What You'll Learn on the Island

Peer-to-Peer Content, Interactive, and Absolutely NO Keynotes

Some sessions are led by one person, and some are moderated panels.

Come only to the sessions that call to you, there is plenty else to do… This is YOUR entrepreneurial adventure…

Here is a sneak peek at some of the 27 content sessions this June...


How a Former School Teacher Took His Company From Nothing to the Nasdaq

DOM WELLS — Founder of Onfolio

In August 2022, Dom Wells took his small, unprofitable company public via an IPO on the Nasdaq. In this session, he’ll walk you through the story, why he did it, how on earth he did it, and what it was like. He promises to include at least 1 dad joke, 2 memes, and 3 puns.

CAMERON HEROLD — Founder, COO Alliance, Former COO, 1-800-GOT-JUNK?

As founder and CEO, you’re used to making all the decisions, but the business you have isn’t yet the one you envision.

Everyone Here Has Something to Teach & Something to Learn

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:

  • The exact tactics 8- and 9-figure business owners are using to grow their customer bases
  • Opportunities and risks with cryptocurrency
  • How to finance your next expansion
  • How to mine customer insight for higher-converting copywriting
  • Instagram ad strategies that no longer work anymore, and what’s replacing them
  • Concrete strategies to grow your personal wealth
  • Boosting customer LTV through better retention
  • How to correctly microdose crystal LSD
  • Your new business you decided to create on the island
  • What firms NOT to hire and why
  • How to build high-level teams (so you can actually enjoy your time)
  • New technology and trends you need to start paying attention to
  • And so, so much more…
Beats the hell out of a conference room.
“A shot of soul with a chaser of strategy.”

This is Your Safe, Pitch-Free Place to Grow

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.

Teach. Learn. Relax. Connect.
Riding a healthy buzz and getting familiar with each other over happy hour.

Form Spirit-Boosting, Soul-Opening Connections

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.

Skip the superficial and jump right into lifelong friendships.
Not a bad place for a heart-to-heart.

An Intimate & Private Setting

To keep the Baby Bathwater Island experience intimate — so you can form genuine connections — we cap attendance at 200 highly curated invitees.
Around half will be the “regulars,” folks who’ve been in the community for years. So the culture will be strong. And half will be experiencing Baby Bathwater for the first time… so you won’t be alone (not by a long shot)!
You can do the math. There are only 100 spots for new attendees. And over half of those are already taken.
Apply now to make sure you’re with us on the island in June 2023.
And remember: freedom is something that dies unless it’s used…
Part community, part family, all Baby.
A group more powerful than the sum of its parts.

Refuel Your Soul (Without the Creepy New Age Stuff)

We’ve got your animal pleasures right here

Savor the best food & drink 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 open bars spread throughout the island.

Cheers to making new connections…

Dinner time, compliments to the best chef/human.
Share a drink (or three) with your new friends.

Cut Loose With Live Music Every Night

You can dance if you want to. You can leave your friends behind… Better yet, dance WITH your friends.

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.

Happy hour by the sea complete with live music and new friends. Life is good.
At night we put our dancing shoes on and boogie down ’til sunrise.

Relax With a Quick Swim, Stand-Up Paddleboarding, Sailing, & Sun

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.

Come on in, the water’s perfect.
Or hop on the boat for a tour of the Adriatic…

Rest Up in Your Luxury Bungalow

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.

Don’t worry, you’re not “roughing it.” This is glamping at its finest.
At the end of a long day, sink into your comfy bed (conveniently located directly below the AC unit).
Each bungalow has its own bathroom and shower with plenty of hot water for rinsing off between dips in the sea.
Got the late-night munchies at 2am but couldn’t finish the whole pizza? Save it for later in the mini fridge.

(And Holy Shit, These Views)

The Island in all her glory.
Not too shabby, eh?

Big Thinkers, Boundary Pushers & Lovable Nutjobs to the Front

Yeah, It's a Weird Name

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.

No quicker way to our hearts than good food, good drink, and good company.
You’ve gotta do more than dip your toe in…

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming ‘Wow! What a ride!’”

An unmatched group of go-getters, diem carpers, lovable eccentrics, and boundary pushers.
No egos. Just amigos.
