In this life, you can succeed on your own, or you can seek the counsel of experienced and successful people. According to Marc Sparks, successful and knowledgeable people have a duty to train the less fortunate so that they can climb the ladder. He has learned that a lot is expected from people who have been blessed with a lot of resources. For this reason, Marc Sparks has dedicated his life to helping other people in his many ventures. Whether its business, venture capitalism or philanthropy, Marc Sparks is always doing something to help the people around him.
Perhaps his greatest way of passing information that other people can succeed in life is through his publishing. He is the proud author of a book called They Can’t Eat You that details his path to success. It’s his hope that other people can also succeed in life despite falling short of education. Having graduated from college with a C grade, Marc Sparks didn’t despair. Instead, he focused on business and has recorded remarkable success since then. He concentrates in real estate and telecommunication industries where he runs several ventures such as Blue Jay Wireless, Splash Media, and Cardinal Telecom. As of today, he is involved with a company called Timber Creek Capital where he is recognized as the chairman and chief executive officer.
Marc Sparks is a person who listens to other people’s ideas and decides whether they deserve funding and hence the term venture capitalist. He believes that before you can turn to a venture capitalist, you must show some dedication and commitment to your idea. Also, you must have faith in your idea. Finally, Marc Spark has the notion that to be funded by a venture capitalist, you must show them you have a business strategy in your mind at all time. Currently residing in Dallas, Texas, Marc Sparks has funded many ideas through the Spark Tank initiative.
