Adam Milstein is a native Israeli and served in the Yom Kippur War. He graduated from the Technion in 1978. He arrived in the US in 1981 and earned an MBA in entrepreneurship from USC. Before graduating, job recruiters came to campus but they were offering little money so he decided to go out on his own. He believes that following up, consistency, and persistency is what makes him productive. Adam Milstein also believes he has made good choices in life but he did have one failure when trying to make a quick fortune. While he was in school in Israel, he bought a large amount of art that he had been selling to temples and it took quite a while to get rid of all the inventory, and Twitter.com.
