Now she’s back with a tactical workbook, Embrace the Work, Love Your Career, which is quickly becoming the go-to for women seeking more joy and fulfillment in their careers. Fran has pivoted in her career from accounting to media to start-up investing. Her passion lies in leveling the playing field for women through her roles of investing, writing, and speaking.

Much of her current work is informed by 15 years spent in media, where she rose through the ranks at Time Inc. to President of Digital. In this episode, Fran shares the importance of creating a “smile file,” having workplace champions, and why you need to build out a diverse network. She also warns about not falling prey to “distractors” at work. As an introvert, Fran shares some valuable advice on how to network, why you need to speak up no matter where you are in your career, and so much more.

Untangle

Today’s guest is one of my favorite people in the world. She’s a dear friend… in addition to being a former media executive, angel investor, mentor to hundreds of young women, and now the author of two amazing books. Her first book was a best seller and is called “The Myth of the Nice Girl.” Her recent book is called "Embrace the Work, Love Your Career: A Guided Workbook for Realizing Your Career Goals with Clarity, Intention, and Confidence". This workbook is intended to help women get the most out of their careers and is chock full of advice, strategies, creative prompts, and thoughtful exercises designed to mix action with reflection as you build your plan. I love the meditations and coloring book features that are included to help pause and settle.This holistic mix of actionable tools inspires us to focus on the big things that truly matter so that we can each reach our full potential. One of her supporters says it perfectly; “This book is more than a must-read. It’s a must experience for any woman who wants to clarify her purpose and create an action plan to manifest personally and professionally.“

How to level-set priorities in your life & career! Fran Hauser (Episode 198) Part 2 of 2

She Said / She Said

SHOW NOTES EPISODE 198 TITLE: How to level-set priorities in your life and career! GUEST: FRAN HAUSER [part 2 of 2] TOPIC: Ever have trouble carving out time to strategize about your life, career, or a pivot you’re contemplating? Or maybe, once you do carve out the time, you aren’t sure how to structure that time so that you get the biggest return on your investment? What questions should you ask yourself? How much time should you spend? How often should you do this?  Building in time for reflection and making it a regular habit or practice, is key to not only managing yourself, but to making sure that where you are spending your time is helping you move closer to the goals and/or the priorities that are most important to you. We don’t always think about reflection and time management as elements needed to build influence, and yet, without those practices in place, it’s really difficult to navigate all the competing demands on your time so that you can truly prioritize what’s most important while also helping you build and sustain influence in the process.  This week, episode 198 is part two of a two-part conversation with startup investor, adviser, best-selling author (and renowned nice girl) Fran Hauser. If you missed part one, be sure and check it out here: Episode 197 About Fran:  Fran Hauser is a startup investor and adviser who is focused on leveling the playing field for women by sharing all that she’s learned in her incredibly varied career.

She’s the author of “The Myth of the Nice Girl: Achieving a Career You Love Without Becoming a Person You Hate.” The book has been translated into six languages and was named “Best Business Book of the Year in 2018” by Audible. Fran’s new book: Embrace the Work, Love Your Career” is a workbook for women seeking more joy and fulfillment in their career.  Fran started her career in public accounting at PwC, moved into finance at Coca Cola, then to Movie Phone, onto AOL/Time Warner, and then into a series of high profile media positions at People, InStyle, Entertainment Weekly. At the peak of her corporate media career, she opted to strike out on her own to coach, mentor and invest in countless female founded companies (you’ve met a few of those founders on this podcast!)

How “nice” can be a differentiating skill for career success! Fran Hauser, Episode 197 [Part 1 of 2]

She Said / She Said

Title: How “nice” can be a differentiating skill for career success! SHOW NOTES EPISODE 197 [part 1 of 2] GUEST: FRAN HAUSER, author, startup investor and adviser TOPIC:  Have you ever had someone tell you “you’re just too nice,” and they didn’t mean it as a compliment? Or maybe you worry that you’ve tried to overcompensate at times for the fact that you actually are incredibly nice, but if you let that show, you won’t be taken seriously at work or with clients?  This topic has always been a bigger challenge for women. Getting the balance right between going the extra mile to care about colleagues and to show some vulnerability v. being a pushover can be challenging to navigate, especially if you struggle with “people pleasing.” By the way, “people pleasing” should not be confused with “nice” or adding real value at work. They are not the same thing. This week’s guest is the perfect person to help us break all of this down, while sharing what she’s learned over her distinguished career by being legitimate nice girl. The power of nice can indeed be a differentiating, timeless quality and one that has a great deal to do with building and sustaining influence in our lives and careers.  THIS WEEK’S GUEST:   Fran Hauser is a startup investor and adviser who is focused on leveling the playing field for women by sharing all that she’s learned in her incredibly varied career.
