Welcome to the official site of author, speaker, & certified development coach, Anthony D. Sparks!

I'm so humbled that you've taken time to swing by and check out the site!

I'm a firm believer that my purpose is to help others live a life OF purpose, ON purpose; so, as you browse the site, I hope you come across something that puts that mission in motion!  

Thanks so much for visiting and I look forward to working with you!


One of the most inspirational, compassionate and up in your face with the truth speakers I have ever heard. Mr. Sparks does not sugarcoat the truth, he just tells it like it is in a comfortable language that his audience understands. I could listen to his instruction and true life experiences and use them in everyday practical scenarios
