Dr. Jackie Mayfield

One of the nation’s foremost advocates of Black business ownership, Dr. Jackie E. Mayfield was born in Bogalusa, Louisiana in 1948. A child of the Civil Rights Movement, he made a lifetime commitment to build and inspire visionaries worldwide, across continents and cultures. Dr. Mayfield has an emphasis on inspiring black men and women to press beyond their level of awareness; whereby breaking down the mental barriers of the 'post slavery syndrome'. And, with working with Dr. Mayfield, I have discovered that this is one issue he takes to heart; and sows his time and resources in.
Being a nationally known empowerment specialist, business consultant, teacher, and trainer; he conducts business and financial empowerment seminars nationwide; all specially designed for individuals who seek a better quality of life. Using his proven “seven steps to building wealth” method; Dr. Mayfield has coached and helped more than four hundred entrepreneurs achieve a greater level of business and financial success in their chosen fields.
Dr. Mayfield is a self-educated man who refuses to stop learning. Dr. Mayfield went on to become one of the nation’s most noted entrepreneurs. He has been self-employed his entire adult life. In 1982, he started ComproTax, with the help of, Craig Johnson and Yusuf Muhammad, building and establishing it into the nation’s largest Black-owned income tax preparation and bookkeeping service in the nation. Now approaching its 38th year in business, ComproTax is a multi-million-dollar business with multiple offices in the Golden Triangle area, and more than one hundred quasi-franchise offices nationwide.

Man of God
As a man who acknowledges that 'God has a calling on my life'; Dr. Mayfield is the principal organizer and guiding force behind the National Black Alliance Network (NBAN), a concept which joined the forces of three Black-owned companies: Dudley Products, MATAH Products and ComproTax. He is also the prime mover behind the Black Millionaires Mentorship Program; and these organizations are a part of a national effort to reduce the dependency of the African American community upon others for jobs. These efforts are designed to produce role-models for self-reliance, self-determination, and economic self-sufficiency for people of African descendant and their families.
