Most people know Robert Deignan as an established entrepreneur and business owner, but very few are familiar with his professional journey. Before Robert Deignan co-founded ATS Digital Services, a technological company, it took him over a decade chasing this dream. Today, Deignan boasts of two decades of entrepreneurial experience. The journey began in his hometown of Fort Lauderdale. As a young boy, Robert had a strong passion for sports, especially football. This passion led him to earn a scholarship in 1992 to pursue a BS. in Organization Leadership at Purdue University. He graduated in 1998, after which he had spells with the NY Jets and Miami Dolphins before initiating his professional chase.
Robert Deignan first got into entrepreneurship in 1998, three years after college, when he co-founded Franklin Inc., a technology firm. The company provided him with the opportunity to exercise his skills as an entrepreneur in the technology world. He would use the platform to provide innovative solutions to thousands of customers in America. His desire to make it big in the technology world grew, and three years later, he left Franklin Inc. and joined iS3, another technology firm. The company deals with computer optimization and digital security.
At iS3, Robert found it challenging to install software on most machines due to malware complications. So, together with his partner, they thought of creating a firm that would provide anti-malware services along with other digital solutions. Thus the idea of ATS Digital Services was born. It took them two years to try it, and in 2011, they established the software company. ATS is a one-stop digital shop that provides a range of digital solutions such as network connections, device connection, software installation, and data storage.
Currently, Robert Deignan resides in Miami with his wife and child. In spite of being a CEO of a busy digital brand, he still finds time to pursue sports. For example, he occasionally competes in fishing tournaments in Miami. Perhaps a balance between the personal and professional helps keep Robert Deignan’s entrepreneurial spirit alert and alive.

Usually, conflicts don’t get better without proactive intervention, so by tackling the problem right away, you create a culture of success. Avoid enduring personalities that don’t mesh with the program because value leeches impede the evolution of businesses. People also like to be affiliated with winners because it rubs off on them. Praise and encourage people who bring problems to light quickly. Spend your time with people who are making big wins as you’re the sum of the people you spend the most time with. With the right team, most obstacles are just a bump in the road, value your comrades, and always love your clients. Lastly, reward healthy risk-taking in the pursuit towards growth.
