MyPillow inventor and CEO Mike Lindell will speak during a Super Session at Proclaim 19, the NRB International Christian Media Convention that will be held March 26-29, 2019, in Anaheim, California.
“Mike Lindell has an inspiring story of how he came to succeed in life and in business, and will be sharing valuable insights with Convention attendees,” said Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, president & CEO of NRB. “If you want to learn how to market on radio and television, and how to manage the people in your ministry or business, Mike’s Super Session at Proclaim 19 is the place to be.”
After being fired from his job at a grocery store, Lindell pursued an entrepreneurial path by starting his own carpet cleaning company, which he expanded into a larger business. After that, he went on to run lunch wagons, nightclubs, and small town bars. In 2004, Lindell had a dream about a pillow, which prompted him to invest all his time and resources into developing the world’s most comfortable pillow.
As Lindell struggled to grow his burgeoning pillow enterprise, he also battled with drug addictions. But those addictions came to an end in January 2009 after he prayed and asked God to take away his desire for drugs, promising in return that he would do whatever He wanted him to do. Lindell has been sober ever since that day.
And since then, Lindell has seen amazing success. MyPillow is now a thriving near-billion dollar company that has 15 retail locations, has a workforce of 1,600, and has sold more than 40 million pillows worldwide. More importantly, Lindell made good on his promise to God, donating to several groups, including Teen Challenge, The Wounded Warriors, and the Salvation Army. He also formed The Lindell Foundation, which provides worldwide aid to the poor through a unique approach to loving and giving. In addition, Lindell co-founded with actor Stephen Baldwin LIGHTBEAMedia , which produces Christian-themed films.
Other speakers at Proclaim 19 include ministry leaders Greg Laurie, John MacArthur, Charles Stanley, Joni Eareckson Tada, Bobby Schuller, and Rick Warren; entertainment industry professionals DeVon Franklin, Alex Kendrick, and Kirk Cameron; radio talk show hosts Larry Elder and Dennis Prager; and many more.
The emcees of the Convention will be twin brothers, authors, and entrepreneurs David and Jason Benham.
Proclaim 19 will take place March 26-29, 2019, at the Anaheim Convention Center, while NRB’s award-winning Exposition – featuring around 200 exhibitors – will be open March 27-29. The annual Convention is the largest nationally and internationally recognized event dedicated solely to assisting those in the field of Christian communications. And next year, at Proclaim 19, NRB will celebrate its 75th anniversary year as an association.
