All attendees are pre-vetted via an interview with the founders.
We look for how you can enhance the experience through both your skills AND personality.
If you’re accepted, you’ll be among some of the nicest, highly skilled entrepreneurs you’ve ever met. Yes, kindness counts.
We know this because over the last five years, only about 20% of applicants have been accepted. And our policy is to only invite half the people back after each event.
We spend hours on the phone interviewing every single qualified applicant to make sure that the moment you step into our event, you’re going to dive into the best conversations of your life.
From well-known founder-driven brands, to ecommerce store founders, to highly skilled boutique B2B firm founders, to neuroscientists, to philanthropists, the gang’s all here.
You’ll meet trailblazing thinkers and doers. The most important thing? You’ll be among true givers who are excited to share and learn.
If you’re kind, love to learn from interesting folks, and want to expand your connections and grow your business… then this might be the place for you.
There are 3 content areas:
Starting at 10:00, every two hours we will have sessions in these three categories:
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
Peak Performance / Wealth: A Combination of science-based peak performance training and wealth building
Some sessions are led by one human, 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.

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 attendees (drinks are on us).
We don’t have “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 New Orleans armed with an arsenal of ideas and action steps proven to be effective in the real world.
Baby Bathwater New Orleans 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 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 New Orleans skyline…
And you’ll remember why you started your business in the first place.
Swanky southern jaunts, soulful cajun creole, eclectic brass band parades, peer-to-peer content, great music & good times…but the real kicker is to be in such a place surrounded by a group of humans unlike any other.
Compared to what you may have experienced at conferences or other events, this shindig is relatively small. Once the ACE Hotel is full, there will be no overflow.
Around half will be our members—folks who’ve been in the community for years. And these folks booked their tickets way back in 2019.
In addition, this event was originally scheduled for October of 2020, and most of the new folks who had bought tickets for that date have rolled over to the 2021 dates.
Yes, we are using a scarcity tactic… but the scarcity is for realz.
So even though the dates might seem far away, if you want this experience, you should apply as early as possible.
And remember: freedom is something that dies unless it’s used…
Savor the best food & wine you’ve ever had at an event
Look, most event fare sucks. We know it. You know it. And we’ll never subject you to it.
Baby Bathwater New Orleans will be serving up food so good you’ll wanna slap yo’ momma. We’re talking southern fare with a tastefully healthy twist, an endless array of delicious eats for all different styles of tastebud, and a wide variety of cocktail, beer, & all-natural sugar-free artisan wines.
Our boundless meal plan will have you covered with from sun-up to sun-down, and anytime in between. Not to mention a seemingly endless open bar to ensure you and your new friends will never run dry.
Cheers to making new connections…
Attendees will experience the Big Easy in true style, in our very own art-deco-style boutique hotel in the heart of the city.
If you’re the right fit for Baby Bathwater New Orleans, 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 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 in the Big Easy. 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 four unforgettable days in the Big Easy.
Remember, if you’re accepted to Baby Bathwater New Orleans, you’re here for a reason.
This is your chance. Listen to your gut. Apply now.
We’ll share the Baby Bathwater app with all the attendees two weeks before the event. The app will include the full event schedule, and will help you get an idea of how to spend your time with us in New Orleans.
Things officially kick off on Monday, September 27th at 5PM CST.
Tuesday and Wednesday are full days packed with content, wellness, activities, surprises and good times.
The event will wrap up at 2PM CST on Thursday, September 30th.
