Everyone loves a redemption story, but as we know, it is not always easy. Far from it, it is not easy for anyone to conquer themselves and break through their own shackles. Dashnay Johnson has done just that, overcoming obstacles that may have broken countless others. Now, she owns a couple of highly successful and reputable brands, blazing her own trail in the finance industry.
Dashnay Michell Johnson was born in Jersey City, New Jersey. The second of three sisters and a younger brother. She was raised by her mother and stepfather who taught her at an early age that the true measure of success is not found in the position one holds in life, but by the obstacles that they have overcome. Dashnay raised lots of questions in her teenage years as despite her upbringing, she was constantly found in one type of trouble or the other. By age 14, she was already a runaway teen and had cases of arrests, drugs, sex, and rape. Fast forward to age 17, when she was a mother and a battered young woman. By the time she turned 20, she was a mother of 3 boys and locked in an abusive relationship with the father of her children. With very little money and no support, the future stretched bleakly and endlessly for her and her boys. As you may expect, life came at her hard, but she had determination instilled in the very core of her character. This led her to discover a way that offered so much more than the reality she was living in.
“Sometimes we learn what we’re made of, only when things go wrong; when some adversity or setback changes the trajectory of our existence. When we are forced to be the change we want to see in the world.” Dashnay Johnson said.
Up until a certain point, she was simply a mother of five boys. She was, as one would say, a statistic. However, she discovered her power in her search for redemption. Dashnay turned her life around. Now, she is a 7-figure earner and the owner of VIP Credit Repair, the owner of VIP Credit Repair Academy, and the co-owner of VIP Consulting Agency LLC.
Dashnay has learned how to thrive through adversity, leading by the example of her own life, and what she has achieved is remarkable. Many may not know, but she is a huge philanthropist who has donated thousands of dollars to her community. She has used her platform and expertise to provide opportunities to others: assisting single moms and children with securing housing, purchasing school supplies, holiday gifts, groceries for those in need. She is paying it forward continuously out of love and an understanding of what it means to struggle. She is living proof that we can all do the impossible just by starting, not seeing obstacles as failures but instead, seeking challenges to grow.
Dashnay Johnson is an example of perseverance, a woman known for doing the impossible. She always puts her family first and teaches her children the very same valuable lesson of overcoming through life’s experiences.
