Marc Sparks has owned several different businesses over his professional career. He started out in that telecommunication industry and has since owned several different companies of varying size. This started out with Splash Media based in the Dallas area. H moved on from there to own Blue Jay Wireless and also Cardinal Telecom. As an avid bird watcher and lover of nature, Marc Sparks would often name many of his companies after animals in order to reflect his love for the different animals. This is why many of his early telecommunication companies in Dallas took on names after these birds.
While working in that telecommunication industry, Marc Sparks also worked in real estate. He owns several properties throughout the metro Dallas area, most of which are rented out to businesses. He has found that renting out business property is typically much more valuable as the tenants are, hopefully, longer lasting than the average home renter. Once a tenant is in place, as long as the business proves successful the tenant might remain there for decades. Plus, by purchasing real estate around the property, it is possible to build up a business sector all without any sort of assistance from outside forces.
While working in the professional world, Marc Sparks also enjoys giving back to the local community throughout Dallas. He has been working with the Samaritan Inn, which is a homeless shelter for the last nearly three decades. He can often be seen inside of the building providing food or offering other services to those less fortunate. He has also worked with Habitat for Humanity in order to help build homes for those in need while providing assistance to American Can!, which is a magnet program high school in Dallas.
To go along with all of the other options and services Marc Sparks provides, he also is writing a book about how anyone can become successful in the world of business. The book is called “They Can’t Eat You” and it covers his personal life.
