Joel began his working career in the home remodeling and real estate sales industries before venturing into the restaurant business in 1995, after creating the first ever Thai inspired fast food concept in the U.S.

The Origins of the Habanero Shaker

During his time in the restaurant business, he created his flagship product known as The Habanero Shaker after deciding to take his love for the habanero chile pepper to the next level. Joel Friant tasted his first habanero in High school after a friend gave it to him. He cemented his love for habanero pepper after visiting Jamaica and getting the opportunity to taste many other habanero varieties.

The Habanero Shaker idea was born when Joel noticed there were no habanero shakers in the market at the time. He wanted more people to enjoy habanero as much as he did but realized he had to make it easier for people to consume habanero chile pepper in its best form (raw, dry and original). Most habanero available in the market at the time was either mixed with cheap spices or salt.

Joel made the Habanero Shaker and started selling his product to some of the biggest grocery stores in Washington before starting his own real estate ”flipping” business (buying, rehabilitating and selling real estate foreclosures).

Back to real estate

In 2003, Joel ventured into the mortgage business to help his friends among other people become homeowners. He rose rapidly to become a top sales person before opening a mortgage lending company.

Success training interests

After the 2007/2008 global financial crisis of and subsequent slowdown of the real estate industry and the economy as a whole, Joel Friant decided to switch gears and find out the secrets of success, i.e. why some people succeed/fail in life, financially and otherwise. His new discovery journey prompted him to create his very own success concepts such as ”The Income Thermostat” inspired by the work of Wallace Wattles and Maxwell Maltz.

Joel started teaching his success concepts to anyone/everyone who cared to listen, kick-starting his journey as a success trainer. Joel now writes articles for success publications worldwide. He also speaks/has spoken to thousands in seminars.

Online business interests

Joel became interested in online business in 2012 after stumbling upon a course about selling on Amazon and eBay. This course prompted him to take his Habanero Shaker sales to the next level. Joel has also used the internet to market and sell his other products/services.

His online business interests also led him to discover crypto-currencies. He began engaging in success training to help others understand essential concepts such as cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, all while furthering his passion and love for his Habanero Shaker.
