Notes & Transcripts

The television program “Secret Millionaire” has introduced the world to a millionaire Dani Johnson who has an interesting story as well as wealth. Johnson’s name became a hot search topic after the first program aired. In an interview, she summarized her life into four major points. Johnson said she grew up on welfare, became pregnant at 17, was homeless by 21, and then became a millionaire by age 23. She said they she was offered a chance to appear on the program, she turned it down four times. She said in her mind giving to charities was something to be done in secret. She told a reporter she changed her mind after reading the Bible. She said she “came to the revelation that I was fighting God and that God was the one to open up the door and it was clear that he wanted this message to get out there.”

Johnson hid her identity and lived on a budget of $40 in a tough Knoxville Tennessee neighborhood for the show. She began working on her own personal gift giving with a group of 31 people during the Christmas season. After the show, Johnson put together a group of clients and challenged them to infiltrate a city, loving orphans who had been abandoned and abused. She said one of the reasons she wants to help people become successful is so they can annihilate their personal debt and then contribute to a failing society. Johnson added, “I just came back from India from an orphanage with 237 boys whose parents were martyred for Christ. We have never mobilized our clients to do it with us and so it has definitely expanded the vision that God gave me seven years ago, helping people succeed in business so that they could go and make a difference in other people’s lives.”
