Girl Talk with J.Belle & Lil D

Updated: Nov 28, 2020

Would you go homeless just to build your dreams into reality?

I had been curious about 979thebeat radio personality and womenonair brand ambassador, Lil D, after seeing her smiling face pop up on my IG feed!


Then after watching her interview on Girl Talk with J.Belle I really wanted to learn more about about her story, so I purchased her book: Route 2: My Choice to Struggle to Succeed


Wow! What an incredible journey of how Lil D took a bet on herself! From homelessness to middays in Dallas, building a brand, an online store, a book, and helping good girls become great women! A truly inspiring story! Highly recommend the read!

"I do what I need to do, because I love doing it" - Lil D
