it's going to be hard work. It's going to be long hours. If you have a family move closer to work so the time away from the family won't impact that work life balance.

After working at Microsoft for14 years, I feel like I have done a lot of great things in my career here. I wish I had spent more time building more mentoring relationships and keeping my network of people and coworkers ripe and active. I would have specifically sought out a strong female who could coach and mentor me.

Relax. Give yourself a year to learn and get your footing. When your manager assigns you an area to cover, reach out to others to learn everything you can about it. Ask everyone you talk with to suggest another person to talk to. If the conversation goes well and you like the person, ask them if you can meet again at some later date to review your work and get advice. Once you feel comfortable, don't limit yourself to what you're assigned to do -- seek out projects, offer to help others, if you are passionate about something, do it. That's the best kept secret around here: if you tell enough people you're working on something, eventually you will be -- just make sure it falls within your org's product/goals/vision. Have fun and connect with others. It'l be great!

Make the most of your experience but don't be afraid to say 'no'... the extra work you take on may not be worth it.
