Your Side Gig Isn’t My Concern

It seems that almost everyone has a side gig these days – some other job or venture on the side. Maybe it’s to help make ends meet, or maybe it’s in hopes of transitioning entirely to that as your “real” job.  The reasons and types of side gigs are as varied as the people who have them, but they seem to have one major issue in common; they try to use the (already angry) admin from their “real” job for their side gig.
Your “real job” admin isn’t paid to take messages, schedule meetings, or perform any clerical work for your side gig.  Therefore, it is just plain wrong to expect them to do any of those things. 
Don’t!  Don’t do it, don’t even think about doing it.  It breeds a whole new level of anger that you really don’t want directed at you, and you definitely don’t want to find all of the difficult clients on your “real job” sent your way because you enraged your admin.
