Irving, TX, April 08, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Kijana Martin, a Chicago native, now residing in Irving, Texas felt it important after growing up in the ghetto, to write a book giving teens/young adults a point of reference to sensitive subjects that are plaguing today’s youth. She candidly uses her life as an example to provide support, advice, and options to let teens/young adults know that they are not the only one to have a particular experience and no matter what, you can instantly change your life by making an educated choice.
With over 100 chapters, “Real Life, Real Choices,” a unique power-packed life reference book targets teens/young adults and parents, providing real life examples of the impact of the breakdown or lack of communication in families, parental presence, positive influences, and the “Baby’s Daddy, Baby’s Mama Syndrome,” how they can be avoided or changed, and how young adults can be raised to live safer, happier, waste less time on past hurts, and enter adulthood with the ability to make educated choices despite external influences beyond their control.
Both instructional and inspirational, “Real Life, Real Choices” is making an impact on adults and parents as well with timeless examples of life lessons. Many adults having stated they wished they’d had a book like this available when they were growing up. Some parents are being stimulated to converse with their children after reading “Real Life, Real Choices” in hopes of mending broken relationships or becoming better parents.
“Wonderful and insightful!”
I am generally not a self help book person, but when I read through this book in the, "take a peek at what's inside" of this book, I found myself wanting to read more. I purchased it and I'm glad I did. This book is full of advice and ways to be a better parent and also be a better person. The information and advice comes from real experiences from the author, which captivated me more. I learned some things about myself in ways that I could have been a better parent. I had to ask my daughter which is my first born, if there was anything I could have done differently that would have made her life more fulfilling through my communication with her. – L. King (comment from Amazon.com customer)

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
