I was reading some business article and I found the word "milepost". I was looking for it in dictionaries but the only thing I can find is the word "milestone" which is known to me.

A milestone is a significant event in your life. Often a milestone marks the start of a new chapter. For example, the day you graduated from high school was a milestone in your life.

so what is milepost? Is it synonym to milestone?

    A great tip. While searching on Google, search like this: 'x' meaning. And, it'll show the definition. In your case, search 'milepost meaning'. Searching is also a trick! ;) – Maulik V Jun 15 '15 at 10:30
  • We would need to see the context. The word could be used like milestone or differently. (google.com/…) – Tᴚoɯɐuo Jun 15 '15 at 10:51

  • not my downvote, but the logic of Katarina Kacu is hard to understand. :-) What's the point in asking something without context? – user18856 Jun 15 '15 at 12:53

Yes - in that context, a milepost is the same as a milestone, although here in the UK, 'milepost' is not very common; milestone being more widely used.
