The Success of Marc Sparks

World-renowned entrepreneur, Marc Sparks, was raised in Austin, Texas, where he graduated from high school in 1975. He skipped college altogether and immediately began his incredibly successful careers. But along the way there have been failures which he used as learning experiences. Since the beginning of his entrepreneurship, he has been the principal in many startups. He has used the few experiences that have not been so successful, to show him how to reach great success. His experiences and his talks about them caused his colleagues to encourage him to write a book about it. Learn more: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/marcsparks

 

So he did. The book that resulted is entitled “They Can’t Eat You” in which he talks about these failed endeavors and what he learned by these failures. These failures include his building billion-dollar companies and then making mistakes that instigated his losing it all. He designed this book specifically for young entrepreneurs who are in the exact same position he was in and need advice about how to succeed in their endeavors. By learning from these failures, he has attained great success many a time. Today his primary base company, Timber Creek Capital, manages his currently most valued companies.

 

He is known as an entrepreneur that takes risks that most would never consider because they don’t see it as a possibility. But time and time again, Sparks has shown that these wild risks are not only possible, they are the best option for success. As busy a man as he is, he is always willing to talk things through with an employee. Sparks also plays a big role in charitable works, specifically in projects that assist the homeless. To this end he finances The Samaritan Inn, a homeless shelter in Texas. This shelter does more than just house them.

 

Its program includes counseling, financial education, job placement, family services, and health programs. It is so successful and so popular that ever week they are forced to turn away 75 people who want in the program. But this is not his only charitable work. He is also active in Habitat for Humanity, Sparky’s Kids Foundation, and America Can! This is a years-long labor of love, having been active in the work of The Samaritan Inn since the late 80s. Learning from his past, Sparks is very happy with his present, and extremely optimistic about the future. Sparks is also a very active outdoors guy. He often hunts, fishes, hikes, bikes, golfs, works out, and travels to exotic destinations all over the world. Learn more: http://sparktankdfw.com/
