Hi Paul. You have some good tips for freelancers. I'm new to Odesk, and getting more work. .
Question for you though. If I start an angency just acting as a middleman between free lancers and contractors, what percentage do I get? I don't want to be an employer, just act as a go between. I think that doing both freelancing and acting as an agent will make me more money.
Do you know how that all works?

You need to discuss and agree upon the percentage with your agency freelancers. Basically, the funds paid by the clients for work will first go to the agency account and then you will be responsible for paying your freelancers.
What do you mean saying that agency owner is responsible for paying teammembers? If I agenct owner, should I pay my teammebers outside of Upwork? Is it possible to do that in upwork?
