About This Expert

Fran Hauser is a leading career expert and vocal champion of women in the workplace. She has spoken at over 200 organizations, including Meta, Google, Unilever, Blackrock, NPR, Mastercard, and The Conference for Women. As a former Fortune 500 executive and active start-up investor – who has funded over 30 female-founded companies – Fran’s insights have appeared in media outlets including Fortune, CNBC, Fast Company, Elle, Refinery29, and Business Insider.

Fran is also the author of two books that have been hailed as modern-day bibles for professional women striving to create careers they love while staying true to themselves. The Myth of the Nice Girl (2018, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) has been translated into eight languages and earned the prestigious title of “Best Business Book of the Year, 2018” by Audible. Its runaway success formed the catalyst for her acclaimed thought-leadership platform. The follow-up workbook Embrace the Work, Love Your Career (2022, Collective Book Studio) has become the go-to curriculum for women’s affinity groups nationwide.

Fran’s own publishing journey proved so rewarding that she created Bookbound, a consultancy dedicated to launching female non-fiction authors. She’s also the co-host of the Bookbound podcast, a behind-the-scenes guide to getting published.

Fran’s current work is informed by 15 years spent in media, from startups where she played an integral role in the $525mm sale of Moviefone to AOL, to ultimately rising the ranks at Time Inc. to President of Digital, where she led innovation, acquisitions and digital expansion for powerhouse media brands People, InStyle, Entertainment Weekly, Essence, and People en Espanol.

Fran serves on the board of directors of the Foundation for Bedford Central Schools and is an advisor to and LiveGirl. She lives outside NYC with her husband, two sons, and beloved mini Goldendoodle.
