It has been amusing to see how people/clients' perceptions have changed since we moved our work to our own place.
The assumption has been we would be willing to work extra hours extra days all of a sudden. Why would that be?
My work hours and days have been relatively unchanged (give or take a few hours) for the past 3 yr - 4 yrs now. When I tell people that now, they seemed surprised.
Maybe it is because I am handling all the administrative stuff it is easy for people to think that I would be willing to go all out and do some extra work, while I was at it anyways. After all I would be getting paid.
The concept of work boundaries comes to play here. I can see the slippery slope that would ensue if I said "sure, come on by".
If anything I have to work harder to maintain my down time more than ever because it is in danger of getting phased out.
