Adam’s idea of Hager Pacific Properties developed in him after being undermined while looking for employment immediately after his graduation. Most employees offered him less than what undergraduate students were earning. He started off as a Real Estate Commercial broker for three years before fully investing in real estate.
The strategy of not setting specific goals has made Mr. Milstein successful. Setting specific goals limited his ability and desire to do many things. He deafened his ears to criticism and was self-driven. He worked as hard as he could. His habit of understanding problems in the business has made him a successful entrepreneur. He like being part of the solution and does not rely on people to solve his problems.
His typical days are made more satisfying when he does philanthropy activities. Adam worked hard and pushed his ideas into reality. Adam does regular follow-ups on his ideas to ensure that they are turned into reality.
