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.

Student Aid Centers Invites Students, Parents and Graduates to Launch of New Website

Tampa, FL (PRWEB) July 16, 2007

With rising tuition costs in both private and state colleges and universities, students and their families rely on funding for education. However, not all collegiate funding — nor all student aid lenders — are created equally. Trust is essential when applying for a student loan or student loan consolidation.

Student Aid Centers is not like other websites that are focused on just convincing you to apply for a student loan. The website was created to help parents, college students and graduates find the right loan for them. It was also created to help graduates consolidate their private and federal student loans so they can afford to pay them off.

Student Aid Centers focuses on students’ development during academic years and career placement after graduation, continuing to educate them in critical life objectives and requirements typically in areas not offered as course material in school.

This unique student loan website also offers study materials, tutorials, interview tips, resume writing tips, school searches, scholarship searches, entrance and exit counseling and more to educate its visitors. Now, parents, students and graduates find all the resources that are available to them under one roof, making the professional guidance and tools offered by Student Aid Centers and their representatives exceptional in its marketplace.

One compelling reason borrowers are turning to programs offered by Student Aid Centers are the cash back and rebate incentives, along with rate and principal reduction programs not offered by direct loans provided by federal agencies and many traditional sources of funding.

The ease of applying for loans along with approvals within just minutes, no out-of-pocket cost or prepayment penalties, and repayment terms up to a flexible 30 years and high borrowing limits, keeps borrowers coming back to consolidate their student loans.

In addition to that, Student Aid Centers helps graduate students find funding and loan consolidation options tailored specifically to their courses of study — from business to law to medical students and graduates. Students — both undergraduate and graduate — as well as their parents can discover the information that they need to determine whether or not consolidating student loans would benefit them.

Student loan consolidation enables borrowers to control their student debt. With student loan consolidation, all previously borrowed student loans will be combined. A single payment, therefore, will be all that is required each month, and flexible payment plans are available — payment plans that enable graduated students to repay their students loans and be able to meet other financial obligations.

Student Aid Centers addresses questions and concerns relating to student aid and student loan consolidation.

Student Aid, “The Trusted Resource for Academic and Career Advancement” ™ is a national leading organization providing student aid resources and information to students, graduates, parents and schools. To learn more about Student Aid Centers and the financing that they make available, visit

Eco-Together at Grande Lakes Orlando; Parents Paddle and Kids Kayak Through the Orlando Resort’s Shingle Creek

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) November 21, 2007

Nurture meets nature as Grande Lakes Orlando expands its Grande Lakes Outfitters program to include specialized Eco-Tours for families. Priced at just $ 80 per adult and $ 50 per child under 12 years of age (child must be at least 2 years old), the two-hour eco-tour experience at the Orlando resort can accommodate families of up to 15.

Orlando is known throughout the world as being the ideal family vacation destination and Grande Lakes Outfitters’ Eco-Tours add an important learning element to any Orlando adventure, further complimented by the resort’s luxury experience.

The interactive eco-tours include active canoe or kayak journeys through Shingle Creek. Enthusiastic guides start the adventure by picking families up in camouflage golf carts set out for one of the most remote sections of Grande Lakes. After a mini “off-road” experience, groups have the option to explore the creek while paddling in a canoe or kayak, depending on the comfort level

Throughout the journey, the guides share the history of Shingle Creek, and take parties through a series of close-up observations of native species in their natural habitat. Baby alligators, bald eagles, ospreys, and the endangered wood stork species are all part of the wonderment that is on display during a Shingle Creek Eco-Tour.

For those in search of an instructional experience, an Orvis fly-fishing school (one of only ten in the U.S.) is located on-site and available to guests at both The Ritz-Carlton and JW Marriott hotels, as well as to all outside visitors.

Guests at both luxury hotels in Orlando can also enjoy all the facilities and services at Grande Lakes Orlando, including the 18-hole championship golf course, designed by Greg Norman, the 40,000-square-foot Ritz-Carlton Spa offering a wide selection of natural treatments, baths and hydrotherapies, and advice from the world’s first Citrus Consultant.
