Fran Hauser and Hayley recorded this episode back in April, before both of their book launches. They discuss Fran's book, The Myth of the Nice Girl, and how NICE is Fran's superpower. Once Fran accepted her authentic 'nice' self, she gained more confidence and freed up her time because she was no longer focused on trying to be something she's not. Fran shares great insights from her time in Time Inc's corner office as the President of Digital to her side hustle turned new business of investing in start ups and supporting women in business.
