"I am theWay, the Truth, and the Life." Life is a tool one uses to define who you are, set goals, and to make decisions. Success is not final; failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts. The mornings of the September are crisp and golden , by all these lovely tokens;September days are here. "Shanah Tovah ." Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, most commonly known as,'the Feast of Trumpets.' Much of the day is spent in synagogue The Torah is read on both mornings of Rosh Hashanah. Rosh Hashanah is the Creation of the World. It is a time to recreate ourselves by recognizing our faults, repenting and asking forgiveness from others for our sins, all leading to atonement, granted by God for our actions. A skilled worker, regardless of the job description, remains a treasure. Even the world's most successful individuals have experienced their fair share of setbacks and hardships. There's much to learn from their challenges as well as their success. Labor Day is the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Defense Day Of Pakistan Is being observed with traditional fervor and solemnity across the country. Defence Day is celebrated in Pakistan as national day to commemorate the sacrifices made by Pakistani soldiers in defending its borders. Kudos to the courage and bravery of Pakistan Army 9/11 a disastrous calamity which has changed the world . Every year we come back to remember the valor of those we lost, those who innocently went to work that day and the brave souls who went in after them. We have also come to be ever mindful of the courage of those who grieve for them, and the light that still lives in their hearts. Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11. This too shall pass! Remember, your good days are still ahead of you, may you have many of them.
DR. SYED ARIF JAMAL CHAIRMAN
Make it a September to Remember! Every new month feels like a bit of renewal, but there’s something special about September. The divine celebration of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is one of Judaism's holiest days as the Day of Atonement. September has its pride of Labor Day in United States of America , pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers and is traditionally observed on the first Monday in September.Peter J. McGuire, a carpenter and labor union leader, was the person who came up with the idea for Labor Day.
' THE CEASELESS LABOUR IS THE GRACE OF GOD.'
The sacrifices the Pakistani armed forces made in the war of 1965. 6 September as Defence Day ,is one of the most significant events in the history of Pakistan. Bravo ! We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer’s wreckage by the deteriorating 9/11 attacks which remain as one of the most traumatic events of the century, not only for Americans but also for the world as subjugated the peace and harmony. Let's anticipate that this year's Rosh Hashanah when much of the day will be spent in synagogue and the recitation of the Torah on both mornings of Rosh Hashanah may disseminate peace and prosperity across the borders and the blessings may escort the reality of Martin Luther King' Jr. dream of harmony. Kind post your opinion.
Thank you Best Regards

PRACHI TEHLAN FEARLESS | CONFIDENT | GRACEFUL | BEAUTIFUL
We have rarely seen a woman so enthusiastic about sports. You have been called the Queen of the court, what it feels like to be a part of domain no woman is ever allowed to or pursue by willing? Whatever I am today is because of sports. Sports has given me lifetime memories and learning’s at a very young age. It taught to be a strong individual and how to lead by life with dignity and respect. It feels great to do something apart from the crowd and thriving to be the best in it. I’ll always be proud of the fact that I wore my country flag on my chest and my family name at the back of my jersey which I represented my country at an international platformbeing the youngest captain of the Indian netball team.
Well it’s not a choice to be the captain. It’s an honour which one gets only when your coaches / senior officials think you can play the part well at the biggest level of representation in sports. It’s obviously a great motivation and extremely tough at the same time to have many additional responsibilities to handle other than focusing on your game. It’s about taking the team together with you in the same boat. What motivated you to be the captain of the Netball team in commonwealth games? QUESTION 02 It feels great to give back to the society. I can never forget the camps I have had with these NGOs promoting the sport. And the number of kids we trained. It was a learning process for me that how innocent and vulnerable these kids are who don’t even get basic facilities to play at a young age. They deserve to be supported by NGOs and big companies who are capable of providing basic infrastructure to these kids to go out and play. You are also the brand ambassador and mentor of Jaipur Foot and Netball development trust India. How do you see yourself in this position contributing towards your own community? QUESTION 03
I believe that it’s a birth right of every child to participate in some or the other sport. No matter they take it professionally or not. But it should be part of our lifestyle. Sports builds character and makes you a better human being. Sports helps to be physically mentally and emotionally fit. Do you believe in bringing up the spirit of sports in women as much as we do in men? QUESTION 04 Destiny. I was working for accenture as a consultant when I got an offer on Facebook from Shashi Sumeet productions for diya Aur baati hum in December 2015. I never thought I’ll be an actor. But here I am. I met the team and in a matter of three days they asked me to shift to mumbai to start working with them. My acting training was mostly on the job. Whatever I have learnt is in front of the Camera. Was it any difficult to be a part of showbiz after being a significant part of Sports domain? Were you treated any differently? QUESTION 06 Besides being a sports enthusiast, you are working as an actress now. What influenced this shift of career journey? QUESTION 05 No it wasn’t. I was treated with a lot of respect coming from a sports background and it helped me a lot in the industry. Sports teaches you to be a quick learner.. even that helped me learn the basic skills to perform my scenes. Showbiz is an extremely tough industry to be in. You can’t survive if you are weak mentally and emotionally. Sports prepared my base to be an actor at a very young age it seems ;) How is life different as an actress than a sportswoman? QUESTION 07 Being an actor there are more people who know you. You have name , fame , money. It’s also an unpredictable industry in terms of getting the work of your choice. You can be busy with a project for days.. and at the same time you can be free without one for days. Patience is must in being an actor. Being a sportsperson was the best time of my life. There is no stress of looking pretty. You are out in the sun getting tanned .. playing for your team .. and enjoying with your team mates. You play hard and you eat a lot :D
It was a great feeling to bring an international medal back home. Being a captain is tough and comes with a lot of responsibilities. Haven given that opportunity at such a young age has made me stronger to face bigger challenges in life. It prepared me to lead a graceful life tackling any small or big problem with a pinch of salt. You have worked in Punjabi, Malayalam and Telugumovies. How is it different than working on Television? QUESTION 11 Other than that, under your captaincy you have brought home medals and trophies, Silver Medal in the Beach Games 2011 and Gold Medal in 54th National Games. Describe your journey of captaincy. QUESTION 10 I’m waiting for a good opportunity. I have been very selective when it comes to choosing my projects. I want to be a part of the projects I can sit with my family and Watch. Have been very clear about certain things from the time the acting offer came to me. You have been seen in some of the major hits of TV including the Popular Drama Serial Diya Or Baati Hum. Do you now see yourself moving towards Bollywood Film industry? QUESTION 08 I don’t think any number of words can express how it feels to wear your Indian Colors and representing your country at one of the biggest games organized in the world. I was fortunate enough to play my first big games in my own country and my hometown that too in front of my family. Those were the priceless memories which I’ll cherish all my life. You were the youngest captain of the Indian Netball Team in Commonwealth Games 2010, held in Delhi. How did it feel like? QUESTION 09 TV is like a job. You are playing the same character for days. Whereas movies are more creatively designed in terms of its story, dialogues, shot taking, planning and execution. Both have their own pros and cons. I enjoy acting irrespective of what medium I get to be a part of. I am fortunate to make all my debuts at such good big platforms.
I have built some very good relationships and have come across some wonderful people in my journey as a sportsperson and as an actor. To name a few - my school coach Mr. VP Niroola who is a fatherly figure for me. My first director - Maqbool khan sir who gave me a confidence that I can act and who guided me during my initial days doing Diya Aur baati hum. My Malayalam film producer - Venu sir- who believed in me as a newcomer to play a main lead role opposite Mammootty sir in a high budgeted film like mamangam. What kept me going was being ambitious and hardworking and hope to find my light to shine. Of course, every career comes with it own set of challenges. Who or what was your major support in fighting against those challenges? QUESTION 12 People telling me how tall I am and I won’t get heroes to work with. People telling me that heroes have a big male ego and they would not work with an actor taller than them. Casting couch incidents which used to demotivate you mentally. Fighting against various odds off screen and on screen. Challenges have been there everyday. What kept me going is being clear what I want from life and my profession. Once you are clear with your path - things become easier. And all the bad is sidelined and the path to achieve your main goal becomes more clear. What were the challenges that were put forward you only to let you down? And how did you overcome it? QUESTION 13 I stay away from trolls and negative publicity. I am happy and content with it’s what I do and what I am doing. It doesn’t effect me anymore. You need to be mentally prepared for everything when you are in a profession where it’s very difficult to draw a line between your personal and professional life being a public figure. I’m glad I have not come across a lot of negativity from people. I like to keep it basic and simple and like to keep myself away from negative publicity. What is your take on the troll or bad publicity culture on social media? How do you manage the negativity thrown upon you? QUESTION 14
I also thought at a point that what am I going to do in life. We all struggle at some or the other point in our life and I believe struggle is a constant part of our personal and professional life. The only advise I’ll wish to share is seek happiness in whatever you do. If your personal and professional space doesn’t make you happy means there is something that’s not right. Everyone earns money eventually.. everyone wants to have all the luxuries.. the ultimate truth of life is being happy. There is no wealth bigger than that. Would you like to give some advice to our young, struggling generation? QUESTION 15 Thank you for making me a part of BGN family. I loved answering all the questions and I wish to meet Dr. Amber and the team soon once the Covid settles. I wish good health to everyone around and god gives us strength to fight all the odds. Dr Amber Jamal created the BGN Network as a powerful platform in USA and Canada? What special message you have for our BGN readers? QUESTION 16
DR. HUMA QAMAR
There’s no elevator to success- you have to stay firm and determined to achieve your goals in life. Persistence, perseverance and patience define the road to unlimited possibilities and eventually success.

The Sapphire Rosh Hashanah Labor Day Departing the Gentlest Look of Spring A timely caroling of autumn Neptune dissolves all boundaries The magical energy to cultivate thy spirit No matter which hemisphere you are in Emerging slowly growing ones wings for the spiritual evolution Hath the fog clears from the eyes The birth blossoms as forget-me-not Asters the symbols of powerful love, wisdom, valor and faith Purple Asters symbolize wisdom and royalty. Happy September Everyone! September,
HAPPY Rosh Hashanah!
At the doorstep of emerging spiritual energies let’s preview, how Rosh Hashanah is celebrated. Jewish people welcome the New Year in September and celebrate with trumpet blasts, prayers, and festive meals; this holiday is a time for reflection and marks the start of the Jewish high holy days. Rosh Hashanah is a chance not just to celebrate and look ahead, but to consider the past and review one’s relationship with God. It also marks the first day of a period known as the Ten Days of Awe, or Days of Repentance, during which a person’s actions are thought to be able to influence both God’s judgment and God’s plan for that person. In the biblical passage Leviticus 23:24-25, God tells Moses that the people of Israel should observe the first day of the seventh month as a day of rest and mark it with the blast of horns. In the lead up to Rosh Hashanah, the shofar a trumpet made from a ram or kosher animal’s horn which is regularly sounded in synagogues. The holiday itself is celebrated with even more shofar blasts, usually a hundred during the services on both days. Many Jews interpret the sound as a call to repent of sins and seek forgiveness from God. Work is prohibited on Rosh Hashanah, and many Jewish people spend the holiday attending special services at their synagogues and then celebrating with festive meals. The challah (traditional bread) that is eaten for the Rosh Hashanah season is round, symbolizing the eternal cycle of life. The challah is traditionally dipped in honey, symbolizing the hopes for a sweet New Year. The same is done with apples, which are made even sweeter with the addition of honey. In many places worldwide, synagogue attendance and family meals are still impossible due to the coronavirus, will celebrate outdoors or just wish their friends and family a sweet new year on a Zoom call. O September between the elements of air and earth Labor Day in United States of America occurs on September 6. Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers and is traditionally observed on the first Monday in September. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894. Peter J. McGuire, a carpenter and labor union leader, was the person who came up with the idea for Labor Day. He thought American workers should be honored with their own day. He proposed his idea to New York's Central Labor Union early in 1882. Labor Day is a federal holiday in the United States celebrated on the first Monday in September in any given year to honor and recognize the American labor movement and the works and contributions of laborers to the development and achievements of the United States. Beginning in the late 19th century, as the trade union and labor movements grew, trade unionists proposed that a day be set aside to celebrate labor. "Labor Day" was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, which organized the first parade in New York City. In 1887, Oregon was the first state of the United States to make it an official public holiday. By the time it became an official federal holiday in 1894, thirty states in the United States officially celebrated Labor Day. The labor history of the United States describes the history of organized labor; US labor law, and more general history of working people, in the United States. Beginning in the 1930s, unions became important allies of the Democratic Party. Is it even so? Then I defy you, stars! The native act and figure of my heart In compliment extern, ’tis not long after A turn in the month of September, a holiday! The nature and power of organized labor is the outcome of historical tensions among counter-acting forces involving workplace rights, wages, working hours, political expression, labor laws, and other working conditions. Organized unions and their umbrella labor federations evolved, merged, and split against a backdrop of changing values and priorities, and periodic federal government intervention. Over the years, particularly as the influence of unions waned, the significance of Labor Day in the United States changed. For many people it became an end-of-summer celebration and a long weekend for family get-togethers. At the same time, it has continued to be celebrated with parades and speeches, as well as political rallies, and the day is sometimes the official kickoff date for national political campaigns. The holiday is rooted in the late nineteenth century, when labor activists pushed for a federal holiday to recognize the many contributions workers have made to America's strength, prosperity, and well-being. by Huma Kirmani An author, a TEDx speaker
That Changed Lives The 9/11 attacks were a catastrophe Date: September 11, 2001 Location: New York New York City Pennsylvania United States Washington, D.C.
We present the narrative of this incident and the recommendations that flow from it to the President of the United States, the United States Congress, and the American people for their consideration. The September 11 attacks were a series of airline hijackings and suicide attacks committed in 2001 by 19 terrorists associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda. It was the deadliest terrorist attack on US soil; nearly 3,000 people were killed. The attacks involved the hijacking of four planes, three of which were used to strike significant U.S. sites. American Airlines flight 11 and United Airlines flight 175 were flown into the World Trade Center’s north and south towers, respectively, and American Airlines flight 77 hit the Pentagon. United Airlines flight 93 crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, after passengers attempted to overpower the hijackers. The plane was believed to be headed to the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C. In the immediate aftermath of the attacks, suspicion quickly fell onto Al-Qaeda. The United States formally responded by launching the War on Terror and invading Afghanistan to depose the Taliban, which had not complied with U.S. demands to expel Al-Qaeda from Afghanistan and extradite their leader Osama bin Laden. Many countries strengthened their anti-terrorism legislation and expanded the powers of law enforcement and intelligence agencies to prevent terrorist attacks. Although Bln Laden initially denied any involvement, in 2004 he formally claimed responsibility for the attacks. September 11 attacks, also called 9/11 attacks, series of airline hijackings and suicide attacks committed in 2001 by 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda against targets in the United States, the deadliest terrorist attacks on American soil in U.S. history. The attacks against New York City and Washington, D.C. caused extensive death and destruction and triggered an enormous U.S. effort to combat terrorism. Some 2,750 people were killed in New York, 184 at the Pentagon, and 40 in Pennsylvania where one of the hijacked planes crashed after the passengers attempted to retake the plane; all 19 terrorists died. Police and fire departments in New York were especially hard hit; hundreds had rushed to the scene of the attacks, and more than 400 police officers and firefighters were killed. The destruction of the World Trade Center and nearby infrastructure seriously harmed the economy of New York City and created a global economic recession. The U.S. and Canadian civilian airspaces were closed until September 13, while Wall Street trading was closed until September 17. Many closings, evacuations, and cancellations followed, out of respect or fear of further attacks. Cleanup of the World Trade Center site was completed in May 2002, and the Pentagon was repaired within a year. The attacks resulted in 2,977 fatalities, over 25,000 injuries, and substantial long-term health consequences.
Bin Laden orchestrated the attacks and initially denied involvement but later recanted his false statements. The history, culture, and body of beliefs from which Bin Ladin shaped and spread his message are largely unknown to many Americans. Seizing on symbols of Islam's past greatness, he promised to restore pride to people who consider themselves the victims of successive foreign masters. He used cultural and religious allusions. He appealed to people disoriented by cyclonic change as they confront modernity and globalization. His rhetoric selectively drew from multiple resources as Islam, history, and the region's political and economic malaise. The most important failure was one of imagination; the leaders did not understand the gravity of the threat. The terrorist danger from Bin Ladin and al Qaeda was not a major topic for policy debate among the public. Before 9/11, the United States tried to solve the al Qaeda problemwith the capabilities it had used in the last stages of the ColdWar and its immediate aftermath. These capabilities were insufficient. Little was done to expand or reform them. The CIA had minimal capacity to conduct paramilitary operations with its own personnel, and it did not seek a large-scale expansion of these capabilities before 9/11. The CIA also needed to improve its capability to collect intelligence from human agents. Al Qaeda's new brand of terrorism presented challenges to U.S. governmental institutions that they were not well-designed to meet. Though the top officials understood the danger that there was uncertainty whether it was just a new and especially venomous version of the ordinary terrorist threat the United States had lived with for decades, or it was indeed radically new, posing a threat beyond any yet experienced. At no point before 9/11 was the Department of Defense fully engaged in themission of countering al Qaeda, even though this was perhaps the most dangerous foreign enemy threatening the United States. There were opportunities for intelligence and law enforcement to exploit al Qaeda's travel vulnerabilities. Since 9/11, the United States and its allies have killed or captured a majority of al Qaeda's leadership; toppled the Taliban, which gave al Qaeda sanctuary in Afghanistan; and severely damaged the organization. Yet terrorist attacks continue. The enemy is not just "terrorism." It is the threat posed specifically by terrorism, by Bin Ladin and others who drew on a long tradition of extreme intolerance within a minority strain that does not distinguish politics from religion, and distorts both. The enemy is not Islam, the great world faith, but a perversion of Islam. The enemy goes beyond al Qaeda to include the radical ideological movement, inspired in part by al Qaeda that has spawned other terrorist groups and violence. Thus the strategy must match the means to two ends: dismantling the al Qaeda network and, in the long term, prevailing over the ideology that contributes to extremism and terrorism. The 9/11 story teaches the value of integrating strategic intelligence from all sources into joint operational planning with both dimensions spanning the foreign - domestic divide to prevail peace around.

“THE OLYMPIC MOTTO IS CITIUS, ALTIUS, FORTIUS, A LATIN EXPRESSION MEANING “FASTER, HIGHER, STRONGER”
HISTORY OF OLYMPICS: OLYMPICS PROVIDE UNTAPPED CHANCE TO IMPROVE HEALTH FOR ALL: The Olympic Games are held every fours to respect the ancient origins of the Olympic Games, which were held every four years at Olympia. The four-year interval between the Ancient Games editions was named an “Olympiad”, and was used for dating purposes. Time was counted in Olympiads rather than years at the time. Their creation was inspired by the ancient Olympic Games (Ancient Greek), held in Olympia, Greece from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD. Baron Pierre de Coubertin founded the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1894, leading to the first modern Games in Athens in 1896 He ancient Greeks loved competition of all sorts. Each year, the various city-states of Greece sent athletes to festivals of games, which were held to honor. The first recorded Olympic Games were held at Olympia in the Greek city-state of Elis in 776 B.C., but it is generally accepted that the Olympics were at least 500 years old at that time. The ancient Olympics, held every four years, occurred during a religious festival honoring the Greek god Zeus.

THE PARALYMPIC GAMES: Paralympics are a periodic series of international multi-sport events involving athletes with a range of disabilities, including impaired muscle power (e.g. paraplegia and quadriplegia, muscular dystrophy, post-polio syndrome, spina bifida), impaired passive range of movement, limb deficiency, leg length difference, short stature, hypertonia, ataxia, athetosis, vision impairment and intellectual impairment. There are winter and Summer Paralympic Games, which since the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea, are held almost immediately following the respective Olympic Games. All Paralympic Games are governed by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC). The modern Olympic Games or Olympics are leading international sporting events featuring summer and winter sports competitions in which thousands of athletes from around the world participate in a variety of competitions. The Olympic Games are considered the world's foremost sports competition with more than 200 nations participating. The Olympic Games are normally held every four years, alternating between the summer and Winter Olympics every two years in the four-year period. The evolution of the Olympic Movement during the 20th and 21st centuries has resulted in several changes to the Olympic Games. Some of these adjustments include the creation of the Winter Olympic Games for snow and ice sports, the Paralympic Games for athletes with disabilities. YOUTH OLYMPIC: The Youth Olympic Games for athletes aged 14 to 18, the five Continental games (Pan American, African, Asian, European, and Pacific), and the World Games for sports that are not contested in the Olympic Games. The IOC also endorses the Deaflympics and the Special Olympics. The IOC has needed to adapt to a variety of economic, political, and technological advancements.

Starting a service business in 2021 but don’t know where to actually start? Well, look no further because this article will break it down for you step-by-step so you can get right to it. Plus, I’ll be giving you some refreshing advice you might not find elsewhere so stay tuned! When looking to start your own service business, you might have a lot of questions. From how much to charge for your services, to what niche you should be in. Well, this article will take you through all that and help you start your journey into becoming a successful service-based business owner this year and beyond.
Starting a service business – the basics What is a service business? First, let’s outline what a service business is, so we’re all on the same page. A service business is essentially any business that offers professional support to its clients. This support is deemed a service and can take the form of anything from accounting, to design work and more. Service business examples That’s pretty vague, so let’s break down what a service business is with some examples. Here are just some of the services you could offer as a service-based business: So now we understand the basics of what a service business is, let’s start laying the foundation. The first thing you’ll want to do is decide on your niche or speciality. Consulting | Social media management | Copywriting | Virtual assistant tasks | Design work Accounting | Coaching | Admin | Coding/Development | And more Before you even think about setting up your website (I just know you’re itching to!), the first thing you’ll need to do is to pick your service business niche or speciality. This is important because, in order to figure out who your ideal client is, first, you’re going to need to decide on what you do. Of course, this entirely depends on the industry you want to work in. So let’s say you want to start a copywriting service business, you know your broad niche or speciality (copywriting), but you’ll need to break this down even further. The area of expertise or niche you go into will be determined by your experience, interests and/or what you want to learn. For example, you could be a copywriter who offers any of the following types of copywriting: Website copy | Blog posts or articles | Sales page copy | Email marketing | Product descriptions White papers | Press releases | Social media copy | And more Deciding on your service business niche or speciality Decide on your services Now you’ve decided your niche or specialism, you’ll then want to decide what services you’re going to offer. As a business owner, this is your bread and butter and perhaps the most important part of starting your service business. The service you create entirely depends on the niche you’re in, but I’d recommend starting with just one service. This step shouldn’t be rushed. It’s more important than you think to really make sure your chosen area of expertise is going to work hard for you. In fact, when starting a service business, it’s even more important that you pick one of these areas to be your niche and specialise in it. It will help you gain new clients when you have a speciality, instead of being a jack of all trades.
Setting up your website This will be your signature service that’s very specific and tailored to your ideal client. Trust me when I say, it’s easier to perfect one service than have three services that don’t work so well. You’ll want to make sure the service you offer is something that will either save your potential client time or make your potential client money. These two things are the key to any successful service. Clients want you to achieve one, or both of these things for them so make sure your service delivers. This is perhaps one of the least important steps on this list (even though I know you’re excited to get it done). Believe it or not but you don’t need a fancy website with tons of blog posts and content to be successful as a service-based business owner. In fact, all you need is a simple website which ticks a few boxes. Rather than go into this in detail now, bookmark this post to read once you’ve finished this one. How to find clients for your service business That post talks about the 5 things your business website needs to turn visitors into customers. Those 5 things are simple and you don’t need a designer or developer to help you do them. You have everything set up, now it’s time to find clients to pitch your services to. Here’s where my advice might differ from other people’s: I don’t think you should set up any social media accounts (unless you’re offering social media services) I don’t think you should build an email list (unless you’re offering email list services) I don’t even think you should be blogging to get new clients (unless you’re offering that as a service and even then, keep it to a minimum) The fastest way to get yourself up and running (whether you’re just starting, or as you go) is to invest your time in cold emailing potential clients.
Don’t forget the important stuff
Setting up your service business should be enjoyable, but you mustn’t forget about the important stuff. Making sure you have a contract to send clients once they agree to work with you is vitally important and making sure you manage your incomings and outgoings is too. As is your onboarding process, including sending a welcome packet.

HOME FITNESS ISN’T SLOWING DOWN IN 2021 CHECK OUT THESE
FITNESS TRENDS TOP 5 THE FITNESS SCENE HAS SEEN SO MUCH CHANGE IN2020. FITNESS CENTERS STARTED TO CLOSE WHICH MEANS NO MORE HOT YOGA CLASSES OR GOING TO THE GYM WITH FRIENDS. INSTEAD, WE ALL HAD TOADAPT TO WORKING OUT AT HOME. FOR PEOPLE LIVING IN SMALL SPACES, THIS WAS A STRUGGLE, BUT MANY PEOPLE MADE IT WORK SOMEHOW. IN FACT, MORE PEOPLE ARE FINDING TIME TO EXERCISE NOW THAN IN PRE-COVID TIMES. CLASSPASS REPORTED THAT “25% OF PROFESSIONALS ARE EXERCISING MORE NOW THAN AT THE START OF COVID-19”. IT’S GREAT NEWS BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE LEARNING TO TAKE BETTER CARE OF THEIR PHYSICAL HEALTH. FITNESS TRENDS IN 2021 ARE GOING TO REFLECT THESE CHANGES IN PEOPLE’S PREFERENCES. AS WE NEAR THE END OF THE PANDEMIC (FINGERS CROSSED!), PEOPLE WILL DEFINITELY MAKE THEIR WAY BACK INTO GYMS AND FITNESS GROUP CLASSES. BUT EVEN SO, THE CONVENIENCE OF WORKING OUT FROM HOME CAN NEVER BE REPLACED. THAT’S WHY HOME FITNESS IS HERE TO STAY FOR A REALLY LONG TIME. SO HERE IT IS – THE TOP FITNESS TRENDS OF 2021 TO KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR.
REMOTE PERSONAL TRAINING
more emphasis on holistic health, a good fitness tracker can measure a variety of metrics that reflect your health in different aspects. For fitness metrics, most can track the number of steps per day, distance traveled, and more. For sleep, it can track your sleep patterns and tell you about your sleep duration and sleep quality. Fitness trackers can also monitor your heart rate. These are just a few of the many features that these fitness watches offer. For a full guide on picking out the best fitness tracker, read this article. Also, take the quiz included in the article to find out which fitness tracker suits you best.
The two biggest hurdles when it comes to exercising is one, doing the right exercises that are right for you and two, getting the motivation to start working out. That’s why personal trainers are a huge business and will still be big in 2021 for remote personal training. It’s not necessary to have a person physically next to you to do. As long as you have the necessary equipment at home, your personal trainer will be able to plan workouts tailored for you. Oftentimes, you might even not need any equipment. If you’re looking for a remote personal trainer, Fyt Personal Training is a super affordable service that matches you with the best personal trainer that can meet your goals. If you’re not satisfied, you can get even your money back from your first lesson. Learn more here.
With more people incorporating fitness into their daily routines, it comes as no surprise that people are trying to squeeze in their workouts during their lunch break. Classpass’s report says they’ve seen a 67% increase in popularity for lunchtime workouts. Because of remote work, all you have to do is walk a few steps away from your desk and start your workout. It’s so convenient. OUTDOOR FITNESS I’m sure we’ve all been exercising outside in some sort of way. We see more people going on walks, runs, hikes, and even doing yoga outside. In 2021, we’ll be seeing even more of this. Some gyms are even starting to bring their fitness equipment outside for their members to use. We might even see more outdoor fitness classes hosted on the grass with appropriate social distancing guidelines. 05
Fitness isn’t just about losing weight or keeping fit in 2021. It’s about balancing your physical health while keeping your mental health in check. There’s going to be less emphasis on HIIT workouts (high-intensity interval training) and more on taking care of your health holistically. One of the best ways to incorporate mindfulness in exercise is to do yoga. That’s because yoga requires your motions to be slow so it allows you to focus on your breathing and being present in the moment. One of my personal favorite yoga tutorials is by Adrienne from Yoga With Adrienne on YouTube. It’s completely free to follow along with.
Fitness trackers aren’t anything new. They’ve been around for a while and have improved their functionalities over the years. But the reason why it’s going to be one of the biggest fitness trends in 2021 is that as more people are putting

30-DAY MEDITERRANEAN DIET MEAL PLAN FORWEIGHT LOSS The Mediterranean Diet may just be the best eating plan out there. This way of eating has become popular because it’s a well-rounded way of living that doesn’t force you to restrict or deprive yourself. It’s based on a way of eating that’s prominent in Mediterranean cultures- some of the healthiest in the world. If filling up on fish, fruits, veggies, and high-fibre foods sounds like your kind of diet, check out this 30 day Mediterranean diet meal plan and see if it’s right for you! WHAT IS THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET The Mediterranean Diet is less of a traditional diet plan, and more of a lifestyle based way of eating. It’s a way of eating that features foods typically eaten in Greece such as fish, fruits, vegetables, beans, high-fibre breads and whole grains, nuts and olive oil. Meats, cheeses and sweets are very limited, and the recommended foods are high in monounsaturated fats, fibre and omega-3 fatty acids. The Mediterranean Diet urges you to fill your body with healthy foods, putting a strong emphasis on fruits, vegetables and high-fibre grains. An average of 35% to 40% of calories on the Mediterranean Diet can come from fat, and these mainly come from unsaturated oils such as fish oils, olive oils, certain nut and seed oils, and from nuts. The diet is known and loved for its benefit to heart health, reducing your risk of heart disease by lowering levels of bad LDL cholesterol and improving cardiovascular conditions. If you find other diet plans to be restricting, this may be a healthy way of eating that can work for you.
DOES THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET WORK FORWEIGHT LOSS? Since the Mediterranean Diet isn’t a traditional diet, but rather a way of eating in certain parts of the world, it wasn’t specifically designed for weight loss. However, since it’s one of the healthiest diets around and decreases your intake of meats, cheeses and sweets, it’s an incredibly well-rounded and healthy way to lose weight without having to go on a strict eating plan. Keep in mind, that this all depends on your eating habits and creating healthy habits for yourself. Even healthy diets like this one aren’t a free-for-all eating plan and will work best coupled with exercise and an active lifestyle.
