Congratulations Don, I am sure you will be successful in your new position.
My suggestion is to be a "can do" kind of person. When asked to do something
slightly different (marketing proposal, etc) worry later about how to do it,
be positive in the present.
Always worked for me.
Best of luck in your new position!
