Advice for others...
Don't be afraid to ask for help from your employer. If you're the right fit for the job, they will want you to succeed. Also make sure you are being included in what's going on in the business, if there is anything that you aren't apart of then talk to your employer/coworkers to ask your opinion on the matter.
