In four years Lauren Thom has taken Fleurty Girl from a bedroom in the front of her house on Oak Street to five stores citywide. 

John Blancher bought a run-down bowling alley to use as a catering hall. When he started booking bands, and drinkers and dancers also became bowlers, he'd accidentally created a phenomenon that he called Rock 'n' Bowl.

In the Pay It Forward segment of the show, host Peter Ricchiuti, Lauren, and John discuss Kelsey Forman's suddenly successful vegan soap biz, Cake Face Soaping.
