Who Am I?


Millennial. Creative. Foodie. Techie. Dog Mom.

My name is Desiree’ M. Slaughter, but I prefer to go by Desi (Des-zee).

A 90’s girl from Detroit, MI who loves food, tech, learning new things, creating, and experiencing life in new ways. Currently, I’m living in Lansing, MI with my fur-baby, Bandit, trying to accomplish my dreams while cluelessly navigating this thing called LIFE.

Each day, I wake up with a passion to learn, grow as a person, build wealth, make a positive impact on the world, and inspire others. Being a Capricorn, I’m a worker bee, so I get lost in my work easily. When I’m not working or on the computer creating content and websites, you can usually find me at home, if I’m not at social events, cooking, traveling, or creating new memories with friends and family.

I believe that you should live life to the fullest and be your most authentic self — and in the 21st century, you can make a living from just that! This is why my ultimate goal is to use tech and the Internet to make a living from being me! The blogs and businesses I run allow me to tell my story, share my experiences, and help others along the way.

What I Do?


Creative Professional, Solopreneur, Digital Creator

I’m a code-writing, pixel-pushing, content-creating, Apple-loving, creative that knows all the best tools. Being multi-talented, I do a lot of things, but I mostly do the following:

Offering Branding, Website & Digital Strategy Services

Through my studio, Brand & Press, I help service-based solopreneurs and SMEs (like me!) build successful personal and business brands by blending design, strategy, and tech into a kick-ass structure that they can manage themselves.

Using design, tech & strategy as a full-time Creative Professional

As a full-time Content Marketer, I create WordPress websites and translate abstract public policy concepts into compelling, digestible content across various digital channels to support the work of my employer and its clients.

Sharing my journey to inspire & educate as a Digital Creator

As I’m building my brand and chasing my dreams, I’m using my online presence to tell my story & help others with what I learn by sharing my experiences.

What I’m Doing Now…

I keep this post updated with an overview of what I’ve got going on at the moment. INSPIRED BY DEREK SIVERS’ NOW PAGE.

Let’s Connect Online!

In recent years, I haven’t been online much, but as my connections grow, my goal is to  post daily and engage with like-minded people online. I want to talk to all you creatives, brand owners, solopreneurs, foodies, college students, and nerds!

If you’d like to follow along with or can relate to the journey of an early 30-something-year-old woman that’s cluelessly adulting, or want to be social, let’s connect! Along with my personal experiences, you can expect me to share a mix of helpful and inspirational content about food, creativity, the latest tech, personal branding, and other things that I might find worthy of sharing.

You can find me pretty much anywhere online as @desimslaughter.
