Alex had full confidence in this matter.
Furthermore, he had made up his mind to let Dou Tianyou learn his lesson, so he had no intention of letting go.
As for Dou Tianyou, he was also filled with anger. Once again, he stared straight at the key person—Alex.
A moment later, after a brief consideration, Dou Tianyou finally made up his mind. He nodded slightly at Alex and said, “Alex, I’m sorry, I was wrong… please buy the shares in my hands.”
Alex did not expect Dou Tianyou to give in so quickly. He was stunned for a moment before replying, “Tell me, what’s wrong with you?”
“I… I didn’t make it clear. I shouldn’t go against you.”
“Not bad, not bad. You know yourself well. You don’t need me to teach you how to perform when you see me in the future, do you?”
“Don’t worry. As long as you buy the shares in my hand, I promise I will never appear in front of you again.”
“That’s best! All right, sign it.”
Alex did not make things difficult for Dou Tianyou any longer. He signed the contract without hesitation. After sending Dou Tianyou away, there were only the four of them left in the conference room. They immediately started discussing how to distribute the shares that they had just purchased. They adopted a completely voluntary principle and soon reached an agreement.
In the final distribution plan of shares, Alex continued to be the final shareholder and held 51 percent of the shares. Lin Ke had prepared more funds, and he held 20% of the shares. At present, Fang Chen and Jordan didn’t have much remaining funds in their hands, so they only bought less and held 5% of the shares respectively.
As a result, Qingyun Media officially became the one hundred percent of the collective assets of the Four Childes of Quill City.
As the general manager, Lin Ke immediately held a meeting of all staff.
At present, the inside of Qingyun Media was in a mess. If they wanted to return to the right track, they had to work hard. Although the four shareholders were not ordinary people and had a wide network of contacts, it was impossible to run the big Qingyun Media with just the four of them. So the first thing to do was to stabilize the mood of the employees.
Lin Ke had been working in Hengkang Pharmaceutical Industry for six years before. He had been in the middle and high-level management for more than three years and had rich management resources. Although this was the first time that he had stepped into the management and media industry, many management resources were common in various industries. Now as the general manager, he only needed to manage people. Those very professional positions were handed over to the corresponding old employees.
Fang Chen and Jordan didn’t have as much work experience and management as Lin Ke did, but they had been working in the big enterprise of the family for a few years. They were usually idle, not because they were lazy, nor because they were playboys, but because the family’s industry was managed by their parents in an orderly manner, so they didn’t need to worry about it at all. Once they became serious, they still had the ability to work.
Many ordinary people had a false understanding of the rich second generation.
Even many people thought that the rich second generations were rich playboys who were ignorant, incompetent, and heartless. In fact, such people were only very few. Most of them had been strictly disciplined since they were young. Because of their good family conditions and money, no matter what they wanted to learn, they could get high-quality education and develop in many directions.
For example, Fang Chen and Jordan not only went to junior high school, high school, and university like children from ordinary families, but also cultivated piano, Taekwondo, and other hobbies. Of course, under the arrangement of their parents, it was undoubtedly that they learned the most in order to take over the family business in the future.
Lin Ke, in addition to these, had also been a soldier!
Compared with them, Alex was somewhat incompatible with them. He could not help them now, so they could only help them. In addition to leisure time, he called Bai Ling. Last night, he was planning to discuss the development of Qingyun Media with Bai Ling, but he was too happy because of the matter of Felix and forgot about it.
Bai Ling was very excited when she heard Alex’s suggestion and received an invitation. She agreed without thinking.
However, this matter could only be planned for now.
Alex thought that at the very least, he had to wait until Qingyun Media returned to the right track, and then he could confirm it…
In a flash, it was almost time to get off work. Lin Ke had been busy all day, and her mouth was almost smoking. She was physically and mentally exhausted, and she could finally rest for a while. Although she had rested, she still had to think about it. She called Alex, Fang Chen, and Jordan together and proposed to transfer a few management personnel suitable for Qingyun Media from the management of the family business.
Fang Chen and Jordan both agreed with her with both hands and immediately began to make a phone call.
Alex felt that he was a burden and was very embarrassed. But he suddenly thought that compared with Wyatt Corporation and Ryker Gardens Corporation, Gold Stone was the closest to Qingyun Media. So it was undoubtedly the most appropriate to transfer management staff from Gold Stone to help them manage Qingyun Media.
Alex immediately told this idea to Lin Ke and then called Isla to discuss it.
Although Gold Stone was now under the name of Isla, Isla still regarded herself as a professional manager and thought that Alex was the real boss. She also tried her best to support the business of Alex. Therefore, she did not hesitate at all and expressed that she was willing to maximize the help of Qingyun Media immediately.
Alex was very satisfied with Isla’s attitude. He told Lin Ke the situation and took this opportunity to tell her the idea of inviting Bai Ling to join Qingyun Media.
After hearing this, Lin Ke’s eyes suddenly lit up. “I know Bai Ling. She definitely has the potential to become a popular actress. It would be great if she could be signed in by our company. Cousin, when it comes to potential people, I also have one. You know him…”
“Oh?” Alex thought for a moment and replied, “Cousin, are you talking about Lin Aoran?”
“That’s right! Although he doesn’t come from a professional class, he has a wide range of hobbies. In addition to performing, dancing, musical instruments, and music, he has been trained for many years as a hobby and has a certain foundation. The most important thing is that now is the era of looking at his face, and he is born with a super beauty. As long as he is properly wrapped, there is a high chance of him becoming asuperstar.”
“I think we can give it a try. Among all the people I know, there are many people who look like stars. But there are only two people who are most suitable. One is Bai Ling, and the other is Lin Aoran. However, does Lin Aoran have such a plan? Have you communicated with him?”
“Yes, I did. But I just said it casually before, and no one took it seriously… I’ll call him tonight. The project of demolition is coming to an end, and his task is about to be completed.”
At this point, Alex subconsciously thought of his father, Francis.
Logically speaking, the project of land removal was about to be completed, so it was time for Francis to return to the city.
Alex walked to the corridor outside and dialed Francis’s number. After exchanging a few pleasantries, he cut to the chase. “Dad, the land at home has been settled. Why don’t you come back tomorrow?”
Francis on the other end of the line hesitated for a while and seemed to have made up his mind. Then he answered seriously, “Alex, I’ve thought about it for a long time. I know that you want me to live a happy life in the city. I understand your filial piety. But after thinking about it, I still want to live in the countryside.”
“No…” Alex panicked. “Dad, you’re the only one in the countryside. I’m worried.”
“I’m completely cured. I’m in good health now. I can take care of myself.”
“But the land at home has been conquered. What can you do in the village?”
“I heard from Lin Aoran that next step, Hengkang Pharmaceutical Company will build a factory here and start to grow herbs in a large area. It is said that all the projects will first hire locals. I am a farmer who has been planting land for a lifetime and is very experienced. I can work in the village.”
“Sigh… Dad, you’ve worked so hard for the rest of your life. Now you can finally enjoy yourself, but you insist on staying in the countryside. Why bother?”
“You know, I can’t be idle. If I play all day long, it will be easier for my body to have problems.”
Francis had made up his mind to stay in the countryside. Apart from having no free time, he also couldn’t bear to part with the villagers for decades. If he lived in the city without any acquaintances, Alex couldn’t stay at home all the time. He couldn’t find a person to talk to.
This was not only the idea of Francis, but also the thought of many old folks in the countryside.
Alex couldn’t refuse and could only agree.
However, no matter what, he would not let Francis continue to do physical work.
After hanging up the phone, Alex pondered for a moment and decided to arrange an easier job for Francis, such as the construction site supervisor…
After work, Fang Chen and Jordan hurried back to discuss the transfer of management staff with their families and left in a hurry.
Alex was about to go back and talk to Isla face to face when he suddenly received a call from Zou Wenze. He remembered that there was a dinner party today. He had made an appointment with Zou Wenze and hung up the phone. When he noticed that Lin Ke was still in the office, he stepped in and invited her to the banquet with him.
Lin Ke thought for a moment and agreed.
At half past six, Alex took Lin Ke to a restaurant and entered the reserved private room to meet Zou Wenze.
There were only the three of them in the banquet. It was very quiet.
After the greetings, the dishes and wine were served on the table and officially began to eat.
Zou Wenze drank a few glasses of wine and his face became ruddy. He changed his tone and inadvertently cut to the chase. “President Alex, although we just met and don’t know much about each other, I have already realized that you are an excellent young man on both sides. You can be said to be outstanding. As for me, I like to make friends and deal with excellent young people. Of course, if we can become partners, it will be even better…”
Hearing this, Alex guessed that Zou Wenze was looking for him to discuss cooperation. However, he was not in a hurry to point it out. He waved his hand and said, “I’m flattered. Director Zou, compared with you, I’m just a nobody in the business field. I’m relying on my friends’ help.”
“Mr. Alex, you are looking down on yourself. Let’s not talk about anything else. I admire your courage for taking down Qingyun Media with your huge capital. If it were someone of the same age as you, he wouldn’t necessarily have the courage. Even if he had the courage, it would not have the capital. You have the strength and courage, which is also the reason why I think you will achieve great things in the future. But…”
“Haha, I’ve already guessed that there will be a turning point. Director Zou, but what?”
“Now all walks of life are basically saturated and even excess, especially managing the media industry. With your strength, it’s not difficult for you to make money in this industry. But if you want to make a lot of money, it’s impossible to fight alone. It’s only possible if you cooperate with others.”
“Uh-huh, and then?”
“To tell you the truth, in addition to making friends with you, I also want to cooperate with you. Tianle Media is one of the top comprehensive management companies in the country. It has been developing for decades, is deeply rooted, and has a rapid momentum. We have a deep industry foundation and rich development experience. As for you, you just got a very good platform. If we cooperate, our future will be great.”
Working with Alex was the remedy plan that Zou Wenze came up with after the auction failed.
Alex’s guess was confirmed. He subconsciously looked at Lin Ke and said to Zou Wenze, “Director Zou, how do you want to cooperate?”
Zou Wenze said slowly, “What you need the most now is professional management. To put it bluntly, you need the one who makes money for you. And I can provide you with the best management rights in the country. But the premise is… you have to give me the rights to manage Qingyun Media and the management rights!”
