First of all, my name is Dani Johnson, and I grew up in a home filled with drugs, violence, abuse that varies, rape, and poverty. Now, I am a multimillionaire; but before my success, “I was a fat cocktail waitress, with what seemed like no hope or future.” As a child, my step father would sexually, verbally, and physically abuse me. In addition, he would call me “fat, worthless,” and even “ugly.” At the age of 17, I got pregnant with my first child. On top of that embarrassment, I was judged by all in my community, including my church. Also, I was called very hurtful names. In the end, I was forced to give up my newborn daughter; it was not an easy decision to make in the least.
As a young adult, I went to self-help/improvement seminars, along with business seminars. Shortly after, I lost all of my money, and soon became homeless. I “moved” onto the beach, and became a beach bum. At one point, I tried to commit suicide by attempting to drown myself in the ocean. At that instant while I was drowning myself, I heard a voice telling me, “Dani! Get out of the water! Pick up your bed, and move!” My “bed” was a beach mat; because that is one of the very few possessions I had as a beach bum…
Next, I got a job as a salesperson; using my knowledge and information from the seminars I attended awhile back. In addition, I sold a lot of products and services, and earned my first million in about a month. After that, I blew my million as quickly as I got it. After selling more products and services, I earned my second million dollars. A short time later, I met a very beautiful man, and married him in two days. After two weeks or so, my money disappeared, along with my new husband. I soon realized my new husband had run off with my money. All of a sudden, it hit me; I had married a con-artist that left me a few dollars and cents in my name.
Next, I picked myself back up, and met another guy; Hans Johnson. We started working with one another, and earned money together. A while later, Hans and I were married, earning millions, making and selling products alongside each other. Soon after, I gave birth to mine and Hans’s first child together. After more products sold, and millions made, Hans and I decided to start self-help and business seminars to help people rise above and become successful.
Four more children later, Hans and I have a multimillion dollar income each year. Furthermore, we do not spoil our kids; we make all five of them earn their own money, and buy their own stuff. In addition, we do not have television or cellphones. We Johnsons do not ever have playtime on the computer; Hans and I only let our children on the computer if it is productive. Also, our kids have to buy their own cars and insurance. Hans and I are “grooming” our children for success.
Instantly, my vision from Dani’s eyes ended. In conclusion, Dani is a hero to me because she had nothing. Dani was told she was worthless, ugly, fat, stupid, and would never amount to anything. Now, Dani has proved everyone who did not believe in her wrong. Dani did amount to something; she is successful, and she is a multimillionaire. Furthermore, Dani is a successful mother. I love the way Dani “grooms” her children for success.
