Peer Power Blog
This blog is about the power of peers in the IT space. It is designed as a place to share things I have learned the past 24+ years running a business as well as meeting the growing demands of business owners we experience leading the Heartland Tech Groups - a peer group network for IT business owners.

Remembering One of Our Own
This past week we lost another member of the HTG family with the passing of Chirag Patel who is a member of HTG11 in the UK. Chirag was a Director with the team at NetStar IT. He passed on Saturday July 14 and will be deeply missed. Here is a picture of him with some of the HTG11 group.
His funeral will be held on July 21 at 11 AM and a number of the HTG11 group will be in attendance. We will be providing a way for you to be involved in a charity in his honor at the request of his wife, Dipti, in the days ahead.
Please keep the NetStar IT family in your thoughts and prayers. This is always a difficult situation, but certainly even more so when the person is only 34 years old as Chirag was. I had opportunity to get to know him during our HTG interaction. He was a man who was passionate about life and always had a smile on his face. He could light up a room with his presence.
Once again, I feel compelled to remind you that life is not predictable. Chirag's passing drives home the need for each of us to have our plans up to date, and to be sure we never miss the opportunity to let those in our patch know we love them. Preparation is so important for each of us when the unexpected happens. We can't prepare after the fact - so please ponder where you are in that process and get your four plans complete!
