Biography

Lindell was born in Mankato, Minnesota, and was raised in Chaska and Carver, Minnesota.

Prior to inventing MyPillow, Lindell launched and operated a number of small businesses including raising pigs, carpet cleaning, lunch wagons, and a few bars and restaurants in Carver County, MN.

Lindell had been plagued with many addictions, including cocaine, crack cocaine, and alcohol addictions, with his cocaine addiction starting in 1982, and his crack cocaine addiction starting in the 1990s. His addictions even stretched through the early years of the MyPillow business. Due to these addictions, he lost his 20-year marriage, his house, and nearly lost the MyPillow business. On January 16, 2009, Lindell, through prayer, quit all his addictions, and has been clean and sober ever since.
