Publisher's Summary

Secular and spiritual success are not opposites. To have one, you need the other.

You can be wildly successful without losing your faith. In fact your secular success will strengthen your faith if you allow it. Too often we believe that success in secular environments contradicts the core principles of faith, but the opposite is true: Your faith was designed to thrive in the secular world and to transform it as a result. You may never experience the true fulfillment you were created for until you pursue the secular ambitions in your heart.

New York Times best-selling author DeVon Franklin knows this to be true. In The Hollywood Commandments, the prominent Hollywood producer and spiritual success coach reveals 10 life-changing lessons picked up from his over-20-year career in the entertainment business. You won't learn these lessons in the church, yet they will help you achieve an amazing life and thriving career that glorifies God. The Hollywood Commandments will help you:

  • Identify how to use what makes you unique to propel your career.
  • Overcome fear and build the courage to pursue new opportunities waiting for you.
  • Gain the confidence to make important life decisions with greater peace and clarity.
  • Negotiate the life and career advancement you deserve.

No, you don't have to work in Hollywood for this audiobook to work for you; these "commandments" apply to every walk of life! If you are stuck, looking for the secrets to advance your career, or have a feeling there's more to life, this audiobook is for you.

A good listen!!!

So glad DeVon read his own book! Authors at this level should always read their own book because it’s a gift to get the information directly from the ‘source’! I completed this audiobook in less than 24 hours because when I started I didn’t want to stop! I hope DeVon publishes more books related to success in life and work. I like the real examples like his wife and Foxy Brown.

It was exactly what I needed

I was losing hope for my dream. Discouraged and hopeless, I asked God why I was feeling the way I did about my career. I was feeling extremely lost and on the verge of giving up. & the next day I encountered this book. It was exactly what I needed. Devon did an amazing job at explaining and encouraging the guidelines of what it takes to pursue your dream with God. The way I was feeling was exactly what he felt in the past. It was encouraging to know I wasn't the only one going through this struggle.

Can I Give This Book Six Stars?!

Devon Franklin really outdid himself this time! Often times books give you theory with no application but The Hollywood Commandments gives your both AND scripture which makes this book a real triple threat.

I expected this book to be good because I know Devon and have seen him speak often. However, he surpassed my expectations because I had NO IDEA that he would light a FIRE so deep inside of me to take my career and God-given calling to the next level. The pain, process and passion he wrote about will connect with anyone who has talent but gets stressed with delayed results.

This is a must read but be beware! You will feel something in your belly and soul that you should and can be doing more with your dreams. You simply will be unable to accept living beneath your dreams moving forward. "You are the talent so behave like it." Dr. Alduan Tartt

Truth. Wisdom. Real talk.

The heart of this book sounds like conversations between my friends and I. This is definitely "fuel for the journey". It's another clear reminder for me to follow and cooperate with God while I watch Him exceed my expectations. Thanks Devon!

This book will change your life!

What can I say? This book is truly life affirming and has so much wisdom. I loved reading it but hearing it as an audiobook made it sink in even more.

DeVon’s narration is the right balance of kindness and firmness. He will make you think and hold you accountable for your career choices.

It’s amazing to see someone who didn’t compromise on their belief and has turned it into the focal point of their career.

Bravo!

MIRROR.KLEENEX.BAND AID

The way this book helped change my perspective. Thank you Devon for opening my mind! This book has been a God send to me at this point in my life. Sometimes life takes over and slowly but surely faith takes a back seat to it all. I love how this book reminded me to believe in myself and in God. My mind wondered with so much fear and anxiety that my faith was fading.

I like how Devon encourages you to pray and be spiritual but he also encourages action! Get out there and do something about your dreams. The reality of it is, it won't be easy, you will face many challenges and set backs but it will all be worth it in the end.

Nothing is worth your soul!

I will be taking these 3 tools away from the book! Mirror. Kleenex. Band Aid :)

Thank you Devon!! God Bless You!!

exactly what I needed at this stage of my life.

I have been frustrated with my current job facing bullying and other negative struggles, yet lost not knowing what what I want to do about it or where to go next. I listened to this on the way to and from work daily and felt like it equipped me with how to approach the day and debriefed me at the end of the day. this is a book that I feel that I can recommend even to non believers.
I feel like God heard my frustrations and sent guidance with this book. would highly recommend.

Lights On

I absolutely loved this book. it is an excellent guide to being who you are called by God to be.
I found it inspiring and motivating and I now have more determination and faith to keep going and to
become the best that I can be. I'm excited now that the lights are on in me to see where God will take me.
I had never heard of DeVon Franklin because I'm not really into movies but now he is one of my favourite authors
and a name I will never forget. Devon Thank you

Amazing

I love the perspective put on things and the relation to scripture... I have applied things and it has worked. This is a true representation of the working world and not how to be a CEO tomorrow as if it’s magic
