SJ Grundon was working summer jobs to help pay for skiing. She wanted to figure out a way to make some extra ski money during the ski season. She brainstormed and with the help of her parents she came up with the idea of ski tuning.
SJ was talking to her friend Clayton on the phone while he was at camp and she somehow got on the topic about how she was going to start a ski tuning business to help pay for the expense of skiing. Clayton said he had lots of the equipment needed to tune skis... and so they joined together to try to start the business.
Clayton came up with the name for the ski tuning business in the Bristol Bakery... Wax Junkies.
SJ made the logo and worked with Holly Grundon to help fix it to make it look more professional and clean.
Clayton and SJ attended a small business workshop. They learned about how to start their business, and learned a lot about how to write a business plan.
Wax Junkies Created a Facebook Page.

Henry came over while Clayton and SJ were tuning skis and he took many picture for them to post to their Facebook Page.
Clayton decided to leave Wax Junkies to work on other projects. The partners talked about the details and worked out the little problems to make it all work.
Wax Junkies website was launched and email account was created...firstname.lastname@example.org

SJ meet with a lawyer to discus the details of a contract so Wax Junkies wouldn't be liable if someone was injured.
