5:05 PM ET – Mike Lindell, inventor, creator and recovered addict, and author of the new book, What Are the Odds? From Crack Addict to CEO.
Mike Lindell, Inventor and CEO of MyPillow®, is celebrating 11 years of sobriety today with the release of his new memoir, What Are the Odds? From Crack Addict to CEO. The book brings full circle a promise that Lindell had been making for years to friends and fellow addicts that one day, he would help them and others struggling with addiction. What are the odds?
In his memoir, Lindell recalls a defining moment when he had been awake for 14 days straight. His drug dealers intervened and put out the word that no one was allowed to sell to Lindell.
“You’ve been telling us for years that this pillow thing is some kind of ‘platform,’ and that you’re gonna come back here and help us get out of this drug life,” Lindell recalled his dealer saying. “Well, we’re not gonna let you die on us. You’re going to bed. You ain’t got no choice.”
Lindell’s dealer snapped a photo of him at that moment, telling him to one day put it on the cover of his book. Readers will see that photo prominently displayed on the cover of What Are the Odds? From Crack Addict to CEO.
Lindell provides a raw, authentic account of his entrepreneurial journey and his battles with crack cocaine and gambling addictions, hardship and failure that he struggled with for decades in his new book, What Are the Odds? From Crack Addict to CEO. In the book’s prologue, readers are transported to Mexico as Lindell recounts getting caught up in a late-night cocaine sale gone awry during a vacation. He also shares how a $5 bet made in Las Vegas led to a gambling addiction that lasted for years. Woven throughout the book are themes of a “what are the odds” outlook, as well as hope, and an unwavering spirit to never give up.
“Addiction affects everyone, no matter how many forks you eat with,” Lindell said. “There are people everywhere struggling with all kinds of addictions.”
