How do you set up a freelancer and client account?

I have been on here and Elancer as a freelancer for many years. I have a need to hire some folks to support some project work I am doing elsewhere. Is there a way to have the same email address for a freelancer and client account? So far I am not finding it. 


And no, I am not trying to hire myself. This is a legit need.

It's a little hard to spot, but all you have to do is click on settings (in the dropdown up by your name) and then you'll see a little green link at the bottom of the left sidebar that says "Create a Company"
