Legacy and Legends Podcast Interview with Lee Midlane: Video Production Academy Coach
Welcome to the Legacy and Legends Podcast! This is our last featured guest for Women's History Month. Lee Midlane is incredible and joins us in our global reach from the UK!  Learn more about here here: LEE MIDLANE VIDEO EDUCATOR & COACH CEO & FOUNDER OF IT CENTRAL - HOME OF THE VIDEO PRODUCTION ACADEMY Have you heard the term – “not my first rodeo?” I think that could definitely apply to me in business! You could describe me as a serial entrepreneur, or a multi-passionate business owner. The reality is, I’ve been all about business since I was a kid! Let’s fast forward quite a lot! I spent 10 years as a chocolatier with my own chocolate business, and then worked for someone else managing their computer shop. I know – that’s quite a leap, but I have a technical background so not as big a leap as you might imagine. My background was originally in television and radio production, and then in education as a college lecturer. We launched our first Tech Academy, The Video Production Academy in November 2021, and we have members internationally. We help techstressed business owners make video’s for their business so that they can feel confident on camera and effectively connect with their audience. The irony of this is – before lockdown I wouldn’t speak in a room, or on camera. I’m such an introvert that speaking in any form used to send me into a panic – think flushed face, sweaty palms, palpitations – the works! But through practice and perseverance I can now hop on camera and feel totally comfortable and confident with presenting. (Don’t get me wrong – I still have my fair share of bloopers and outtakes!) It’s funny how life comes around full circle. Here I am again, a video educator, back to doing what I love – a combination of the media and education. I want to take what I’ve learned across a lifetime, my knowledge and experience to help other business owners and hopefully save them from going through some of the challenges we have. I have a huge passion for marketing, sales, technology and strategy, to help businesses run more effectively and generate more money. You can find Lee's Social Info at: Facebook Page: Facebook Group: Instagram: LinkedIn: Twitter: Website: Linktree: Email: Thank you so much for being here!

It is my absolute pleasure to feature my Mom, Mary Jo Licavoli, for Women's History Month. My mother is a beautiful example of the feminine leadership she applied to nurture and develop relationships both in and out of our home.  It's not hard to see where I got my example of excellent customer service and how to be a wonderful wife and mother and have a career, too! Not only did my mom work by my dad's side to help create Licavoli Appraisal Service, our family business growing up, she also earned a position as the business manager of our community school because of her attention to detail and ability to apply herself to learn and master all of the necessary accounting, budget, and management skills. My mom never missed a tuck in, taught me to read, always believed in my bigger dreams, and raised 6 incredible children who are all putting more good in the world. She stayed by my dad's side through incredible challenges and shows rock-solid unwavering faith and selfless love. She possesses an unusual amount of energy that has allowed her to excel in many things at the same time!  Mary Jo also has the determination to keep going until she gets the job done, no matter what it takes! Now retired, she continues to apply herself and takes on consulting or customer service positions when she wants to add more abundance to her life.  She is kind, generous, loving, smart, and beautiful inside and out. She also has a lot of fun, makes every visit special, enjoys swimming, spending time at the ocean, and caring for her flowers. Enjoy this special podcast which I will treasure forever, getting to save the best interview for last, to wrap up Women's History Month with my incredible MOM! I love you Mom.
