As you will hear a lot of the challenges of running a business out of your kitchen is because of laws that ensure the health of your customers. These are the cottage food laws and if you are planning on selling anything out of your kitchen I would encourage you to research these laws for your state. For the sake of this episode I did link the Mississippi Cottage Food Laws below. Again, be sure to check for you personal state.My two favorite parts of this episode were when Christa talked about setting boundaries to protect her most important asset and that was her family. As a new business they had just experienced an extremely busy week and the fruit of that wasn't great for them personally as they were exhausted. They realized that they over extended themselves and their date night didn't offer much in the way of connection. And you may say well that's just one week. But that one week can easily turn into one month which can turn into a habit of over extending themselves. Recognizing challenges early and keeping to their priorities will help so many areas, not just their business. My second favorite part was talking about integrity. When you're in business for yourself by yourself no one is looking over your shoulder. If you happen to do some bending of the rules there's no one to know otherwise. Under the Mississippi Cottage Food Laws the Lee's are not able to ship items they sell. And with friends that aren't local that want to support their business their hands are tied. The Lee's could probably sell and send items around the country. But, they have committed to running their business with integrity and that may cause their business to grow more slowly than someone without integrity but they are growing something they can be proud of.
