Marc Sparks has long been a leader in the entrepreneurial industry, having founded many successful companies, including Timber Creek Capital. With over ten years in its same location, Marc Sparks was sensing that the ideas and forward thinking of his company that led to the original success had grown stale. Therefore, he decided to switch up the office and move to a new location in order to spark the same creativity to drove the company to its original success.
The new office setup will resemble a pattern that has developed with other successful startups, working to foster an environment in which people will work together to push each other to new heights and come up with better ideas to drive the office forward. The whole idea is to generate private equity that can be used to help other entrepreneurs make companies that enjoy similar revenue streams.
Marc Sparks knows that without a work environment conducive to collaboration, his company can only go so far. He has learned this from decades of experience and massive success with multiple companies. In fact, he details this in his new book titled “They Can’t Eat You.” In this, he describes how people can follow in the footsteps of his success while also learning from his failures without having to make the same mistakes themselves.
With over 35 years of success with Timber Capital, he takes his time and selects a few companies at a time to back and mentor to successes these young entrepreneurs haven’t seen before. Generous with his time, these young professionals can learn from his years of wisdom and experience.
In addition to a successful entrepreneur, Marc Sparks is also a prolific author and generous philanthropist. His book, They Can’t Eat You, was discussed above and serves as a model for other young businessmen to follow.
He also spends a significant amount of time with Habitat for Humanity. Furthermore, he runs a non-profit organization called Sparkey Kids, which recently donated one thousand laptop computers to under served children in the area. Sparks also works with a homeless shelter called The Samaritan Inn which houses over 160 people per night.
Marc Sparks’s greatest success, Timber Capital, exists to generate revenue with which Sparks can back the young dreams of other entrepreneurs. In Dallas, this company provides not only revenue, but also leadership with experience and wisdom, legal resources, and accounting departments necessary to help the dreams of others take flight.
With the marketing, graphic design, and support staff combined with the other resources, these individuals have a much better chance of turning their dreams into successful business venture than they would have alone. Marc Sparks serves as a true role model for others in the entrepreneurial industry.
