Here at North Inc, we know the reason behind our continued success is our hardworking, resilient, and adaptable team. It is thanks to them that we continuously excel quarter after quarter. There have been a few individuals that have gone above and beyond the last year, and today, we are thrilled to shine the spotlight on one in particular – Corporate Trainer, Miquel Romera Marco! At just 23-years-old, Miquel has achieved so much and played a pivotal role in our business’s success throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We recently asked him a few questions to better understand his driven mindset and eager attitude!
Born and raised in Barcelona, Spain, Miquel has always been passionate about sports. As a child, he dreamt of becoming a pro skater like his idols Paul Rodriguez and Ryan Sheckler. As he aged, though, his interests turned to golf and tennis, and it was there that he learned the importance of having a strong work ethic, time management, and the power of a dedicated mindset. In time, he became solely dedicated to golf, which eventually led him to St. Louis on scholarship! While he loves the game, once competing in a few tournaments after graduation, he decided to pursue other passions while practicing his skills on the green on Sundays.
As not only an essential member of our team here at North Inc but as a husband to Alyssa and father to fur-children Luka and Posie, Miquel depends on the skills he learned throughout his sports days to push him to excel and grow day after day. When discussing his greatest accomplishment to date, he said that coming to the States on his own and learning a new language was at the top of his list. As you can see, his determined attitude has taken him far in his short life, and with his family backing him, his future is looking incredibly bright!
Miquel always knew that sales, marketing, and entrepreneurship were his strong suits. So, when deciding what to pursue a career in, the decision was pretty simple. On August 7th, 2019, he walked into his first day of work at North Inc and has been smashing his professional goals ever since. In this time, he says that he’s learned about how important sales are in general and, most importantly, how to coach and train others. He believes that to excel as a leader, you have to be open-minded, non-judgemental, and have high levels of awareness. While extremely rewarding, coaching is also incredibly challenging. When you work hard to train someone, and the results don’t match the expectations created, it can be disappointing. However, this has taught him how to work with different personality types and how to persevere.
As we’ve said, Miquel describes himself first and foremost as a family man. He is inspired daily by his wife and is motivated to work his hardest to make a better life for his family. While money plays a large role in this, he is mainly looking to gain control and freedom over his time; this is something that his father instilled in him. To Miquel, success is about choice and having the opportunity to make his own decisions instead of relying on others to do so for him.
To say that we are proud to have Miquel as a part of our team at North Inc would be an understatement. He was a key component in the obstacles we overcame throughout 2020 at the hand of the COVID-19 pandemic. The past twelve months were challenging, but with him pushing and encouraging us forward, we thrived! His intelligence, attitude, and eagerness for knowledge are next to none, and we can hardly wait to see what the future holds for this rising star.
