Shervin Pishevar has been at the forefront of Silicon Valley’s rise for the last 20 years. As the founder and CEO of Sherpa Capital, the veteran financier and entrepreneur has been behind the creation of many of the biggest names in tech. Companies that Shervin Pishevar has financed include Uber, Airbnb and Virgin Hyperloop. He has also been personally responsible for the founding of names like Social Gaming Network, WebOS and Ionside.
In his spare time, Shervin Pishevar frequently tweets about a wide range of topics. His Twitter feed has nearly 100,000 followers, making him one of the most influential thinkers in Silicon Valley. Recently, Shervin Pishevar unleashed a 21-hour tweet storm in which he expounded on everything from the U.S. economy to the state of Silicon Valley.
One of the hot-button issues on which Pishevar held forth is the overvaluation of many asset classes within U.S. markets. Pishevar says that affordability indexes point towards the majority of real estate markets in the United States being overheated. When residents in places like Los Angeles and San Francisco need to work 35 hours per week just to afford the average mortgage payment, the housing market is due for a major correction. Pishevar says that he has watched many bubbles in his lifetime from a front-row seat. All of the hallmarks of bubble economies are now currently being seen in many of the big-city real estate markets across the nation.
At the same time, Pishevar says that stocks are valued at historic highs by almost any measure that one chooses. The current Schiller P/E ration of 33 is among the highest ever recorded, with a historic average being around 20. Pishevar says that equities, like real estate, will almost certainly undergo a correction in the near-term future.
But even the bond markets are severely overblown. Pishevar says that gold and other precious metals provide one of the only safe havens for investor capital. He says that cash will soon become unsafe due to the inflationary pressures put on the dollar by the endless open market operations of the Federal Reserve bank.

Dr. Mark McKenna had his sights on being a doctor, as his dad was. He went to Tulane Medical School and earned a degree in 1999. Then, he decided to switch careers and established a real estate business in New Orleans. Things were going great for Dr. McKenna until Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005. Within hours, Dr. McKenna lost millions.
It’s difficult to start over again, but that is exactly what Dr. Mark McKenna did. He moved to Atlanta and created a chain of offices called ShapeMed. These clinics offered cosmetic treatments such as laser hair removal, botox injections and nutrition counseling. This lasted until 2015 when Dr. McKenna sold the business to the gym chain, Lifetime Fitness.
Currently, Dr. McKenna is focusing on a new venture. OVME recently opened in Atlanta. OVME (pronounced “Of Me”) is a chain of offices that will act like Uber for cosmetic treatments. Patients will have access to an app that will enable them to contact practitioners who will make house calls to do light cosmetic procedures.
Dr. Mark McKenna is excited about OVME, which opened in the Buckhead area of Atlanta in March. He stated that he is proud to bring this type of service to the Atlanta area and that he believes the needs of patients have greatly changed in recent years. OVME is his answer to these changes. OVME combines medical aesthetics with cutting-edge technology. The office of OVME is located on Peachtree roadand occupies a 1,500 square foot space. The complex includes private treatment rooms and a meeting room for consultation purposes. The focus of OVME is to move away from the “one-size-fits-all” standard.
The vision of Dr. Mark McKenna consists of creating a national network of providers, similar to the Uber franchise. If a practitioner would like to earn extra money, they will be able to log in to the app and disclose what hours they are able to work and location. OVME will then connect them to need jobs in their location. Dr. McKenna feels that OVME will make $25 million dollars within the next five years.
