Could You Use a Free Hour of Kindness?

One Hour Friend gives you someone to listen and care. A kind voice, even if just for a while.

Let's Talk.

Sometimes talking to a friend makes a bad day good, or a good day better.  The mission of is to provide positive companionship for those who need an attentive ear, a shoulder to lean on or a human connection.

Meet Your New Friend, JT Autrey

About JT

I’m a husband of 28 years, a father of six girls and a grandfather of five who are the apples of my eyes.  I studied English in college, spent five years in small-town journalism, and then served 25+ years as a leader in Information Technology for a Fortune 20 Health Care company.  I have earned multiple awards for accomplishments, values and partnership with customers.  My family and I live in a log home in the woods, along with five dogs and wildlife galore.  I have Kentucky roots, and I find solace and comfort in a nice mountain view.

Why Start

In both journalism and IT, the most rewarding part of my career was working with and learning from amazing people.  In journalism, I loved interviewing folks - from politicians to athletes to everyday people - to find out what drove them, what made them smile, and what they did to beat adversity (which we all face at times).  In IT, it was helping team members learn and grow their skill sets and careers.  I have been described as genuine and trusted, and I am proud of that.  I am not a social creature, but I thoroughly enjoy one-on-one conversations.  I am confident that starting will provide a positive service to customers.  I am equally confident it will be an enriching and gratifying experience for me as well.

Let's Spark a Conversation

I like to start and close sessions with “positive karma.”  This can be some large or small bit of recent happiness, or maybe something you are working toward.  Here are other ideas to consider if conversation slows:

I am also very comfo

Free 1 Hour Session

This service is being offered Free for the time being.

That could change down the road, but for now I want to learn if this service is of value to anyone.  I’m not worried about making money with it right now.  I’m hopeful if there are people who could use an hour of kindness and caring, they’ll be more likely to sign up for a session if they don’t have to worry about paying for it.
