Marc Sparks is an amazing entrepreneur with a brilliant mind and a unique way of doing business that is shaking up the entrepreneur industry. He is extremely happy about building new companies and brings his can-do attitude into every single project or company that he works on. He manages quite a few companies through his firm, Timber Creek Capital, LP. and has been gifted with the ability of taking ideas and turning them into solid, marketable services and products that make the companies he creates one-of-a-kind. Everyone who works with Marc knows what the term “Sparks Speed” means, which is a term that he uses to illustrate the fact that his door is always open, and he is always ready to meet right now, in any moment, to tackle a problem or move a new entrepreneurial endeavor forward.
Marc Sparks graduated from high school in Austin, Texas in 1975 and speaks often about the fact that he was basically a C+ student. He feels that it is by the Grace of God that he has been so successful, and he humbly passes on what he has learned to other people in order to help them out with their success. He acknowledges that he has started up a slew of very successful companies and some that were not so successful (http://thebrotalk.com/bro-recommendations/dallas-entrepreneur-marc-sparks-spills-must-visit-list-wineries-dfw/). His uncanny ability to learn things quickly as well as his focused dedication that he brings to any task has allowed him to become a self-made man who has no formal training in the industries he succeeds in.
Marc Sparks doesn’t believe in only taking care of himself in this life, but his real work is to help others that have not been as fortunate as him. Since the 1980’s, he has been heavily involved with the Samaritan Inn, which is a homeless shelter in Texas. The Inn’s philosophy of giving people a helping hand so can help themselves also is the same philosophy that Marc has. The Samaritan Inn offers shelter to 160 people every night, and most people stay their for months at a time in order to get their life back on track. Marc is happy to support a shelter that offers financial training, job placement services, family services, counseling, and health programs to its residents, and he still finds that he gets quite emotional when one of the residents graduates the program.
