Skakel was employed at the beginning of his career as a railroad shipping clerk. While employed by the railroad he noticed the price volatility of coal fines which were a byproduct of producing more-in-demand forms of coal. At most times the coal mining companies were forced to store it or pay to have it disposed of. At times when there was a shortage of coal it could be processed into briquettes and used as a substitute. Later on he and three partners established a business as coal brokers. He thought to buy a former mine and started a business to receive fines and he stored it. He was then able to sell the fines when demand for it went upwards.
