How do you find flow?

Surfing? Meditating? Binge watching GoT?

I’ve been working remote from Mexico with a group of digital hustlers for the past week and have been pleasantly surprised to find lots of flow here.

From sketch noting on the beach, to riffing on biz strategy with the traveling friends, the flow is strong this week.

So what comes next?

All this flow has me energized to continue building as both a service and product company. Investing momentum from service sales into product creation. And using those products as marketing for services.

Check out the beach sketches to get a feel for the strategy 👇

I’m reading…

In a Sunburned Country by Bill Bryson. If you’re a Bryson fan, read this next.

If you’re not a Bill Bryson fan you should question your priorities, and then go read this book.

Engaging perspective on the wild, sometimes banal, and generally deadly world of Australia.

Pic of the week…

Aqui esta most of the remote work week group. Cheers to cousin Jeff for pied piping and organizing an incredible 10 days throughout Mexico. The breadth/depth of hustles these guys are working on is amazing 🚀More pics from the week.

Percolating on…

Dia de los Muertos. Last weekend in Oaxaca was stunning as the city transformed into a center of Day of The Dead festivities.

“So here I am. Thinking about death again. Humbles out the stress, lets the breath get in

And, as always, please give me feedback on Twitter. Just send a tweet to @blueRavenDigitl and put #SketchyTimesDispatch at the end so I can find it.
