Brenda Jacobson:

Reflecting on her 5-year recovery from a major accident, Brenda realized that she could have reduced this time by several years if she only knew then how important emotions were to succeed in all realms of life. After leaving a career in corporate finance and business strategy, Brenda re-purposed her skills to create a FUN, FAST, EFFECTIVE way for people of all ages to develop emotional intelligence skills. Through card games, integrating brain science with game dynamics, the YouEQ platform optimizes the learning and retention centers and trains the brain to use these techniques as a habit—ongoing, without having to consciously think about it. This is the ultimate state of emotional intelligence.
