    There are many reasons for selling a business but if you are looking just at the financial part, you only have to ask two questions:
    1. Am I making as much money as I should be making?
    2. Could I use my cash and time in a way that makes more money?

    I can’t tell from your question if your debt is business debt or personal debt and you don’t want to confuse them. If you are generating a healthy profit from your business after expenses and debt service then you have a good business. Can you generate more profit by selling those parts of your business and paying off the debt? If you have a high interest rate and/or crushing monthly payments that reduce your profits then you might want to sell, especially if you are eliminating the low margin parts of your business while keeping the high margin parts. But if you are just trying to raise cash because you don’t like debt, you may be making a bad long term decision.

    In a similar situation I once asked for free advice from SCORE (, a group of retired executives who volunteer their time. A face to face meeting will probably be more valuable than advice from someone who doesn’t have all the details.

    Good Luck!
