I met Coryn through Teamedge as we were both one of the original Edge girls. We both competed in the NPC Bikini category. I was drawn to her personality, her passion for fitness, and her kindness. She had this positive energy in her that I loved. Later her love story really inspired me and showed me it’s possible to find love in a short amount of time.

What is your love language? Give an example of how your partner expresses that to you.
Jason: Physical touch and words of affirmation. My wife is very affectionate, she constantly kisses me, caresses me, and she is always encouraging me and prays for me
Coryn: Words of affirmation and acts of service. My Husband is extremely helpful around the house, he cooks, cleans, washes dishes, does laundry, etc. He regularly makes my breakfast and packs my meals when I’m running late. (Which is a lot of the time, lol.) I’ve never felt like I’m on my own and all the housework is on me. Oh, and he carries my stuff around too. He is great at encouraging me and telling me how grateful he is to have me, and he prays for me.

Since you guys are expecting a little Epps, do you anticipate any change in the business?
Absolutely, it will be a very special season with our first-born. Trusting that God will give us wisdom to balance everything, but family comes first. We’ll continue doing ministry always and excited for our little one to grow up loving people and Jesus also.
Will there be any change in how you divide the work in the businesses after the baby is born? How will you divide the responsibilities at home?
Knowing my amazing husband, he will be a huge help in making my life easier so I can tend to our little one, and also helping me around the house. But of course we can trade off with the baby and divide most things making it smooth on us both. Also, thanks to the time we’ve invested in others and building relationships we now have a village of friends and family that can’t wait to help us with baby Epps.
What advice would you give to other couples that want to start a business together?
Make sure that it’s not just your passion that lines up, but that your motives for starting and sustaining your business are in line. Starting a business is always exciting, its how well you work through your differences and the trials in life that will determine whether you have long-term success. Get your financial priorities in line too—being on the same page with this is also key!
