Entrepreneur Marc Sparks lays out his ideas for success in his book They Can’t You. He says that the book was extremely painful to write because he uses it to share the failures that he has experienced while creating over 70 startup companies.
He says that while it would be less painful to share only his successes, he believes that their are many more lessons to be learned from his failures like when he built an insurance holding company in his bedroom building it to a billion dollar market cap before loosing it all in under 90 days. Throughout the book, Marc reveals his six secrets to success.
The first secret to his success is his faith. He says that one of the most worthwhile things he has ever done in his life is to work with the people of The Samaritan Inn that serves over 160 residents a night. This program helps homeless people learn to be productive citizens with jobs and savings through providing them a hand up and not a hand out.
As Crunchbase puts it Marc Sparks says that he never starts a new business where he does not have a passion (https://about.me/marc_sparks). While some tease him that he is most passionate about hitting big whitetail deer in Texas, he says the truth is that he is most passionate about helping others. Another way that Marc helps others is through his involvement with Habitat for Humanity where he has helped construct over a dozen homes.
Furthermore, Marc says that any entrepreneur must have tenacity. He says that people who want to start their own company must have a firm grip on their current strengths and weaknesses. Marc is very active in supporting the Dallas area Can Academies. He says that he loves to interact with these students showing them that even though they may not come from the best of backgrounds, that they still can be a great success.

When focusing on starting a new business, he says that entrepreneurs must have a great sense of where they can find assets to build their businesses. He says that eight out of 10 new businesses fail because they run out of cash. Marc believes, however, that the problem runs much deeper than that. He says that most businesses fail because they are not in touch with their customers and fail to present how their products can enhance their customers lives.
Marc Sparks says that not everyone is set out to start new businesses. He knows from personal experience that it takes hours of hard work each day. Therefore, he says that only those individuals that are so passionate about succeeding that they cannot think of anything else should start a new business.
