Marc Sparks: More Than Just A Serial Entrepreneur

Marc Sparks is one of the select individuals on the planet who has shown through his relentless perseverance and willingness to acquire new ideologies that a person’s success does not entirely depend on his or her educational attainment.

Growing Up Years

Austin, Texas is a dear place for Marc Sparks, for this is where he was raised and had simultaneously received his high school diploma in 1975 and began to lead and/or create countless numbers of new businesses. Notwithstanding the fact that not all of these initial startups were profitable, more than three decades already passed since then, and those failures made up the whole formula that resulted to the achievements that he is and will be experiencing.

His Companies

Marc Sparks deserved to be called as a serial entrepreneur since his innate brilliance led him to own various companies that remain to do well for years. The first one, the Timber Creek Capital, was established in the year 2000.

This is a private equity firm whose specialty is offering entrepreneurial aid to a wide range of industries. The services that they can deliver include (but are not limited to) web development, graphic design, bookkeeping, office equipment, and marketing.

From Timber Creek Capital’s conception, Marc continued to purchase or build notable firms. Some of the companies that are still under his name up to this day are: Splash Media which specializes in providing marketing services that make use of technological advancements as well as search engine optimized keywords; Cobalt Real Estate Services which offers commercial and residential spaces within the state of Texas; Blue Jays Wireless whose ultimate focus is on giving people with credit card issues the opportunity to call and text others through prepaid devices; and Cardinal Telecom, LLC which distributes mobile phones nationwide.

In addition, a couple of his latest businesses are the Bonn Oir, a manufacturing company that creates artisan vodka, and Uncle Marc Food Delivery that aims to help restaurants bring their consumers’ orders faster.

His Philanthropy

As a self-made entrepreneur, Marc Sparks ensures to share his blessings to the underprivileged, especially in Texas where The Samaritan Inn, a shelter that caters to homeless people, lies. He also helps send individuals who want to change their lives for the better in school, and is humbled whenever the news about the great kind of life they are leading reaches him.

Moreover, Marc Sparks is deeply committed to the Habitat for Humanity and the American Can! Academy. He has personally exerted time and effort in building houses for the former, while giving support to the latter in any way he can. Marc has a foundation as well that is known as Sparky’s Kids, and its role in the community is to provide thousands of computers to impoverished children.
