From plumbing to hairdressing, there are some jobs that just lend themselves to being more useful than others when it comes to our everyday lives. For example, it is unlikely that data analysts are called in by their mates on the weekend to pour over some stats. Whereas we’d bet that every builder has been asked by a friend or family member to ‘do a quick favour’.
Of course, for most of us, helping our friends and family is a no-brainer and if you can help someone out, then why not? However, the problems arise when doing a favour means turning down paying work.
