Chapter 456: Hiring a Personal Lawyer (Part One)
After leaving, Xu Cheng called his apprentice Lin Dong, “Dong, go and find a financial lawyer for us. I will personally interview them. In the future, we will let him take care of everything that involves investments and financial management.”
Lin Dong: “Okay, I will go to the headhunter tomorrow and find some candidates for you to interview.
– Next day –
Following Xu Cheng’s requirements, the headhunting company immediately gathered a lot of fitting legal and financial talents.
Xu Cheng looked through the profiles that the headhunter gave, and at last, he finally decided to meet with a financial planner that had changed five employers in the past.
His name was Stenson.
A guy that was fired five times by five different employers.
The guy had wavy hair and looked shabby, not even his beard was shaved. He acted quite casual as well.
After looking at his profile, Xu Cheng asked him, “Shouldn’t you have at least dressed formally coming to an interview? Aren’t you afraid of not being hired?”
Stenson pursed his lips and said, “I’m used to it. In the past, I was very formal and acted more professionally than everyone else. But, it seems like I became a bit infamous in this circle, so no one seems to want to hire me anymore.”
Xu Cheng smiled. “Can you tell me about how you got fired by your last five bosses?”
“Can I not?” Stenson said awkwardly, “The people that were interviewing me the past few times all asked me this, and in the end, I didn’t get hired by any of them.”
“I want to know,” Xu Cheng said.
“Fine.” Stenson said indifferently, “I’m the type of person that treats money above all else; otherwise, I wouldn’t have gone to study finance and wealth management. It might have something to do with how I was born in the slums, I’ve loved money since I can remember, and that made my decisions a bit lacking in humanity in many cases! In serious cases, some of my decisions would cause my employer to take on some bad reputation, and during one of the most serious times, for my client’s interest, I hurt some minorities, so I was cast aside. Over the years, I did receive the punishment I deserved, as my reputation in this circle really can’t fall any further. But from a professional standpoint, I wasn’t wrong. Because, no matter how powerful the law is, in the face of morality’s bottom line, it is still powerless. I just became the sacrifice, that’s all.”
Xu Cheng nodded. “If I can ask you, do you have something you believe in?”
Stenson: “Such as?”
Xu Cheng: “Such as do you love this country? The M Nation?”
Stenson smiled. “Did the country care about the slums? I can proudly say that right now, although I have enough food and clothes today, the country didn’t contribute anything. And the M Nation disgusts me because its frequent wars with other countries made people like me orphans! If you must have me name a faith, I only believe in money! That’s my faith.”
Xu Cheng nodded, finding this guy very interesting.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“According to your resume, you have at least two blank years, it seems like no one wanted to hire you during that period. So, over that period of time, how did you manage to get through it without an income?” Xu Cheng asked.(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“Leeching off of my woman.” Stenson wasn’t embarrassed at all when he said that. “In the whole world’s eyes, I’m scum, but in my woman’s eyes, I’m someone very special. Sometimes, being able to have a woman take care of you is also a type of ability. I am able to use my mouth to get myself a very stable home that feeds me and let me take shelter, I feel very proud of it.”(read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
