Switching jobs can be a stressful ordeal at the best of times and even more so when you’re leaving a professional career, stability, good pay and benefits to step out on your own. But that’s exactly what Jamie Yamanaka did. Leaving the stability behind to follow her passion.
Growing up in the traditional martial arts, a style brought to Canada by her father Jamie excelled and represented Canada on the world stage, including a gold medal win at games held in Israel.

On this episode of Run it Like a Girl, Jamie talks about leadership, and why a dictatorship-style doesn’t work. She has advice to those just starting out, encouraging others to step forward, ask questions and take advantage of leadership opportunities.
