I’m on a Boat Market Leverage A-Lister Yacht Party Affiliate Summit East 2009 New York

I am absolutely thrilled to tell you I was invited to be an A-Lister by Market Leverage for their ‘Yacht Party’ at Affiliate Summit East in New York City!

I made an extremely embarrassing video of myself rapping “I’m On A Boat” to enter in the sweepstakes contest. Although I didn’t win the contest, I did win an invite to attend the “I’m on a Yacht” Market Leverage Cruise in New York City with a number of Industry Celebrities, like John Chow and Zac Johnson and the Market Leverage Team.

I believe there were around 40 of us invited – but I could be corrected ;). We met in the Hilton lobby Sunday at 5:45 and were whisked into limo’s like A-Lister’s, complete with champagne and GREAT company. After a slight glitch in communication, during which we drank more champagne, we boarded the yacht, ‘Valiant’ to enjoy a cruise from the East River to the Hudson River and back again.

Notice the guy on the left? He was standing with the two Market Leverage team members welcoming guests aboard the yacht. I sort of mentioned that he must have forgotten to put on his pretty blue Market Leverage shirt – if he was indeed one of the team. He graciously laughed and introduced himself as Michael Jenkins, the CEO of Market Leverage. LOL – nice guy with a sense of humor!
The bar was open, the appetizers were fab and dinner was prepared onboard by Top Chef Finalist Casey Thompson.

Yes, we saw the Statue of Liberty!!! That was definitely a high point for many of us. Lady Liberty looked lovely of course and I was absolutely thrilled to see her for the first time. I couldn’t stop taking pictures and wished I had a much better camera to capture her beauty.

During the cruise, my worst nightmare came about – Dina asked me to be interviewed and to rap my “I’m On A Boat Market Leverage” song. Seriously, I’ve never sang before I made this silly video – not even a solo “Happy Birthday” but I managed to get a few of the important words out at least…. Luckily, I’d had just enough to drink that I performed admirably (LOL – that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!) but not enough to make a complete fool of myself! You may see for yourself in the MLTV video below (If the video doesn’t play for you, use this link):

Please tell me that wasn’t too bad for my very first TV interview. Lies are graciously accepted!

My wholehearted THANKS to Dina Riccobono of Market Leverage for inviting me to take part in this fabulous A-Lister Yacht Cruise. I had a wonderful time, met so many interesting people and enjoyed seeing New York City by boat.

I’m On a Boat!

Everybody take a look at me!

    You are so very welcome Heather, I’m glad you were able to make it. You definitely made the party the rockstar event of ASE with your rapping skills. Will we see a follow up for our next party? :)

    LOL Dina – you’re a funny girl 😉

    Maybe I should rap about being the hottest batchelorette – that would certainly scare the boys!!! Heeheeeee…

    I’ll see you in Orlando, but I think I’ll retire my rapping career :)

    That was a great party. I loved being able to go. Heather, hanging out with you and Murray was a lot of fun. Where are OUR Xshot pictures?

    Oh no, you CAN’T retire just yet. You haven’t had enough time to consider a comeback career!

    New York at night is wonderful and I’ve also been to the Statue of Liberty once myself. Sounds like a fun party. Hope there is another one!
