They say dreams are those which don’t let you sleep. How about if that statement goes literally for someone and earn him $20 billion in return!

Now to make things simpler, let us tell you that Mike Lindell is a man who once faced trouble in sleeping.

In pursuit of solving this problem, today the billionaire Lindell is also fondly called ‘The Pillow King.’

The Pillow King was born in Mankato, Minnesota, but later shifted and brooded in the city Chaska.

He quit his education half-way because he realized his destiny was somewhere else.

When a teenager he generally faced difficulty in sleeping because he found his pillow very uncomfortable, leaving him in the half-drowsed state throughout the day. It was that phase when sub conciously, he notice his difficulty in a half-dream.

When he gained all senses, the dream stayed with him and then he realized that if this is bothering him then it must be the same for many other people as well and thus it drove him to start making comfortable pillows by his own.

But his journey to an empire of net 20$ billion was not any dreamy. There were lots of ups and downs in the pursuit of the establishment of his business.

But before that, even when Mike was completing his education it was difficult for him to pay his school fee so he worked for it.

But soon he realized that he was only wasting his time in completing the education so he dropped out of the studies and found a regular job for him.

But then there he had an argument with the manager.
This gave him the push to start something of his own. So he started noticing 5 problems daily that he faced and could be solved by a business venture to start something of his own.

After getting expelled from the job, he tried his hands in many other fields, for instance, carpet cleaning and pig farming. None of this worked in his favor and soon all his savings were over.

So make his basic survival, he then joined as a bartender. But even that turned out to be a bad decision because before he knew, he became addicted to drugs.
His addiction turned so serious that his wife divorced him and he lost his last resort to happiness as well.

A series of tragedies followed him like a shadow but still, he couldn’t get rid of his addiction.

It took him 10 months to bring his life back on track. It was in 2009 he had his last drop of the drug in a party. He decided to give up on drugs and regained focus on business.

And then he came out with this idea to manufacture good pillows.

In 2011 a newspaper published about his company and a store offered him to open his own retail store.

Due to a shortage of money, he borrowed $15,000 to open his own store.

Starting with five employees the company now employs 500 workers.

The annual production of pillows on high demand is three crores and the annual turnover is $20 billion.

Apart from with the main business he later also started a charity service under the name Lindell foundation.

It raises voice for all sort of social issues. This helps those who pay their taxes and take care of all sorts of overhead. The donors can choose whom they want to help and connect with them accordingly. It also helped the people who suffered the heavy cyclone Harvey in August 2017.

So, all of it conspired together to make his dream come true, quite literally! Yes?
