It’s something that matters more than money, success, and even retirement.

It’s investment in people.

This is the truth that David Salyers. Chick-Fil-A marketing executive and author of Remarkable, has learned in his career at Chick-Fil-A, which began four hours after his college graduation and has been more than he could have imagined.

I recently had the privilege of chatting with him about why he chose a career at Chick-Fil-A, even though it offered him 75% less salary than the other opportunities he had upon graduation.

Rather than trying to retire as fast as he could, David chose to pursue work he wouldn’t want to retire from--work he wouldn’t want to quit at the first opportunity.

“If you love what you do, you'll never work another day in your life,” he said. “And so I feel like I've spent my whole life not working a day because I've loved what I've done, who I did it with, and the mission we were on.”
