“The most visual way to picture your comfort zone is a square – and you’re in it.”

Welcome to this week’s inspiring episode of True Grit and Grace featuring our special guest, Billy Dha Kidd. BIlly is a rapper, coach, speaker, author and host of the podcast, Million Dollar Hustle.

Billy’s early life was anything but comfortable.  Growing up in El Salvador, he was used to no running water and no electricity. He likes to say that he didn’t start at zero but started at negative one-hundred. Billy’s family immigrated to the United States when he was 10 years old, moving first to California and then later to Nebraska.

As a teenager, Billy began rapping as a way for him to express himself but found he loved the craft. Rapping allowed Billy to fill his time with something positive, instead of taking the wrong path many of his peers were on. Music taught him sales skills, business skills, how taxes work, and most importantly, how to make money.  Billy’s story is definitely a movie about the “American Dream.”  From owning real estate, companies, a podcast host, becoming a published author and working with artists like Kevin Gates, Baby Bash, SPM, MC Magic, Chalie Boy, Grammy winners AKWID, DJ Kane of the Kumbia Kings and more, Billy has made a mark and his mark will only get bigger.

In this episode, we’re diving into Billy’s, someone who’s all-in on personal growth and self-improvement. He’s got a unique take on the ups and downs of this journey, and it’s all about keeping it real and staying true to yourself.

According to Billy, connecting with the right people at the right time can do wonders for personal growth. He’s big on being genuine and not faking it. He’s also a fan of staying humble and finding the funny side of life – two things he sees as key to staying happy while you’re at it.

Tune in to hear Amberly Lago and Billy Dha Kidd dive into these ideas and more. If you’re into practical advice on personal growth and the importance of being authentic, this one’s for you.
