This foundation will send out books monthly to over 15,000 families in America that are in Hebrew.
Adam Milstein always knew that he wanted to be successful. He always knew that he wanted to help others in the Jewish community to get familiar with their heritage and to have a better understanding of their roots. In order for Adam to do this, he had to first be successful in business. Once he started to see the success come in, Adam Milstein knew that it was time for him to give back. Once he began to give back as much as he was getting, Adam noticed that he had a new love for working.
Adam works hard to make sure that everything he wants becomes a reality. He wants to do something that someone else has not yet been able to do. He knows for this to happen, he has to put effort and time into his business endeavors. The one piece of advice that he wants others to know is; you must follow up on things daily if you expect anything to change or anything to prosper. There are a number of things that he does independently on a day to day basis but then there are other things that he has the business partner for. Either way, one of them is checking up on things every day.
