Dr. Mark McKenna is a board-certified medical doctor residing in Atlanta today. Although Mark is a doctor, he is much more focused on the business side of things. Over the years, Mark has created many successful businesses, starting back when he was in medical school. Dr. Mark McKenna was eager to join the medical practice due to the level of complexity and the challenge it brought him, plus his father was a medical practitioner too. Because of this, Mark knew the kind of money he could make from being a doctor, but he wanted much more than that. This is why he started a real estate company in his hometown of New Orleans while he was working in his father’s practice.
Unfortunately for Dr. Mark McKenna, hurricane Katrina struck in 2005 and devasted his company, causing him to lose millions of dollars overnight. This was a big blow, and many businessmen would have given up at the point, but not Dr. Mark McKenna. He stayed in New Orleans and worked to rebuild homes and sell them for a profit. He did this for a while before moving on to Atlanta with his wife and daughter. In Atlanta, he started up the company ShapeMed, a medical-aesthetic company that worked with clients to live healthy lifestyles. This company did great for years and even joined up with Life Time Fitness. After a couple major corporations acquired the company, Mark moved on to start up his latest idea in business, OVME.
OVME currently has a brick and mortar location in Atlanta and Nashville, supplying customers throughout the surrounding areas with various medical products and services that they would normally get at a doctors office. This company targets a specific niche and doesn’t have the much competition on a global scale, though there are local company’s that provide similar services. OVME, pronounced “of me”, focuses on bringing customers the highest quality medical treatments straight to their house. Customers can search for any products they desire through OVME’s own app, which also provides support for real doctors to answers any customer questions.
No one could have predicted that Jeunesse Global, one of the most important global distributors of health and beauty products today, would grow from a garage-based startup to the juggernaut that it is now. The company was founded in 2009 by industry superstars Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis. The couple had attempted to retire a few months before. But they quickly found themselves growing bored and restless with the slow-paced life of retirement. The excitement and challenge of the entrepreneurial world began calling them back.
Ray and Lewis had both spent their entire careers in the health, beauty and direct-marketing industries. The couple had been responsible for the creation of many of those industries’ top companies. Ray had gained a reputation as one of the most skilled salesmen in North America while Lewis was the business brains behind many of the couple’s operations.
Upon founding Jeunesse, Lewis quickly got to work in looking for market opportunities that were not being well addressed by the biggest players in the health and beauty industry. One result was Jeunesse Global’s foundation and bronzer known as NV.
The idea behind NV was to create a product that would achieve many goals in one while also being highly usable for busy professional women or active mothers without a great deal of free time. Acting as both a foundation and a bronzer, NV can be used with or without makeup. Unlike many other foundations, however, NV is able to imbue the skin with a vibrant and youthful glow. This is a result of the product containing the secret molecule known only as APT-200, which was developed by organic chemists working directly on behalf of Jeunesse Global.
In addition to giving skin a healthy, young sheen, APT-200 also packs a serious anti-aging punch, making NV a potent tool in the fight against existing wrinkles and the appearance of new ones. NV is also one of the only foundations on the market that can additionally act as a mild skin lightener. This is a highly popular feature in the company’s East Asian markets, having ensured that NV sales there are going through the roof.
Lime Crime has officially announced its latest rollout, and it’s even more fun than usual. The company is adding to its Unicorn Hair Collection with some seriously dark shades. The original Unicorn Collection had just about every bright color from the rainbow (and beyond) you could imagine. It was a massive success, as women everywhere dyed their hair with the semi-permanent dye and rocked everything from blue to orange locks.
The new colors are called Dark Unicorn and there are four distinct colors. There is a deep maroon called Chestnut, a rich purple called Squid, a dust gray called Charcoal, and an enchanting deep green called Sea Witch. The brand is known for having a very selective rollout process of any new products. In fact, the company states that if it doesn’t think fans will be absolutely obsessed with a product, the won’t release it at all.
The company was founded by visionary Doe Deere. She is a true rebel who started his first business at the age of 13 when she was living in Russia. After coming to New York City she lived many amazing lives before creating LimeCrime. She was a musician and worked in the upscale fashion industry. In 2008 she realized that she was unable to find the rich colors she wanted in cosmetics. At the time, it was trendy to have a basically nude color palette and that just wouldn’t work for Doe Deere.
Lime Crime’s fan base has been described as cult like. The brand stands for something, rather than just simply selling makeup. They have been a digital first company since they were founded and to this day they place a great deal of value on their customer’s opinion. In fact, they continually showcase real people wearing the LimeCrime look on both their website and their social media pages.
Lime Crime continues to expand. They have a rocking team that is constantly working to keep them continually innovating. With the rollout of Dark Unicorn hair color they are again innovating and providing a new way for people to be expressive through the use of hair color.
