Randi Bussin is the Founder and President, Aspire! She is a career reinvention “strategist,” a rare quality that distinguishes her from other career coaches. She thrives on partnering with bright and successful New Englanders seeking more meaningful work aligned with their values, and reignites the internal spark and passion that has been dimmed by their current professional role. She guides them to gain clarity, a renewed sense of direction, and an actionable career reinvention plan. Reinvention could be an entirely new career, a new job more closely aligned with one’s values, an entrepreneurial pursuit based upon a passion, or a retirement game plan.
Randi’s personal story is one of gutsy and enterprising reinvention and renewal. With a newly minted graduate degree in Romance Languages, Randi ventured into high technology marketing, driven by the excitement and growth potential of the industry. Spurred by the growth of technology in Europe and a passion for global business, she set off to Paris to redefine herself and earn an MBA from one of the world’s top international business schools, INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France. She worked in Paris for the next 10 years, savoring the food, the culture, and the local sights and sounds.
After 15 years in the technology industry, Randi became disillusioned with the industry’s frenetic pace, lack of creativity, and sole focus on profits. At this point, she left corporate America to launch her first company–an international strategy consulting firm. Trilogie Consultants helped to launch U.S. technology firms into international markets.
Ten years into this entrepreneurial pursuit, Randi felt plagued by work-life balance issues and became more passionate about helping others enrich their lives and find their passion. At this point, Randi embarked on a journey of self-discovery, learning that she was gifted and motivated in helping and inspiring others to lead their lives anchored by passion, meaning, and balance. After spending four years as an MBA career counselor in higher education, she launched her coaching practice.
