We don't give a damn:
Now here is what we DO care about:
How to Become Part of the Community (The Process)
We review every application carefully, one-by-one, and we will reach out to you if we feel this is a good fit
The next step is to get you on a call with Hollis or Michael (the folks who started this thing) so we can figure out whether it would be a mutual fit for you to attend one of our events.
Attend an Event
Only after meeting you over a period of these 4 or 5 days can current members make a sane decision on whether you are a good fit for the group. Just know that at our events, you will never be pitched and we will never ask you to open your wallet. Period.
Prepare to join the most valuable (and fun) entrepreneur community on planet earth.

Frequently Asked Questions
If after our two-way interview call we decide this is a mutually good fit, then we send you a private invite link to an event where we have space available.
Then you either sign up, or you don’t.
We get it, you’re here to throttle the nectar out of this life — because otherwise, what’s the point? We’re passionate people with a penchant for straight talk — so we’ll give it to you straight.
There are no ROI guarantees.
The Baby Bathwater community is better earned and experienced, rather than explained and sold…But here is what we can tell you…
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.
After doing this for over seven odd years and countless events, we’ve learned that if you show up with an open mind, have a positive attitude, and give more than you get amongst this group of humans, then good things will happen.
And if you are looking for an ROI by selling services to people at the event, you will be out of luck as there is no pitching or soliciting allowed. Most folks find this refreshing.
Some people own brands and are dedicated to one. Some own multiple ventures. Some invest heavily in ethical fun opportunities. Some are B2B (but again, no soliciting).
The vertical is not relevant as long as it is an ethical business that you care about.
We DON’T care about your status, # of followers, or bank account(s)…but we DO care about who you are as a person, that you have the skills to help out folks in our community, and that you “give a shit” about your craft, your customers, and how you live.
We’re drawn to the doers of the world who have created and are running successful companies, innovative brand founders who care about their craft, plus the agency founders and freelancers who can help them grow.
Each event has about half members and half people who were approved in the application process… so pretty much full access.
There are zero invisible dividing lines at Baby Bathwater happenings. Everyone here is personally invited. Everyone pays to attend. And everyone shares incredible value.
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).
We work hard to provide a SAFE environment so that you can be a part of high-level, actionable content & conversations from folks that you can TRUST that will help you grow your companies, your wealth, and yourself.
It depends on the event, but typically around 200 is our sweet spot, and it actually feels a lot smaller. We like to keep Dunbar’s Number in mind… Plus, we provide all event attendees with a few recommendations of people we think you should meet so we can tee up thoughtful relationships for you at the event.
Yes you can bring a business partner. We would just need to arrange a pre-event interview call to learn more about the person beforehand and how the group can be a resource, etc.
If you want to bring a significant other that is not involved in your business, this may be an option. We will work this out on a case-by-case basis depending on the event. Just let us know during our interview call or shoot us a message and we can have a conversation about it.
We are schemers with hearts of gold. Be ok with taking, but try to give more. Give selfishly.
Be ok with who you are, but always try to be better. Be comfortable not being perfect.
People should have the courage to wade through the bathwater to get to the baby. Wade through the shit to get the diamonds.
Be authentically you, let your hair down. Be real with where you’re at. Don’t peddle anything. Don’t assume that anyone is any less smart than you. You should behave like you are the newest person in the room. We don’t do status.
Stay in the loop! When you apply to Baby Bathwater you will automatically get added to our newsletter (don’t worry, we’re not organized enough to spam you). This way you will stay up to date on any upcoming Baby Bathwater events and opportunities, and you can let us know when the time is right to take this to the next step.
Energy-suckers, networking, gurus, pitching events, Marriott Hotels, people who have accepted that they have to put on a nametag and go to shitty hotels in order to meet people. Accepting standards because everyone else does.
The devil is sheeple. The devil is accepting normal. The devil is accepting when your gut tells you to question. The devil is complacency. The devil is bad food, bad drugs, bad trips. The devil is buying a ticket for something then still having to pay for shit while you’re there. The devil is non-attention to detail.
