Day Two – Affiliate Ball with Ice T & Coco and Karaoke


I had to stop and tell Coco that she was doing social media well for herself. She has branded herself as @Cocosworld and is doing themed tweets. Props to her and what a sweet person. She even took a pic with @JGoode's Traveling Penguin. 


Of course, Karaoke was a must and a fun event to attend during the show hosted by Affiliate Summit.
