Shervin Pishevar is a man known for his many words when it comes to various societal issues. He returned with a bang. Pishevar went to his most preferred social media platform, Twitter, to give his view of the American economy to his followers. A 21-hour rant of Twitter has been the topic of discussion of the valid of the arguments that he seemed to advance about an impending economic crisis in America. Stocks of some companies were shaken as a result of the opinions made by this respected entrepreneur and business leader. Indeed, many financial analysts seem to agree with some of his thoughts.
A careful analysis of the twitter rants by Shervin Pishevar seems to suggest that his tweets were thought out carefully since he seemed to be concerned with more than just the 6,000-point decline of the American economy. He deliberately chose to address various issues that are of concern to many Americans in regards to the economy including issues related to politics, nationalism, and culture. The scope of his tweets clearly indicates that Pishevar’s concern might be more than just concerns raised by an investor and businessperson. Rather, they are concerns raised by a patriotic individual concerned with the future of his society in general.
Many people have taken his 21-hour rant a bit serious because his previous predictions regarding the economy came to be. Shervin Pishevar is the same man who previously raised concerns about a potential future crisis for Facebook in terms of identity and approximately ten years after his article, his concerns lay bare for all to see as the company struggles with an identity-related crisis. In his 2008 article, Pishevar wrote, ‘While our financial systems lie teetering or near destruction, we realize we must build from the ground up a new system.’ The entrepreneur’s tendency to raise concerns that affect different societies in advance is responsible for the nationwide attention to his claims that an economic crisis is impending. It is a matter of time until the public finds out whether Shervin Pishevar’s concerns are genuine.
Robert Deignan, the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of ATS Digital Services was born in Florida, Fort Lauderdale and went to Purdue University under a football scholarship. After his graduation with an Organizational Leadership degree, he co-founded his first venture Franlink, Inc., in 1998 after spending some time with the Miami Dolphins in 1997. Robert, being good in sports, still takes part in offshore fishing competition tournaments and he currently lives with his family in Miami.
Robert came up with the ATS idea after working at an Anti-Malware Software Company that had challenges with software installation. Alongside his other colleagues, they decided to try a different software strategy that gave one up to15 free use days. In 2009, they introduced download page contact for customer inquiries due to the technical problems they were experiencing with the anti-malware product installation. As a result of these communications with users, they came to learn of discrepancies caused by malware products which were blocking this software. They decided to introduce technical methods by introducing in-house agents to remote users to remove the Malware. This method was a success and a fee was charged for this remote service since all computers were now effectively functioning. This was a two-way benefit because consumers enjoyed quality services and the team making gains from that.
The core productive habit he has as an entrepreneur is number analysis. Deignan views time as a valuable resource and its spending should be maximized based on the available revenue opportunities. Employing of family and friends is a risky habit and is highly disregarded by Robert because when business becomes tough, hard decisions can be made which include cutting paychecks and laying off extra personnel. Sometimes, he goes ahead to take the risk and ignore the linked feelings, and in as much as the outcome may fail to show immediately, they are eventually manifested.
His advice to entrepreneurs is that they should always analyze their ideas by putting them in a spreadsheet because numbers don’t lie and time is limited, these analyses can aid them in weighing options of pursuing a decision or not. Robert’s favorite quote is “don’t quit” and he has a desire for more money that comes as a result of working hard.
