Born in a small German town at the dawn of World War II, Peter Paulsen was raised by a resourceful, resilient single mother, and immigrated with his family to the United States at age eighteen.
With a strong work ethic and a belief in the power of positive thinking, Peter went from journeyman bricklayer to starting his own masonry company at age twenty-one.
Before Peter turned thirty, he was developing high-quality, single-family homes and apartment complexes that he designed himself.
At every turn, Peter used his abilities and passion for reading, learning, and continually reimagining his goals to build one success on top of another.
Spanning nine decades, From Brick and Mortar to Prosperity: How I Created Wealth tells Peter’s story, from his boyhood in Germany to his active and satisfying life today, investing in stocks and using his foundation, the Peter Paulsen Foundation, to give back to his community and others.
