Hey! I’m Delayne
& I might be the girl on your newsfeed that changes your life
I want to share my story with you to show you that it doesn’t matter where you came from. It doesn’t matter what your past looks like. It doesn’t matter if you never had anyone in your corner telling you that YOU CAN dream bigger and have an abundant life.
My life lines passed away shortly after I turned 16 years old, my dad and my older sister. Two separate, tragic accidents. Turned my world completely upside down. I went from being the perfect honor student who did ALL the extra curriculums and every teacher loved to dropping out of high school to finish with homeschool, moving out of my moms house, and spiraling. I then did things completely out of order, starting at age 16. I was a junior in high school when I found out I was going to be a mother. I was a waitress around my school schedule and I physically couldn't take on another job. I had no time! So I applied for government assistance and I remember thinking, this is just how life is supposed to be when you're young, dumb, and irresponsible. We would always struggle.
There came a point where my then boyfriend and I were desperate. We went from "this is how life is supposed to be" to "THERE HAS TO BE MORE TO LIFE THAN THIS." He was a car salesman on salary pay, his hours were overly abused and he was underpaid for the amount of time he was putting into his position. Like only 1,500 a month! Our infant son didn't know his own daddy because he worked and he worked and he worked!
I started working at a credit union, at a little over minimum wage, only to get unexpectedly laid off months later.
I tried couponing, selling clothes, selling things I made, but nothing helped to make ends meet.
We worked and worked and worked! But we couldn’t even pay our bills! We went several nights without lights, countless days without water or gas, 3 vehicle repossessions, and we were constantly begging and bartering with our bill companies to let us keep our utilities on.
That's when God so loudly placed this opportunity in my path. I had no idea what it was or if I could really do it. I was so nervous at first, but I was already on social media!
When I was approached with it, I immediately shut her down with “you don't want me."
I had a crappy social media platform, I was shy, I had no time, no money, I lived in a small town, and I was just so scared!
BUT something in my stomach told me this could be different.
So I decided to join a business that was centered around social media- a way to make extra income online. 𝐼𝑡 𝑊𝑜𝑟𝑘𝑠 𝐺𝑙𝑜𝑏𝑎𝑙.
I started working this business completely on social media! Soon I was paying for diapers with this, then gas, then groceries, then i started even paying bills and paying off our debts!! That sounds crazy right?
I was able to fulfill the calling God put on my heart.
I have now been with the business for almost 4 years! We have been able to serve others, bring more people to Jesus, make life long friendships, have time to go on missions trips, build savings accounts, tithe to our church, start our debt free journey, and live so abundantly because we gave it all back to God when we had nothing.
This business has given me so many career opportunities, it has helped fund my husbands business, and it has completely changed our lives!
I get to be a yes mom! I get to say yes to the expensive pair(s) of shoes my five year old HAS to have because ALL his friends have them! I get to say yes to dance classes for my two year old daughter! I get to say yes to activities, big birthday parties, family vacations, and so much more!
So I have to ask you, friend, are you ready for more?
