Atlanta, opened its doors on March 1st, and Dr. Mark Mckenna and his staff are sure to keep innovating and designing a one-of-a kind medical aesthetic experience.
Super angel investor, Shervin Pishevar, is well-known as being the previous managing director and co-founder of Sherpa Capital. This is a venture capital fund that has invested in companies like Uber and Airbnb. He recently went on a 21 hour tweet storm that had some ominous predictions for the economic situation in the United States. Other predictions he has made regarding economics have proven to be true.
After a dramatic drop in the stock market in February 2018, Shervin Pishevar went on to post a variety of tweets that predicted bad things for the US economy. For example, he talked about quantitative easing. This is a process that central banks use to buy bonds. In the past, it is a tool that has been used to correct downturns in the market. However, Shervin Pishevar tells people to not be fooled by quantitative easing, basically saying that government bonds do not have limitless power when it comes to correcting the market.
In his 17th tweet, Shervin Pishevar said that inflation is dead. He said that the United States has been able to export its inflation for many decades and says that it never manifests itself in the way that people expect. He feels that under the current administration, uncertain trade deals are not going to help the situation.
He also addressed big funds. In his 14th tweet, he mentioned that when the market tanks, major CTA and managed future funds are taken out. He believes that there is a precedent to expect that big funds are going to bite the bullet.
These are just a few examples of the ominous predictions made by Shervin Pishevar in his 21 hour tweet storm rant. However, he did not only make bad predictions about the economy. He did say that there were some moonshots that would inspire good work. The exceptions to the rule included Virgin Hyperloop and SpaceX. Many feel that these predictions should be taken with a grain of salt, especially considering that Shervin Pishevar is one of the co-founders of Virgin Hyperloop. He mentioned that these moonshots are possible for smaller companies because of the decaying and decrypt infrastructure in the United States.
Dr. Mark McKenna is a medical maverick, entrepreneur, and the CEO of OVME, which is a company that is looking to offer people a fresh medical aesthetic experience to make them look and feel their best. McKenna recently sold his business idea ShapeMed to Lifetime Fitness and was more than happy to reinvest in his new business idea. The OVME offices in the Buckhead area are looking to offer clients luxury treatment rooms and private offices for consultations. McKenna commented recently that OVME is in business to refresh a stale aesthetic medical industry with its offerings and through technology that is looking to give elective healthcare a makeover.

Dr. Mark McKenna has always impressed his patients, and he is a celebrity of sorts in his own community that is known to advocate and work for his patients. His procedures are minimally invasive, and for years he has worked to create a client-facing business model that is transparent. part of the excitement about OVME stems from the fact that it is moving away from a one-size-fits-all business model and moving towards individual care that uses modern technology to ensure its success. Along with skin and facial offerings, OVME is focusing on providing its patients with Botox and Dysport injections to make them look and feel more youthful and also plans on offering other health and body services.
Dr. Mark McKenna is proud to be a part of giving back to his community, but this isn’t the first time he has done so. he grew up in New Orleans and was there when Hurricane Katrina struck. He watched as his own business interests and those of many others were wrecked by the hurricane, and he also witnessed the massive loss of homes in the area. Instead of running away, he stayed around for years to ensure that people had homes. He helped to build many of these with his own hands, which went to house low and middle-income families. Dr. Mark McKenna is looking forward to continuing to be a part of the community he lives in, and he knows that OVME is going to change the lives of many people in the area.
One of the worst hurricanes ever to hit Houston was Hurricane Harvey. It dumped torrential rains on the metropolis, causing a massive flood that led to the loss of lives, homes and pets. And while all these were happening, the entire United States and other countries abroad were quite powerless to come to the aid of the victims.
In the midst of all the mayhem brought about by the nature’s tempest, Stream Energy, an energy resource company based in Dallas, was among the first to shell out money that it netted from the lucrative sales of its energy venture to support the overall recovery, and relieve the monetary dilemmas of its own clients.
The regular philanthropic activities done by the company has always been a part of its corporate goals. And this being the case, Stream Energy lately established Stream Cares – the company’s charity foundation. The foundation is to validate its continuing charity works across Texas, and throughout the United States. This has been an activity that Stream Energy has been involved with for over a decade.
Hurricane Harvey is a case in exception, since Stream Energy went beyond money to assist in the rescue undertakings. In such times, the philanthropic efforts of a company are often regarded as an expansive means to gain media attention. Although in a practical way, it is a means to cushion undesirable incidents that are likely to happen such as when difficult times lead to layoffs, when earnings decline, and when scandals transpire.
To boost its philanthropic activities, Stream compensates its affiliates to build an association of loyal customers to whom they can provide numerous products and services that ranges from an energy rate that does not fluctuate to plans for mobile phones. The said services/products are provided by the company for corporate and residential clients who can likewise avail of the services of virtual physicians, telemedicine and a reduced clean energy rate.
The successful associates of Stream are paid commissions depending on the sales and in essence are considered business owners and entrepreneurs, who support the charitable cause s of the company. And this is how Stream Energy is able to subsidize its charities via Stream Cares.
Health is one of the most profitable markets that one can be a part of. However, it can be very tricky for people to get involved in that industry if they are not offering any type of product. This is one of the reasons that people find online programs that allow them to sell products for other companies. Among the programs that are available is Market America. As a matter of fact, Market America is one of the best programs to join because for health and the related industries because it has a ton of brands that are in the health industry.
People can choose which specific area of health they want to focus on. There is the health and fitness area that deals with all of the vitamins and minerals as well as other nutrients. For one thing, a lot of health hinges on the ability of the individual to keep up with the nutrients he needs so that he will be able to maintain his energy levels. However, a lot of people have an incomplete knowledge of the nutrients they need to consume so that they will be able to either maintain their health or take it to a higher level.
Market America not only helps people improve their physical health but also helps them make money while they are at it. People can set up their own accounts in order to bring attention to the products offered by Market America. When a sale is purchased through the referral link, then the person who owns that referral link is going to get the commission. This can be a great way to make money for people who have a lot of popularity. After all, the way that people can make money is dependent on their social activities and their interactions.
Shervin Pishevar recently used Twitter to express his views on the global economy. His discussion lasted for 21 hours, and it was composed of twits about Silicon Valley to immigration. Pishevar is no stranger to investing. He has invested in companies such as Uber, Slack, and Dollar Shave Club, so when he twits, people take notice.
One prediction was about the fall of the United States stock market. He gave a detailed explanation of what will cause a combined 6,000-point reduction. The drop for 2018 has already erased all of this year’s gains, and if his predictions continue, the decline will erase all of the profits of 2017. Factors that caused the decline are higher interest rates, improper taxing, and the increase between credit accounts and their deficits.
Pishevar twits covered the government bond market and the disasters ahead. Eroded are the powers of the central banks. The process of purchasing bonds to correct the market is ineffective.
The storm of twits continues with the international economy. Americans are pushing inflation out beyond our borders. Pishevar believes this has been creeping along for years.
Twit number four talks about managed funds. The short burst names funds that Shervin Pishevar thinks may fall in the upcoming economic crisis. The two areas of concern are Volatility Indices and Managed Future Funds.
Shervin Pishevar chimed in about the once shiny Silicon Valley. He seems to believe that they no longer are the most influential player, and innovation and talent are opting for other avenues. Silicon Valley is losing its exclusivity and cannot be relied upon as a mainstream for growth in the US anymore.
Pishevar is an immigrant, who tweets about walls blocking talent. The barriers created to protect citizens and keep out trouble are actually preventing growth, skill, and prosperity. With all that said, Shervin Pishevar has predicted future markets before, so will he do it again?
OSI Industries has remained a strong partner of the McDonald’s franchise for over 60 years and has followed them practically everywhere their restaurants have opened, and much of it is thanks to OSI Industries Chairman Sheldon Lavin who for more than 40 years has never stopped bringing new growth investment ideas to the company. OSI Industries has several international branches of the company including GenOSI that Lavin helped launch back in the early 1990s in the Philippines, and GenOSI will be opening a brand new plant in the Philippines that will multiply its meat production and shipping output. Lavin congratulated his GenOSI partner Fred Uytengsu upon the completion of the plant in Calamba province and is pleased with how the plant will increase the distribution of quality meats to customers in the Philippines and surrounding Asian nations. The new plant has about 23,000 metric tons in meat that can be outputted annually.
Sheldon Lavin can be credited for building partnerships across the globe with companies like GenOSI and Flagship Europe which was acquired by OSI in 2016. But he actually was quite new to food processing when he first came to the company. OSI Industries was known as Otto & Sons, a Chicago-based meat store that was owned by the Kolschowsky family and had just been chosen by McDonald’s CEO Ray Kroc to be their sole meat supplier in 1955. But McDonald’s was becoming so popular that it grew nationwide and began to start heading to new countries, and Otto & Sons needed to be able to supply their products to its locations. That led them to go to Sheldon Lavin’s consulting firm, the business he was running at the time after spending his early career days in banking. Lavin became a part-time financial advisor to Otto & Sons and helped them get financing to open the first high-volume plants in Chicago. But he also showed the capability of leading the company and as the Kolschowsky’s started reaching retirement, they made Lavin CEO and eventually sold their shares to him.
Sheldon Lavin didn’t just want to lead OSI Industries like any CEO; he wanted to turn the company into something that had a global impact and could go as far as he wanted it to. Lavin started financing the opening of factories in Spain, India, Brazil, the UK and many other countries and today OSI ships its products to over 60 countries. Lavin also espouses treating everyone at OSI and its partner companies like family and wants OSI to be known as a not-so-typical corporation that listens to what employees have to say. Lavin was honored at the North American Meat Institute gathering with the Edward C. Jones award for community service, and also given the Global Visionary award in 2016 for 40 plus years of growth leadership.
