Marc Sparks Believes Everyone Can Succeed

Marc Sparks is an unusual sort of entrepreneur. As his own website describes him, he is “the entrepreneur’s entrepreneur!” While many others in business were off furthering their education and toiling away at a day-to-day job, Marc jumped headfirst into the business world straight out of high school. Since then he has spent over thirty years building up his experience and wisdom of running a business throughout numerous projects. He readily admits that a few of these were failures, and plenty were successful, but he is grateful for them all. Now he runs the venture capital company Timber Creeks Capital, where he takes on only a select group of start-ups at a time and nurtures them into success.

Now that Marc has mastered the keys to entrepreneurship, he spends his time helping others. Timber Creek Capital focuses on providing a nurturing environment to a few start-ups at a time. “Through my years of experiences I understand challenges and devastating circumstances entrepreneurship can bring. My passion is to help entrepreneurs build their dream and companies to critical mass through my experience,” explains Sparks. Once taken on by Timber Creek, companies are provided with a cornucopia of business needs such as office space, capital, customer service expertise, and plenty of advice. A few years ago, Marc also created the Marketing Sparks program to train start-up entrepreneurs on marketing and communications strategies. A team of experts in marketing, public relations and other fields teaches the program in intense, three-hour sessions. Learn more: http://www.marcsparks.com/

 

Marc also uses his knowledge and wealth for philanthropic endeavors aimed at helping others succeed. The Spark Tank is a grant program that offers 5,000 dollars to social service groups and executives with ideas to help improve their communities. Marc also works with The Samaritan Inn, a shelter aimed at helping those in need get back on their feet with housing, education and assistance in finding work.
