Corinne Edwards has traveled several life paths – from travel agency owner, to sales trainer, author, editor, lecturer, life coach, media coach, TV host – and blogger.
She is the author of several books, Low Pain Threshold, Love Waits on Welcome . . . and other miracles, A Woman Without A Man , Sales Lies and Naked Truths, Media Creation, Are We Spiritual Yet?, Write Your Book, Publish Your Book, Promote Your Book, When Your Husband Has Died – a Survival Guide and Love On The Rocks – Bad Endings- Good Beginning,
She published her first book of fiction, written with her son Paul. It is a dark comedy. A Ghost Without A Life, is fun, quirky not spooky.
Her latest, The Past – Holding on – Letting go is a republish/rewrite of her first book. It is a story in told in poetry.
All her books are on Amazon, both in Kindle and in Paperback.
In her business incarnation, she was one of the first women in the country to be invited into Rotary International (Do you remember when the Supreme Court said they could not keep women out?)
In recent years, her focus has shifted to the area of personal growth and human potential.
Edwards conducted a volunteer spiritual self esteem class for male inmates at Cook County Jail for two years.
Then for five years, she volunteered to run a program to rehabilitate prostitutes, in conjunction with Genesis House and the Cook County Court system in Chicago. It was the first one of its kind in the country and featured as a documentary on BBC.
She was the host of a weekly cable TV program starting from 1991 on Chicago Access and then produced and hosted over 400 shows for Wisdom Television, which was later sold. The show aired every weekday on DISH, Comcast and AT&T throughout the country from 1997 until recently. She was disappointed the new owners did not continue the series but someone made her feel better when they said, “You were on longer than Seinfeld!”
I mean, who hires a middle aged woman to do a national show unless she is Barbara Walters? It is proof that you can reinvent yourself as you go along.
Among the personalities she interviewed are Deepak Chopra, James Redfield, Joan Borysenko, Robert Bly, Mark Victor Hansen, Marianne Williamson, John Gray, Jean Houston, Les Brown, Wayne Dyer, Andrew Weil, Judith Viorst, Carolyn Myss, Neale Donald Walsch, Judith Orloff and Thomas Moore. All the best writers.,
She has been a life coach for 15 years.
Her newest enterprise is media coaching. She had a great coach and after more than 400 shows did learn quite a bit. If you are on Internet Radio or are interested in video blogging or podcasting, she will have something to offer you.
She says that “Since I am a lady “of a certain age,” I have been around the block a few times, made lots of mistakes, had some lucky successes and may have a few ideas to share with you.”
A storyteller, she likes to talk about her late husband, Julius, who used to throw this barb at her when he was mad.
“You read all these self-improvement books and you have NOT IMPROVED!”
She would like to say to him, “Listen, Julius, wherever you are, I want you to know I am still trying!”
She thinks we all are.
