A New Day
By Donell Edwards


The book is closed, the year is done, The pages full of tasks begun. A little joy, a little care, Along with dreams, are written there. This new day brings another year, Renewing hope, dispelling fear. And we may find before the end, A deep content, another friend. – Arch Ward


Hello to all of my followers and thank you for your support and patience.  If you have been following my blog for some time, you know that I have not written anything for almost a year.  I apologize for my absence, but I embarked on a new venture that took much more time than I imagined, but it was well worth it.  In March of last year I started my own talk radio show, CWR World News.  The title of that program was later changed to Donell Edwards: VIEWPOINTS.  On the program I interview a wide range of people on various topics with the intent of informing and educating listeners, and in some instances, hopefully changing the attitudes of listeners about social issues that are racially divisive.

After doing the program for several months, I recognized that I had an opportunity to help people through provoking thought and conversation about a number of vital issues and important causes.  However, I understood that I could not accomplish this task by myself, so I started my own talk radio network, The CWR Talk Network, which was launched in October 2017.

One of the causes that I have championed for many years is financial literacy, and one of our programs is The Lionel Shipman $hape Your Finances Show, with host and financial expert, Mr. Lionel Shipman, which is a financial and life empowerment show that focuses on our lives around money and finances.  Lionel interviews interesting guests that include business owners, financial advisors, insurance agents, educators and other professionals that show “how to” improve personal finances in many practical ways, as many of them share their own personal experiences.  The show also provides listeners with useful financial information that will help improve their financial lives and give life lessons to help them live life to the fullest. Listen to Lionel every Tuesday night at 7:30 PM Central and 8:30 PM Eastern time online at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/cwrtalkradio


Lionel Shipman Host: The Lionel Shipman $hape Your Finances Show


We are in negotiations to add another financial literacy program to complement Lionel’s that focuses strictly on personal finance, from budget planning, to getting out of debt, managing credit, saving, and investing.  Both of these programs will provide professional information about financial literacy, breaking the chain of generational poverty in some instances, and learning how to build wealth.  We hope to premier that program early in 2018.

Also, we have special plans for Financial Literacy Month in April.  Here are some of the guests that will appear on my show, Donell Edwards: VIEWPOINTS during Financial Literacy Month:
