Daring to be Catholic in Today's Business WorldInvest Yourself is the story of one man's quest to live his faith boldly and authentically in the workplace. A real estate investor, Co-Founder and President of Possibility Productions, and the owner of multiple McDonald's franchises for over twenty-five years, author John Abbate has had his share of difficult experiences. As his personal faith grew, he began to think differently about how he could be a more effective leader. He began putting the needs of his employees first, using his resources to assist them with their hardships, and inspiring them to strive for excellence. Along the way he discovered that business success and a deep Catholic faith aren't mutually exclusive, but instead together form the basis of a life that is rich in what matters.
