People do all types of illegal things and get into other situations that are just plain wrong.
Some abuse children or animals.
Others pay individuals salaries that are below the poverty level.
Then there are some who profit from information obtained against industry and government laws.
We read or hear about these situations every day.
All you want to do is start a business, a gift basket business, an enterprise where you risk all of your investment in return for hard work to take care of your family while putting smiles on the faces of the people who receive your beautiful basket designs.
In some states within the U.S., you’re not able to start a gift basket business at home.
Because laws in some states say that it’s illegal to work at home.
Each state’s law dictates why this is a crime.
Perhaps one reason is that individuals who’ve employed people at their homes in the past abused workers by paying them poorly or had those workers doing jobs in less-than-sanitary conditions.
Whatever the reason, it has nothing to do with you, as you are conducting business on your own to stay ahead of bill payments, show your children a better way of life, and keep off the unemployment rolls.
Chapter 4 (Home Office and Workspace Setup and Structure) of the gift basket book addresses zoning issues, which is the one problem some of us must abide by before setting up business at home. Zoning laws in every U.S. city identify which streets are set up for residences only and which ones are mixed-use blocks (stores and medical offices can be alongside residences).
The chapter provides you with solutions to help you make gift baskets at home if you learn that your city or state doesn’t allow it.

The bottom line is that if you truly want to make gift baskets at home and current laws say that you cannot, you can change the system. Do not give up on your dream!
