A 25-year-old claimed illusion was what brought her happiness — and a big payday.
Romani Vergara from Adelaide, Australia, left her job as a logistics manager in February 2023 to become a business coach and public figure.
Vergara told British news service SWNS that she always knew she would become a business owner and public figure – and that illusion was the only way to succeed.
“I wanted to inspire other women, especially, not to have to settle down and go for what they want,” she said.
After getting a business internship using about $6,000 in savings, she turned to social media to increase her following, SWNS reported.
She said being “delusional” was what made her rich after she started treating content creation as her 9-to-5 job.
“It appeared as if I was talking to thousands of people,” she told SWNS.
Vergara began teaching her followers how to make money with side activities — and invited them to book one-on-one coaching sessions with her, too.
Things like brand deals, sponsored content and more is how Virgara makes money with social media, according to one of her TikTok videos.
In just eight months, she said, the creator has made more than $57,000, and has set her sights on becoming a seven-figure employer.
Vergara said one of the ways she used the illusion of success was simply by believing she was a successful business owner.
“I was doing things as if I were really that person,” she told SWNS.
One of those things was test driving her dream car, the Ford Ranger, when she had just over $500 in her bank account.
Just six months later, Vergara made a deposit on the car.
“I have a passion for making people feel inspired,” she said. “I always knew I had a lot to offer the world.”
More than just financial gains, Vergara said she has witnessed a self-transformation, saying she is proud and confident in herself now.
“Allow yourself to dream and feel comfortable owning it,” she said.
Some of her other tips for achieving success include budgeting your money, “talking things” into existence, and dreaming big.
Virgara has more than 20,000 followers on TikTok.
