Michael James Lindell, better known as the My Pillow Guy, is a businessman, political activist, and far-right conspiracy theorist from the United States.
He is the founder and CEO of MyPillow, one of US’s most successful pillow firms. Here, you can read about his net worth, earnings, age, wife, and recent news.
Lindell was born in Mankato, Minnesota, in 1961. He grew up in Chaska and Carver, Minnesota. After completing high school, he enrolled at the University of Minnesota but dropped out after only a few months. He built up his gambling and cocaine addiction in his early years. He would frequently participate in daredevil-esque stunts, many of which nearly killed him.
Lindell started and ran several small companies in Carver County, Minnesota, including carpet cleaning, lunch trailers, and a few taverns and restaurants in the 1980s. In 2004, he created a revolutionary pillow that would hold its shape called “My Pillow”. Since 2011, the pillow business has been becoming popular and more successful every day. His product range has now grown to include mattresses, linens, and pet beds.
After getting banned from Twitter in 2021, Lindell expressed his desire to launch his own social media platform titled “Frank Social”. Unfortunately, unlike his previous business idea, this one didn’t launch successfully due to its pre-Facebook era look. The businessman is also involved in philanthropic acts. He was a vocal supporter of Donald Trump.
He has established the “Lindell Foundation”, a non-profit organization that helps former addicts obtain treatment and other assistance. The foundation’s outreach grew over time, and it now helps cancer patients and veterans too. He also established the “Lindell Recovery Network” in 2019, which connects addicts with others who have previously experienced drug addiction and recovery.
