Michael Lovitch, MA is a former special education professional, over-educated grad student, and floundering tech sales guy who decided at the age of 34 to take the entrepreneurial path because nothing else was working. He started a publishing company in the psychology space that ended up being a 7-figure endeavor, then parlayed that into a physician-based nutritional supplement company (RealDose Nutrition) that ended up with annual revenues of $50 million dollars before he sold out his stake.
Now, he is the co-founder of the Baby Bathwater Institute, a community that helps bootstrapped entrepreneurs navigate the crazy world of business ownership while having good times and making lifelong friendships.
Barbara Branaman is the CEO of Bioreset Medical, an integrative medicine practice, as well as a long-time practitioner and teacher of yoga and QiGong, and a recovering Silicon Valley tech executive.

Her formal education includes an undergraduate degree in Chinese Language and Literature from Oberlin College and Tunghai University in Taichung, Taiwan. During her study abroad, she began her studies in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) and Medical QiGong. She continued her education at the Thunderbird School of Global Management, receiving an MBA that led her to a career in high tech marketing and management with IBM, Rolm, Concentric Network and XO Communications.
