Who Am I?


Millennial. Creative. Foodie. Nerd. 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 East 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. 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?


Solopreneur, Techie & Creator

I’m a code-writing, pixel-pushing, content-creating, Apple-loving, creative. Being multi-talented, I do a lot of things, but I mostly focus on these projects:

Branding, Websites & Digital Content Services

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

Branding, Tech & Work-Life Balance Blog for Solopreneurs

“Brand. Tech. Life.” is a social learning community I created to help fellow Solopreneurs and SMEs on similar journeys of building a strong personal brand online, mastering tech in everyday life, and creating their dream life. 

Other Hobby & Interest Side Projects

Outside of the features projects that you see here, I occasionally work on other hobby & interest projects. Check out my Now page to see what I’m up to!

My mission is to educate and entertain all those within my reach by sharing my knowledge and experiences

Eat. Nerd. Create.


My Lifestyle Blog

Starting A New Journaling Habit

If you ask me, I’m a creative through and through, so I’d think that I identify more with being a ‘Type B’ personality. To my surprise, I was proven to be wrong. After taking numerous tests, I’m a ‘Type A’ personality without a doubt.  As a ‘Type A’ personality,...

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.
