I have a new job here!”
One of the people here said, “Look at us, growing saffron! We have lots of money! And lots of family! We don’t need any help!”
“It’s not necessary that we should earn everything we have. You know how to make money for yourself. I should grow saffron and pay my salary?”
“No, that’s not necessary. I don’t like to do that, but I have to.”
“If it’s necessary to earn what you have, you should not have to worry about food here. If you want to earn a lot of money, why don’t you grow grapes?”
People had different ideas, but the majority followed the advice of the owner.
So, in the end, the saffron-growers found a way to make a living, even paying an official tax, and the owner didn’t need to do anything.

I am not sure what this means.
Why didn’t he quit?
It’s hard to know. I don’t have any idea when that happened.
A few years later, he started new business, the saffron-trades. You can find them on the website: www.saffron-traders.com. But this time it was a very different scenario: he had started a small business with just one employee, but he knew that it wasn’t good enough, nor would it work for the community he helped build.
The community that he helped?

But you know this, and you have seen his works… He built three very
