WHO I AM...
Hi! I’m Albert A. van Daalen. Born and raised in the province Zeeland of the Netherlands in Europe. I studied theology, philosophy, and business administration with a minor in corporate finance. I worked as a vocational educator, (inter)church administrator (operational and financial), advisor (to board and management) and lecturer in the humanities and social sciences (including management and legal issues). From mid-2011 I’m an independent entrepreneur in business and finance. Worldwide.
Intermediary/Advisor in corporate finance and real estate for businesses and institutions
Since that time, as a business and finance professional, I focus on global intermediary and advisory in capital sources between capital seekers and capital providers for businesses and institutions. The money comes from banks or bonds issues, equity participation of investors, venture capital funds or other non-bank sources of capital, Upon request, I added real estate to my intermediary business over time. My real estate intermediary focuses primarily on the business market, social and commercial real estate, hotels and resorts, for example.
Teamwork when the case requires it
Depending on the case I form a team of independent experts in corporate finance, real estate, and/or other necessary disciplines, to execute your assignment professionally. We charge you an upfront fee per billable hour or fixed fee plus expenses (such as travel, lodging) that are agreed with you in advance. We only accept your assignments if you are willing and able to pay retainers, successes, and ancillary expenses.
(Freelance) Writer and Online Tutor
After a few years I wanted to resume the practice of science. This time as a (freelance) writer about everything related to humanities and social sciences. Mid-2017 I wrote my first articles and a guide to good governance. Soon I received my first assignments for drafting documents for law and rules in corporations and editing grant application before they are submitted to governments. That is why I'm available as an intermediary/advisor and writer. To share my knowledge and own experiences as an entrepreneur and (non) executive, I started my online learning business in 2019. I discuss cases in the field of practical management about what people want to know.
"Failure is success in progress" (Albert Einstein)
Entrepreneurs are constantly looking for solutions and alternative ways or doing everything. And crucially, an entrepreneur doesn't give a damn about failure because he or she knows that failure is in fact, discovery. Some entrepreneurs stated, "The only way I will know if something works is doing it and that means doing what seems impossible or unlikely." Entrepreneurs are comfortable with failure, almost enjoying it, of course as far as clients are not disadvantaged. This is because every experience, positive or negative tells us something. If we are working in a specific area of expertise, corporate finance, real estate, for example, our experiences of doing will become a rich mixture of interconnected successes and failures. I have experienced it myself in my intermediary business.
Unbiased, professional advice and support
Those experiences are involved in my expertise as a professional in business and finance. The result is that I'm able to give unbiased, professional advice and support that is always in the best interest of my clients.
