"Does your employer value your services?"
Information Technology (IT) Director:
Be sure that your employer values IT at the level you are comfortable. You don't want to be viewed as a "necessary evil" but as a part of the strategic planning for the future of the entity you are employed by.

"Be ready to wear lot of hats."
Information Technology (IT) Director:
As IT Director of a SMB corporation, be ready to play multiple roles in your company. The key is as you take on multiple roles try find people who can work in your department and eventually take on the roles you acquire during the tenure. If you don't do that, you'll eventually stop growing and will be stuck with day to day repetitive tasks.
