I've got a desk job for my 9-5 right now.

I'm starting a side hustle, and I want/need to do some sales calls or discovery calls via phone and/or skype to sign up some clients of my own (completely unrelated to my day job)

Has anyone done this? Thoughts on how to make this less disruptive or less noticeable to coworkers and others at the company?

I'm open to all ideas, thoughts, and tips on how to execute this.

I would say try to schedule them before 9 or after 5 if you can. Also, try to schedule them during your lunch break, or if you can, just run out to your car a minute.

Most desk jobs I've worked for, don't mind if you leave to head out to get breakfast or whatever a second. That would be a perfect time to schedule a call. If you don't have an office, I would try and schedule a conference room if you are able for a call if its not too much and people won't notice you going there all the time.

Can you sell to any time zone? I’ve had to pull similar gigs off. I’m in EST so I could crank out like 2-3 hours of sales calls after work if I targeted the west coast.
