Robert Deignan is a man whose life achievements serve as exemplary objectives for aspiring business professionals who both diligently and passionately seek personal growth and success in entrepreneurship. Today, Deignan is the very affluent and proud Founder/CEO of the globally utilized company ATS Digital Services and he came to be so because he did more than just wish on his success. Unlike so many other people who would rather choose to pursue a profession for money over personal happiness, Deignan was one who firmly believed in setting goals within his passions—a life choice that ultimately enabled him to reap maximum benefits.
For Deignan, growing up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida during his youth was not only significant in the fact that it was his hometown, but that it was also a culturally rich environment that influenced him to participate in social activities. As a child, Deignan enjoyed playing football so much that his proficiency within the sport enabled him to receive a full football scholarship to college during his senior year of school at St. Thomas Aquinas High School. Using his scholarship, he enrolled to be a student at Purdue University where he studied business from 1992-1995 to receive his Business Management degree. After college, Deignan played for the New York Jets and Miami Dolphins in the NFL from 1997-1998. Nevertheless, once his pursued career within football was fulfilled, Deignan mentally presumed that he was ready to endeavor within the field of business. Furthermore, after involving himself within several business projects as the co-founder of Fanlink, Inc., the Executive Vice President of iS3, and as an employee for an Anti-Malware Software Company, Deignan became CEO of his own company when he launched ATS Digital Services in August 2011. Under his management, ATS Digital has come to be a very successful, convenient, and financially resourceful customer tech repair service that offers the specialized application of screen-sharing technology.
Yet, for those entrepreneurial individuals who seek to obtain the same amount of success as Deignan, he has but a few simple words of business advice for aspiring professionals to follow. In order to be prosperous as a business leader, Deignan states that one must always trust their gut instinct when making business decisions and analyze the numbers to interpret investment risks. According to Deignan, hesitating when making important business decisions can prove to be detrimental to the growth of business and failing to do the research could cost an investor significant loss in time and money. Next, Deignan advises people to only employ those who satisfy the needs of the company, but to avoid hiring relatives and close acquaintances to prevent the issue of miss-management. Lastly, Deignan mentions that no existing company will be able to maintain its potential to thrive if the leader of the company does not take the time out for himself/herself everyday to clear their mind and reset for free-flow of new/creative ideas.
