“From the beginning, I knew I wanted to make an impact, and my path allowed me to do so,” said Lindberg. “I wanted to create opportunities, grow businesses and help talented people reach their ultimate potential.”
During his career, Lindberg has acquired and transformed more than 100 companies that were either failing or underperforming and are now worth billions of dollars. He’s also employed more than 7,500 people.
Lindberg is proud of the impact he’s made on business. But his biggest pride is being a father to his children. They are his biggest priority.
“Being a dad is the greatest feeling in the world,” said Lindberg. “Seeing them grow up, take their first steps and continue to thrive, gives me joy, hope and purpose.”
With great successes, Lindberg also has experienced challenges throughout his career. However, he has not allowed struggles or disappointments to keep moving forward.
His experiences as a leader and recent challenges have inspired him to empower people to achieve optimal success. That’s why he has authored two books: Failing Early & Failing Often: How to Turn Your Adversity into Advantage published in 2020 and 633 Days Inside: Lessons on Life and Leadership published in 2022.
Through his books, his mission is to help people unlock their greatness by focusing on wellness, longevity and leadership. Lindberg’s recent book 633 Days Inside documents his challenges and takes readers on his journey to transforming his mind and body through fasting, cold exposure, exercise, nutrition and other regimens. Lindberg wants to offer those programs to others.
“My mission in life is to help people achieve their dreams,” said Lindberg. “You can’t unlock your greatness in life if you don’t have a healthy body and mind. I’ve lived it and experienced it and have transformed because of it. Now I’m ready to share my secrets with other people.”
Lindberg continues to give back through his philanthropic work. He’s currently working with Interrogating Justice, a non-profit organization which provide access to resources and opportunities for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people, including their loved ones.
Lindberg says his goal is to support the organization and provide ongoing resources for this community, giving them the necessary tools to overcome struggles and reach their ultimate potential.
“I want to do everything I can to give them a second chance at life,” Lindberg said. “I know what they’re going through and my goal is to give them access to information, resources and opportunities to succeed.”
