During the past five years, PARfessionals has sustained itself without the use of crowdfunding, public donations, loans, grants and/or third party investor funds. Our company’s debt is next to zero. We take pride in the ability to reduce our debt and sustain ourselves on the company’s current monthly operating costs,* which are equivalent to the average American’s monthly car note.
