It's a tough industry; it does take time and work to get your name out there and build momentum. But if taken the right way, putting creative work up for judgment is one of the best tools an artist can have. Spit Fyre says, "It doesn't matter what you do, there will always be someone who finds a fault, especially when you are in a subjective field, like making art. Just focus on the bigger picture!" Dealing with criticism is just part of putting yourself out there as an artist.

Creating Good Content

Being a vocalist, quality time spent on Making music is really important. Improvise with different techniques. Develop your voice as an instrument and embrace every opportunity you get. Cultivating a reputation for being well-rounded, multi-talented performers, many Artists can grab more opportunities themselves than Making music alone would have afforded them.
