So What’s the Secret?
So what’s the secret to all of his success? Follow up, persistence, and consistency in all aspects of life. Adam Milstein had run his personal and professional life with those habits and it has led him up the ladder of success.
In a recent article on ideamensch.com, he recounted his struggles from his arrival in the United States and his subsequent success in real estate. He arrived in America with the idea to be a successful businessman. He obtained his USC MBA but learned that the job market wasn’t offering the kind of money he needed to support his family. So, instead of settling for a lesser paying position, he struck out on his own, forming Hager Pacific Properties with David Hager.
What Does He Recommend?
Adam gets to the point when advising budding entrepreneurs. He said people need to view their success as a long game, his biggest mistake was trying to get too successful too fast. In the article, he said, “The way to succeed is not the quick way but the long way.”
His next recommendation is to stay focused on the most important thing in life, family. The best $100 he recently spent was on a meal with his family.
His third piece of advice is to always follow up on every contact and lead received. Don’t let them slip by, the ignored one might be the one that leads to a great deal.
