EMCEE: Michael J. Lindell, Inventor and CEO, MyPillow
Born in Mankato, Minnesota, Mike invented an open-cell, poly-foam MyPillow in 2004 and grew the MyPillow business into a major manufacturing company with 1,600 employees and 43 million pillows sold by 2018. He now produces over 85,000 pillows per day and has expanded his product line to include quality sheets and mattress tops.
In March 2017, he produced “The Mike Lindell Story: An American Dream”, a documentary about overcoming drug addiction and building a multimillion-dollar business.
Mike also established the Lindell Foundation, a faith-based organization focused on helping individuals with addictions, work issues, spousal conflict, health crises, and assisting veterans facing challenges after service to our country.
In addition, Mike created the Lindell Recovery Network to “bring hope, recovery, and mentorship” to those fighting drug addictions. The Lindell Recovery Network was highlighted in an October 24, 2018, Opioid Crisis meeting hosted by President Trump at the White House before a group of 21 other private-sector and non-profit partners.
Mike is unabashed about sharing his faith in God and his involvement in the Pro-Life movement. Recently, he supported production of the movie “Unplanned” and has a cameo in the final minutes of the film in which he bulldozes a Planned Parenthood sign.
“I’m Pro-Life and I was happy to do it!” he said.
We are blessed to have Mike Emcee Hosea’s first
