DeVon Franklin is the Senior Vice President for Columbia Tristar Pictures. He is one of the youngest to ever be in that position. He has overseen countless movies such as the remake of Sparkle, The Karate Kid, and also Hancock and The Pursuit of Happiness. Franklin is also a preacher and a motivational speaker but he most commonly known as actress Meagan Good’s husband. His life hinges on his faith. He has been a featured guest on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday.
Franklin was speaking on a “Life Class” on OWN and he mentioned that he almost missed out on true love because he had a rule that he would never date an actress. He was very adamant about that rule…until he met Deception actress, Meagan Good.
After saying this he said that his advice to singles is not to limit themselves and limit their possibilities when it comes to finding love. If you find someone that is perfect for you but they don’t fit your exact “dating material mold”, don’t discount them as someone that you should be with. You could miss out on a great thing in life if you push away anyone who does not meet your exact criteria.
Meagan had also said that she was never interested in dating a minister, yet she found something in Franklin that she couldn’t let go of. Franklin says that the fastest way to make something happen for you in life is to say that you will never do it. Once you put this out in the world it is almost like the universe wants to test you to see if that is really true. He said that he wishes that everyone would or could understood patience and that if you wait, good things will happen for you.
