Every Cloud has a Silver Lining. The proverb conveys the message that one has to stay positive at all times and never lose hope at any cost. A huge black cloud generally blocks the sun fight and makes the atmosphere appear dull and dark.
The fact is that it never was. Gold was worth more than silver then, now and will be in the future. The proverb is used to encourage a person who is facing great difficulties and is unable to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
It can also be used to describe bad experiences which turn out to be blessings in disguise; seemingly desperate situations that turn out to be great results in the end. This article is about the latter. By the way, I like to add the word "dark" to this proverb, to read, "Every dark cloud has a silver lining".

Whichever way we choose to express it, the meaning is very clear. No matter how hopeless or desperate or difficult or challenging, a situation is, it will definitely lead to even better days to come.

Coming back to my story; this entrepreneur was in deep trouble cameand the bicycle business gradually lost steam, and by the 70s, no one operated a bicycle shop. Of course, the best and normal option was to sell the newly substituted product, the motor-cycles.
So, most of the bicycle shops were converted into motor-cycle shops. Some simply folded up and went into oblivion, being unable to re-invent and adapt to change. The story did not follow that trend for this entrepreneur.
He closed his almost empty bicycle shop and contemplated…. Fortunately, this entrepreneur had up his sleeve, a secret product which he had faith in.
This product was a traditional herbal ointment made from natural herbal ingredients. The recipe was a closely guarded secret passed down from his ancestors in China. Initially, he started marketing his herbal ointment by employing salesgirls on a house-to-house promotion, traversing the remote villages of the whole country.
That was his niche market. He brought his product to the target customers in those remote villages where there was no competition. I knew this entrepreneur intimately because he was my father.
