Motivated college/university students and working young adults need high-quality, third-party guidance to unleash their full potential, actualize their best selves, and achieve the greatest outcomes.

ThreeEQ CEO/Chief Mentor Jason Ma and Team ThreeEQ masterfully inspire and guide our students 1-on-1 to achieve great outcomes in university life, next-gen leadership, internships, post-college first jobs, and high-end career positioning, as well as to live more happily and transform upward—with pragmatic emotional, social, and leadership intelligence (“3EQ”) for greater impact and long-term gains.

We genuinely care about our students’ academic, personal, and career growth, as well as their contributions, skills, identities, relationships, and happiness, both now and for years to come. With our mentorship, you will position yourself as an up-and-coming, impactful, compassionate, next-gen leader who thrives without the usual stress and anxiety of university life and the real world.



Often, students and their families don’t realize how powerful our distinctive 1-on-1 mentorship is until they start working with us. With our guidance, families achieve great outcomes, gain peace of mind, enrich relationships, and mitigate the risk of (major) opportunity loss—all with sound family values.

Right Now, You Are Probably a Bit Stuck

Situation 1

As a COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY STUDENT, you want to grow, achieve, and live happily in college and beyond, do well in academics, research, and extracurriculars, obtain great internships, hone employable soft and hard skills, build meaningful connections, get a great job after graduation, or go to a quality graduate school and then follow an impactful, rewarding career path—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.) 

Why is this? Back in high school, these students worried about college admissions but didn’t build strong emotional, social, and leadership intelligence (“3EQ”) with high-quality, third-party guidance. Now they face incessant competition and “imposter syndrome.” 

A strong, positive growth mindset, key soft skills, and sound habits take time to develop.

All the while, for their coveted internships and jobs, the best companies hire and develop only the very best candidates. For example, Google’s hiring rate is 0.25% (1 hire out of 400 applications). “It’s 25X more competitive than the undergraduate admit rate of Harvard (which is now under 5%),” said Laszlo Bock, Google’s former SVP of People Operations. Don’t be surprised to see hiring rates ranging from a fraction of 1% to 3% for coveted jobs at many great companies. 

During the current global pandemic, hiring rates are even lower, as unemployment has created an even bigger surplus of applicants..


Situation 2

As an ADULT/LEADER AT WORK OR IN BETWEEN, you want to grow, achieve, and live happily, hone employable, soft, and hard skills, build meaningful connections, do well in your current job or get a great next job, and pave an impactful, rewarding career path—but are unsure how BEST to do so.

Review the last 3 paragraphs in Situation 1 above.

So, which of the above two situations applies to you?

The good news? Regardless of your situation, we can create a plan to help you and guide you to achieve success with greater impact and long-term gains (and without the usual stress and anxiety). Consider this: The above results are what we help our students authentically achieve. If we can do it for them, why can’t we do it for you?

To learn more about how we can help you, depending on your life stage, look under the following tabs:

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 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 bottom half of Personalized Success Coaching & Mentoring For High School Students. 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 and the World of Work

We are committed to helping you become a leader of your industry in the Americas, Asia 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 career or major family business.


IN SUM, by taking advantage of ThreeEQ’s foremost, compassionate, 1-on-1 mentorship, our ambitious students maximize their wins and successes, minimize their pain and opportunity losses, and achieve certainty and peace of mind. With our guidance, you will set a clearer direction, prepare wisely, achieve great results in competitive university life and/or career paths, and cultivate stronger, next-generation leadership and employable soft skills—while transforming powerfully upward and unleashing your full potential.

Start early, reduce stress, achieve greater success, and live more happily!
