No one is going to know about you unless you promote yourself. Unfortunately, that’s just something you have to realize if you want to be an artist, or get a job.
You can’t get known and certainly not famous living in a rabbit hole; you have to show people your work, your face and exceed their expectations. You have to be consistent and top of mind.
Since no one pays attention to silence it’s your duty to stand up, pick yourself, and make some noise. Confidence is impossible to ignore. Just make sure you can back it up.
