Co-Founders Hollis Carter and Michael Lovitch have demonstrated ‘what happens when a couple of pseudo-intellectual hacks attempt to create a worthwhile entrepreneurial community.’ Serial Entrepreneur Hollis Carter admits that he turns his ‘outlets’ into businesses.

Carter talks with Roland today about his businesses, and specifically the Mastermind, Baby Bathwater Institute, that ties them all together.

  • How they created stability by shifting their events business to a membership model that had events as one of the benefits.

  • The carefully planned ‘light side touches’ that make all the difference.

“There’s a lot of little touches, but our big one is not to make anything feel too structured…but we spend lots of time planning it so that they all kind of happen in concert without anyone really feeling it forced upon them.” Hollis Carter.

• His Ask, Give, Share Model

“Entrepreneurs are inherently competitive, and they seem to be competing quite a bit to give more. I love it” – Hollis Carter.
