I'm working in web development, now I worked with my wife and my sister trying to develop them to work in freelancing as well, they are currently working with me as Graphic Designer and my sister in data entry and SEO, they've been working with me for over a year and I believe they are now skilled enough to take their own jobs, but thinking about it, what is the best approach here? would it be better to create an agency that we three work together under as well as individually? or it would be better for each of us to work separately and not under an agency?
Also if I created an agency, would that affect my top rated status?
You may read this article about agency to see if agency is good for you. Your agency won't affect your Top Rated status as an independent freelancer. However, if your agency is a Top Rated Agency, you'll have a top rated badge on your agency profile as well as your freelancer profile. You may learn more about that here. Thanks!
