I have a business, and would like to add a secondary e-mail address to my account so that all my business related e-mails head to the secondary address/username.

I don't know how to do that without Google changing my account username to the new one I just entered.

Any suggestions??

    Are you using Google for Work, or just regular Gmail? If the latter, you just need to create a separate Google account. – ale Feb 21 '15 at 14:31

Have you tried adding a filter that would forward all filtered e-mails to the a second account?

First, you must create the secondary email. Add it as a forwarding address in GMail; go to Settings > Forwarding and POP/IMAP. You will need to open this secondary email to verify.

In GMail, go to Settings > Filters and Create a New filter (this is located at the bottom of the filter list). Provide the criteria for the filter and create this filter and on the next option list, select Forward It with your verified forwarding address.
