Episode 62 of the Only In Miami Show began with a remembrance of Jackie Jimenez – who ran #WPMIA and was very involved in building the Miami social media community. Jackie passed away unexpectedly this past week at the age of 28.
This episode features an interview with Mike B. Fernandez, local entrepreneur who discussed his recent memoir, Humbled By the Journey, and his personal #OnlyInMiami story.
Mike arrived in the United States from Cuba in the early 70s as a penniless immigrant to a philanthropic business mogul. Since then he’s bought, built and/or sold 25 local companies, the most recent of which being the Navarro Pharmacy chain.
