Couplepreneurs Dr. CaSay and The Franchise Jay Claxton of The Franchise Group are making being a couple and being business partners look easy! Together, they lead a multitude of services, including a radio show, a lifestyle magazine, and a podcast to name just a few. Within these services is a variety of content, so there is something for every viewer, listener, or reader to enjoy. Franchise Magazine alone covers a range of topics from business to entertainment, tech to fashion, politics to sports, and more. 

On top of running their multitude of projects together, the couple also faces the challenges of workplace romance. With so much going on in their business life, it is easy to imagine that it can be overwhelming. But they make it work! The Franchise Jay Claxton says about Dr. CaSay, “She gives me the freedom to be me, and it is not intimidating. We both understand the other’s value and we encourage it.” To these couplepreneurs, working together is an act of mutual respect and trust. Not only is their working relationship a successful one, but it is also one of mutual care and support. Dr. CaSay told us, “I often tell people I am Jay’s rib, but he is my spine, we can not move without the other.”
