Fran Hauser is a long-time media executive, startup investor and celebrated champion of women and girls. Best known for her role building – one of the biggest media brands online – Hauser made the leap to early stage investing in 2014, funding and advising consumer-focused companies such as HelloGiggles, Mogul, The Wing and Gem&Bolt. 18 of the 20 companies in Hauser’s portfolio are founded by women, highlighting her broader commitment to increasing the representation of female founders and investors.

Hauser’s first book, The Myth of the Nice Girl deconstructs the negative perception of “niceness” that many women struggle with in the business world and will resonate with smart, professional women who are looking for real advice to take their career to the next level. Hauser proves that women don’t have to sacrifice their values or hide their authentic personalities to be successful. Sharing a wealth of personal anecdotes and time-tested strategies, she shows women how to reclaim “nice” and sidestep regressive stereotypes about what a strong leader looks like. Her accessible advice and hard-won wisdom detail how to balance being empathetic with being decisive, how to rise above the double standards that can box you in, how to cultivate authentic confidence that projects throughout a room, and much more.
