"I had always wanted to start my own business," Abbi Achterberg, owner and founder of Tipping Point Marketing and 2002 graduate of DePauw University, tells the Indianapolis Star. "I had some contacts and opportunities present themselves at the right time. It was definitely the right decision."

Featured in the newspaper's "Rising Star" feature, "Achterberg, who has a bachelor’s degree in psychology, was introduced to marketing by a contact from DePauw University. The combination of using creativity and understanding business processes grabbed her."  The piece notes, "Tipping Point works with clients to develop marketing campaigns that include blogs, social media, email campaigns, and website design and content."
