Basic rule: assume anyone you've heard of will not be interested in anyone they haven't heard of.
Basic rule: cream rises
Basic rule: you have to be famous to get famous
Anything outside of that is a fairytale
Basic rule: fairys don't exist
Do what you do, get really good at it so you become famous from your own steam. Then people will want to know you and you have the chance to get properly famous.
Basic rule: don't bitch or no one will let you in / don't bitch or people will throw you out.
I hope somewhere in there are some clues for you. Sadly not all of us are going to get famous. Some of us make our peace with that. Some don't and leave the game.
