why i left my past to build a better future with child's play challenge courses

I never thought I would own my own business. I spent the majority of my life working for other people and I thought that was the only way for my family to have security and a steady paycheck. I was passionate about my career in television and the performing arts, working for over 30 years as a stage manager, production manager, operations manager, and event manager. I was well respected within the industry and I was damn good at what I did. Logistics flowed through my veins and managing teams of people came easy to me. I was driven by the mission of the arts making a difference in the lives of others. So, when Matt and I started Child's Play Challenge Courses I clung to my former career, while also supporting our business and working 100 hours a week. Every week. For years. And I was very content...until I wasn't. Until I was burned out from being pulled in two different directions. Then COVID came along and changed everything. ​ Child's Play Challenge Courses flourished, despite the pandemic, as it became increasingly important for folks to stay healthy and active in the safety and comfort of their own location. On the other side, the performing arts came to a crashing halt and I was furloughed from my job. For the first time I was given the opportunity to dedicate 100% of my time to our business. I felt so free! It was exhilarating being outdoors every day with our Course Crushers instead of indoors in meetings. I was living life on my own terms and realizing we were better equipped at providing the security we needed than any outside employer. When we made the decision to franchise I left my old life behind to provide my undivided attention to our business and our franchisees. My personal mission to make a difference in the lives of others burns brighter than ever with Child's Play Challenge Courses. Owning my own business has made me truly happier than I have ever been and I want that same happiness for our franchisees. It's been said, "build your own dreams or someone else will hire you to build theirs." Reach out to me and let's talk about how you can not just dream, but challenge yourself to make it happen. I can't wait to talk to you. Lauren Borawski, Co-Owner, Co-Founder & Chief Operating Course Master
