Joel Friant: Habanero Mastermind

Joel Friant is the highly accomplished entrepreneur and mastermind behind The Original Habanero Shaker. While the shaker is one of his bigger successes, Friant has also had success in a few other industries. Over the years, he has worked in real estate and remodeling. He even garnered some attention in the mortgage business. In the 90s he also proclaimed himself “Thai Guy” after pitching the first “fast food thai concept”. Friant has accomplished a great deal in his life, and he enjoys sharing the secrets to success with others. He has written about the subject and even speaks in online seminars. Many of the concepts he teaches to other people are ones he has developed throughout his own personal experiences.

Idea Mensch asked Friant about what his typical day looks like and what advice he had for aspiring entrepreneurs, and he had a lot to offer. One practice that he feels has helped him become so accomplished is his bike riding. He told IdeaMensch that he rides his bike to clear his mind and help the ideas flow. In fact, he will pull over and write down his ideas as they come to him while on bike rides. Writing things down helps him stay organized but also helps to ensure that he never forgets any of the brilliant ideas that come to his head. Friant also advises people to send positive vibrations out into the world in order to receive them. One of the ways he does this is through giving, giving to his church is something that actually brings him happiness.

The success of The Original Habanero Shaker likely brings him a lot of joy as well. One of the things that makes the product unique is that it is composed of 100% habanero chile, unlike other shakers on the market. The habanero pepper is higher on the Scoville heat scale than the Jalapeno, and can bring a lot of dimension to any dish. The shakers are made in the United States of America and can be purchased on Amazon for around $12.
