It was in his Thai fast food restaurant (the first of its kind) that Joel Friant had his idea for the Original Habanero Shaker.
Before this Joel had worked in real estate. He was a salesman, and he was quickly learning the business and paving the road to success. He also remodeled homes and sold them for a profit, proving his business savvy.
Confident in his business abilities, Friant opened his restaurant in 1995, earning him the nickname “The Thai Guy.” The restaurant was well reviewed and the customers loved the spicy food. Joel wanted to find a way to put this spiciness inside his customer’s kitchen and he began to experiment with Habaneros. He perfected a method of drying and flaking the peppers, and soon the Original Habanero Shaker was on every major retail grocery store in the state of Washington. People were crazy for it.
Joel sought new business opportunities in a familiar place: real estate. He became a salesman once again and quickly climbed the ranks to become the top salesperson in his office. This prompted Joel to venture further into the real estate business. He had learned about mortgage rentals and opened an office that presented them at reasonable rates for real estate buyers.
In 2008 the financial crisis hit, and Joel was inspired to inspect the elements of success. HE analyzed the traits of successful and unsuccessful people and invented a new way to look at business and finance.
Joel used his investigation into success to help other people by holding seminars over the web and writing articles for business publications. He continues to share his wealth of knowledge and is currently studying how cryptocurrency can help people achieve success. He also continues to sell the Original Habanero Shaker, expanding into new markets with its classic and spicy flavor.
