During the Leadership Awards Gala at this year’s Ignition, Senior Director Onofre Rogel watched as team member after team member were called to the stage as Rising Star Finalists.
“I was a bit sad seeing all my friends up here, and I said what happened,’” he said. “When they said my name, I couldn’t believe it.”
Onofre said being named The Rising Star would not have been possible without his team’s hard work. The fact that much of his team was also honored at the Gala shows how Onofre is committed to building his business the right way and is a testament to what dedication and perseverance can bring everyone.
Before Stream, Onofre described his life as extremely difficult as he battled thousands of dollars in debt. He was introduced to Stream in 2017 but passed on the Opportunity at the time. But when Stream debuted in the Illinois market the following year, he decided to sign on to become an Associate.
In the first two months of working the business, he paid off all his debt – over $15,000 – and knew his life had changed. Now, he’s committed to helping others in his Hispanic community become successful.
“I realized that there’s a lot of the Hispanic community that’s begging for a dream,” he said. “Don’t give up on your dreams.”
