“Artist Gene Palusky struggled financially in the early 1980s to make a living off his passion for creating ceramic sculptures. So, the handy Macalester College grad started repairing old properties.
Palusky moved into a house in Minneapolis’ Bryn Mawr neighborhood in 1987, renovated it and made a few thousand bucks on the sale two years later. He made $13,000 on the next one, after five months of ownership. There were others. He bought, renovated and operated apartment buildings.”
