Business Service folks include the IT,  finance (including the occasional bookkeeper), engineering, management, personnel,  insurance, brokers of every kind (including real estate), security, design services right on out to the landscaping people, and so many more. 

Professional Services require a degree in that discipline to even practice it!  The classic folks include the architects, CPAs, lawyers, and  doctors.  Today, it can even include everybody from educators to undertakers. 

Personal services include the folks who maintain your body including your nails, hair, muscle tone, weight, etc., and then handle how and where you take that body, i.e. the travel agents, delivery services, and more.
