Customer Acquisition: How to attract and convert customers with a digital slant
Grow and Scale: How to truly scale through hiring, management, better operations and cash flow… the boring but important stuff

ELEVEN MORE AND COUNTING
There are zero invisible dividing lines at Baby Bathwater happenings. Everyone here is personally invited. Everyone pays to attend. And everyone shares incredible value.
Hang out, ask questions, and have a drink with your fellow inhabitants (drinks are on us).
We don’t have paid “guru” speakers. We have generous content providers who are here to learn as much as they are here to teach. Who knows — we just might call on you to be on a panel or share your content after you successfully interview with us.
You’ll leave Baby Bathwater Island armed with an arsenal of ideas and action steps proven to be effective in the real world.
Just a sampling of past Baby Bathwater Island content sessions & conversations:
Baby Bathwater Island is a No Pitch Zone. No one’s gonna ask you to sign up or buy anything. The person you sit next to at lunch won’t try to recruit you or give you the hard sell.
Along with being super convenient for you and your wallet, this also means that all your other inhabitants are more comfortable kicking back and getting real here than anywhere else.

John Donne said it first: No man (or woman) is an island.
Your business can’t reach its full potential if YOU aren’t working on reaching yours… which is why Baby Bathwater Island focuses on all aspects of growth, both in and outside of your work.
You’ll meet and build lifelong friendships with founders who’ve struggled with the same challenges you’re facing right now. You’ll meet problem-solvers who give you the flash of clarity you need to see things in a different light.
You’ll skip the name-dropping, business-card-swapping, ego-inflating emptiness and go right to the down-and-dirty business of creating the life YOU want to live.
You might even stay up all night with your new friends to watch the blood-orange sun rise over the coast of Italy…
And you’ll remember why you started your business in the first place.
Savor the best food & wine you’ve ever had at an event
Look, hotel catering sucks. We know it. You know it. And we’ll never subject you to it.
Baby Bathwater Island is home to multiple restaurants and bars. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, stroll in for a light lunch, tasty snack, or fresh smoothie made with local produce.
And just in case you were wondering what to drink with your meal, we’ve got you covered with unlimited, all-natural artisan wines from Dry Farm Wines. Not to mention open bars wherever you go on the island.
Cheers to making new connections…
Every night on the island features top-notch entertainment to get the party going. Just like the food, we leave nothing to chance. Our favorite musicians take the boat in with the whole Island crew and spend the whole five days serenading us. You’ll love them, too.
Want to stretch your legs between sessions? Dive into the sparkling Adriatic, hop on a paddleboard, or head to the catamaran for a refreshing cruise around the island.
Like we said, everything’s included. Yep, even your towel.
Baby Bathwater Island bungalows come fully equipped with air conditioning, USB ports, a bathroom with a shower, closets and hangers, a safe, a fridge, and a hair dryer.
Wake up every morning and walk out onto your porch right into rustling trees and a warm coastal breeze. Then come to breakfast, ‘cause you’re not gonna want to miss it.
If you’re the right fit for Baby Bathwater Island, you’re smart, kind, humble, ambitious, and open to learning and trying new things.
You don’t need someone to hold your hand and show you around. You make the most of every opportunity. And opportunities like this don’t come around often…
Baby Bathwater is a collective of entrepreneurs, founders, thinkers, pioneers, and good-hearted, open-minded humans.
We’re passionate people with a penchant for straight talk and screwball adventures. We’re here to throttle the nectar out of this life — because otherwise, what’s the point?
It doesn’t matter how much money you make or how many followers you have. What matters is what lights you up from the inside. The reasons you do what you do. The beliefs and curiosities and goals that make you who you are.
More baby, less bathwater. That’s what we’re all about.
4 of 5 Baby Bathwater Island attendees report making more than they paid for the ticket within 3 months — directly from the relationships they formed here.
Baby Bathwater is built on curated connections. Expect our team to introduce you around while you’re here. You’ll never feel like a spectator, because you’re part of the community.
Plus, use the Baby Bathwater app to make connections ahead of time so you can dig even deeper while you’re on the island. Forget flimsy Facebook friendships — you’ll end up exchanging cell numbers.
This is the can’t-miss event even for entrepreneurs who hate business events. It’s different, you’ll find out why.
Show up with an open mind and a positive attitude. Watch as your time here turns into something real and immediate and intensely motivating… all over the course of 5 magical island days.
Remember, if you’re accepted to Baby Bathwater Island, you’re here for a reason.
This is your chance. Listen to your gut. Apply now.
