We have known lots of success stories about famous personalities, and how their experiences inspired many of us. Stories of giant entrepreneurs like Bill Gates of Microsoft, Steve Jobs of Apple, and Jack Ma of Alibaba have sparked inspiration to many people around the world. But do you also know who Marc Sparks is?
Who is Marc Sparks?
Marc Sparks is also another big entrepreneur. He is not just an entrepreneur, he is also a serial entrepreneur. It means he has a handful of businesses he owns, controls, and operates today. In fact, he is a venture capitalist that many entrepreneurs would want to present their businesses for funding purposes.
Before he became what he is today, Marc Sparks had been to a lot of failures. He started from almost nothing. It all began when he graduated in high school in 1975 in Austin, Texas. He was not able to pursue his college education. Instead, he began to put up some small start up businesses with very little amount of money to start with. Some of these became successful. Others were not. Despite the fact that he finished only high school with C average grade, he surpassed what college degree holders could do to succeed.
Although he went through a lot of failures, he didn’t stop taking all the challenges he faced until he found himself in the long run running his own business empire. Now, he is known to be the entrepreneurs’ entrepreneur because he helps other businesses succeed by acting as a venture capitalist to fund a potential business project or venture. With the success that Marc has achieved, he still can’t forget his poorest moment when he used to go to a gas station to buy some groceries, and the only thing he had at that time was his credit card.
