Welcome to the Internet Marketing Association

Earlier this month in Irvine, the IMA and I had the opportunity to collaborate and introduce Peter Thiel at Palmer Luckey's home in Newport Beach. The gathering was for Alex Epstein's book launch, called "Fossil Future."

Peter and I had an in-depth conversation about the IMA as well as orientation of several of our advisory board members.

It is relationships like these that the IMA tries to foster for our advisory board members and our greater community.
