Marc Sparks may not have won all of his entrepreneurial ventures, but he has won enough to be proud of his accomplishments since graduating from high school in 1975, when his business adventures began. Over the years, he has founded and lost several businesses, but through it all he credits his overall success to a deep faith in God and an endlessly positive attitude.Learn more : http://thebrotalk.com/bro-recommendations/dallas-entrepreneur-marc-sparks-spills-must-visit-list-wineries-dfw/
Instead of college, Marc Sparks plunged headfirst into the business world. Currently, he is the head of Timber Creek Capital, a private venture capital firm that he created to find, build, and develop new entrepreneur’s dreams into business successes. From his Dallas TX, office, Marc Sparks can work with young people who are trying to follow their dreams just like he did 37 years ago. The firm works with medical, marketing, logistics, and other companies and provides them with the basic groundwork a successful business needs, from office space to web design and customer service.Learn more : http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/entrepreneur-marc-sparks-transforms-office-to-optimize-innovative-collaboration-300024747.html
Many of his colleagues encouraged Marc Sparks to write a book about his experiences and success, so other young visionaries can learn from his ups and downs, so he is also a published author. His book, “They Can’t Eat You” is meant to provide hope for those entrepreneurs who feel themselves so close to their goals, and yet so far away. He said the experience was a humbling one, as he did not just describe the many successes and multi-million dollar triumphs, but also the pain of building an insurance holding company from his home up to a billion dollar market cap – and losing it within a ninety day period.Learn more : https://www.amazon.com/They-Cant-Eat-Marc-Sparks/dp/0990495000
Of course, business is not always about success, but how you deal with the failures that you meet along the way. For Marc Sparks, that means not being afraid of failure. He has never felt that fear of making mistakes, and credits that to a God-given characteristic within himself. Fearlessness was one lesson he hoped that readers would take away from his book.
Instead of being focused on becoming wealthy with money, he has instead focused on being able to have the freedom of time with family, friends, and the great outdoors. He loves the outdoors, going hunting and fishing throughout Texas, and once took a world tour in only 23 days.
Nor is it enough to be successful himself. Marc Sparks believes in giving a hand up to the less fortunate in his community. One charity he supports, The Samaritan Inn, is a homeless shelter where residents learn life skills and get housing and job help so they can stand on their own feet again. He even personally built homes with Habitat For Humanity, putting his handyman skills to a good cause.Learn more : https://twitter.com/msparks5010?lang=en
