Adam Milstein is known in the Jewish community and beyond as an activist, philanthropist, community leader, and businessman. In an interview, he was asked what is one strategy that he uses to grow his business. To him, he explained, goals are limiting and stop you from reaching your full potential. He explained that he is very self driven and always works as hard as he could. Since that is so, he just does his very best and knows that it is his very best, without having to worry about goals. In addition, he added that you have to do what is right and what will bring you to success while ignoring those who belittle you and criticize you and those who say that you are being used and abused. You have to realize that if you are in real estate, it will take a few years to make money.
When asked what was one failure he had as an entrepreneur and how he overcame it, Adam explained that it was wanting to achieve huge success in a very short amount of time. You have to realize that the long way is the real way towards success, as opposed to the short way. In addition, you can not put all your time, money, and effort into one thing hoping that it will pay off immediately. As an example, Adam Milstein points to an experience he had as an entrepreneur. As a student, he was selling art to clients, who were usually temples in Israel. Since it was going well in the beginning, Adam decided to buy a large stock. However, in the end, they did not sell as he expected. In retrospect, he realizes, he shouldn’t have tried to make a large fortune overnight.
Adam Milstein the President of the Adam and Gila Milstein Foundation. He focuses on strengthening the Jewish people and the State of Israel.
