About the Author

Schindler, born in 1934, during the great depression, is the youngest of nine children. Placed in an orphanage at the age of three, he developed an exceptional way of seeing even the worst experiences in a positive light. After he finished the fifth grade, he was placed in a foster home, along with his brother Joe, where they were terribly mistreated. In spite of his unhappy childhood, he managed to maintain an extremely positive and cheerful outlook.

Mr. Schindler is a graduate of John Carroll University and the founder of Bandido’s Mexican restaurants, a small Midwestern chain. He has authored several books and his newspaper column, “Schindler Sez,” appears in a number of Indiana newspapers. He has been a guest speaker at the University of Notre Dame and has been quoted in “Bits & Pieces,” a national motivational publication.

Married, the father of seven children and an ever-growing number of grandchildren, he now resides in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
