Durant knows what it feels like to be trapped career-wise. She said she escaped the drama of an unfulfilling corporate job and happily launched her own company and brand; The Be Brilliant Movement. The platform capitalizes on her leadership, speaking, and branding talents and helps her assist others who want to, “escape.”
“I use to tie my value to my corporate job. The higher I climbed the ladder of success, the better I felt about myself — until I was let go,” said Durant.
