The new trend REST, we get so funky in the business of life thinking we are winning, when some times we are just losing.
Due to being flat out tired and running on empty.
Can you be more productive after taking some time off or out from work or running the business?
Positivity and a can-do outlook is a vital part of being a leader. A leader’s job is to influence and motivate others to achieve a common goal. A good leader does not throw in the towel when things get tough - instead, they stay solution focused. This keeps the morale of the team alive, and keeps everything moving in the right direction.

Syed Balkhi - IT Entrepreneur
Perfection is a curse.
Innovation can be messy.
Learn and improve.
Syed Moiz Balkhi was born in Karachi, Pakistan, and moved with his family to America in his early childhood.
After doing spectacularly well on a test, he jumped two years ahead, and started high school at the age of 12! (In the USA, children start high school at the age of 14, after middle school). During his time in high school, young Syed started experimenting with Wordpress, and became very good at it. Later on, he took on a team of people who would create websites for clients.
While this was happening, he realised that a common problem that kept arising was that his customers were not sure how to use Wordpress. He saw a need for a learning facility to help people get the most out of it. This prompted him to create a tutorial website attached to Wordpress, called WPBeginner. This was almost immediately made available to the wider public. This led to him being invited to be the keynote speaker at a number of WordCamp conferences.
Before he had started getting involved with wordpress, and web development, Balkhi’s first love was cricket. He had been a keen player in high school, but had put it on hold in order to pursue his newer projects. But this was definitely not the end…
Some time later, he returned to his love of cricket. He used his marketing skills to get more people interested in the sport in the USA. He became a Board Member of Cricket Council USA.
Aside from his entrepreneurial endeavours, Syed Balkhi has accomplished a lot in philanthropy as well, playing a key role in the building of brand new schools in places including Guatemala and Cambodia. He also has a keen interest in commercial real-estate.
Today, he owns several online businesses, and is an investor in many more.
