Chapter 314: A Startup Plan
“What are your thoughts?” Mother Yang looked at Yang Ming strangely, “Is there a business that is guaranteed to have no losses but gains?”
“Tofu! To do business, only tofu is the safest! If the tofu hardens, it will be dried beancurd; If the tofu is watery, it will be beancurd; If the tofu is thin, it will be dried bean sheet; If the tofu is ruined, it will be soy milk; If the tofu is smelly, it will be stinky tofu! If it isn’t sold out during the winter, it can be laid out. That’s the natural refrigerator. It will be frozen into frozen tofu. That will be a business with no loss but steady profit!” Yang Ming laughed.
“You child, spouting nonsense. Spending millions for a tofu business, you really can think of it!” Mother Yang naturally didn’t believe it. “If there is anything to say, don’t be poor.”
” Haha , I’m just making a joke to lighten the atmosphere!” Yang Ming said, “Mom, aren’t you laid off?”
“How did you know that I was laid off?” Mother Yang asked as she found it a little strange. As she finished asking, she didn’t forget to throw a gaze at Yang Dahai.
Yang Dahai shook his head as a signal that he didn’t say it.
“When you spoke to dad, your voice was so loud. I accidentally heard it.” Yang Ming replied perfunctorily, “Mom, have you been an accountant before?”
“Yes, when you went to kindergarten, mom was an accountant of a state-owned enterprise. Later, when the company was in a downfall, mom was laid off.” Mother Yang said.
“Mom, I want you to go to my company to help out. You can be my accountant and manage the money. As such, you don’t have to worry about losing money!” Yang Ming said.
“I help you? Can I?” Mother Yang said with some surprise, but she seemed delighted.
“Why not? You are an accountant. As we have you to be our accountant, it doesn’t interfere with our business management!” Yang Ming said.
“I see…” Mother Yang heart was a little more excited. At least I can monitor the cash flow if I am in the company. This would be a good way to contribute.
“No!” Yang Dahai suddenly said, “You can’t let your mother go!”
“Why?” Yang Ming and Mother Yang were both caught by surprise at the same time. Why did Yang Dahai suddenly speak out against it?
“Big Ming, this company was founded by you and Zhang Bing. Moreover, the funds came out from your godfather and Zhang Bing’s father. What are you thinking when you have your mother to manage the money?” Yang Dahai said earnestly, “What would people think when it happens? They may say that you practiced nepotism.”
“That’s right!” Mother Yang also nodded after listening, “Big Ming, indeed, I lacked consideration in this matter. In the company, whoever managed the money is equal to the person who grasped the lifeline. At that time, even if we weren’t greedy, I’m afraid that others will talk nonsense about it!”
“Dad! Mom! You think too much!” Yang Ming was a little dumbfounded, “My godfather said that the company will be given to me. He won’t take a cut on our profit!”
“Gave it to you?” Yang Dahai was surprised as he spoke, “Are you saying that your godfather gave you so much money?”
“Dad, my godfather is actually very famous in the jewelry industry. He isn’t short of money!” Yang Ming explained, “One of his works can easily sell dozens of millions of US dollars!”
After Yang Dahai and Mother Yang heard it, they looked at each other. Although they knew that Yang Ming’s godfather had high status, they didn’t expect him to be so capable! One of his works sold for hundreds of thousands USD! What concept is that? I can’t make such money by myself and my lover in a lifetime. Never mind hundreds of thousands of dollars, even if it were hundreds of thousands yuan, we couldn’t earn that!
“Big Ming, let’s do it this way. If you have time, please make an appointment with your godfather and godmother. Your mother and I want to meet them so that we can feel at ease. Otherwise, if he gives you so much money, we really feel uneasy!” Yang Dahai hesitated and said.
“That’s fine. We will delay talking about the accounting until then. Anyway, the company is still in the stage of preparation. Drawing a conclusion now is too early!” Yang Ming nodded and said, “My godfather and godmother are free at all times. Why don’t we go visit them after our meal?”
“We didn’t make an appointment in advance. Isn’t that bad?” Yang Dahai said with some concern, “Your godfather is also a man with status. Don’t they have any dinners they need to attend at night?”
“Dad, my godfather is insensible in that he isn’t interested in fame!” Yang Ming said with a smile, “If godfather liked to socialize, those who wanted to treat him for a meal might need to queue up until next year! He goes back home every night. Also, when I’m at the university, I tend to visit him often!”
“I see. That’s fine. Then, let’s go visit them!” Yang Dahai nodded and said, “Do we have to buy some gifts?”
“There’s no need for it. My godfather has a lot of gifts at home!” Yang Ming quickly shook his head and said, “We are a family. You don’t have to be so polite. Just buy a few pounds of fruit later!”
“This child!” Yang Dahai shook his head with a smile, but he still added on, “Let’s follow what you said!” Yang Dahai also knew that Yang Ming was more familiar with them than him. Also, his son had grown up. He would know the ways of these people better than himself. So whatever he said, he must have logic behind it.
The meal was served. The family talked about the things in Yang Ming’s university. When they talked about it, the topic moved to Yang Ming’s marriage.
“Big Ming, when are you bringing Chen Mengyan home?” Mother Yang said with a smile.
“Mom… Let’s not be anxious about that. The things between us are still undecided…” Yang Ming was a bit shameful. It seemed that things between him and Chen Mengyan need to be hurried. Her mother already acknowledged Chen Mengyan.
“Why aren’t you anxious? Let me tell you, Big Ming. Chen Mengyan, that child, I have acknowledged her to be my daughter-in-law. I won’t recognize the others!” Mother Yang continued, “The competition is so fierce now. The proportion of men and women in the university is out of balance!”
“Oh yeah, Yang Ming is in a science and engineering university. It isn’t a teacher-training school or an art school. There’s not enough to satisfy everyone. You don’t want others to take the lead!” Yang Dahai also added on.
“…” Yang Ming was speechless. However, what his parents said was also true. The people who had intentions on Chen Mengyan in the university were said to be a scary number! So, Yang Ming said, “Okay, mom, I know. I will strive for it.”
“Strive? Nope, if I didn’t urge you, you won’t even bother!” Mother Yang shook her head and said, “Let’s do it. I will give you a military order. When would it be? There must be a time limit!”
“Even a time limit!” Yang Ming smiled as he shook his head and said, “I’ll try my best, mom. How can such a thing be forced?”
“What do you mean by forced? As I see it, Chen Mengyan, that girl, is also interested in you!” Mother Yang said, “Based on the phone call during high school, I knew it! How about this? For New Year, you will bring Chen Mengyan back home! From now onward, there are still three months. There should be no problem, right?”
“This…” Yang Ming had to nod and say, “Okay!”
“Alright, it’s a promise. I’m preparing a red envelope  this year!” Mother Yang said.
“Alright, mom. Let’s start digging in. The dishes are getting cold!” Yang Ming thought, It depends on the situation! If I really can’t, I will just say that Chen Mengyan is having her New Year overseas!
After the meal, Yang Ming got the waiter to settle the bill. Then, he took out three thousand yuan, which he just withdrew from the automated teller machine.
“Dad and mom, here’s three thousand yuan. You and mom can use it first.” After taking care of the bill, Yang Ming gave the money to his mother.
“Big Ming, what are you doing? Your dad and I have money!” Mother Yang said quickly.
“Mom, I have money too. I made ten thousand yuan last month.” Yang Ming said with a smile.
“Big Ming, you are now in the startup stage. You are in the period of time when you needed money most. Your mother and I have some money!” Yang Dahai also added.
“Dad, Mom, you use it. The startup wasn’t spending money from my pocket. Both of them are different things. There are separate accounts for it. If I took money out of my own pocket, Zhang Bing won’t agree with it!” Yang Ming said.
“Alright! Then I will take it.” Mother Yang nodded. She also knew that Yang Ming was filial to her, so she stopped saying anything.
The family came out of the restaurant. At the entrance to the bone sauce place, there were numerous taxis which stopped there. They hailed a taxi and went straight to Song Jiang’s Industry University.
The taxi arrived at the entrance of the residential area. Yang Ming showed his own pass, and the security guard at the gate of the residential area allowed them to enter.
Yang Ming pressed the doorbell of Liu Weishan’s house. He didn’t expect the door to be opened by Xiao Qing. Xiao Qing saw Yang Ming’s parents behind him. She couldn’t help but look at Yang Ming in shock.
“Sister Xiao Qing, these are my parents…” Yang Ming said with a smile.
” Ah ?” Xiao Qing’s face immediately turned red. Is this considered meeting the parents? As she thought of the relationship with Yang Ming, Xiao Qing was a little embarrassed.
“Uncle, aunty, hi…” Xiao Qing tried to make herself seemed normal, then she greeted them.
” Oh ? You are Yang Ming’s godsister, Xiao Qing?” Mother Yang said with a smile, “You look quite pretty and charming!”
“Really?” Xiao Qing was a little happy after listening to it. Although things between her and Yang Ming couldn’t be exposed, getting the affirmation from her lover’s mother was also a very happy thing. “Auntie is pretty as well!”
