Pampered Pet Expo – Orlando Pet Parents Discover It’s All About Education at the Expo

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) July 30, 2009

When Tammy Roussin was working on her Doctorate in Business and Management Information Systems, she wasn’t picturing picking up dog poop for a living. But after a bad experience her beloved cocker spaniel had during a kennel stay, the idea for a pet sitting/dog walking business was formed. Nowadays, Tammy is occasionally laughed at and made fun of because she picks up dog poop, but she’ll gladly tell you that she’s the one who’s laughing because she pulls in a cool $ 100,000 a year as the owner of Pampered Pet LLC., a pet-sitting/dog walking business.

And if that doesn’t make you want to wag your tail, Pet Sitters International, the world’s largest education association for professional pet sitters, reported that more than 11% of their members have gross business revenues of $ 75,000 or more annually and several businesses report annual incomes of more than $ 1 million. Even amid the recession, the industry has been holding steady.

Tammy, who lives in St. Louis, MO will be a guest speaker at the Pampered Pet Expo, an event for Central Florida pet lovers being held August 7th – 9th, 2009 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. Her seminar entitled “Build a Profitable Pet Sitting Business” will walk pet lovers through the details of setting up a pet sitting business. She’ll also be sharing her secrets to success, including having a positive attitude, the will to persevere and always having a smile on your face when talking on the phone.

This seminar is just one of the many education opportunities at the Pampered Pet Expo. The main focus of the event is to provide an array of fun classes and informative presentations geared to pet parents. The variety of free and low-cost sessions include: Red Cross Pet First Aid & CPR; Canine Behavior Basics; DOGA (yoga with your dog); 5 Keys to Successful Animal Communication; Traveling With Your Pets; When it Comes to Wildlife, What you Need to Know to Keep Your Pets Safe and many more.

In addition to classes, attendees can visit the Ask-a-Vet Center, talk to pet adoption groups, shop with local and national vendors of pet products and enjoy entertainment such as the K9′s in Flight Frisbee Air Dogs, the ShowBirdz! performing parrot show and the Swanky Pooch Fashion Show.

The Pampered Pet Expo is being held in the West Building, Hall D of the Orlando/Orange County Convention Center. Expo hours are from 4pm to 9pm on Friday, 10am to 7pm on Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday. Daily adult admission is $ 10 in advance and $ 12 at the door. Friday evening is half-price. Children 10 and under are free. Parking at the Convention Center is $ 8 per car. Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by visiting or by calling 800-249-3154. Due to the event’s location, the public is asked not to bring their pets.

Now It’s Easier than Ever to Stop Smoking, Thanks to New Ebook and Interactive Website

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) December 27, 2006

Today, Allen Jones releases his long-awaited ebook titled, “The Stop Smoking Guide,” and officially launches his new interactive Stop Smoking Website.

Over the last several years, more and more people have attempted to stop smoking. Unfortunately, the success rates have been so low that many people have decided to give up quitting instead of giving up smoking. What is the reason behind this? Because quitting smoking is hard. Very hard.

Now, Allen Jones has found a surprisingly simple new way to stop smoking. In fact, it is being touted by its users as the easiest way a person can stop smoking. Today, Allen releases this previously top-secret stop smoking program to the World and explains why it is working better than all the rest.

“Any stop smoking program that you see today deals with only one type of addiction, either physical or psychological. It’s no secret in today’s world that addiction to cigarettes is a double-edged sword,” says Allen Jones, smoking cessation specialist. “In order to kick the habit, a person must overcome both types of addiction at the same time. When a person concentrates on fighting only one type of addiction, the other type doesn’t just go away. It waits until you are most vulnerable and rears its ugly head with a vengeance. This causes most people to fail in their attempt to stop smoking within just a few days.”

The Stop Smoking Guide ebook eliminates this problem. It explains how a person can easily rise above both the physical and psychological dependence simultaneously to stop smoking once and for all. The ebook is well laid out and easy to read. “I was a smoker for 26 years. I wrote this ebook specifically for smokers, in terms they will easily understand. I believe that by letting them know I was once in their shoes, they will trust and abide by the guide even more.”

The ebook also contains several motivational chapters explaining not only why a person should stop smoking but why a person smokes in the first place. “It is important for a person to understand what is happening inside their mind and body that is causing them to smoke. I have found that just knowing these things gives a person a significant advantage in their attempt to stop smoking.”

At the end of the ebook is the actual guide. It is a step-by-step instructional guide, including daily exercises, that walks a person through every step, letting them know where they should be and what they should be doing every day.

Allen is also launching his new interactive website, It features a Stop Smoking Forum, Blog and Article Directory as well as multitudes of stop smoking information. As a person stops smoking, they can use the website as a place to go for support, encouragement and motivation. This is also where you will be able to get The Stop Smoking Guide ebook. “People can come to the website and actively participate in the forum, post comments on the blog and even submit their own stop smoking articles and stories for everyone to read. I believe the interactivity will make it a huge success.”

Allen is hoping to build a loyal online community that will eventually be the place to go for anyone who is trying to stop smoking. Once people stop smoking with this program, he hopes they will stick around and continue helping the “newbies” as they enter the community.

“Again, I can’t tell you how excited I am to get this information into the public eye because I know it works. I’ve seen dozens and dozens of people stop smoking using this method and they have all commented on how much easier it was than any other program they had tried.”

When Fighting Fraudulent Ticket Sales In Orlando, It’s the Commitment to Tourists that Really Counts; The Official Ticket Center Has Responded to the Problem

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) September 29, 2009

It’s well-known that discount Walt Disney World tickets can be difficult to find at the best of times. Fraudulent ticket sales from off-site theme park vendors have been a problem. Most visitors to Walt Disney World in Orlando can only hope that the availability of cheap Disney Tickets exists, when they want them, and at the right price.

The company has a newly revamped blog and also has a daily promotion that brings significant free incentives for ticket sales over $ 500., including two free Universal City Walk passes or two kids “eat free” cards.

One innovative and well-known Orlando entrepreneur, Patrick Pulliam of The Official Ticket Center, has made a success out of ethically offering an abundant supply of in-demand Orlando attraction tickets, including the popular Disney World, at major discounts. Patrick Pulliam, Owner of The Official Ticket Center, has carved out a highly unique niche and strong discount reputation in one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations.

“We have been very successful in forging a consumer friendly service,” Pulliam says. “We always felt that Orlando-bound tourists need not pay top dollar for prime attractions like Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando resort, Sea World , Kennedy Space Center and other popular Central Florida attractions. Especially in today’s economy, when high prices have kept families away.”

Pulliam and his staff work hard to provide Orlando tourists with a wide variety of information regarding visits to Orlando as well.

“We help to distribute an interesting weekly report about the best deals in Orlando,” Pulliam says, “and The Weekly Scoop is a very popular summary that our current and previous customers always look forward to.”

A recent “Weekly Scoop” included hot advice on Disney Water Parks, and a listing of special events in Orlando of interest to area visitors.

“Disney attractions have been especially competitive in the slow economy,” Pulliam observes.

He does not expect area theme parks to immediately begin pulling back on the discounts that have helped to maintain attendance during the recession.

“The essential issue is really how fast tourists continue to book aggressively,” Pulliam says. “Whenever and wherever they do come to Orlando, The Official Ticket Center will be here to competitively service the traveling public with outstanding, discounted ticket prices to all major Orlando and Central Florida attractions.”

Pulliam additionally pointed out that current Orlando area promotions have reached a lot of first-time families. He indicated he is committed to moving forward with a focus on servicing first-time and repeat visitors with optimum service and extremely competitive ticket pricing.

Homeowner Alert: It’s Time to Claim Higher Tax Credits for Replacing a Roof

Orange Park, Florida (PRWEB) March 4, 2010

There are powerful new federal tax incentives to have an energy-saving replacement roof installed in 2010, according to Clark Briggs, roofing contractor and owner of Kayco Roofing.

“Think of it this way: For every dollar you spend to upgrade, the government gives back 30-cents,” says Briggs. “It’s a one-time ‘super savings’, on top of your monthly utility bill reduction from an energy-efficient roof.”

Because the tax break is designed to encourage energy-saving upgrades, it applies to existing homes only. The deduction is for the cost of roofing materials, up to $ 1500. This is three times larger than any past energy tax incentive. The boost for 2010 is part of the government economic stimulus program.

“It’s the mother of all refunds!” Briggs enthused. “But you have to do it in 2010. Why not get it done before our Northeast Florida summer sets in?”

He points out consumers have a choice of two different types of roofs that qualify for the tax incentives. Either asphalt shingle, or metal roofs with the ENERGY STAR label earn the tax break. These products reflect back the sun’s rays, lowering the temperature of the roof surface. That heat does not pass through to the home, markedly reducing the demand for cooling.

“An ENERGY STAR roof can pay for itself in ten years in utility savings alone,” said Briggs, citing US Department of Energy calculations. “When your 2010 tax credit knocks off a chunk of cost, the roof pays for itself even sooner.” New roofs have an average life of 25-30 years.

“If you want to super-size your energy savings, have us add improved insulation on the inside of your replacement roof,” advises Briggs.

Briggs recommends consumers contact a reputable roofing contractor for advice on qualified roofing. He also reminds homeowners to watch out for fly-by-night roofers, who may say they’re installing a qualified roof, but don’t; or install it improperly, negating any energy savings.

Contractors hope to spread the word about the significant incentives for a roofing upgrade because, Briggs says, “It would be a shame to see this money go to waste”.

Orlando’s Finest Vacation Homes Celebrates it’s 10th Anniversary with Discounts on Orlando Vacation Home Rentals

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) January 19, 2008

Orlando’s Finest Vacations Homes, LLC, one of the pioneers in the Orlando vacation home rental business, is celebrating its tenth anniversary offering discount rates to vacationers who stay in their condos, town houses, villas and vacation homes in the next six months.

Mark and Susan Whichard are the proprietors of Orlando’s Finest Vacation Homes, and they started business in 1998. That was “long before most companies knew what a vacation home was,” said Mark. Their company has grown and now offers vacationers in the Orlando area the option of staying in two and three bedroom condos and townhomes as well as private vacation homes and villas that range in size from 3 bedroom to 7 bedroom rather than in hotels while enjoying the attractions of Orlando.

To celebrate their tenth anniversary they are offering discounts to visitors who mention the 10th anniversary special when booking their accommodations in Orlando. “We want to express our thanks to our loyal clientele,” explains Whichard.

Many families find that renting a condo, home or villa while visiting Disney World and the other Orlando attractions is more economical than staying in a hotel. “In almost all cases it is cheaper for a family to stay in a rented home, condo or even a luxury villa, than to stay in a hotel,” says Whichard.

Orlando’s Finest operates from its website and offers vacationers everything from condos right up to seven bedroom homes and executive villas. The homes are furnished and generously equipped with Cable TV, VCR, Internet and stereo systems as well as full air conditioning and heating. The homes also have private swimming pools. The condos and town houses feature community swimming pools, fitness centers and spas, children’s play areas and other facilities.

Orlando’s Finest Vacation Homes are also well-located. “They are all close to Disney and other Orlando attractions,” explains Whichard. The company also has more than 200 two and three bedroom condos and town-homes located in the area’s popular fully inclusive resort communities such as Windsor Hills, Windsor Palms and Emerald Island.

The combination of luxurious accommodations at a good price, good location and flexibility are the reason why vacation home rentals have soared in the Orlando area in the last ten years, according to Whichard.
