Rufus Triplett, Jr., originally from Flint, Michigan, is a talented singer, songwriter and producer. He co-wrote, produced and toured for the platinum group Ready for the World in the late 80’s. He chose to broaden his horizons in the United States Marine Corps where he went to school for Culinary Arts. After relocating to Atlanta in the early 90’s, he found a love for computers and has become a technology geek. Not only can he build them from scratch but he has become the “go to” guy for all of his family members.

Jenny Triplett, originally from Saginaw, Michigan, always aspired for a career in media. Starting out as an intern at a radio station, she established a relationship with several entertainers and Ready for the World where she went on to head their marketing outreach team. Jenny also chose to explore the military where she earned an LMET (Leadership, Management, Education & Training) Certification, one of the highest certifications from the military, and gained a wealth of knowledge and experience during her time in the United States Navy

After marrying Rufus and relocating to Atlanta, she headed her own entertainment company for over 14 years. Their flourishing company was halted during the time Jenny dealt with a legal issue and a brief period of incarceration. The Triplett’s do not consider that a dark period in their lives because their marriage grew stronger and they bonded to the point where their relationship became unshakeable.

HUFF POST LIVE

"You guys are our favorite guests. The HuffPost family has great love for you all."

Now adding self-published co-authors and Amazon Best Sellers to their long list of accomplishments, Surviving Marriage In The 21st Century: 13 Easy Tips that Can Help You Get to 20 years and Beyond, released February 2013, is sparking the much needed conversation about marriage and that tips needed to survive the foundation and institution of the family that it has always been. Surviving Parenting in the 21st Century - Have You Seen My Innocence, released November 2015 is a hilarious recounting of the Triplett's journey in raising three boys and a playbook to help hurdle the challenges of being a mom and a dad.

Mr. & Mrs. Triplett have traveled extensively and seem to draw attention wherever they appear. With their young look and laid back personalities, they are never far from an intelligent conversation. Their creative talents have caused them to branch into television production via their YOUTUBE Channel. The combination of strong story writing and production skills of Jenny and equally as strong songwriting and production skills of Rufus could only be a match made in heaven. RufusandJennyTV offers humorous videos which is reflective of the Triplett's personalities. Season One of their TV Show, Lifestyles with Rufus and Jenny Triplett aired on Atlanta's AIBTV and is now available on Amazon. Season Two will be airing on Muslim Heat.

From their TLC Special to their Best Selling Book to their weekly radio show that draws a global listening audience, the Triplett's always find time to give back. Volunteering as Georgia Certified Prison Volunteers and mentors to various youth groups, their love for mentorship, entrepreneurship and self love & empowerment shines through and is creating a legacy for generations to come.

Anyone dealing with inmates has to have a tough demeanor. The Triplett’s like to take the non-judgmental and forgiveness approach with their work. Dealing with educating inmates and their families brings great satisfaction to the couple knowing they are a part of improving someone’s life. When asked the question what would make you start a magazine like this, the owners respond intelligently “We hope to bring new and different ideas to the multimedia game as well as enlighten views and perceptions of an uninformed and forgotten society.” Their constant drive and dedication to thwart mass incarceration was recognized by President Obama.
