Whitney Wolfe Wants Women To Feel Empowered In The Dating World And The Business World

Whitney Wolfe Herd recently revealed that she is taking on more than women empowerment in dating. She wants to help women advocate for themselves in their careers as well. She discusses this in her Refinery29 article “Whitney Wolfe Herd: How to Build a Workplace Where Women Can Thrive”.

The article reveals that the CEO and founder of Bumble started the company after seeing the discrepancy in gender roles in the dating world. She wanted to create place where it was safe for women to make the first move. On Bumble, if the woman doesn’t make the first move, the connection is lost. She is also expanding the company to help women feel empowered in business and friendship through the new verticals, Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz. Bumble BFF allows potential friends to connect and Bumble Bizz helps women network with other like-minded people in the area.

Whitney Wolfe also wanted to create a culture inside the company that reflected this. She wanted to build a place where women were comfortable talking about salary and about career growth. When she first began the company, she only had three employees. All three were young women out of college, with little experience in the business world but plenty of gumption to make up for it. They used grassroots marketing strategies like using Wolfe’s dog dressed up in a bumblebee costume to gain attention on college campus. Since then, the company has grown into a billion-dollar business with 80 employees in five different countries.

As the business was growing, she noticed men were more likely to talk about a higher starting salary. She wanted to help women get to a place where they felt empowered speaking about it as well. The women would often feel guilty about asking for more, either during the starting salary discussion of the pay bumps. She created a place for women to discuss it when she made it a requirement in the semi-annual reviews. Whitney Wolfe believes the discrepancy is due to a confidence gap. In the current business culture, women were raised to believe it was impolite to discuss salary or to negotiate for higher wages. She also creates a place for her employees to have an honest discussion with their boss.

Joel Friant’s inspiration behind the Original Habanero Shaker

The Original Habanero Shaker is a popular food topping developed by entrepreneur and businessman Joel Friant.

Joel currently works to teach others how to become successful in business. He has spent years studying successful people and unsuccessful people, and figuring out what they do right and what mistakes they make. Using this data Joel developed web seminars and wrote articles. People quickly noticed Joel’s methods, like the Income Thermostat, were helpful in running businesses and finding success.

Before he was a success teacher, Joel worked both in real estate and as a restaurant owner. Joel was a real estate agent both before and after the opening of his restaurant. At one time he was the top salesman in his office, prompting him to start a new office that provided real estate mortgage loans.

Joel also opened a Thai inspired fast food restaurant. No other restaurant of its type had existed in the United States before and it became a big hit. It was in this restaurant that Joel had the idea for the Original Habanero Shaker. He tested different ways to flake dried habaneros and developed the method currently used.

The Original Habanero Shaker captures the spice and the flavor of the habanero pepper while at the same time being accessible and easy to use in any recipe. The product flew off the shelves of the Washington state grocery stores where it was originally stocked.

Joel continues to expand the brand of the Original Habanero Shaker while also learning and teaching about cryptocurrencies. He hopes that new business will be able to use cryptocurrency to become successful.
