Marc Sparks is the ideal entrepreneurs’ entrepreneur as in if you were to look up the term “serial entrepreneur” in the dictionary the face next to it would be that of Sparks. Sparks has tried to launch many different programs since his graduation back in 1975. Some of those have gone on to do brilliantly while others have turned out to be completely disastrous. However, Sparks chalks it up the plans God has for him in life, and he believes that his successes and failures were part of God’s plan. It’s the only way that makes sense to Sparks to justify his overall success. Otherwise, how does a simple high-school kid from Texas sell $100s millions worth or products? To Marc Sparks, there is no other explanation than the will and grace of God.

Outside of his entrepreneurial work Mark Sparks has a heart as big as his passion for business (http://sparktankdfw.com/). Sparks is active in countless charities and donates his time and money to many causes near to him. His foremost cause is a homeless shelter in Texas called the Samaritan’s Inn which been aiding since the late-1980s. People get a hand-up here not a hand-out. Sparks says the place houses about 160 people every single night from homelessness, and the average person stays about 5 months. They also have to turn away at least 75 people a week who want into the program and can’t make it in because the resources just aren’t there. It breaks his Sparks heart to tell anyone “no” and he wants to continue to grow the program till they never have to turn someone away again. Sparks favorite part is seeing people “graduate” the program and then go on to succeed in their lives. It’s humbling and tear-jerking for him every time someone comes back a year on and shows how well they are able to do for themselves.
