Most driven young adults care about thriving in amazing careers and living fulfilling lives. We at ThreeEQ would also say that building up your “personal operating system,” soft skills, and direction early on is just as important.

Having guided holistically, strategically, and successfully 1-on-1 hundreds of mainly high-achieving young people (including his own two happy, compassionate Gen Z young adults and rising leaders), ThreeEQ’s award-winning Chief Mentor Jason Ma and Team ThreeEQ celebrate all of the worthy outcomes coveted by many. That said, they are not easy to achieve without high-quality preparation with trusted, top-notch guidance.

These days, most young people, especially high achievers, often feel over-stressed or anxiety-ridden. Given the pressure to succeed and a plethora of digital and other distractions, various young adults can struggle a bit in finding their way in today’s highly competitive landscape in our turbulent, ever-changing world.



Remarkable Outcomes of Our Students/Mentees


ThreeEQ’s expertise is unparalleled in the industry. We measure our success by the satisfaction and remarkable outcomes of our Private Client Families and Individuals. We warmly invite you and your family to explore and be inspired by the Testimonials and Success Stories of our Students’ Successes. We at ThreeEQ are inspired by our nearly 100% success rate with coachable, committed, and decisive Private Client families with Next-Gen achievers.

Right Now, You Are Probably a Bit Stuck

Situation 1

As a COLLEGE OR GRADUATE STUDENT, you want to achieve, grow, live happily, do well in academics, research, and extracurriculars, hone powerful soft and hard skills, build meaningful connections, get great internship and job offers, and thrive in an impactful, rewarding career path or family business—but are unsure how BEST to do so.

Actually, many students at Ivy League and elite colleges face high stress and anxiety—or even depression. (Read Penn ranked highest out of the Ivy League for mental health—with a D+. Also, view The myth of the Ivy League.) 

Back in high school, most of these students and their parents shortsightedly worried about college admissions. However, they didn’t build strong enough emotional, social, and leadership intelligence (“3EQ”) with high-quality, third-party guidance. Now these students face incessant competition and feel lingering “imposter syndrome.”

We believe that college or grad school ISN’T your destination but is PART of your journey. It is essential to think longer-term THROUGH college, NOT shortsightedly just AT college/grad school! College or grad school is a stepping stone to your greater career and personal success and growth for decades to come!

All the while, the best companies hire and develop only the very best candidates for their coveted internships and jobs. For example, Google’s hiring rate has been 0.25% (1 hire out of 400 applications). “It’s 20 times harder to get into Google than to get into Harvard,” said Laszlo Bock, Google’s former SVP of People Operations. Don’t be surprised to see hiring rates ranging from less than 1% to 3% for coveted jobs at top companies in consulting, i-banking, and some other sectors.

Situation 2

As a YOUNG ADULT AT WORK, you want to grow, achieve, and live happily, hone powerful soft and hard skills, build meaningful connections, do well in your current job or get a great next job in a company or your family business, pave an impactful, rewarding career path, and be more succession-ready as inheritors in UHNW families—but are unsure how BEST to do so.

Please review the last 2 paragraphs in Situation 1 above. We would think that your own circumstances would have some uniqueness.

The good news? Regardless of your situation, we can help and guide you to achieve success with GREATER life-cycle impact and gains, better relationships, and peace of mind, and without the usual stress and anxiety.

The ThreeEQ “4S and 3EQ” Mentorship Framework

Harness our uniquely powerful, robust, structured, and personalized 1-on-1 mentorship and coaching methodology that covers and hones four essential, interconnected domains (collectively, the “4S”):

  • Visionary Story (narrative), including empowering Character (the sum of all habits and choices),
  • Emotional and Mental States that support peak performance,
  • Comprehensive Strategies that are interconnected for maximum effectiveness,
  • Powerful Soft skills that, together with hard skills, help you produce and rise higher and faster than even your driven peers, and
  • Ability to execute.

Along the way, we meticulously cultivate your pragmatic Emotional, Social, and Leadership Intelligence (“3EQ”). This approach establishes a stronger foundation and pathway for sustained, greater success and well-being.

Imagine achieving greater life-cycle impact, stronger relationships, and better happiness and peace of mind with family and friends, in higher education, within communities, and at companies and non-profits. It prepares you to navigate and mitigate risks of opportunity losses in our turbulent, ever-changing real world.

In our experience, personalized 1-on-1 coaching significantly surpasses group coaching and “mass-market” webinar or product training in its impact and depth. For high net worth families, our work also enhances legacy and succession planning—rooted in solid family values and free from the usual stress, anxiety, and sleep deprivation.




To learn more about how we can help you, depending on your life stage, take a look at the following:

Enhancing Purpose and Thriving as a University Student

We help you choose and optimize rigorous yet balanced course loads year to year, enhance your GPA, plan for test prep, and select a major (and any minors) that complement your personal interests and career aspirations.

We encourage and guide you in applying for meaningful and often highly selective internships (for which we may provide choices or connections, if appropriate, and certainly guidance) to obtain impressive work and leadership experiences and desirable skills. We also train you to maximize your contribution to relevant extracurricular/community activities and to build great relationships with your “ecosystem constituents.” This will better position you for a thriving career or a competitive university transfer application season.

Planning for and Applying as a Transfer to Highly Competitive Universities or Graduate Schools

If you are planning to apply as a transfer student to other competitive U.S. (or UK) colleges and universities, please see the 3 phases with 24 line items (success ingredients) towards the bottom half of our High Schoolers page. The planning and application process is similar but has nuanced, significant differences for university transfer and graduate school applicants (to MS, MA, MD, MBA, and PhD programs). We delight in helping our students optimize their game plan and maximize their success by steering them through this complex process.

Preparing to Succeed and Thrive in Your Career or Family Business as a Working Adult

We are committed to helping you become a leader of your industry in the Americas, Indo Pacific, Europe/Middle East, or globally.

We help you define powerful visions, set and achieve short-term and long-term career goals, transform creative ideas into concrete business proposals, and become more consistently effective in execution. Moreover, we help you enhance and sustain international-grade decision-making, communication, and people skills, prepare for job interviews, plan for and navigate family succession (if applicable), and thrive in a lucrative career or family business.


IN SUM, by taking advantage of ThreeEQ’s preeminent, personalized, 1-on-1 mentorship, our ambitious students maximize their wins and successes, minimize their pain and opportunity losses, and gain clarity and better peace of mind. With our guidance, you will set a clearer direction, prepare wisely, achieve sound outcomes, and cultivate stronger, more succession-ready, next-gen leadership and other soft skills—while transforming powerfully upward and unleashing your own full potential.

During this meeting, we will explore your past, present, and future aspirations, address any confusion and questions, and discuss how we can help you make your dreams a reality. We will ascertain whether our services align with our shared values, your aspirations, and your investment mindset, including our fees.
