Calling all nice girls — yes, you! We’re diving into the conflicted relationship women have with being nice — especially in the workplace — with the ultimate nice girl (and our new girl crush), Fran Hauser. She’s out with her first book, “The Myth of the Nice Girl: Achieving a Career You Love Without Becoming a Person You Hate.” It’s important, because it’s a fine line to walk.

She’s proof that you can be nice and successful simultaneously and she’s here to teach us how.
