I don't really understand your facts. If you filed a personal bankruptcy case and received a discharge, then that discharged you from the obligation to pay on any debts you hold personally. It doesn't affect any liabilities owed by any other entity, including separate corporation (you don't state whether your "business" is a corporation or not, but I'm assuming it is).
Similarly, if you filed a bankruptcy for a corporation, it would not affect the liabilities that you have personally.
If your business owes debts it cannot pay and you wish to remain in business, the business should consider filing a Chapter 11 case (again, I'm assuming this "business" is a corporation).
