BOTH WADDELL AND SITARZ ARE CEOS OF COMPANIES THAT REVOLVE AROUND EMPOWERMENT. “WHEN WE LINKED UP WE REALLY SAW THAT WE HAD THE SAME MISSION JUST DIFFERENT FORMS OF IT. SHE HAS THE MIND AND BODY, I HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY.””THE MIND AND BODY PART HAS TO DO WITH THAT MENTAL STRENGTH AND MENTAL PREPAREDNESS, WHICH IS 90 PERCENT OF SAFETY. SO THAT’S WHAT WE TRY TO DO IS WE TRY TO EMPOWER PEOPLE THROUGH PRESENTATIONS. WADDELL IS THE CEO OF TR SAFETY SOLUTIONS. A COMPANY THAT PROVIDES SAFETY AND FIREARM TRAINING.THE PHYSICAL PIECE OF COURSE WOULD BE SELF-DEFENSE AND LEARNING HOW TO USE YOUR BODY AND UTILIZE YOUR BODY AS A TOOL TO BE ABLE TO KEEP YOURSELF SAFE.” SITARZ IS THE HEAD OF CYBER INFORM, AND SHE’S GETTING READING TO LAUNCH HER SAFETY APP, BLUE BOX. “KIND OF THINK OF YELP FOR PUBLIC SAFETY. YOU CAN SEE BEFORE YOU GO PLACES – HOW SAFE DIFFERENT PLACES ARE. IT CAN TELL YOU IF YOU’RE IN A DANGER ZONE. SO MAYBE THIS PLACE OR THIS AREA IS MUCH MORE DANGEROUS THAN AN AREA FOUR BLOCKS UP. IT WILL TELL YOU THAT SO YOU ARE AT LEAST AWARE.”TOGETHER, THEY’RE HOPING TO MAKE LAFAYETTE A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE CAN BE SAFE AND FEEL SAFE EVERY DAY. ALEXIS MOBERGER. NEWS 18. @#
