I'm Alyssa Dver.

Confidence Crusader. Neuro Nerd. Success Equalizer.


I wish I knew sooner that confidence is learned but not by faking it or by hearing someone else’s hero story.
I know now that confidence isn’t a result of success – it’s a requirement for it. It is a learned skill and often more important than being competent.
Using modern brain science, now we can learn how to be confident by building desired neural pathways that allow us to confidently think and behave.
Confidence is everyone’s choice and superpower.
My mission is to empower others with this life-changing knowledge so they, too, can help others be their confident best. I hope you’ll choose to join me in bringing more confidence to the world.

My Why


In 2008, my older son was diagnosed with a lifelong neurological disability that was predicted to leave him paraplegic.
Thankfully, I simply refused to accept the senseless medical advice I was getting from respected but narrowly trained experts. With only my marketing credentials, I pursued neurological, psychological, and sociological research.
I studied Eastern and Western techniques and talked to both patients and practitioners around the world to validate my cross-disciplinary discoveries. The experts soon started to ask for my advice.
Scientifically we know that confidence isn’t inherited, earned or faked. It’s a learned skill, a decision, a choice – and something anyone can master.
My amazing son and over 350,000+ confidence-empowered people prove it.

Using brain science to give highly competent people equal confidence.

Using science, data, a little humor and total honesty, I teach growth-minded people how to be who they really can and want to be.
