Marc Sparks is a business leader I have been aware of since reading his book, “They Can’t Eat You!” and have since become aware of many more aspects of the work of this impressive investment specialist. After learning about the career choices of Marc Sparks I believe I share a number of the values this telecommunications expert stands for in his own life; in searching for business experts to take advice from in the form of books and motivational speeches I usually look for those who wish to give back to their community, which Marc Sparks definitely wishes to do in his life.
The first thing that struck me about the life and career of Marc Sparks was the long term period of success he has enjoyed as an investor and venture capitalist in Dallas, Texas and across the U.S. I was impressed in the way Marc Sparks navigated the investment opportunities open to him as he has developed investments in many different sectors, including a major move into the telecommunications markets when the mobile industry was still in its infancy.
I have also been impressed with the way Marc Sparks and his Timber Creek Capital group have looked to assist emerging companies through a dedication to education and financial backing that has reached high levels in recent years. Recently, I read about the changes Marc had made to his offices used by Timber Creek Capital in a bid to make them more appealing to new investors and companies seeking venture capital to get off the ground; the explanation from Marc Sparks that an open environment that promoted interaction and development aids business success made perfect sense to me and inspired me to look at how I conduct my own business life.
I was therefore very impressed with the way Marc Sparks has given back to people in Dallas, Texas through his philanthropic work with the homeless and under privileged in the state to improve their future opportunities.
