I am in San Jose, California, at an intense training to help me deliver more value through my business. My buddy Zion, founder of The Triple Threat Artist, joined me as well, and we’ve been having power lunches to digest and process the information we’ve learned.
Not having a car, we’ve relied on Lyft to taxi us around to our lunchtime adventures. We found this kind of cool place, called Rok, about a 7 minute car ride from our hotel.
