Conversations with the Inspiring Danica Badurina

Today we’d like to introduce you to Danica Badurina.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Danica. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I loved hosting and going to sleepovers as a child, so when I was thinking how I could help expand our rentals company ‘UNIK,’ the idea of offering slumber rentals for kids came to mind. I thought it was a great way to allow kids to have a camping experience in the comfort and safety of their homes while alleviating planning and set up for parents.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Because this is the second rental business I own, the road has definitely been smoother – something I am very grateful for. My experience opening UNIK Rentals 10 years ago with my husband, has allowed me to make better choices and have a clearer idea for my mission and vision with The Sleepover Co.

My advice for all the women starting their journey is to never stop working for what they really want and makes them happy. Also, don’t be afraid to reach out to other fellow women for help and advice. So many times we hesitate asking for support thinking we will not get any when in reality people love to contribute to each others growth.

What should we know about The Sleepover Co? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
The Sleepover Co was founded to provide a fun and unforgettable sleepover experience for kids and a hassle-free party planning for parents.

In a city where camping is only an option for a few weeks out of the year due to hot weather conditions, we offer a fantastic glamping experience within the comfort and safety of a home.

We rent a variety of individual tents, decorations, and personalized kits to style any child’s sleepover party. In addition, we offer a full delivery, set up, and style service to ensure everything is ready for the child and guests.

Great customer service, attention to detail, and unique style is what sets The Sleepover Co apart from others.

It would be great to hear about any apps, books, podcasts or other resources that you’ve used and would recommend to others.
‘Awaken the Giant Within” by Tony Robbins is definitely a classic for anybody looking to overcome fear and do what they are truly passionate about.

Reading about your industry is important if you want to grow – I am always looking for inspiration and party trends for kids online. I am also currently working on starting a monthly newsletter to share with my clients.

Meditating helps me stay grounded and above all reminds me to be thankful every day. Insight Timer helps me find the perfect meditation session I need to start my day or end it, or simply stop for a minute on a busy day to breath in and breath out.


  • Package for a sleepover of 4 starts at $250
  • Extra tents $50 each
