Success Lesson I Learned From Making Biodiesel

People are a funny bunch!
Its amazing that the people that laugh at you when you try something out of the box end up being your best supporters when you succeed.
Back in the day I decided to make Biodiesel to run the farm truck & tractors. Fuel is one of the biggest expenses in farms so if you can keep the cost down your on a win!
So I did some research liked the idea and went to the pub & told a few people about my idea.
Within a week I had people coming around telling me not to do it.
People were laughing at me saying “Watch this idiot blow up his truck”
I almost decided not to pursue this idea, but a feeling I had deep down told me to give it a go.
So I made a processor, following all the instructions that I had learned ending up making high quality Biodiesel.

Don’t worry about my safety gear…….. at least I have gloves on!

After running my Truck & The farm Tractors, word had spread over town that I had made Biodiesel.
Oh how everyone’s attitude changed overnight.
All of a sudden everybody was behind me cheering me on, sourcing different used oil supplies and asking advice – I automatically became the expert in the field of Biodiesel in the eye’s of the locals, even though I’d only been making it for a month or 2.
So I learned a valuable lesson from this that I hold strong to this day.
If you try and do something different then automatically majority of people will talk it down.
However when you follow through & succeed then the people that tried to shoot you down end up becoming your biggest supporter.

Its funny when I started to tell my friends that I was looking at making money online by blogging the exact same thing happened, had people laughing at me, telling me I’m just a country hick there is no way I could do it.

    Awesome post Alex, You have the attitude of a real leader, farmer or not. People seem to forget that farming takes consistency to achieve the results desired, it is no different with blogging and you rock at it too 🙂

    • Alex Bender

      Kind words Susanne. Yes farming is something that you have to do everyday but you only get paid a couple of times a year. You just have to keep on doing the work & upkeeping the property

    • Alex Bender

  • Ron Sheldon

    You’re right Alex. People are funny. I guess it’s human nature. And well done for persisting. What a great project. I won’t be sitting on the fence. Cheers, Ron

  • Lynn Brown

    Glad you just went for it Alex because it not only sets an example for others but it keeps providing hope for others as well.

    • Alex Bender

      Wasn’t really trying to set an example – it was just an interesting lesson to learn about people.

  • Robert McCann

    You make a great point here Alex! Sometimes it is better to count the amount of people that are laughing at you as your cheering section for success. I always enjoy when people laugh at me and scratch their heads because I know they want higher results in their life, but just haven’t figured out the way to get them. Your post and your offer can solve both of those challenges. Cheers!

  • Robert McCann

    Great points here Alex. I am glad you didn’t blow yourself up, LOL. Too funny. Seriously, if more people would just chase their dreams, regardless of what others think about them, the world would be a much better place. I am going to take your advice and check out the biz. Appreciate it, thank you! Cheers.
