Hogg Farmer Saves The World
Hogg Farmer Saves The World
For the first time in history the "common man" has the ability to change
the world. The day of the robber barons is quickly coming to an end.
As a self proclaimed conservative I believe in the individual and what he or she can
do in a free society Now that we have the internet, ideas can be freely shared with large numbers of people and
solutions can be offer up. Individuals can now take independent action.
If you want to protect the environment then you as an individual need to take matters
into your own hands and do what "you" can do. Stop the finger pointing and stop depending
on government to solve all your problems.
Case in point.
Five years ago a hog farmer & long distance hauler over heard a conversation where a couple of
guys were talking about running a diesel engine on vegetable oil. After many many hours on the internet
Paul Davis, the hog farmer, built his own biodiesel unit and ran his three trucks, tractors, lawn mowers etc
on used vegetabe oil he got free from local restruants.
Fast forward five years later, that would be today, and you'll find Paul down at his shop tinkering and overseeing
the biodiesel production plant he owns. Check out some of his video's at Biodiesel World http://worldtv.com/biodiesel_world

Blackstone's Byron Wien, Vice Chairman of Private Wealth Solutions Group, gave a speech laying out the wisdom he learned during his 80 years. Here are 15 of Wien's best life lessons, which teach us about improving our productivity, sleep, burnout avoidance, and everything in between.
According to TwoFold CEO Alison McMahon, a leader who doesn't care (or can't pretend to care) about his or her employees isn't much of a leader at all.
Why do people quit their jobs? Surely, there are a ton of factors: money, hours, location, lack of interest, etc. For Alison McMahon, an HR specialist and the CEO of TwoFold, the biggest reason employees jump ship is that they're tired of working for lousy bosses.
By and large, she says, people are willing to put up with certain negatives as long as they enjoy who they're working for. When that's just not the case, there's no reason to stick around:
Nine times out of ten, when an employee says they're leaving for more money, it's simply not true. It's just too uncomfortable to tell the truth.
Whether that's true is certainly debatable, though it's not a stretch to say that an inconsiderate and/or incompetent boss isn't much of a leader. If you run an organization or company, your values and actions need to guide and inspire your team. When you fail to do that, you set the table for poor productivity and turnover.
McMahon offers a few suggestions for those who want to hone their leadership abilities, though it seems that these things are more innate qualities than acquired skills. For example, actually caring about your workers or not depending wholly on HR thinking they can do your job for you.
It's the nature of promotions that, inevitably, a good employee without leadership skills will get thrust into a supervisory position. McMahon says this is a chronic problem that many organizations need to avoid, or at least make the time to properly evaluate and assist with the transition.
But since they often don't, they end up with uninspired workers. And uninspired workers who don't have a reason to stay won't stick around for long.
