DALLAS, Jan. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — After over a decade at its original location, Marc Sparks of Timber Creek Capital, LP has moved offices to a setting optimized for collaboration and highly conducive to startup incubation. Marc Sparks, a serial entrepreneur and owner of the private equity firm, serves entrepreneurs in developing new businesses into revenue generating companies.
“The process of starting a business begins with building a business model and acquiring the resources to ensure success,” Marc Sparks explained. “With the design of Timber Creek Capital, LP we are able to host three different companies in our facility and offer an extensive incubation period. As a serial entrepreneur and student of what it takes to succeed in this world, I have found that a quality, conducive and collaborative work environment is no less than 25% of the overall ingredients necessary to succeed. For example, would you thrive better or be more inspired with your office in a warehouse where the windows were blacked out due to the sketchy (but up and coming)neighborhood or on the first floor of a retail space on 5thAvenue (NY) with lots of windows and successful people walking by? Obviously these are two extremes; however, the point is to remember NOT to cut corners on where you and your team spend most of their waking time as it truly can mean the difference between success and failure.”
Having started dozens of successful companies, Marc Sparks found there exists a special flow within an office that is required to maximize collaboration and output. Marc Sparks shares his journey in his book, They Can’t Eat You. In this book, Marc Sparks outlines a few successes, a few failures, and his journey to learning the realities of entrepreneurship. These experiences lead Marc Sparks to start Timber Creek Capital, LP, which embodies his 35 years of entrepreneurial experience to tackle the multiple stages of launching a sustainable business. Sparks takes on a handful of companies at a time and offers them mentorship and access to resources like banking, marketing, capital, office space, etc. The entrepreneur wants for nothing when they are folded into Timber Creek’s system.
“Through my years of experiences I understand challenges and devastating circumstances entrepreneurship can bring. My passion is to help entrepreneurs build their dream and companies to critical mass through my experience,” Marc Sparks said.
“Faith, passion, tenacity, focus, savvy of monetization, and an outrageous sense of urgency or as my team calls it ‘spark speed’ are qualities that have helped me succeed and that I like to mentor,” Sparks said. “I have seen every level of entrepreneurial success and failure and this is why Timber Creek Capital, LP is so qualified to help take on entrepreneurs’ ideas and turn them into prosperous business models.”
