Today is a really special day for every one in One Dream Team because one of its founders, Christian Steinkeller, is celebrating his birthday.
Because of this, we have decided to dedicate the Outstanding Leader section to celebrate the anniversary of his birth with an article about his trajectory.
He was born on a day just like this in a little village in the Alps, a tiny paradise of tranquility but where there was little to work on if one had greater dreams. Little did Christian know what fate would bring him and how much he would outgrow his lovely snowy village when, driven by a new sense of curiosity, he signed up along with his brother Aaron for a Network Marketing opportunity in 1999.
Growing eagerness, curiosity and ambition were the only things he had in his journeys along the bordering villages of Germany, Switzerland and Italy where he travelled to fulfil this opportunity and find success.
Both Christian and his brother were totally inexperienced in this field. They were young and eager for success and freedom but highly unskilled and had very limited resources. Nevertheless, this ambition was more than enough to take them far, so far as to decide to abandon their village and take their chances in the Dominican Republic where the Network Marketing company where he had got started was also working.
Despite not attaining great achievements during the first years, progress gradually built up, because it was during those years when Christian learnt, trained, studied and developed personally and professionally. His next decision was to change companies and work with his two brothers. Not only did they start the team that we now know as the One Dream Team, but they also achieved a great success, that took Christian and his brothers to take a great leap forward, a great risk but also a great decision that would change everything.
They started their own Network Marketing company. And it didn’t work out. It was a very young company but it had a great potential which could not face a great adversity, a malicious attack that shook the very foundations of the newly built house. And although they tried by every means possible to fix it and continue, to persist… the damage was too great. They had to close it down, but this was an experience that most business people face every day, to try, to fail and to learn.
From this brief adventure the Steinkeller brothers rose stronger and wiser and a greater team, a team that is now a great family.
Christian Steinkeller, his brothers and many other members of this family found a new home in a project called OneCoin and the rest is history, our history.
¡Happy birthday, Christian! And many thanks for bringing this family together.
