Why in the Hell Should I Attend this Baby Bathwater Event?
Good question. It’s a unique experience and hard to describe.
So it’s best for past attendees to help answer this question.
1. Return on Investment
4 of 5 attendees report making more than they paid for the ticket within 3 months, directly from the relationships they made at the event
2. Sharp, Humble, Kind People
“Baby Bathwater, hands down, is the most beneficial, most highly curated conference I have ever been to…for me to be surrounded by people where I can literally learn something from every single person here—amazing levels of knowledge, and people that are in all different industries, working in all different media, and teaching me things that I wouldn’t learn for three years if I did not come here. It is hands down the most valuable two and half or three days that I’ve spent in my career. I will never miss a Baby Bathwater.”
Founder, SafetyPIN Technologies
“Quite honestly some of these conversations hanging out here you know on top of the mountain or here at the lake house like I’ve never met so many smart people in such a small group. So I’ve talked to people who have businesses of fifty million a year, who have given me the ideas on video marketing which is absolutely amazing. Even scaling call centers in Spanish speaking countries which is absolutely just brilliant. So the breadth of people here is just phenomenal.”

Why Your Monthly Continuity Programs Don’t Grow and How to Fix It to Exceed Your Recurring Revenue Goals
Over half of subscription revenue growth comes from retention. Too many subscription programs suffer from flat growth because of high churn rates. For too many, money invested to get new members just results in more members who quit.
Robert will “pull back the curtain” so you can see what the most successful subscription companies are doing to increase member engagement, build an emotional connection and grow a vibrant tribe. All focused on reducing subscriber churn and increasing member lifetime value.
- How to transition from individual transactions into selling subscriptions and memberships where you sell once and generate revenue each month.
- Why with memberships what happens after the sale is more important than the sale itself and what you must do to engage your new members, make them want to be part of your vibrant tribe and keep them for life.
- What memberships do to transform their business from “a series of one night stands” into relationships that last.
- How to create marketing once and use it over and over to generate new members.
- The key benefits members eagerly WANT that keeps them engaged and paying generating monthly recurring revenue for many years rather than a few months.
For more than two decades, Robert has helped hundreds of membership programs launch and then grow from start-ups to become some of the largest membership and subscription companies across the globe. Robert’s current clients include Agora Financial, Money Map Press, Capital Information Group, Equitymaster, Perry Marshall and Associates, Rich Dealers, Harley-Davidson dealers and many others.

Content Applicable to My Business
“I have revelations in every session that I sit in. I was just in a social media session and the two panelists spent five minutes telling me how I could improve my business specifically. You know, they’re familiar with my business and just gave me some great advice and that’s wonderful. I could hardly wait to implement it. And I find that in just about every session that I go to, I learn things that are applicable to my business.”

4. A Life Changing Experience, Guaranteed to Recharge Your Batteries
*All Inclusive: Your room, booze, ski passes, are all taken care of… so you can relax and connect.
Your room, booze, ski passes, are all taken care of… so you can relax and connect.
You can go skiing, snowboarding, hot tubbing, and even play some fun winter games.
During the days, you will have always have two choices of content you can go to, or don’t go at all. It is up to you.
Music & Dancing:
The crowd likes to get up and move, and we have a house band that will knock your socks off. We promise you will be singing along to your favorites.
Unbelievably Good Food:
You will be experiencing farm to table style cuisine prepared by Chef Haru – one of the top chefs in the country. It’s healthy, delicious, and creative.
No Pitching or Aggressive Networking:
No one is allowed to “pitch” at the event. So you can go to content without worrying about being asked to pull out your credit card. We also hold a strong line on people not doing the, “networking” thing. You are safe here.
High End Condos, No Stuffy Hotels:
You will be staying in nice condos with full kitchens and living rooms. You will have your own room, and will be carefully put into a condo with folks who can help grow your business.
Away From Your Every Day Reality:
The mountain is secluded and rustic. The views are phenomenal, time slows down, and you will find that you forget about everything else going on in your world. It’s an escape with friends for life.
You can’t bribe your way into this!
“Baby Bathwater, unlike other conferences, isn’t cheesy. It’s real. It’s straight up. It is what it is. That’s at a very high level and everybody here operates at a high level and BS is sniffed out from miles away.”
“Before I came here, I was skeptical, but I soon realized this is different. Because of the curation, there isn’t anybody here not at my level (if not higher). But what surprised me is everybody here has this tremendous sense of contribution… I can’t wait to implement what I’ve learned on Monday with my team.”
CEO, The ASK Method
It is exponentially worth every penny
“The content is phenomenal and the people are phenomenal. It is the best combination of unique, amazing content mixed in with incredible partying, laughter and outdoor fun. It’s not too heavy on either content or partying and the agenda gives you the freedom to indulge in either as much as you like. That’s ideal.”
Easily the best mastermind and networking event that we have ever attended
“BBW was easily the best mastermind and networking event that we have ever attended. The fact that everyone in attendance was so heavily vetted and verified by the BBW curators made the event far more productive and enjoyable. We didn’t have to worry about anyone trying to sell us on something, or waste our time with self-serving agendas. The collective brain power and creativity of the attendees allowed us to learn some great things, and most importantly, make incredible connections that have already taken our business to the next level. BBW is a home run both personally and professionally.”
Founder, Dollar Beard Club
Impeccably delivered on their promise to curate a unique group of entrepreneurs and business owners…
“I go to a lot of events and this is truly one of the best I have ever been to. The people, the venue, the beautiful location, the food, and the diverse content all added up to a superior, high-quality experience. Impeccably delivered on their promise to curate a unique group of entrepreneurs and business owners…”
Co-Founder, The Institute for the Psychology of Eating
I probably teed up several million dollars’ worth of revenue opportunities, minimum
“This was by far the best event I have ever attended. The people who were invited were carefully selected for a really unique combination of an existing track record of success, and being easy and cool to work with.
This is an extraordinary group of people—and the absolute key to the value is the leadership and vision that Hollis Carter and Michael Lovitch are bringing.”

If you’re serious about making money and changing the world, you can’t find a better group
“Michael and Hollis’ event isn’t a conference—it’s a pop-up think thank. Dozens of niche experts and global change makers laid all their cards on the table and made it almost impossible not to make big plans.
Every conversation, every delicious meal, and every crazy activity was focused on connecting people and building better networks. If you’re serious about making money and changing the world, you can’t find a better group of people.”
Obama Campaign’s Social Media Manager
CEO of data-driven consulting firm, Victory Medium
Nearly every conversation opened with ‘how can I help you?
“Over the course of three days I sat down with countless attendees—all were unbelievably helpful, curious, bright experts. Nearly every conversation opened with “how can I help you?”
As the weekend continued, my plans continued to morph, change, and solidify. I left with an actionable plan for how to get started, names and phone numbers of several people I can call on for help, and excitement for pushing forward.
My expectation going in was that online marketing was a bit slimy; I wasn’t sure I would fit in. What I found was a community of depth, character, and contribution—one that I feel grateful and proud to be a part of. Win!””
Co-Founder and VP of Engineering, Critical Path, Inc.
Scrappy founders, focused content, practical advice, and real relationships—totally worth it
“I’ve been to events with amazing people, a lot of them famous. But I’ve never been to an event with so many high-level players who were actually nice and giving.
I’m wary of masterminds where you pay for the privilege of having your ego stroked by a semi-random assortment of wantrepreneurs. And then there’s the Baby Bathwater Institute: scrappy founders, focused content, practical advice, and real relationships—totally worth it.”

Author, The Paleo Manifesto
This event was like an All-Star Game
Having been to hundreds of events over the years (many produced and promoted by my clients), I can honestly say that Hollis and Michael’s weekend on the mountain was the absolute best experience that I’ve ever had, both as a speaker and a guest.
For someone who just can’t sit still during a workshop, I didn’t miss a session and was totally engaged. From the moment I stepped on-site, the conversations began, friendships were made, business deals flowed.”

It’s about the family. It’s about the network. It’s about the connections. That’s what this is about. And as we become one with the mountain, we become one together…
I think what Michael and Hollis are doing—whether they feel it or believe it not—is creating a legacy. And the legacy comes really from the fact that they’re curating this event for the maximum value of the people that participate.
They’re saying to hell with the bullshit, to hell with all of the stuff that you’ll find at other masterminds.”
