Cuban exile, businessman, philanthropist & author: Miguel "Mike" Benito Fernandez joins us

Mar 31, 2015

  Miguel “"Mike"” Benito Fernandez has made two long journeys in his life. The first came when he and his family were exiled from Cuba in 1964 with no warning and no money. They soon made New York City their home and faced a new path of challenges, opportunities and lessons. His second journey came in 2013 when Fernandez made the 508-mile pilgrimage along El Camino de Santiago from France through Spain to raise money for the Miami Children’'s Hospital. He tells his story in a new book, “Humbled by the Journey: Life Lessons for My Family and Yours.” Today, Fernandez is a successful businessman and philanthropist who believes in the power of giving back to others. He talks with us about his life’'s journeys.
