Before Joel Friant became a real estate professional and before he began to teach others his methods for success, he owned a restaurant. His nickname the Thai Guy was earned at this restaurant, as it served Thai food in a fast food setting.
Joel left the restaurant to pursue his real estate career. He began working as an agent for a respected real estate firm. His hard work and knack for salesmanship led to him becoming the firm’s top salesman. When not selling homes, Joel was remodeling them. He took pride in this work, and his renovated homes were never on the market long.
Joel’s real estate firm opened a branch office in the early 2000’s. Because Joel had proven his effectiveness in the real estate market, he was asked to run this office. He accepted the offer, and for several years managed the mortgages and real estate loans offered by the branch office.
With the rise of the internet, Joel saw new marketing potentials. He began to analyze the world of e-commerce. He discovered new ways of interpreting the tactics of successful people and developed a course on the subject. He offered writings and seminars.
In 2012, Joel launched a website for his product the Original Habanero Shaker. Joel had developed this product during the time he owned his restaurant. It was a response to the other habanero shakers on the market, which were bland and unsatisfying.
Joel’s favorite variety of habanero peppers, the Scotch Bonnet, were an obvious choice for the pepper that was used in the Original Habanero Shaker. Joel set his shaker apart from others by not only using high-quality ingredients and manufacturing methods but also be packaging it in a high tech bottle. The Original Habanero Shaker’s bottle is designed to prevent the pepper flakes from going stale and losing their flavor.
When Joel is not managing the Original Habanero Shaker brand, he is studying bitcoin. He was one of the first people to realize the potentials of cryptocurrency and has spent years studying the market.
