There is huge expectation gap between college campus to corporate office young talent pool is expected to perform but they expect to get mentorship and guidance with practical skills. This leads to frustration, feeling of stagnation, and leads to people quitting and sometimes even losing confidence. But I wasn’t content to let this problem continue”.

“I intend to use my secret Tri-spear strategy formula to help these young professionals to develop a winning mindset, concept, and skillset (all 3) and learn the practical aspects of what’s needed in a real work environment. Hence, I also do special personality visualisation and goal setting sessions where people find their real calling. Once you understand your own WHY, then WHAT and How becomes easier”.
