Officially launched in January 2013, The Academy of Positive Change is the new one-stop-shop for entrepreneurs and business owners looking for an opportunity to personally grow themselves, their business or both. “We are experts in human behavior and change,” stated the founder, Adrian Law. “After 14 years in the performance improvement industry, we provide top-quality products coupled with inspirational training and coaching to give the client the confidence and support needed to achieve their goals quickly, no matter what their past or present circumstances may be.”

While similar programs with great motivational coaches exist, Law’s program truly sets itself apart from the competition by offering one-on-one interaction. “Rarely can you just pick up the phone when you need guidance from a life coach quickly. Imagine trying to give Tony Robbins a call to ask for his advice. It’s just not going to happen,” stated Law. “With The Academy of Positive Change you can get direct access to the owner and receive proven strategies that work.”
For more than a decade, Law’s companies have been called to go into businesses of all sizes to see what works and what doesn’t. “We absolutely love what we do. To make the world a more positive place is the company’s mission statement and that is something that I believe we achieve every single day,” stated Law.
His website offers podcasts, webinars and regular video blogs free of charge to its visitors. They also have access to scientifically proven audio programs that help clients relieve stress, sleep better and even lose weight. Visitors can even go through a special profile that will allow them to learn their strengths, weaknesses and ways to communicate more effectively. Law’s company also provides additional programs, personal and business coaching services, and annual retreats catered to fit each client’s need.
