One of the driving factors behind whether a company is going to be a success or a failure is the purpose behind it. It is not so much the purpose itself as it is the motivation that it gives the business owner. This is one of the reasons that it is important for people to find a purpose that they are passionate about. This will give them the motivation and the energy to pursue what it is that they are after. They are also more likely to pay more attention to the journey and not be so concerned with the destination.
Among the people who are very successful because of their purpose is Adam Milstein. He is a successful entrepreneur and philanthropist. He is very involved in the community and wants to be one of the factors in the improvement of the lives of others. As a matter of fact, this is not just the driving factor behind how successful and hardworking Adam Milstein is. Adam has taken the time to make sure that he has set up a business where he actually earns from helping others. He has founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation with his wife among other activities.
Adam Milstein would consider himself an active philanthropist. For one thing, his whole career is based around philanthropy. He meets with plenty of organizations throughout the year in order to learn of new ways that he can be of benefit to society. After all, his dream is to give people the resources they need in order to improve their lives. They also have somewhere to go if they are faced with a large hurdle. This is one of the factors that have people looking to Adam as a very influential Jew in his community. He is also very prominent among people who are involved in other aspects of life.
A philanthropist, an investor and a leader in the community, Adam Milstein is an Israeli native who served in the Yom Kippur war in the IDF. Graduating from Technion in 1978, Milstein earned an MBA from USC after coming to the US in 1981. In 1983, he began a career in Southern California commercial real estate. Mr. Milstein is a managing partner with Hager Pacific Properties, a firm that handles commercial real estate investment.
Adam Milstein started his own business after receiving his MBA, being dissatisfied with the the offerings of existing firms. Offered less than an undergraduate and feeling they wouldn’t appreciate his skills and life experiences, Adam Milstein struck out on his own to become a commercial real estate broker. After three years of success as a broker, he moved on to become a real estate investor.
When asked how he brought ideas to life he had this to say, “I push until they become reality. If someone else can’t do it, you should do it yourself. I do a lot by myself. I also follow-up on a daily basis and don’t let anything fall between the cracks.” Adam feels that “Follow up, consistency, and persistence” are qualities that make him more productive, and that one should always understand things themselves rather than depending on others. He also says to follow up on every lead and that “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take!”
As a Philanthropist, Adam Milstein focuses on work to improve and strengthen the Jewish people and the state of Israel and works the Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation to support many other charities.
Adam Milstein lives in Encino, California with his wife Gina. They have three children and three grandchildren together.
