The quest to find the perfect habanero pepper for his Original Habanero Shaker led Joel Friant to Jamaica, where he discovered the Scotch Bonnet. Joel selected the finest of these peppers, sun-dried them and flaked them into small pieces to create the first Original Habanero Shaker.
Joel has always been a tenacious entrepreneur. In 1995, before the creation of the Original Habanero Shaker, Joel opened a fast food restaurant. This fast food restaurant was unlike any before it because it served Thai food. Joel’s love of spice lent itself well to this style of food and was a precursor to the development of the Original Habanero Shaker.
After he launched it, Joel struck a few deals to get large grocery stores in Washington State to carry the Original Habanero Shaker. It sold well for a while and then Joel decided it was time to try test his business prowess in other ways. He began to purchase old houses and remodel them. He would then sell them for a profit. Soon after he became a real estate agent. Being the top salesman in his office, he was given a promotion. He began to manage the firm’s mortgage branch.
In 2008 the financial crisis hi America. Joel noticed the devastation caused by this and decided to devote his time to understand how some people can attain success and others can’t. He wanted to use this knowledge to help others, and so he wrote articles. These articles were read by many people and Joel’s advice resonated. Soon he was speaking at seminars for thousands of people.
Joel continues to study success to this day. In 2015 he began to study bitcoin and is now trying to utilize the power of cryptocurrency to help others grow their business. Joel also relaunched the Original Hanaero Shaker and continues to oversee it.
