Unlike most people, Adam Milstein knew his worth way before others came to terms with it. Adam Milstein did not grow up in the USA and this affected his chances of gaining meaningful employment upon graduation. At the time, recruiters offered him less than what undergraduates were earning then, forcing him to look for an alternative means of earning what he deserved. After completing his Masters studies at USC, he ventured into real estate, starting his career as a real estate broker. Over the next three years, he grew very successful in his chosen career path, and put up his own business, Hager Pacific Properties, with his business partner, David Hager. Adam Milstein acknowledges his business partner as a visionary in the industry. He also acknowledges the need for pushing until a vision becomes a reality, saying persistence, consistency, and follow-up, have contributed to his success as an entrepreneur.
Adam Milstein on Succeeding in Entrepreneurship
Adam offers entrepreneurs various tips to ensure they also succeed in business. To begin with, he emphasizes that no two days are ever the same for an entrepreneur. Consequently, entrepreneurs should be open-minded but focused to ensure they achieve their greater goal. Additionally, he says that setting goals is important, but entrepreneurs should realize that failing in business is part of the journey. Self-doubt and criticism should also not be at the forefront of one’s mind if an entrepreneur is looking to succeed in business. Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever does. From experience, Adam Milstein has learned that good things take time. They can, therefore, not be rushed, but that in no way implies that one should slack in what they are doing. Instead, entrepreneurs should put in the hard work needed to see anything through. Above all, he says that for entrepreneurs to succeed, they need to take the time to truly understand the problem they are trying to solve. Consequently, they should aim to have an in-depth knowledge of the field they are in and to gain deeper understanding of how things work in the industry.
When he is not making headway in the world of entrepreneurship, Adam Milstein takes part in different philanthropic causes. He sits on the boards of several organizations, but his philanthropic work has majorly been centered on strengthening ties in the Israeli-Jewish-American community in America.
