There can be advantages to working through an agency...

1) Usualy, you can expect your money in regular intervals even when
the client doesn't pay for a 30, 60, or 90 days. The agency absorbs
the difference.

2) Some clients don't deal with self-represented indepenent
agents...they only deal through agencies.

3) Some people can't find the opportunities that agencies can.

You can do well with an agency and you can have problems. You can do
well as an independent, and you can have problems.

What's in common? You can have problems. Deal with the problems.
