Adam Milstein is also an adviser to aspiring entrepreneurs, who he teaches to be passionate about solving problems related to their business, and to remain consistent in how they handle their operation. He also feels that since criticism cannot be avoided in the business world, entrepreneurs should learn from it instead of feeling discouraged by it.

The proud Jewish businessman and father of 3 daughters was born in Haifa, Israel in 1952, and he currently resides in Encino, California with his family.
