Mr. Jim Wells

Education Consultant
Former Principal at Cypress Creek High School

"There is a critical need to produce competent workers for our changing, global economy. Preparing students for success in post-secondary opportunities that will connect them to these viable jobs is critical to the well-being of our economy and to the future of our nation- our young, diverse population in Houston is one of the greatest resources we have, and we should view it as a solution rather than a problem”

Past President of the Texas School Counselor Association
and Lead Professional School Counselor

"Counselors in secondary education find it increasingly difficult to make contact with every student assigned to them due to large student loads and increasing responsibilities. LifePlan Labs allows counselors to reach more students as they collaborate with classroom teachers to present standards-based lessons that integrate college, career and life skills directly into the academic curriculum. This program gives school counselors access to greater numbers of students to help them prepare for whatever challenges life after high school presents."

THE PASSION BEHIND LIFEPLAN LABS

how did lifeplan labs start

Throughout high school and college, LifePlan Labs founder Ryan T. Murphy found himself overcoming several challenges of his own, from nearly a decade of being bullied for stuttering to repeated rejections from universities. Once he found the strength to overcome those challenges through perseverance and the guidance of key mentors, he translated that powerful momentum into a passionate responsibility to help other young students achieve their personal success.  As he worked to mentor students, Ryan saw a common theme in the stories of students who were in serious trouble from defaulting on college loans: these students did not have a complete plan before starting college. He realized that understanding how to plan for the transition to college and career is a gap for students, and something that high schools and colleges need to address. That’s how LifePlan Labs was born and how we help students find success.

We believe a strong academic foundation is absolutely necessary for success, but the crucial component of envisioning success and planning “all the way to the end” is missing as a whole. We believe that a solid plan is crucial to overall success, and our team has worked hard to make our program the best of its kind.

Our team of talented people have a passion for education and have shared this passion through the creation of a collection of over 40 concepts related to success planning that are incorporated into the custom curriculum offered by LifePlan Labs, including how to develop a solid execution plan to ensure success, despite seemingly impossible obstacles.
