Marc Sparks Advice For Entrepreneurs

If an individual went through a lot of struggles as they were progressing through their life, he or she will want to pass on wisdom to others going through similar trials. There is much that can be done to avert struggles.

A man who suffered embarrassment while dating or in some other context in high school may want his son to avoid that, so he will share his wisdom. In his about.me page, Marc Sparks has done something similar. Since he has gone through a lot throughout the course of his journey (as narrated in his book They Can’t Eat You), he actively labors to share his wisdom with people who are going through something similar. In this article Sparks shared a bit of his wisdom so that young entrepreneurs would be able to take steps toward success.

Focus

If we apply ourselves, we can accomplish anything. Marc Sparks believes that the key to success is internal rather than external. It is about focusing one’s mind and inclining oneself to achieve what he or she has always wanted to.

The reason that people fail is that they give in to a negative mental disposition, which informs them that they will fail and that they should quit. But Sparks believes that focus is the key to success and through that, one can accomplish anything.

Presentations

Communication is central to everything that we do. If you are going into a job interview, you need to be able to relay to the potential employer the reasons that you would be an ideal candidate.

Even if you do have strong skills in your industry, you will not succeed if you cannot communicate those skills to other people. An unskilled person can even convince a potential employer to hire them on the basis of their communication skills. A proper presentation can define success. Sparks believes that there are three ingredients to a good presentation. Read more: Marc Sparks – President @ Timber Creek Capital and Spark Tank DFW

A Real Story Theories will only get us so far. Rather than focusing on what might work, Sparks believes that it is important to focus on what has worked. That is what captivates an audience.

Good Images It can be easy to zone out during a presentation. People often have a very short attention span when reading a big blog of text or listening to somebody drone on for a long time. An well-constructed image will keep the attention of the audience.

Simplicity You have a lot of knowledge.

But technical jargon can be overbearing. Explain it in simple terms. Use The Team Everybody on your team has different skills. Bring them in to the presentation so that the audience can see what everybody is contributing.

Fabletics Moving To Brick and Mortar Shops

Just recently an active wear brand known as Fabletics announced that they will be opening several more store fronts around the country, according to an article on Racked.com. Fabletics was first launched online but has since opened actual brick and mortar stores. The company plan to expand up to 100 stores over the next 3-5 years according to the co-CEO of JustFab, Adam Goldenberg. The Kate Hudson active wear line has been under allegations in recent months as some customers complained that the subscription model run by the company was a scam. However things are looking up as problems are being ironed out.

Shifting from being purely online to allowing for a brick and mortar store gives customers and opportunity to actually try on the clothing in person. Activewear can be difficult to size when buying online as different brands use different fitments. Fabletics is also known to provide customers with an option for a subscription service that will be charged to their credit cards accordingly. The monthly subscription will send out outfits that have been Kate Hundson approved, giving members the opportunity to stay ahead of the active wear trend and enjoying the newest combinations and colors.

In the past customers had complained that they did not remember agreeing to the subscription service and then found it very difficult to opt out. The parent company of Fabletics, JustFab and its co-CEO Adam Goldenberg told Forbes that the number of complaints had slowly been declining as issues were being addressed. He said the vast majority of the users really liked the subscription. 800 000 items were typically shipped out on a monthly basis which proves of its popularity.

The Better Business Bureau commented on the question by Forbes wether customer complaints were on the decline. They confirmed the claim but also said the reason for complaint numbers reducing was due to the parent company and Fabletics listing its subsidiaries separately.

Fabletics has been doing their best improve their customer experience by addressing the system as well as re-writing the FAQ section on the website. This should improve the over all understanding of the subscription by the customer says Adam Goldenberg.

The company had initially started in October 2013 and has come a long way from being a women specific brand to now also providing a mens line. Their idea with the brand was to fill a gap that existed within active wear. This gap was the quality vs affordability which was not evident at the time. They have succeeded and the small brand is steadily growing.
