One of his passions in life is to build successful companies. He often begins with an idea that others think are impossible to execute. Part of his successful business equation is to put together a positive and encouraging culture that inspires everyone involved to be a part of the success rather than just an accessory going along for the ride.
When Mark Sparks is asked how he manages to be so successful, he always attributes his success to a sense of urgency, monetization savvy, focus, tenacity, passion and faith. He mixes those qualities with great quantities of respect for others and honesty in all his endeavors and not just his business endeavors. His sense of urgency is referred to “Spark Speed.” If a task needs to be completed – just do it and get it done. Yes, give it the thought and consideration it needs, but don’t get lost in the details.
When Mr. Sparks puts on his philanthropic hat he supports a homeless shelter called The Samaritan Inn. Located in Texas, he and his wife adopted the facility and helped turn it from a small, run-down building into a full service facility that houses more than 150 individuals a night and feed hundreds every day. The average stay at the Inn is five months and the main purpose of the Inn is to help those who truly want to help themselves.
