Want to know what it’s like to intentionally veer off the corporate path and build your own business?

Jamie Rosen will share her entertaining journey of breaking free from the corporate rat race to venture out on her own to pursue her passions and build a business, and a life, that aligns with her values and goals.  

If you often find yourself daydreaming about the possibilities of starting your own business, then this session is for you!  Jamie will share key lessons learned and critical advice for anyone thinking about leaving their corporate job to pursue their own business.  She’ll also share her experience and insights on being one of the few women in the male dominated Seattle start up community.

Jamie Rosen has been a passionate member of the business community for over 15 years, working in a wide range of business roles in the aviation, professional sports, and career development sectors. She is passionate about making things better and solving meaningful problems, whether within large corporations, start-up environments, or within her local community.

After spending 10 years quickly moving up the ranks within The Boeing Company and working on a wide range of projects such as co-designing Boeing’s strategy to overtake Airbus, selling 777s to Pakistan International Airlines, overhauling Boeing’s employee recruitment and development programs, and leading a complete rebrand of Boeing’s training division, she left in 2010 to launch her own business, YourLife, Inc., a Seattle based social venture revolutionizing the career development space through crowd sourced mentoring and career coaching. 

In addition to her professional endeavors, Jamie recently started a family, giving birth to her daughter, Aspen Lyn, two months before officially incorporating her business.  Jamie holds a Master in Business Administration with distinction from London Business School and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with honors from Washington University in St. Louis.  She is a member of the City of North Bend’s Economic Development Commission, is a speaker and volunteer for Washington Business Week, is a climber and fundraiser for The Breast Cancer Fund, and is the Community Coordinator for OLS at Bellevue College.  In her free time, she enjoys going on adventures near and far with her family, exploring the many mountain peaks of Washington, and getting involved with causes and issues she cares about.
