05/21/2013: Crowd Rules #2 - Debt
It takes money to make money. Three companies compete for a cash prize to help pay off the massive debt they've acquired in starting their businesses. Tonight's episode features: Mystery Brewing, a beer brewery that's a few kegs short of staying afloat; Sky Fitness, a small town gym trying to beef up their clientele; and DirtyGirl Disposal, a female owned and operated waste removal company trying to keep abreast of a predominately male industry. As they learn about each company, the crowd will vote to award one business the $50,000 they need to go from problems to profits. Guest Business Expert: Larry Winget.

About "Crowd Rules":

Each week, "Crowd Rules" features three small businesses that compete in front of an audience of 100 that votes to decide who wins a much-needed $50,000 prize. Entrepreneur and jewelry designer Kendra Scott, TV Newsman Pat Kiernan, along with a weekly guest industry expert, lead the examination of the small businesses in order to help a studio audience choose which company wins the $50,000. While the small business owners make their case to the panel of three, the real power lies in the hands of the audience – 97 strong – whose votes will ultimately decide which business is most deserving of the investment.
