What happens when you go to grad school and feel that you are not being offered what you feel you are worth? For Adam Milstein, it was a no brainer. It was time to become an entrepreneur. Knowing full well that he would need a little experience before breaking out on his own, he worked as a Real Estate Commercial Broker for three years and then began investing on his own.
A day in Adam Milsteins’ life is honestly different depending on what he is doing that day; however, he has found solidarity and happiness when these things involve the philanthropies he supports. He works by himself a lot, realizing that if it must be done it is up to him.
Adam Milstein does find real estate to be exciting as well because people never know what is going to happen with the market. It can be a supply market for years and then flip to a demand market in one day. How then, does one keep winning in a volatile market? “Follow up, consistency and persistency” according to Milstein.
He also notes that not listening to criticism and remembering that becoming wealthy takes time were also important to his growth as a successful businessman.
Milstein started his career as a member of the Israeli Defense Forces and then went to college. While working to obtain his Bachelor’s degree in Business and Economics, he worked alongside his father, expanding their construction and real estate business. Before getting his graduate degree from the University of Southern California, he got married and had two daughters with his wife.

Many of the philanthropies he supports helps Israeli’s in America feel like they have a community of their own, from giving children a chance to read in Hebrew to helping young professionals identify with their Jewish roots.
What started out as someone wanting to find a way on their own became a way for millions of Jewish people feeling pride in who they are because of one man.
