What’s the TL;DR? 1. I’m challenging a common stereotype about having money and wanting money. 2. Up on YouTube: a new guided meditation/sleep story about attracting wealth, specifically, millions.

Last week I led a workshop for a team at eBay, and one of the things we talked about was building resilience for when things inevitably don’t go the way we want them too; whether that’s not getting the job, the project, or the relationship.

At first we thought we’d be home for three weeks…then six weeks…and you all […]
Last summer I was honored to be named a “2022 Woman of Influence” by The Silicon Valley Business Journal, and this week I’ll be one of the mentors at their “Mentoring Monday” event. And, guess what…they’ve just given me three complimentary tickets to share with you! If you’re able to attend this event in San […]

We meet in a small group; it is live, 2 hours, and interactive. If you’d like to join the next one, join the waitlist here: nicolebensen.com/remarkable FAQs: Know someone who […]
Do you know anyone who’s been impacted by a layoff recently? Friday was a funky day as my previous employer, Google, announced they’re laying off many folks, reportedly 12,000, and I have a lot of friends there.
