Coal & Coca-Cola: Small Town USA 1949 (Visceral History: Coal Mining)

by Linda Shelnutt

Professional baker Marge (Rocchio) Hudnall borrowed money to open her bakery in 1949 at a time when women didn’t do that, especially not in Small Town USA… or maybe especially there! And to top off that feat, Marge instigated the Sloppy Joe sandwich back in the 50’s in The Malt Shop Bus Depot and Bakery. Making it a family affair, Marge’s sister Annie implemented the juicy concoction and Linda gave it the name. This story is involving enough to feel like you don’t want it to end, but the photo series adds to the satisfaction and additional related stories are available.

This is a December 2013 Kindle Abridged Edition of Coal & Coca-Cola, minus the appendices included in the original full edition which is still available. This edition includes the accompanying photo essay and a short hyperlinked list of Shelnutt’s Visceral History collection. Appendices material omitted in this abridged edition will be noted below.

The original 8 Visceral Histories led by Coal & Coca-Cola feature an historic mining industry economy in Fremont County, Colorado. Some of the holiday season editions of these VH’s are offered free, from one to five days to honor the 160 year era of mining in Fremont County Colorado, and to remind that in days long gone receiving a LUMP OF COAL in a Christmas stocking was a cherished blessing for warmth and prosperity during cold hard times. Of course anyone is welcome to return the gift blessing and symbolism of a lump of coal during any season by buying, reading, and reviewing!!! another of Shelnutt’s books after receiving one or more free. Or, if you’re a member of Amazon Prime borrow a copy free. Amazon pays authors well for borrows.

In any case, thank you for reading this… May warmth and prosperity come to you through honest efforts and kind thoughts.


Appendices included in the full edition of Coal & Coca-Cola:

1. An extended description of the definition and code of Shelnutt’s Visceral History

2. Copies of book covers of the the original 8 Visceral Histories

3. Book covers of a few other available books

4. Hyperlinked full categorized list of 48 of Linda Shelnutt’s books [17 full length books and 31 short works]

5. A biography and photo of the author

The appendices listed above are included in most of Shelnutt’s full length books and some of the short works, like the original full version copy of COAL & COCA-COLA.

Is a Solopreneur Business Right for You?

by Michele Christensen

Are you ready to join the solopreneur revolution? Stop looking for the same old ways to work and start thinking small, flexible, fun and fast. A solopreneur business is a great way to build a business that expresses who you are, helps people who need you and earns you a nice living while providing a lifestyle you love. A solopreneur is someone who runs a business mostly or completely by themselves. It’s a great business model IF it’s the right fit for you. This book will help you explore if you are the kind of person who would thrive as a solopreneur.

Here’s what experts are saying:

“This is a powerful book that will settle the question you may have been tossing around in your head, “Is a solo entrepreneurial business right for me?” There is no blanket wrong or right answer, only what is right for you, and Michele will help you answer that question for yourself in this well written book.’

~Becky Sangha, The Online Video Marketer,

“What a wonderful resource for anyone considering starting a solo-business! Michele Christensen tells it like it is to help those exploring solopreneurship decide if it’s the right business model for them.”

~ Dawn Mentzer – Dawn Mentzer Freelance Writing at and author of “The Insatiable Solopreneur” blog at

“Michele really lays it out for you, what it really is, why do it, the good the bad and the ugly. She gives you the data you need to make a choice. This book should be a must-read for anyone considering an solopreneur lifestyle.”

~~ Lisa Catarineau, Buzz Accelerator,

“If you’re thinking about taking the leap into a solo business, Michele prepares you well as she considers the personality types that will thrive in the solopreneur setting (and is honest about those who might not). Her thoughts on why the time is “now” for a solopreneur business resonated with me – I’ve seen firsthand how businesses are becoming more flexible, adaptive organizations and therefore more willing than ever to work with a solopreneur who can provide the right services.”

~ Lee Schneider, Creative Director, Red Cup Agency,

Solo Smarts: Solopreneur Interview With Caterina Rando (Solo Smarts: Solopreneur Interviews)

by Caterina Rando

Caterina Rando of Sought After Speaker Summit is a powerhouse public speaker so when she says that speaking skills can be developed, I am glad to hear it. I believe I’ve feared, like many of you, that great speakers have a natural gift and we may never be able to rise to it.

Speaking skills are important for more than live appearances. Caterina has some great tips for speaking via teleseminars, telesummits and webinars.

I loved this chance to ask Caterina questions, in fact, I got some great personal advice that helped me prepare for my first in person speaking opportunity.

One of many inspiring guests featured on Kelly McCausey’s Solo Smarts Podcast, this interview transcript (over 4500 words) is packed with advice for those who want to pursue more speaking opportunities, both live and virtual.

Follow the Money

by Ruben Alvarado

Follow the Money is based on a startling insight: there are three different forms of money, not just one; and the form of money a society implements determines the kind of society it will be, and what’s more, how it will think. For money is not neutral. It is a product of human artifice, the particular expression of a particular society, that at the same time determines the further course of that society, not just in terms of economics, but in all areas of cultural endeavor.

This thesis is implemented with verve. The book takes the reader on a journey through history, beginning with ancient Meso­potamia, through Phoenicia, Greece, and Rome, then through medieval and early-modern Europe in its interaction with the Near and Far East, all the way to the modern-day community of nations. It demonstrates in no uncertain terms just how decisive the institution of money has been, and at the same time just how misunderstood – its role, its effects, even the very form it takes. This is still the case, with the result that political choices and action end up entirely misguided. It is especially true of the attempt to address the credit and debt crises afflicting the world today.

The way forward will only come through a better understanding of money as institution. This book is a first step in arriving at such an understanding. As such, it takes the form of historical inquiry, which is the only form such a first step can take.

Follow the Money is illustrated and published in full color.

Crushing The Competition: The Entrepreneur’s Guide To Using Military Strategies To Outthink, Outmaneuver and Outperform The Competition

by Omar Johnson

Make no mistake about it business is war. The playing field no matter what category or niche that your business is in is crowded and filled with competitors big and small who have the ambition of not only dominating the marketplace and squeezing every dollar out it but to also crush you and drive you out of business rendering you useless to the customers that you serve or wish to serve. As an entrepreneur you must of course avoid this at all costs. But in order to do so you need a blueprint and a framework for fending off your competitors and ultimately crushing them because business like war is a kill-or-be-killed endeavor.

You have to be a general on the battlefield no matter how big or small your business is. You can be a simple or complex commander when leading your troops to battle, but one thing you must possess is the wisdom on how to effectively position your business and lead your troops. You have to know when and how to maneuver, when and how to attack, and how to retreat not because of cowardice, but to ultimately gain victory over your competitors. Plain and simple you have to be a master strategist and possess the ability to execute.

For this framework serial entrepreneur and author Omar Johnson in his book entitled Crushing The Competition: The Entrepreneur’s Guide To Using Military Strategies To Outthink, Outmaneuver and Outperform The Competition details the military strategies of great commanders and master strategists like Sun Tzu, Ghenghis Khan, Hannibal, Attila The Hun, Miyamoto Musashi and many others that you can draw inspiration from and utilize when forming and executing strategies for your particular business. Why do you need this book? Because as Sun Tzu said in the book The Art of War:”The Art of War teaches us to rely not on the likelihood of the enemy’s not coming, but on our own readiness to receive him. Not on the chance of his not attacking, but on the fact that we have made our position unassailable”. The bottom line is that your enemies will come, your competition is fierce. They will be prepared. You must be more prepared. Your strategies must be sound and as Sun Tzu said that’s when you make your position unassailable. Crushing The Competition is the ultimate guide for you as an entrepreneur in your quest to make your position in the marketplace unassailable.
