Dr. Brent Mayabb is currently the Global Chief Medical Officer for Royal Canin, where he’s responsible for being the medical liaison between Royal Canin and large multi-hospital veterinary practice groups around the globe. He joined Royal Canin USA back in May 2004 and has held many jobs in between, including roles in HR and Corporate Affairs, with responsibilities in areas as diverse as public relations and government affairs.

When not working, Brent spends time volunteering at events with the Animal Protective Association of Missouri and is a board member of the Banfield Foundation. He earned his DVM from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine in 1999.

In this follow-up conversation with Dr. Mayabb we discuss:

  • Enrolling in a graduate program in personal finance
  • Why does personal finance matter?
  • The difference between Fiduciary responsibility and suitability, two very different financial planning standards
  • Budgets: The Foundation of Personal Finance
  • Navigating personal finance tough spots
  • “Personal finance is more personal than finance”
  • Bridging the discomfort of having money conversations
