Find all the net worth, salary details of American business, and founder of 'My Pillow Inc,' Mike Lindell.
For the longest of time, we've recognized Mike Lindell as the 'My Pillow Guy.' He's one of the successful businessmen who's built their career from scratch after suffering from a problematic past.
The American entrepreneur started his company back in 2009 and ended up becoming a commercially successful brand all over the country. To date, the company has sold over 41 million pillows, mostly due to their heavy infomercials on the television.
Besides Lindell's thriving business, he's known all over the media for a different matter altogether, and that is his interest in politics, or should we say, Donald Trump in particular. Recently he stirred the media after taking part in the unfounded election fraud claims of the ex-president.
Today we have all the complete details on the entrepreneur, how he started his company, and his current net worth.

The 59-year-old started his company with mere five employees, which have now scaled to over 1500 as of 2021. He's successfully made a staggering net worth profile of $50 million for himself from all of this.
One of the backbones of the success of MyPillows would be the infomercials, and it would have to as Lindell allegedly spent $100 million on them. Since then, the sales rocketed drastically from $100,000 to close to $300 million.
