    Hello Dani!
    I just got through watching “Secret Millionaire”. What a WONDERFUL person with a HUGE HEART!!! I could feel your pain and your love with every person you met, worked with, shared with your time, and blessed with your good fortune. I like many others in this world could use money to pay off my bills, buy myself my dream vehicle…a RX330 Lexus, or just to help make ends meet, but I’m NOT here for myself. I just have one request…PLEASE help the ANIMALS. Everyday thousands of dogs and cats are put to sleep just because they don’t have someone to take and love them. From time to time my heart breaks when I hear of animals of all kinds that are neglected, tortured, beaten, burned, starved, made to live out in the cold, or killed for no reason. As good as people are in this world like yourself, they can be that bad. I love what you do and the heart and compassion you have. I guess I would like to ask one more favor of you. If you can use your good fortune and connections to help change the legislation to make much tougher rules and laws where animals are concerned…especially when people do bad things to animals out of meanness. I’ve always wanted to help animals and will be volunteering shortly but I lost 5 dogs within the last 2 years that were my life or very close to my heart and it’s taken me until now to be able to say I can be around a lot of dogs (which are my passion) to help them without breaking down. I want to say thank you for who you are and what you do!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    Oh Dani, by the way, I don’t work so if you need help, I would love to help in your causes.

  5. Rena Raulston March 6, 2011

  6. Brandi March 6, 2011

    Hi dani,
    I just watched you on the secret millianare. What a touhing show . I Was so happy to see that you made such a diffrence in those foundations. I could see the hope in those peoples eyes as you just gave them such a warming gift of apprication for all they do . I am glad to see there are people like you that still exist in the cold world . Not very many people whould sare their wealth in such a positive way as you just did . We have a non-profit organization that allows hadicapped and mentally ill kids to come and hunt here in ohio with their familys . If you get the time to read about us maybe you could pass the word around for our foundation so more people would check us out . The website is I appricate you taking the time to read this and we need more people in the world to start sharing and caring with organizations that help out our communities. Thanks again Dani and god bless you .

  7. Cathleen kloczkowski March 7, 2011

    My husband completely loved the show last night and I enjoyed your talk on Klove. We would love to help put smiles on peoples faces. I look forward to the movies May your family be blessed

  8. Brenda E. March 7, 2011

    I watched Secret Millionaire last night and I was in tears. Dani is a phenomenal woman. She is selfless and inspiring to others. For those of us who feel like we should be doing more or that something is missing in our lives, it is the giving of ourselves to others through volunteering. It costs us nothing, but the rewards are limitless. I haven’t volunteered in over 20 years, my children do and I will be joining them. Thanks Dani and God bless you and your family.

  9. Melin March 7, 2011

    I have been looking forward to this show ever since they started announcing it. I cried for the entire hour. I saw Dani living my dream. My dream of being a Secret Millionaire. I want the joy of meeting and serving others as she did. Dani please help be a Secret Millionaire….

  10. Sue B March 7, 2011

    Again Dani you got my heart – I shared with many to watch the program – young and old! We can make a difference – one person at a time! I’ve been volunteering with Dress A Girl Around the World … making dresses out of PILLOW CASES for little girls around the world. These dresses not only make them feel loved and cared for BUT more importantly they are helping protect them from potential sexual abuse. Little girls with torn or tattered clothing in 3rd world countries will be abused … it sends a message she isn’t being cared for .. we can stop it with a simple pillow case (or sheet or any material the size of a pillow case … from little to king size) check out It started in Oct 09 and in 1st year, ladies around the country made & delivered 10,116 dresses to 27 countries! Goal this year is 50,000 … get a little group together and have a ‘sew fest’ … your heart will be captured!

  11. Margaret Pepper March 7, 2011

    My husband & I moved to Knoxville in 2003 from Michigan. Your appearance on Secret Millionaire inspired us. I have had the privilege of volunteering at the Western Heights Baptist Center. Our Church has partnered with them in feeding the hungry in Western Heights and it has been such a blessing. I am looking forward to the webinar and receiving your new book.

  12. Vicki Sensat March 7, 2011

    I am a retired Paramedic. I have been searching for another meaningful path for a while now. I would love to help you with your causes. No, I’m not a millionaire. I am more of a thousandaire. LOL

  13. Andrew March 7, 2011

    I’m excited about this webinar.

  14. Dennis March 7, 2011

    I’m still having trouble ordering the book

  15. Nanette Smith March 7, 2011

    My name is Nanette Smith. And; I have been receiving E-mails; from Dani, for several years. Although, I regretibilly (not sure; how, you spell this word), did not think; to check in to Danl’s E-mails, until just recently. I have, heard of her; though, for many many years. I have an issue, of a magazine of Home Business Connection, which; she is in. And; I watched her; last night, on the “Secret Millionaire” show, and could not BELIEVE; what a woman, she really is. She learned about, how the poverty stricken people, have to live and do live. And; we are; almost, to that point. I never; wanted to be, like this. My parents; are RICH. But; they made me live, like someone, who barely can make it through, there own life. I cannot get a job. No one; will hire me. I completed school; which, I wonder; if, that was even, a good idea. Because, we know; many many people, who did not, finish school; who now have good jobs. And; these people, also; have records. But; they are working. We do have some, HANDICAPS, DISABILITIES and BIRTH DEFECTS. But; we didn’t make it; this far, in life; because, we did not know how. I basically, left home; when, I was still, in the eleventh grade. So; I could get to a job, I did have, back then. But; to work there; you had to be, on medications. and go to a MENTAL HEALTH CENTER. But; now, I am overqualified. I scored a 98% out of 100; on an COGNITIVE TESTING. But; they have, always; labeled me, as not knowing, anything. I proved them wrong. I have been labeled as BLIND. I am, anything; but. Or, I could not type this message. I have been told; I know, nothing about COMPUTERS: but, yet, I am on one; every single day. I have taken COMPUTER CLASSES and COURSES.
    I would like to work. But; my husband, will not; let me do, what I want to do. He will not, let me; go to school; either. We have been married; almost 24 years. We have a daughter; who is almost 22!!! She was not born with; any of our issues. They made us, take her to a school; for kids, with DOWN SYNDROME or CEREBRAL PALSY. She (as well as us); do not, have any of those things, either. It is unreal, what we have had to go through, in our lives. My husbands, health; is not too good, these days. We have been, misjudged; by so many people.
    I would love to have a different life; than, I have had to live, these 43 years. And; my husband is 56!!!! If, we can change our lives, that would be, a miracle.

    • Lydia March 7, 2011

      Nannette thanks for sharing you story. Connecting with Dani is certainly a great start.

    • Chandra March 8, 2011

      Oh Nanette …that is a lot to overcome but i know that you can. God will help you if you ask Him and there is a ton of free stuff on this website to help you find the right mindset and faith to overcome…i’ve seen it time and time again – you obviously still have a lot of fight and dreams and vision left in you. Don’t give up. Prayers for you and your family – God can totally change peoples hearts on things as well 😉

  16. Cecilia Smith March 7, 2011

    I like it.

  17. Ha Bui March 7, 2011


    I saw you and immediately recognized you on The Secret Millionaire show. Very touching and inspiring! You are a hero and keep doing what you are doing.

    God Bless!

    Ha Bui

  18. PA HAYES March 7, 2011

    Dani I saw the show last night and I was truly touched by your compassion for others. The fact you understand what it means to have nothing and end up with true blessings from GOD. I pray that you continue to give GOD all the praise and glory as he is SO WORTHY. Use your gifts and talent to always please GOD FIRST and you will always succeed in life.
    Also be sure to rejoice in bad times as JESUS has overcome them all.
    God bless

  21. Anne March 7, 2011

    Thank you for the inspiration and information you provide so uniquely and freely! You have inspired us to give freely to those in need! We believe that in giving, we receive so much more. So … I want to increase my business incredibly in the next 4 months! Thanks for the passionate leadership and information you are giving.

  22. Logan Boniface March 7, 2011

    Hi, Dani, I am 12. I asked my mom if I could say hi to you. She said yes. I am 12 and I like how you love Jesus. I want to get on the phone but we have cut back our long distance. I pray every day that my mom and I can come learn from you. You encourage my mom and I everyday and I want to say thank you. I know in my heart we will see you and say thank you. Pray for my mommy and I. I like how you teach and you keep on saying you talk fast but we like it!!! lol!!! It makes us happy when we hear you talking. We listen to you at least two hours a day. I thank God for my mom. She tells me God is taking us to the top!!!


    • Chandra March 8, 2011

      This post makes me very happy :) Go Logan and Mom!

      • Doldena March 10, 2011

        Me too….

  23. Jordy March 7, 2011

    I just had an opportunity to watch the Secret Millionaire. WOW, I wept through the entire show. I was able to catch some of the after glow last night too. I heard you give God the glory for you being on the premier. Thanks for loving the Lord with all your heart.

  24. patti March 7, 2011

    cant get on webinar either and am also having trouble ordering book?

  25. Shirley Farrington March 8, 2011

    I can’t wait to get these videos.

  26. Angela March 8, 2011

    Hi Dani,
    I watched the show last night. You are experiencing exactly what I have always said I wanted to do. I would also like to stand on the courthouse steps and purchase homes back for people that have lost their home.
    Keep doing what you do and God will keep blessing you!!!!

  27. Harriet Anthony March 8, 2011

    I cried through the whole program,That was so touching. Whenever I recieve my disability that I have been yearning for so long, I’m gonna go help out some family and friends who could really use my help,the past 3yrs. have been draining for me cause nobody helped me through my hard times, I put it in “GODS” hands,I have never been so humiliated,betrayed,disrespected in all my life. I’m the best friend anybody could have. My heart goes out to you for the love you have shared with others and the difference you made in their lives. God put me here to help others even though they have taken advantage of my kindness.I have “NO MONEY”,but I do what I can to help when somebody is hungry.I will never stop giving,it’s been in my heart too long. God knows my heart,I will prail! I Love You for Kind Heart, Don’t ever STOP!

  28. sandra March 8, 2011

    Eager to learn!

  29. MPmomof3 March 8, 2011

    Thank you so much, Dani. You have confirmed some things that God has been teaching me in the past couple of years. Keep up the good work! :)

  30. Talea Hanson March 8, 2011

    Wow Dani you are so insiring! No more excuses! You are truely an Angel!

  31. Melissa March 8, 2011

    Obviously you only like comments from people who buy into your money making schemes that has served you well for so many years. I see comments that you didn’t like were deleted. You are asking for money to get paid for something that they can get free of charge. Yes, you are such a great person.

    • Hans March 8, 2011

      Melissa, which comments specifically are you referring to that were deleted? And where specifically are we “asking for money to get paid for something that they can get free of charge”?

      We generally don’t delete comments from the site at all. The only exception is if a page is removed from the site for maintenance reasons or if the comment is just outright distasteful, spam or against our site terms.

  32. Charles Miller March 8, 2011

    I am so looking forward to hearing what Dani is sharing!

  33. Charles Miller March 8, 2011


  34. Liz Sanchez March 9, 2011

    Thank you Dani for teaching us something that we are not going to find on the internet for free! You are among the few that when life handed you lemons, although bitter-sweet, you found many ways to turn those lemons into gold. What you have to teach us is priceless, and not to be missed. I have personally wasted a lot of $$$ throughout the years on so-called-guru/programs. Looking for the right IM/affiliate programs, what a waste!

    If I had listened to an aquaintance years back when he told me about you, my life would have been different today, I just though, yeah another entrepreneur, and I never bothered to check your site. But you know what, everything happens for a reason, I found you again on Sunday by mistake, it was ment to be. My favorite quote is “Quitting is Not an Option” It’s never to late, I am not only looking forward to listening to everything you have to say, but also putting what I can to use.

    I just hope they fix the site so that we don’t get cut off from the missed conferences/videos, etc.. You are blessed, and so are we, for having you in our lives.

    Gracias Dani

  35. Liz Sanchez March 9, 2011

    By the way, this may be helpful for anyone that is having problems placing your pre-order, like I did, for Dani’s free book “First Steps to Wealth” I just called their customer service at 1 866 760 8255, I explained my situation and placed my order over the phone. Simple!

    Have a great tomorrow.

  36. Paula March 9, 2011

    Just finished listening to your Hidden Money . you are a very outstanding person and tells it like it is. I like that. You are a rare person.
    You hit home on alot of points. I am in business for myself, but work retail. I come from a retail family and know how it was to have to figure out how to make things work. I saw my parents work very hard to make sure I would be the strong person after they were gone. I miss them. I think that I trailed off from their words of wisdom a bit. I give it my best shot.
    I needed that shot of go for it again, guess what you did it. I have supportive friends and family ,but sometimes it takes someone on the outside to give that kick , that close friends might not want to give.
    By the way, I am in Knoxville. I knew exactly where you were. I can tell you that since the airing that The Joy of Music and Special Spaces have had their phones ringing and out pouring of wanting to help from all over. Helen and Ellen were recently in the hospital with the flu. they are recoving well, but Ellen had to go back in for something but should be coming home this week. Wanted to let you know.
    Thank you so much for visiting and finding these great organizations. They are apart of our heart and soul.

  37. Shelly Klay-Reapsummer March 9, 2011

    Thank you Dani I have so much hidden money in my kitchen.
    I am always amazed at how much I spend at the grocery store and then how much I toss at the end of the week. I am a single Mom and need to tighten up the wallet and plan meals. No excuses!

    As well I work for an Amazing Retail company, I am the Boutique Manager and want my entire team to listen to you. Conversion and the way it impacts our daily business and our paychecks. I will drive for results.

    I can’t wait to hear more!!!!

  38. Melissa March 9, 2011


    Please tell me of some contributions, not to family or friends but to other entities that were not tax deductible? I feel if you want to empower people to be the best that they can be, the information should be free. However, I understand this is strictly a for profit business but $99 for most of your materials is a lot to make from thousands of people. You all are similiar to Joel Olsteen and his greedy wife. Using the name of God to further your wealth. People us the name of God when their name is no good.

    • Liz March 10, 2011

      If one wants to read something that will empower them to be the best that they can be, then one should read the book of Proverbs, and it’s FREE! I am not a religious person, but I do believe that there is a God of my understanding, and if that works for me and others, so be it. It seems that some people listen open-mindedly, in one ear and out the other…what is so great in what Dani, Hans and so many others are doing, is that they have learned that in the giving is the receiving. Life may be free, but living it, is not! It’s wonderful to see so much compassion in another human being, toward others, something that is missing from many, especially in a world that is so full of hate and bitterness. And no, I am not putting Dani on a pedestal, that’s already reserved. But, whatever I can learn and implement it to better my life and help me get out from under, it’s my gain and not my loss!! That’s what Good about Great Teachers that Care about Others. Don’t ever give up, it’s in your hands, you just can’t see it…for now.

    • Wilma Fisher May 1, 2011

      Oh Melissa, I pray God doesn’t punish you for your ugly words & comments.
      These are good God fearing people who serve God & people. I shutter when I think about your harsh words and you having to answer to God for uttering them. May the Lord have mercy on your soul,

  39. Doldena March 9, 2011

    LOL I had to laugh about the heater stuff… we only have 4 heaters in our whole house and our house it 1400 square feet, but I tell you it greats really really cold in it when the temp is -20 …

    I complain all the time about it because it’s so cold in our house until we get the wood stove going .. when it’s below -20 I turn up the heat when we are not home because I don’t want the water pipes to freeze but then I start to freak out when the bill gets above 150$ a month… unfortunately there are a few months the coldest months of the year it’s between 150-180 a month and I can’t do anything about it.. we have to have shoes on all winter long because the floors are so cold it makes your body ach… :-( I hate winter… UGH

    What i am struggling with is the food budget .. that’s where I struggle.. sometimes it’s over 600 a month veggies and fruit is what kills us here it’s so expensive to get any of that especially during the winter months here I. One head of lettuce is sometimes as much as $4.00 and they are small :-( it’s so sad….. and not to mention 4 pieces of chicken is around $10 so I know you say not to buy bulk but I do buy that bulk I can get enough fresh chicken breast to do us over 9 months for about $150 so I freeze it it’s much cheaper that way.. and we do use it all… 

    anyway LOVE YOU DANI…. Thanks again for doing these Monday Night Calls.

    xoxo to you and your family…

    • Melanie May 1, 2011

      I would like to ask which part of the country your in?

      I used to live in a house of relative size with wood floors and it was cold weather as well, so I can relate.
      You may be better off to do a few things. I realize they are semi expensive and will take some saving $ but I also have another possible solution also.
      You can get carpets with 1″ padding under to help insulate the floors. You could also look into heated flooring. The heated flooring would also help to keep the rooms warmer.
      Sometimes Carpet Companies will rip out carpet that is still in great shape simply because the customer wanted something new. Sometimes they are getting rid of old stock and it didn’t sale. They throw it away! Check with some flooring stores AND Installers that subcontract for them. Also, explain your situation and they might help you! It may not be totally free but they have the power to discount it all substantially!
      I know this because I used to work with several companies that do flooring. I know what average mark up is also.

      Secondly, sounds like your home might need new insulation? Go to your community center and see if they offer any weatherization help. Some areas do and for free. They will re-insulate, re-caulk and do many other things that help your drafts and heating/cooling costs.

      As far as food costs, 4 things for starters: you might be better to order some of that online from providers for cheaper. You can join a co-op where several families go in together with the grocery list, costs and buy in bulk then separate it.
      If your community has a community garden go work in it for the spring- fall months. You plant it, weed it, pick it, etc.. Here, they take leftovers or excess and give it to the food pantries to be given away. The thing you need to remember is that it is for a community not just yourself.
      Learn to can or freeze these goods. That is a great $ saver also and really doesn’t take too much.

      Hope this helps!

  40. Jason Popowniak March 9, 2011

    Would love to join you in Texas, but I am not allowed in the U.S., so can you let me know if you will ever come to Canada, if not I will keep up with your books and webcasts, that is my only other options. Thank you for the web call it was great, look forward to working with you guys, cheers.

  41. Tom Dixon March 11, 2011

    This is very motivational. My only disappointment was in Dani saying she’s only going to age 96. Come on Dani, whats 4 more years?

  42. Bonita Fecteau March 13, 2011

    My name is Bonnie. I wanted to let you no that I was in tears when I watched Dani on Secret Millionaire. I have watched my younger sister Diane give to everyone all of her life. She is an identical twin. Her twin died at age twenty eight. Diane has always given money,time, love and now she’s sick and no one will lift a finger to help her. She has had the same job for thirty-eight years,and has been a good person. No one knows what it is like to give all your life more than my sister, Diane. I wish I could help her.

  43. Susan Fleming March 28, 2011

    Please have him say that phrase again about interviewing the company. !

  44. Susan Fleming March 28, 2011

    I hope this is not too many comments but I just read your other comments. Dani, I appreciate your words. I appreciate your faith in our Lord. I appreciate your determination. I share your vision… I have done it on a much smaller scale but I would LOVE to enlarge it as you have. I have worked with the homeless. I lived on the cold concrete streets as a teenager. I will work with who will listen and learn and give. One person, he was on the streets, moved into a shelter and now is in a one bedroom apartment. I taught him how to Mystery Shop. The library is free to use computers, James was able to schedule each shop online, he can take the city bus to the location to do the shop and then return to the library to enter the shop and get paid through PayPal connected to a checking account or savings account. I have taught adults how to read at the Martin Luther King Library at San Jose State University downtown San Jose. I have felt stupid before and know that each and every one of us has a strength or the ability to learn and I am grateful to God for the ability I have to work. You seem to have it figured out much better than I, but I continue to grow. Thank you for your time and words.

  45. Colleen March 29, 2011

    Dani and Hans, you are wonderful and have motivated me more than you can know. I have no money, but am going to follow your direction. I want to know what business I can do to make money. Someone please give me a legitimate business or idea I can start. I know I can do it and I am very good at talking to people and helping others. I often helped others so much, I gave away everything I had. Please help, and thank you so much for all you do for me!!!

  46. Teresa April 6, 2011

    I caught what you’re saying, Dani!!

  47. Alexandra Feurdean May 23, 2011

    How can I get the 90 day plan
