Adam Milstein: Jewish Entrepreneur and Philanthropist

Adam Milstein was born to two emigrant-parents. His father, Hillel Milshtein, immigrated from Argentina; and his mother, Eva Temkin, immigrated from Mexico. The two young lovers met while Hillel served as a combat sailor during Israel’s independence war. A year later, the couple married and settled in Haifa, Israel.

Adam and his siblings, Joshua and Dalit, were born in Haifa. Because of their father’s work, the family moved to Kiryat Motzkin, where Adam spent his childhood. In 1971, Adam joined the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). He was part of the Ariel Sharon’s army Division and served during the Yom Kippur War.

After completing his mandatory service, Adam enrolled in the Israeli Institute of Technology, the Technion. While attending the Technion, Adam worked with his father. Together, they expanded the family’s real estate construction and development business. AdamMilstein also married his girlfriend, Gila Elgrably in Haifa.

He graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in business and economics. In 1974, he moved his entire family to the United States. Shortly after arriving, Adam’s wife gave birth to their third daughter. Adam decided to further his education more and attend the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Two years later, he earned a Master of Business Administration degree.

While at the University of Southern California, he overheard some recruiters hiring some undergraduates. He listened to what they had to say and didn’t think they were offering what he felt he was worth. He’d worked in the real estate industry in Israel and had more experience than the undergraduates.

So, he decided to join the commercial real estate industry on his own. Within three years, he was a successful sales agent and had begun investing in some of his commercial properties. He even brought his father in on some of the deals.

After establishing a renowned reputation in the industry, Adam dedicated his life to philanthropic endeavors. Mainly, he wanted to strengthen the Jewish people and the State of Israel. He also wanted to improve U.S. – Israel relations.

Dr. Avi Weisfogel Brings to Light that Sleep Apnea is Completely Treatable: When the Correct Institutional Provider Notices its Symptoms in the Patient He Generally Treats:

Dr. Avi Weisfogel is one entrepreneur on a mission: He wishes to place his Dental Sleep Masters’ program into the hands of as many Dentists and Physicians, as possible, in order to provide important details about a very serious sleep disorder. He further wishes to bring to the attention of the general public the critical condition of Sleep Apnea.The condition of Sleep Apnea, according to the personable Dr. Avi Weisfogel is a condition that goes highly undiagnosed. The problem is that the symptoms, associated with the sleep malfunction, are pertinent to other possible health concerns.However, once the professional is properly educated about the enormity of the problem and knows how to identify the sleep disorder, with respect to the patients he sees each day, or in that of new patients; he is in the position of recommending proper treatment options–relative to the severity of the apnea.

According to Dr. Avi Weisfogel:

Apneas generally happen during periods of sleep. When the apnea occurs, sleep is disrupted due to insufficient breathing or a lack of oxygen, occurring in the blood steam. The person, experiencing the apnea, may completely awaken. Other times, the patient comes out of a very deep level of sleep into that of a shallow sleep level.Dr. Weisfogel, further emphasized the fact that apenas are generally measured during sleep. It is preferable to measure the apnea during all stages of sleep; and over a two-hour time-period.

The critical aspect of the Apnea is measured by dividing the number of apneas, by the sleep hours. In so doing, the sleeper, as well as the participating professional, each acquire an apnea index: AI is relative to apneas per hour. The rule applied is that the greater the apnea index–the greater is the severity of the apnea. Naturally, the measurement of apneas is one way in determining the severity of the apnea.Since there are three different types of apneas, and each patient is different, the person, wishing to make the true determination, as to the critical aspect of the apnea, consults with the healthcare institutional specialist. The Dental practitioner or Physician, in making use of a program, such as the Dental Sleep Masters’ program, according to the knowledgeable sleep specialist, Dr. Avi Weisfogel, can make all of the difference in the world.

 

John Goullet is the Principal of a Company with a Purpose

John Goullet humbly started his career as a computer consultant, but soon rose up the corporate ladder and was able to form his own company, Info Technologies, an IT staffing company. His business focus included understanding the wishes of his individual clients while having an appreciation for the corporate structure and being fully committed to honest business principles. Goullet has worked and studied the complicated IT industry and knows every aspect of its complex workings. Early in his business life, he saw the benefit of forming partnerships with other executives and businesses and soon merged with Diversant LLC.

Diversant proudly represents a company that is primarily African-American owned and operated. Goullet has instilled a sense of professional respect and ethics to the members of his staff. His dedication to teamwork has enabled Diversant to rise above other similar firms in the industry. He expects his employees to maintain a sense of creativity and problem solving that is needed in the modern business world.
