Good morning! If you’ve tuned in recently for The Dani Johnson Show daily, you’ve heard about my travels and speaking engagements in different countries over the past two weeks.

It’s really a whole new world over there and a whole new experience for me. I spoke at a global entrepreneur workshop and met so many great people in Russia. And let me tell you, it was amazing to see the young people and the spark and drive in their eyes. In Latvia I spoke 3 or 4 times and over 1,000 people showed up in just a few days. Among them was a former Miss World, who was so blown away she is excited to join us at First Steps To Success in Baltimore next month! After that I traveled to Helsinki, Finland to speak at the Haaga-Helia university.

One man, John Cozzi volunteered to help at the event and later shared his experience, “HAAGA-HELIA’s Haaga campus got a taste of good ole’ fashioned U.S. style stardust last week when inspirational speaker and life coach Dani Johnson came to town to host the first Scandinavian version of her Millionaire’s Bootcamp seminars. When the call went out to blogging students asking for volunteers to cover the event and attend a press conference prior to the main gig, I readily put myself forward as I was intrigued to meet the woman behind the multimedia empire. From books to the aforementioned seminars, radio shows to TV, Dani Johnson has penetrated mainstream culture in America and across the world by delivering her brand of straight talking, affable advice on trending issues such as debt management, social consciousness and family values. Does she live up to her public image?” (You can read the full article here)

Considering my background, I never would’ve imagined I would be where I am now. I never would’ve thought I’d have the opportunity to speak internationally!

Growing up I was always told I was worthless, ugly and wasn’t going to amount to anything. Even when I first started in business, my plan was not to be hugely successful. I just knew that even if I failed I would still be in a better spot than where I started out.

Now I am honored to spend my life helping to change lives. A lot of people don’t know this, but when I put on an event or am called upon to speak at an event, I volunteer that time. Any profits generated from those events go to charity or to paying the people within our company. When I hear reactions like John’s, see the people of Russia crying and being inspired, I am faced full-on with the WHY I do what I do. This chance, this community that you are all a part of is my payment, 100%.

We’re now just a little less than a month away from our next live event and I’m on the edge of my seat. In Baltimore, we’re so lucky to have one of the biggest venues we’ve ever booked. A lot of times an event gets so full it has to go into an overflow room, which excites me because so many people want to be a part of it. But this gives us a chance to all be together.

I sincerely hope to see you in Baltimore! If you haven’t been to an event yet or haven’t been in awhile this is going to be one you don’t want to miss out! It’s going to be huge.

If you haven’t been joining me daily for The Dani Johnson Show, change your lunch plans! We’ll be continuing the conversation today at 12 pm ET/11 am CT.


In great faith,
