“Home Occupation" shall mean any trade, vocation, occupation, profession, enterprise, service, or any commercial activity, for profit or not-for-profit, that is conducted in connection with the occupation of a dwelling unit meeting all of the zoning regulations set forth in Section 11-4-10, W.M.C., and that does not have a business license pursuant to Chapter 2 of this Title.  The term “home occupation” shall not include any hobby or leisure activity not engaged in for profit.
