Who is Michael J. Lindell?
Michael James ‘Mike’ Lindell was born under the zodiac sign of Cancer on 28 June 1961, in Mankato, Minnesota USA; he holds American nationality and his ethnicity is of mixed German, Swedish and Norwegian descent. He’s an entrepreneur, perhaps known best as the founder and chief executive officer (CEO) of My Pillow Incorporation, the company which manufactures pillows, bedding and slippers.
He was raised in Chaska and Carver, towns in Minnesota, but hasn’t disclosed any information regarding his childhood, his parents, or any siblings. It’s known that he attended a local high school, and upon matriculating in 1979, he enrolled at the University of Minnesota, but dropped out after a few months.
Michael had a gambling addiction through his teenage years, and started using drugs in his 20s, which became worse consuming cocaine, which lead to more debts until in the end he lost his family house.
At that time he was married to Karen Dickey, and they have four children together; after the foreclosure of their house, Karen filed for divorce, after 20 years of marriage.
During the years, after he dropped out from college, Michael operated various small businesses such as carpet cleaning, and a few restaurants and bars across Carver County, Minnesota.
In 2004, he invented the My Pillow – at first he apparently hand-sewed the pillows, and the first were was sold in 2005 from a mall kiosk in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.
During the following years, Michael was selling his pillows at various kiosks, trade shows, and state fairs.
In 2011, the company had an enormous success through an infomercial, a type of television commercial which ran around 200 times per day on various television networks; the company sold over 30 million pillows after the first infomercial was aired.
My Pillow Incorporation at present has over 50 employees, and 17 stores across Minnesota, Iowa, South and North Dakota, and Nebraska; it manufactures over 25,000 pillows per day, and in addition sells mattresses, toppers, covers, towels, and beds for pets.
Michael is also known as a conservative political activist and conspiracy theorist; he’s a prominent supporter of the former US President Donald Trump, and spread false conspiracy theories about fraud in the election when Trump lost.
Twitter permanently banned his account after his claims, and since this was disinformation, also banned his personal account. However, he then used the account established for his company My Pillow, and after several tweets, including one in which he spoke to Jack Dorsey, the chief executive officer of Twitter, saying that he should be arrested, Twitter permanently banned this account too.
During the pandemic of Coronavirus, Michael promoted a toxic extract of oleandrin as an alternative cure for Covid-19, saying: ‘This thing works – it’s the miracle of all time.’ In one of his television interviews, he made several misleading statements about the testing of this ‘magical cure,’ an allegation which alarmed scientists around the country who asserted that there is evidence that the plant Oleander is poisonous even in low doses; there is no scientific evidence that oleandrin is safe or effective against the Covid-19. Eventually, it was revealed that Michael is one of the directors of the Phoenix Biotechnology company, which is producing oleandrin.
Michael’s company used to make donations to the Salvation Army, Union Gospel Mission, and to other non-profit organizations. and he founded Lindell Foundation, helping people in need, such as veterans and those diagnosed with cancer. In 2019, Michael established the Lindell Recovery Network, to help drug addicts connect with those who went through the same problems and recovered successfully, so now they can help. Michael has spoken about his own drug addiction, saying that praying helped him to achieve sobriety.
The net worth of this 60 year old businessman, as of January 2022, has been estimated at $50 million.
