After more than 34 years as an entrepreneur, Marc Sparks has created a start up business for people who want to achieve great things in the business world.
It is called Spark Tank and is based on the television series Shark Tank, in which highly successful business entrepreneurs are willing to invest some of their money to help people who have new services and products that they want to sell to the public. In the case of Mr. Sparks, holds three-hour sessions to coach people in how to be successful in the marketing industry.
Sparks is trying to get his entrepreneur training underway in Dallas, Texas. He was inspired to begin the start up training programs by his president and CEO of Marc USA. Marc USA is one the most successful advertising agencies in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Students will learn all aspects of the marketing industry including company marketing communications skills and development ideas. The instructors that Sparks has recruited for his seminars include professionals in the fields of business strategy, public relations, creative arts, and digital media.
Marc Sparks grew up in Austin, Texas in the 1960s and 1970s. He graduated from the local high school with just a C+ average. He is an example of how an average student can grow up to become extremely successful in the business world. He may not have been book smart, but he always had a keen sense of what works in the business world and what does not. Sparks is not always successful.
In his own bedroom at home, he began an insurance company that soon grew to be worth about a billion dollars a year, then it went bust, 90 days later. Marc Sparks is not afraid of losing and taking a chance. He is excited about life. He thinks that health, family, and building new businesses is the key to happiness.
Being a wealthy businessman, Marc Sparks wants to help those who are less fortunate than he is. Since the late 1980s, Sparks has devoted some of his time and money to a homeless shelter called The Samaritan Inn. Rick Crocker is the new CEO who has replaced Lynne Sipiora who retired from the job after 11 years.
The facility not only shelters 160 people for an average of five months, it will also keep their pets. The Samaritan Inn is presently constructing a family facility that is expected to be completed in 2025. Read more: Marc Sparks – Profile – Disqus
