About Eric Winger

Our perception of time is key to how we use our time. The most fundamental way to change that perception is to give our time. This opens us up to new opportunities and ideas from which we can build to really make a difference. ... Yes, we *do* have time to make a difference!

  1. Wish I could “Love” this. You would make a brilliant mentor. Gorgeous photo, too.

    And on another note, I’m heading to my very first Toastmasters session next week. A little nervous but a lot excited!

    Keep on giving! šŸ™‚

    Thanks, Cat!

    And kudos to you for giving Toastmasters a try. If you’ve got questions about it, drop me a note. I’m happy to help!

    Take care,


  3. Hi Eric,

    My name is Diane. I can openly share that I absolutely love how giving you are. I am a firm believer in sharing and giving to others as well! I have only just started reading your blog posts and think they’re warm, caring, honest, thoughtful and very unique. It takes a special kind of person to give without expecting anything back from anyone. I am a teacher, mentor, coach and now a blogger from Sydney, Australia. I have recently started writing my own blog and am very new to the blogosphere world. Even so I am LOVING it! My blog is called kidsareleaders. All the best with your blogging. I will be sure to follow. All the best! Cheers Diane šŸ™‚

      Hi Diane,

      Thanks for your kind words. I very much appreciate it.

      I took a quick look at your blog, and I like your motivation. Having 3 middle schoolers in our house, I know how valuable it is for kids to have positive role models in their lives. Not only family, but friends, community and even a voice from the other side of the world. šŸ™‚

      It is my sincere hope that as you start writing about giving back to kids and helping them improve their lives that it gives back to you as much as you can possibly imagine.

      Best wishes on your endeavors. I’ll see you around the blog.


      • Thanks for your reply Eric. Also thank you for taking the time to take a look at my blog. I hope you and your 3 middle schoolers get something out of it from the other side of the world! Yes, see you around the blog. All the best. Cheers Diane šŸ™‚
