The life story of Marc Sparks will be detailed in a future book he is writing, They Can’t Eat You which explains his path from being a C student in high school to the fantastic success he enjoys and shares with others, today. This progression from mediocre student to a giant in the business world is an observable phenomenon for observant students of life. Many begin to realize that success can come to those who are not the best and the brightest.
In fact, there are many brilliant businessmen who were not great students, and more surprisingly many of them had learning problems and even dyslexia. In the case of Sparks, as in the many other instances of brilliant businessmen, having average or poor school grades and even problems with learning did not deter them from their paths to greatness.
From experience, we know that success is a difficult status to obtain. Sparks has proven himself worthy of accolades not just for his business success but for his philanthropy. His giving back to his community is a testament to his real worth as a human being.
