Default Businessathome.com scam?

For months now I've heard this company advertised on the radio as I drive my kids to and fro. I've wondered about it and, mostly, been suspicious due to the vague advertising.

Since I get asked a lot about different kinds of home businesses, I finally decided to look this one up so that I could give a reasonable response. I found a very fair, cogent explanation of what this program really is and some of the pros and cons of the system. I hope it's helpful to those of you who have thought about looking into it. [I have no affiliation with this company, nor with the linked article.]

Really? They're advertising this on the radio now, are they? That is interesting.

This one ("incomeathome.com") is a sort of "double funded proposal" - it's not just a funded proposal for a network marketing company: it's essentially a funded proposal for a funded proposal for a network marketing company! A curiosity, if nothing else: I can't actually think of another one at all.

I once looked at the "end-company" (Wealth Masters International) myself. It was no use to me because the entry-level product (about $1,500 or $1,600 as I remember - this was a couple of years ago) and I believe parts of the higher-level products are really exclusively American in content (i.e. financial advice about US company law, tax law, and so on). But I certainly didn't see anything terribly off-putting about it, and I know some people do very well with it.

I'm not quite sure it's strictly "MLM" (though I note the article you've linked to describes it as that, which surprised me a little), but it's certainly network marketing, anyway.
