Can TextNinja become the best app to stop texting and driving?

So what is the best app to stop texting and driving? The jury is still out. Watch as we compete on Bootstrapping in America’s XL competition for a $25,000 investment into our company. We’re competing against 9 other startups for a chance to win an investment from the TastyTrade network. We qualified for the competition, and now we get a two minute pitch, plus a Q&A Analysis session with Kristi Ross and Tom Sosnoff, both who admit that they need TextNinja!

TextNinja competes on TastyTrade and tries to convince them that they are the best app to stop texting and driving.

The Journey of a Long Road

Although the seatbelt was first invented in the mid 19th century, it wasn’t until the 1950’s that a lap belt became commonplace in automobiles, and it was even later when the shoulder strap was added. Finally in 1970, the world’s first seat belt law was put into place (in Australia).

Unfortunately it seems that the problem of distracted driving is taking a similarly long time to solve. Laws are falling into place and solutions have been invented, but it is not a problem that can be solved overnight. Over time, though, awareness is growing, and solutions like TextNinja are getting closer and closer to a widespread adoption that can change the social trends associated with texting and driving.

How to Stop Texting and Driving Teens

By: Jess Goodwin

A wise man (Henry David Thoreau) once said, “What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”  While this is true, it can be helpful (especially for young, habit-forming minds) to get something along the way to encourage a positive reaction to what they might become.  For instance, while becoming a safe driver is the ultimate goal, it might not seem that important or desirable to your teen.  But what if they’re getting paid to do it?!?

Value Statistics on Distracted Driving

by: Jim Ramirez

The statistics on distracted driving and the value of a good habit

This is part 1 of our deep dive to analyze the risk of driving distracted with a cell phone and understand how many distractions it takes to cause a crash. Part 2 uses the statistics on distracted driving to answer “What is the cost of driving distracted for each person and per distraction?”.  The hope is that by raising awareness about how relevant the risk and cost really are, people will be motivated to do something about it and start driving text-free.

The sad reality is that the odds are against us, and if you haven’t been directly affected by texting and driving yet, it’s likely you know someone who has. The statistics on distracted driving are clear, and with the number of incidents reported, there’s no need to wait for your own to be inspired to take action.

Condition Yourself to Be Your Own Hero

by: Guest Writer Nisha Mathur

Human Conditioning

Have you ever had a bad habit that you’ve conditioned yourself out of doing?

I recently lost my headphones for a month among the chaos of my home, and I stopped running because of it. Running is monotonous for me, so listening to music is the only way I bear it. I could only imagine the toil of running without headphones. Every second feels like 10, and every step is under a microscopic lens in my head. The sound of my foot against the pavement somehow gets louder as I get farther, nagging me to just give up. I lose things often, so I couldn’t justify buying another set right away. However, without headphones, I was practically paralyzed.
