Delicate Blossom:  This marketing and PR gig is one of the "toughest" sales jobs around.  There are so many intangibles and many do not affect the bottom line of organizations.  The metrics are what one would call "squisshy" at best.  This is like selling air...one never really knows how much is enough.  Maybe that's why the award is an Anvil, cause you get so beat up trying and your head gets hard!

@Annoddah_Dave LOL thank you for the recognition! Actually the "anvil" was created to signify the hard work that goes into creating good PR programs.
