America “You gon suck it or not”?

Posted: September 6, 2016 by JDM aka JACKIE SPEAKS in DRAMA, LIFE, MEDIA, MUSIC, NEW YORK, NEWS, PEOPLE, politics, Uncategorized, weirdnews

In the wake of NFL star Colin Kaepernick’s decision to remain seated during “The Star Spangled Banner” to protest racial injustice, there is renewed interest in the United States’ national anthem. Now, a hip-hop fan named Dero Anthony has come up with his or her own way of changing the conversation around our country’s official song. Anthony has started a petition to drop the two-century-old Francis Scott Key number and replace it with the Diplomats’ classic “Dipset Anthem.”

“The current National Anthem is BS,” reads Anthony’s plea. And…that’s it. No further explanation is given, nor is it required. 

The petition has 974 signatures as of this writing, out of its stated goal of 10,000,000. <— This via Associated Press and COMPLEX mag 

All this can lead us to wonder is, will America be chanting “You gon suck it or not”? .. If you have heard the Dipset Anthem it is pretty vulgar and comical. Would you want this to be America’s National Anthem? All jokes aside.-Jdm

While I am up on an opposite sleep schedule I want to take the time to say that I enjoyed working with, learning from, and teaching others in this industry since 2003/2005. So many levels to this. I made sure to invest in myself, my skill-set, and my craftsmanship and artistry my whole life. I only respect others who know the grind, and have shed blood sweat and tears for what they believe in. I don’t congratulate lazy or self proclaimed people, never fuel that mess!. I was injured about four years ago and underwent 3 surgeries and countless procedures. Prior to that, I had other health scares and issues that required surgery or medical care. I have always worked through everything, and gone above and beyond for others as well as my own passions. Never asking for anything in return. I believe in the culture of art, music, entertainment, and film. most importantly I believe in myself. I live every day as productively as possible, so when I have an opportunity I TAKE IT. When I was bed bound for a few years and in doctors 24/7 I had to make a decision. Do I let this conquer my life? Do I let depression and anger over situations I cannot control ruin everything I worked so hard for? NO. I chose to focus on better health, and managing my pain and obligations and begin re-creating my path again. Just because I haven’t been VISUALLY SEEN doesn’t mean that I ever stopped living for my dreams and those I love.
If you have ever had a time where you thought the world was crushing you, and you felt cornered or wanted to give up but didn’t…I want to hear from you. I want to begin having these conversations. I need to speak to the people who need to be uplifted, or can possibly enlighten and uplift others. I want to help you share your testimonial.
This is my testimonial, and this is the bare minimum of everything I went through and am still going through.
I love everyone who loves me, and I support you!. If you have a goal, it is best to make plans to achieve it. Don’t ignore what your heart is screaming for! – Jackie also known as Mivida JDM

I haven’t been blogging here in quite some time. I used to blog religiously. Unfortunately several years ago I suffered a traumatic injury and have been off the grid. to this day I am still rehabilitating certain parts from injury. It doesn’t mean you still won’t catch these hands tho! LOL. Anyway, I want to begin bringing back the content when I can.

Stay Tuned.

Feel free to write me, and whatever content you’re searching for I gotcha!

Throughout my journey in life I will always remain true to the culture, and my love for it and all of you.




Indeed you might ask, how can an entrepreneur need advice from a fellow entrepreneur?

Well I will answer; because not all of the ones out have life and or business experience.

That being said I would like to share a few thoughts that may help others that currently freelance, own a small or large business, or are in plans to do so.

First bit of advice is regarding FOUNDATION!

In order to build yourself in your field you need to have a strong foundation, much like a house. if you’re weak you will need to be strong.

Your team reflects highly of who you are. You must also have a strong team.

Together you will excel and be able to meet your business goals and satisfy the goals in your business relationships.

Second; you need to have GOALS in order to meet them right?

Think about what drives you?, what motivates you? Then think about how you can achieve everything necessary to meet the goals you set. GOOD now that you’ve done so LISTEN UP.


If you want to be a professional be a damn good one. Research your profession or craft, invest in the thing that you need.

Things I advise are but not limited to; formal training in your craft or line of business, tools required such as software programs to utilize or equipment and or instruments if your profession requires them.

For example:

If you’re an actor take classes, obtain experience on set and off set (volunteer, network, and expand your knowledge while doing so) to then pursue paid work. Purchase different wardrobe options so that you may submit for different castings (nurse, doctor, cop, fireman, lawyer, etc) It will land you more options.

Obtain as much EXPERIENCE as you can, you will then be in high demand. In ANY form of business, this is important.

That being said, expanding on that need for experience in all businesses you can establish and maintain internships or apprenticeships where eventually you can then get a job referral based on the “show and prove” method. Show your WORK ETHIC prove you’re worthy.

Once you’ve established your existence in your business community begin to think about your next steps.

How can I create a steady income?

How can I obtain the tools I need for my goals moving forward?

Who can I offer my business to and how do I do so?



Protect yourself.

Protect your content.

What do I mean by “protect yourself and your content” ?

Obtain all individuals needed that will protect you and your business.

Lawyers specific to your business.

Legal ownership and rights to your content, so that all are protected.

and more.


-This is a small portion of my advice to anyone who is an entrepreneur. For more details, to ask me questions, or to seek referrals for anything i mentioned, please feel free to write me a message I will reply.

Thanks for reading!

Boscia review 

Posted: February 27, 2015 by JDM aka JACKIE SPEAKS in Uncategorized

I use various products to keep skin feeling hydrated and healthy. I also eat as clean as possible (except today I’m having mangu because it’s Dominican Independence Day) lol. Anyway… I always post my favorites up with a review. After finally trying the Boscia line of facial masks I invested in a full size of the cool blue and an eye balm. The mask gives an immediate feeling of hydration and cleanliness and you can feel it literally cool down your skin. The eye balm does the same- it is a roll on balm, and brings down the swelling or puffiness in eye area fairly quickly. I suffer from lack of sleep and a lot of stress which can lead to puffy or dark eyes on a frequent basis. These products are definitely helpful and amazing in my opinion. No need to overuse, you can do the mask one or two times a week and be just fine. #bosciafacemask #boscia #bosciaeyebalm #coolblue #mividajdm #mividajdmreviews

Tips for makeup shopaholics 

Posted: February 24, 2015 by JDM aka JACKIE SPEAKS in Uncategorized

Tip #1: all mac and sephora stores HAVE ability to give you samples of most of the products before you buy them (stock up on sample goodies)

 Tip #2: go to for coupon and promo codes when ordering online 

Tip #3 become a member of sephora and or any other retail / store that has a bonus program .. The more you go there the more free and cool stuff u get- sometimes full size products not minis, Tip #4 buy holiday / gift sets /limited edition – more for your buck! 

Tip #5: pharmacy sales – rack up when the bogo or high % off sales happen, many good and economic brands are in pharmacies such as revlon, rimmel, maybelline, cover girl and more ! …

Tip #6: swap! Chat with fellow makeup lovers and see if you can swap products, many ppl get samples thy never use or mini versions of products through different companies.. You can swap for brand new or gently used. Just clean your brushes and makeup before use (alcohol to replenish makeup- just a little) and warm water + brush cleaner or good old shampoo on your brushes and dry flat! 

More to come, ask me and I will reply 😘 -jdm #mividajdm
