Although Wen Xinya had heard about Xiao Chengyu, she had never seen him before in her previous lifetime, during which the Xiao Family got embroiled in a monetary and wealth struggle after Chu Jingnan returned to the Xiao Family. Xiao Chengyu then died in a car accident.
Xiao Chengyu enjoyed a good reputation in the circle and, just like Xiao Zhiyuan, he was not a simple person. However, she was rather disappointed by his behavior this time.
Although she had intervened to deal with Chu Jingnan and ruined his plan this time, she was certain that he would definitely make a comeback. As the saying goes: the rival of your enemy is your friend. She was sure that Xiao Chengyu would not be able to tolerate Chu Jingnan’s presence after finding out the truth. Given how outstanding Xiao Chengyu was, he would definitely be able to control Chu Jingnan.
It was not that she could not tolerate the Xiao Family’s presence. In fact, she did not have a strong feud with them. However, she merely decided to deal with them because they had repeatedly challenged the Wen Family. She did not drive the Xiao Family into a corner and subjected them to extreme circumstances. After all, the scandal could give them a greater blow if she were to exaggerate matters and put in effort into blowing things up.
“Xinya, what’s wrong?” Yan Shaoqing asked worriedly, noticing that she seemed distracted.
Wen Xinya raised her head and shook it frantically. “Nothing, I just thought about some stuff.”
There was no point in her showing too much concern about the Xiao Family’s matters. She wouldn’t have the time to deal with him. She was not afraid of him now, neither would she in the future.
Of course, it was not up to her to intervene even if Xiao Chengyu didn’t become competent enough. She believed that Old Mr. Xiao and Xiao Zhiyuan ought to shift their focus elsewhere. They ought to feel anxious because Xiao Chengyu had embarrassed himself in front of everyone else.
Yan Shaoqing said, “Regarding the matter about investing in the overseas student association, I’ve already reached a consensus with several students and we’ll be registering a proper organization soon. We’ll be in charge of the funds while they set us as their first career choice after graduating.”
Nowadays, there were tons of undergraduates, and even those who had studied abroad faced difficulty in finding an ideal job. As a result, the elites of the nation had been lowering their standards and requests in order to secure a job for themselves. However, they often ended up failing.
Hence, those students quickly agreed to his requests even though they were a little hesitant at the start. After all, they would be able to complete their education successfully with the financial help that they were getting. Moreover, they would be guaranteed a stable job once they returned to the nation. There was no harm to them at all.
Wen Xinya smiled and said, “I didn’t expect it to proceed so smoothly! Once we solve the issue of the lack of manpower, we’ll be able to execute our plan well in the future.”
Manpower was their capital.
Yan Shaoqing smiled and said, “This is a contract that Qiu Yifan and I have drafted after some discussion. Take a look and see if there need to be any amendments.”
Wen Xinya grabbed the contract and flipped through the pages carefully. Soon, she finished perusing the thick contract and closed it. “There are no issues with the contract. Just execute according to plan.”
She could trust Yan Shaoqing to handle the company’s matters. Although he paled in comparison to the conscientious and experienced Secretary Cao, she believed that he could surpass Secretary Cao with a few more years of experience.
Yan Shaoqing put the contract away and said, “The procedures for that plot of land belonging to the Xia Family have already been settled. There won’t be any more problems.”
Wen Xinya clapped her hands and burst into laughter. “Brother Yan, the most important element of the expansion of my business has now been settled. We ought to work towards executing the plan now.”
Ever since she returned to the Wen Family, she had been accumulating her capital and doing her best to improve herself. At the same time, she had also been maximizing her wealth, connections and manpower while working towards the expansion of her businesses, including Lanxin Cosmetics, the health supplement brand, and… her future real estate company.
Upon hearing her words, Yan Shaoqing said confidently, “We’ve got everything prepared. We’re only lacking one crucial element.”
He still remembered how he had been discriminated against because of his hideous looks, as well as the dog days of his life where he hid in a small, dark and damp house in order to make ends meet. Back then, he had never thought that he would ever be working a job he truly enjoyed, dressed in an immaculate suit and tie, with a bright future ahead of him. It had never occurred to him that he would slowly step on the path towards achieving his dreams.
Everything was given to him by Wen Xinya.
Hence, he constantly reminded himself not to forget his morals.
Ever since he met Wen Xinya, he knew that she was an ambitious and farsighted person. After three years, she indeed did not disappoint him. She had made every move and decision with confidence and resoluteness. That gave him more faith in her and more reason for him to take her lead.
Wen Xinya said, “Brother Yan, I shall bring in the crucial element now. That plot of land has been partially developed because of their initial plan to build the new mall. It would be a pity if we were to carry out a reconstruction. Why don’t we just build a commercial tower there? We’ll make it the home ground for Lanxin Group.”
The most important bit of expanding Lanxin Company now was the building of the tower. Once construction was completed, all of her plans would begin to be executed and her company would come to fruition.
“Don’t worry, leave this to me!” Yan Shaoqing had the same ideas as her, and the government was already developing the new subway line. They reckoned that the operations of the new train route would begin next year and by then, the developments in the Western district would also begin. It would gradually become an opulent business hub and the optimal location for Lanxin.
After some thought, Wen Xinya said, “Let’s hire the same batch of construction workers!”
Currently, the Xia Family had only paid half of the overdue wages and the affected workers had yet to find a better job because of the sudden unemployment. Since they did not have any money, they had no choice but to roam around the streets in the city.
Yan Shaoqing had no objections.
After some thought, Wen Xinya said, “Communicate with those overseas graduates. I want them to come up with an elite team to aid Li Mengjie in the sales of Lanxin Cosmetics. I don’t want Lanxin Cosmetics to affect the development of the health supplements brand.”
Li Mengjie was currently taking over the management of the Lanxin Cosmetics sales singlehandedly and, like what she said, the expansion was indeed urgent and they could not afford to drag it on any longer. Yan Shaoqing was already busy enough with work, it would not be suitable for him to participate in managing Lanxin Cosmetics.
Yan Shaoqing said, “Alright. I’ll communicate with them. There shouldn’t be any major problems.”
Those undergraduates definitely had a wide network of connections.
