Career and History of Robert Deignan

Robert Deignan is the CEO and one of the founders at ATS Digital Services, a company that offers digital assistance to its customers who are scattered all over the world. The company’s digital support ranges from general troubleshooting, connectivity issues among many others.

Deignan grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where he attended St. Thomas Aquinas High School. He later received a football scholarship to study at Purdue University where he graduated with a degree in Business management. Robert co-founded Fanlink Inc. after spending a short spell as a football player at NY Jets and Miami Dolphins in 1998 and 1997 respectively. He currently stays with his family in Miami.

Robert used the experience and knowledge earned from his previous job in a software company to start ATS Digital Services. While working there, Robert and his colleagues encountered difficulties in installing anti-malware products into machines owned by users. With time, they discovered the people who always blocked their efforts to do the installation and found a solution thereafter. They used one of their digital support agents to remotely link up with the user’s machine and remove the malware that blocked the installation of the software.

This strategy led to a massive customer satisfaction at the company and increased their trust in the brand. Together, they realized they could make money from successfully blocking the malware as well as ensuring that the computers are in good condition. When he later left the Anti-Malware Company, Robert tapped into this experience to help in the establishment of ATS Digital Services.

Speaking to Gazetteday, Robert highlighted some of the tips that have been key in his successful business career: First, Robert Deignan urges people to always trust their gut feeling when making both big and small decisions. According to him, doing something that feels right to you will always be well with you even if difficulties are experienced. Second, he advises people to always hire for culture, employers should strive to not only look at the academic qualification of an employee but whether the candidate meets the job requirements. Sometimes, highly intelligent employees turn out to be the bad ones.

A Great Twitter Tirade From Shervin Pishevar

You could definitely call it a Twitter tirade if you wanted to. Shervin Pishevar recently went on a fifty tweet, twenty-one hour tweet storm related to all of his ideas about the economy and the state of the world as it stands right now. It was something that inspired a lot of people to take another look at the way things are right now.

Shervin Pishevar has always turned heads when he speaks or writes. He has frequently been right about the predictions that he makes. For example, Shervin Pishevar is probably most famous as an early investor in Airbnb. He staked his capital in a company that people thought would never work out at the time. Now, the company has grown to such an extent that it is a household name. That clearly made Shervin Pishevar a lot of money for his personal bank account. Why then would we now also listen to what he has to say about the world economy as a whole? The truth is, that is exactly what we should do.

The tweets started by talking about how Pishevar believes that the stock market is overdue for a correction. That was followed by tweets about Bitcoin, China, and the American Dream (this guy has range!).

The talk about a stock market correction was something that some people scoffed at. They could not believe that someone would suggest that the precious stock market might fall after the kind of run that it has been having as of late. However, there is little doubt in the mind of Shervin Pishevar that this is going to happen. He was therefore pleased in a way when just three days after he posted these tweets, the stock market began to tank by more than one-thousand points. He quickly dubbed it the “#TrumpDump“.

It is not as though his predictions always start to come true so quickly or even at all. It is about the fact that he is more often right than wrong when it comes to these kind of things. Knowing that, we should all consider our options when it comes to who we take advice from and why we do so.
