It say its waiting for me??
I am really sorry this took so long! I am in the middle of a thunderstorm, and am having internet issues.

Thank you for your response not a sole proprietorship, it is considered to be a separate entity from yourself personally.
This means that filing a business Bankruptcy, unfortunately, cannot discharge your personal liability for your personal debts - even though those debts were incurred solely for your business.

I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.

Thank you.
