June 2, 2022 / Mom &… Podcast Episode 73 / Guest: Fran Hauser
As two Obligers and Enneagram Nines, we are so happy to know Fran Hauser. In this episode we talk through why it’s good to be nice at work, but also how to advocate for yourself. In her new book, “Embrace the Work, Love Your Career”, Fran Hauser encourages women to figure out who they are, what they love, and where they add value at work, so that they can love their careers instead of resenting the work.
If you’re feeling stuck at work, or if you’re ready to make a change but aren’t sure what that change should be, this episode is for you.
