A 25-year-old has claimed delusions brought her happiness – and a big payday.
Romanee Virgara, from Adelaide, Australia, left her job as Logistics Manager in February 2023 to become a Business Coach and Socialite.
Virgara told SWNS, the British news service, that she always knew she was going to be an entrepreneur and socialite – and that delusional thinking was the only way to succeed.
“Most of all, I wanted to inspire other women to not settle for what they want,” she said.
After pursuing a business degree with around $6,000 in savings, she turned to social media to grow her fan base, SWNS reported.
She said “Delulu,” or delusions, made her rich after she started considering content creation as her 9-to-5 job.
“I acted like I was talking to thousands of people,” she told SWNS.
Virgara started showing her followers how side hustles could make money — and invited them to book one-on-one business coaching sessions with her, too.
According to one of her TikTok videos, Virgara uses social media to make money from brand deals, sponsored content, and more.
In just eight months, the founder made over $57,000, she said — and set her sights on becoming a seven-figure business owner.
Virgara said one of her ways of using delusions to achieve success is by simply believing she is already a successful business owner.
“I’ve been doing things like I’m already that person,” she told SWNS.
One of those things was test driving her dream car, a Ford Ranger, when she had just over $500 in her bank account.
Just six months later, Virgara posted bail on the car.
“I have a passion for inspiring people,” she said. “I always knew I had a lot to give to the world.”
Virgara said she not only experienced the financial gain, but also a self-transformation — she now feels proud and confident in herself.
“Allow yourself to dream and make yourself comfortable owning it,” she said.
Her other tips for success include budgeting your money, “talking things up,” and dreaming big.
Virgara has over 20,000 followers on TikTok.
