Orlando, FL (PRWEB) April 17, 2008

Global Resort Homes is celebrating their 15th anniversary by offering guests an unbeatable 15% off any Orlando vacation rental when booking a Global Resort Homes property between April 15 and May 15, 2008. In addition, guests that stay during the celebration month have the opportunity to save an additional 15% off, equaling a total savings of 30%.

Global Resort Homes was founded by Guy and Robyn Bouchard in May of 1993 and over the past 15 years Global Resort Homes has set the standard in the industry and established themselves as the premier vacation rental company in Orlando. By offering unparalleled service and an incredible alternative to staying in a cramped hotel room, Global Resort Homes gives Orlando vacationers a variety of choices for their next trip to Orlando. Their hands-on approach to the company sets them apart from their competition as they grew the company one home at a time. The Bouchard’s and their team currently manage nearly 300 properties in six resort communities, allowing them to dedicate personalized staff and individual service to each community of homes.

“We are simply a different type of company” says Robyn Bouchard. “By staying true to our original vision and only managing in select communities, we can offer the best in location, amenities and properties. This way we have on-site staff and can offer a much higher level of service to our guests and our owners alike. The best thing is, we take the guess work out of everything for our clients.”

Even after 15 years in business, Guy, Robyn and the entire Global Resort Homes team continue to remain committed to maintaining the same vision that began 15 years ago and to carrying out their mission statement of being committed to excellence with each Orlando resort rental. “We continue to hear outstanding feedback from our guests and this is what we strive for,” says General Manager, Russ Kraft. “We see the same guests returning year after year and sending their friends and family with outstanding recommendations; it’s exactly the kind of referral business that we’ve come to know and love, which makes us extremely proud of the fact that we’re doing things right.”

Guy, Robyn and team remain committed to participating and giving back to the local community as well as engaging in global-reaching mission trips. The team has not only made an impact locally but have recently traveled to New Orleans and Jamaica to help give aide to those in need. Trips this year may possibly include Mexico and South Africa. “Giving back is at the core of who we are,” says Guy Bouchard. “Being in the service industry doesn’t only mean serving our guests and owners but also serving and helping those in need. “

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.
