(INDEPENDENCE, OHIO – October 29, 2018)–The largest international non-profit association for business brokers, the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA), today announced the release of its new podcast, “The Real Deal.” Geared to business brokers, business buyers and business sellers, “The Real Deal” offers fascinating stories, helpful tips and insightful tales from experts in the business buying and selling industry.

“Whether you’re a business broker, own your own business, or are looking to buy a business, this podcast will help you learn about the buying and selling process, financing strategies, business valuations and more,” explained Kylene Golubski, Executive Director of the IBBA. “One of the goals of the IBBA is to provide educational resources such as this podcast to our members, equipping them to be even more successful in this profession. Anyone in the public can actually access the podcast, whether or not you’re an IBBA member or even a business broker. We believe that listeners in other industries, such as sales, marketing, finance or legal, are also going to find this podcast insightful and entertaining.”

Twenty-year industry professional, Managing Partner of Calder Associates and past chairman of the IBBA, Cress V. Diglio, is host of the podcast, leading passionate conversations between some of the best business brokers in the world and other distinguished guests. “It’s really such a fun experience getting to share the always-true, sometimes-crazy, stories of business sales,” said Diglio. “The guests have such extensive and diverse backgrounds, including a skeptic business seller turned broker, and they all provide some really interesting stories and practical insight.”

Season one episodes include “Myths and Misconceptions About Buying a Business,” “Blindsided: Surprising Reasons Deals Don’t Close” and “Deal or No Deal: When to Walk Away.”
