Secret Millionaire: on ABC is a new reality series, where six of America’s most successful business people will spend a week in the country’s poorest areas, ending their stay by giving members of the community hundreds of thousands of dollars of their own money. In the series premiere, America met Dani Johnson. Keeping reading her interview from ABC to find out how she became a millionaire and what she learned about herself.How did you become a Millionaire?
Built two companies at the same time: manufactured and developed a nutritional product line and a training and development seminar company that helps people make more money with less stress and living the life they want NOW!
Is there anything that would surprise viewers to learn about you?
We believe that money has a much bigger purpose than STUFF! I cook every night for my family and it’s all from scratch. We live very simple and modest lives. Nothing extravagant because of two motivations. 1.) We do not want spoiled rotten kids who don’t know how to live in the real world. 2.) We give MORE every month than what we live on and feed, clothe, shelter or educate over 4,000 orphans, widows and kids victimized by sex trade. This has been our life for many years and will continue to be for our family for generations to come. We choose to live by example for our family and our clients instead of living a life without integrity.
Why did you want to be a part of the show?
We did NOT want to be a part of it AT all. In fact we begged for the door to be slammed shut! We have done ALL of our giving in SECRET. We’d rather not get the recognition from those who receive from us (or anyone else for that matter). This way the ‘receiver’ can only tanks the ONE who really answered their need which is not a human. When it became blatantly obvious that our passion for mobilizing our nation to reach out and help those in ‘real’ need could be accomplished on a much larger scale, we cautiously made the sacrifice of privacy in hope that others would use what they’ve got, hugs, time, service, or money, to help others who are in need.
Was there anything you were hoping to learn about yourself?
I didn’t really know what to expect as far as that goes however, after making that decision to do this I was super excited about the chance to just serve people whether in our home or in an orphanage. My heart hurts for the hurting. Because I have been there too many times. So I was about the people of like mindedness that I would get the chance to work with. I thought it was gonna be a blast.
