Marc Sparks: Serial Entrepreneur Without The Formal Education

Calling all entrepreneurs, reserve your space now for a meeting at the conference with Marc Sparks: sorry, not going to happen. Why? Mr. Sparks likes to listen to ideas and problems in the here-and-now.

He has an open door policy: his office personnel call meeting with him Sparks Speed. He figures that if a problem needs solving, he could fix that issue in the time he would need to reserve a conference hall.

Sparks has a flair for getting businesses underway: he can start with a single idea or from a concept that someone finds unbelievable. Now, that’s not to say that every start-up explodes in a positive way; he has had his share of ups and downs.

The steps that he takes to move forward with building companies helps his team to function better: he manages to accomplish a business model that sets up the culture of that company with both short and long-term goals. While there are entrepreneurs that start one business and keep it going, Mr. Sparks became a serial entrepreneur right after graduating high school in 1975.

Marc Has That Spark To Help Others

With over 35 years of entrepreneurial experience, Mr. Sparks acquired the acumen of knowing and understanding the challenges that one faces in building start-ups. He can offer many resources within the system of his business, Timber Creek Capital, LP, as he and his organization mentor new companies in the stages of launching.

For those of you getting started as an entrepreneur, take heart: this may be a dog-eat-dog world, but Mr. Sparks’ book explains that “They Can’t Eat You”. Thank goodness for that. The truths that he learned over the years sparked not only the book but the idea of starting Timber Creek Capital. He longs to support other entrepreneurs into seeing their dreams go far beyond coming true: he wants to see them create a company that reaches as he says, “critical mass.”

For those who wish to start a business, seeing that dream come true might seem like a nightmare. With 35 years of experience as a serial entrepreneur, Mark Sparks and his well-oiled company, Timber Creek Capital, can shine a light on what new entrepreneurs need to succeed.
