When a person is just starting out in the business world, it is important for that person to seek advice and tips from those who are already successful entrepreneurs. Robert Deignan of ATS Digital Services is a who has offered important advice for those starting out.

During his time in the business world, Robert Deignan has found that one of the most important things that he does is to follow his gut when making business decisions. He advises other entrepreneurs to do the same thing. According to Mr. Deignan, a person’s business is a very personal thing. Each individual knows where he or she wants the business to go. If a business proposal or idea seems right in the gut, one should go with that feeling.
Mr. Deignan also advises budding entrepreneurs to always crunch the numbers to fully confirm any gut feelings. Facts and numbers are vital in order to make a final decision that will be the correct decision.
Robert Deignan also has some important advice when it comes to hiring people who will work in one’s company. He believes that it is important to hire for culture. A person’s credentials aren’t the only criteria. A person has to have the qualities that will allow that person to fit in with others in the company and with the company’s plans and goals.
According to Mr. Deignan, it’s also important that entrepreneurs not hire family and close friends. When close relationships are part of a business decision, it can make it harder to make the correct decision for the bottom line.
Finally, Mr. Deignan advises those in business to always find time for themselves. It’s not beneficial to work oneself too hard. Creativity can be generated when a businessperson takes time to relax and rejuvenate.
