Adam Milstein sat down with Ideamensch to discuss his life, what makes him tick, and how he spends his time. Here is a little about this inspiring philanthropist and real estate investor.
Mr. Milstein is a native of Israel and was born Haifa in 1952. He served during the Yom Kippur War in the Israel Defense Forces. After serving in the army he graduated with a degree from Technion in 1978. Three years later he moved to America with his wife Gila. He then continued his education at the University of Southern California where he received his Master of Business Administration. After getting some disappointing offers that paid less than what a undergraduate would make, he decided to go his own way. He started by working as a commercial real estate broker. Several years later, Adam became a real estate investor himself. That was the beginning to a very successful career. The busy guy cannot go a day without working on some kind of philanthropy because it gives him the most satisfaction in life. On top of that, he has never had a bad job and does not having regrets about his life. He has always tried his best and loves giving back to humanity.
