Chapter 1737: A man falling in love…
He could understand the reason for his boss’ action.
Looking at the current situation, the Mu family could be considered the top elite in Asia. With a few hundred years of history, they could single-handedly support a large chunk of the eastern part of the world!
Globally, only a few conglomerates could stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the Mus.
Still, the man made up his mind to ditch that household and build his career because, for one, he was very ambitious. Even though the Mu Group had a long history, there was little room for growth by now with its many shackles.
The family continued to thrive due them dabbling in the political arena, and they could be said to be the powerhouse behind the local economy. However, this also meant that any move would directly lead to economic turbulences, so there were many constraints in place.
Two, there were too many intricacies involved in running a family business. Every action had to be planned carefully when the interests of many were at stake.
Hence, he very resolutely established his own Shengyu Financial Group from the networks and connections he had amassed through the Mu Group. After three rounds of financing, his empire had slowly gone on track.
By now, the momentum of it had become a force to be reckoned with.
This group had four big enterprises.
One of the businesses was called Easy Buy; it was an online shopping site he had set up seven years ago. No one bothered with the site when it was first set up. Having great foresight, he saw the potential in online shopping then and decisively invested in creating one such online platform, just in time to pioneer such an advanced enterprise. Easy Buy finally traded in Hong Kong stock market one year with great valuation.
Aside from this online shopping site, the man also hunted for many good bargains in other business sectors.
Including properties, holiday resorts, financial products, et cetera, the group had its hand on many untapped emerging industries which had great potential.
As his capable right-hand man, Lu Jinyu held the helm and took care of all affairs in Shengyu. Usually, he would settle any problems by himself and would not need to report everything to Mu Yazhe. His business acumen and ability were strong enough for him to hold his own.
Still, he would seek out the man’s opinion when it concerned serious or exceptionally challenging issues!
He recounted the recent problem, big and small, to his chief.
The man gave him some suggestions, and after some discussion, the two inadvertently came up with the same conclusion.
“My thoughts are the same as yours; I didn’t expect that!”
“You don’t need to seek my opinion on some matters. I trust you’ll handle them well. After all, you are handpicked by me for your capabilities.”
His confidante smiled. “Now that we’ve finished our discussion, how about going for a game?”
He was itching to test his skills against his boss as he looked at the pool table. It had been a while since he last played with him!
“I can’t!” The man stole a look at his watch. “It’s getting late; I have to go home!”
He frowned. “What? Why are you in a hurry today, or is it because you are rushing home to see your wife?”
“Eh!” The other smiled in admittance.
He seemed to have been mesmerized by that smile on the man’s face for a brief second.
Seeing the strange look on the former’s face, the latter raised a brow with a start. “What happened? You seem to be in deep thought from the look on your face!”
“Nothing much; it’s just that you seem to have changed!” commented his confidante truthfully.
“I’ve changed?” His interest was piqued. “In what way?”
“It’s a feeling that’s hard to explain!”
