Recently, Adam Milstein had an interview with Ideamensch. His very first question was where he got the idea to start Hager Properties. To answer that question, Milstein stated that he had been a real estate commercial broker since completing his studies. He has come to this decision on realizing that no one was willing to give him a remuneration that would show appreciation for his education experience. This decision turned out to be a success. Three years down the line, working as a real estate broker, he decided to go solo. Milsten told Ideamensh that his business has been such a success because he does not rely on people to do what he should be doing. His advice is that entrepreneurs should be the first to come to work and last to leave the office.s
