Hi, I’m Desi. 🙋🏾‍♀️
Again, thank you for joining my email list! It honestly means so much to me that you’ve chosen to share a tiny spot in your inbox with me! The purpose of this email is to introduce myself to you and set expectations for what you can expect in this newsletter.

Hey, friend!
I’m so stoked that you are here (on my mailing list)!
I just wanted to say hi and give you a very warm welcome! If you’re reading this, you probably don’t know much about me just yet, but that is about to change!
In this email, I will introduce myself to you and set expectations for what you can expect in this newsletter.
1.) Who am I?
Hey! friendly wave My name is Desiree’ Slaughter, but I pretty much go by Desi (most of the time). I’m a creative professional, certified techie, solopreneur, and digital creator from Detroit, MI. 
Through my blog and businesses, I’m building my personal brand, telling my story, sharing the journey of chasing my dreams, and helping others with what I learn.
And because I know how hard it is to associate the emails you get with a real face, here is mine. Yes, I’m an actual person! (And on good days, I even wing my eyeliner.)
Here’s a short bio about me:
Foodie. Techie. Creator. Dog mom. 
My name is Desiree’ Slaughter, but I pretty much go by Desi (most of the time). I’m a creative professional, certified techie, solopreneur, and digital creator.
Detroit girl from the 90’s with many interests, including cooking and eating tasty food, nerding out about tech, and creating whatever I could. I’m a born techie who loves Apple products and can spend hours online for work or just browsing. Being a Capricorn, I’m a worker bee, so I get lost in my work easily. When I’m not working, I’m a homebody, but I like to get out, have fun, and make new memories. 
My goal is to empower, educate, and entertain those within my reach by sharing my personal experiences. Every day, I wake up with the drive to learn, grow as a person, build wealth, make a positive impact on the world and inspire others in business and life. Through my blog and businesses, I’m telling my story, sharing the journey of chasing my dreams, and helping others with what I learn.
You can learn more about me and what I do on my website.

2.) What to expect?
Twice a month, on Monday mornings, I share a newsletter with my subscribers. Just in case you aren’t big on social media or have missed my latest updates, this newsletter is your snapshot into what I’ve got going on and what’s come across my desk!
I also want to note that while some of my emails might be automated, I’m always on the other side of them if you shoose to hit reply.
Here are some key topics that you might see from me…
  • personal blog posts and updates from my blog
  • professional articles and journals from my portfolio
  • the top 10 need-to-know or share-worthy things that I come across (sprinkled in with some fun-to-know stuff)
  • exclusive updates and content before I share it anywhere else
3.) Don’t miss my updates — add me to your contacts!
Every once in a while, someone will inevitably email me to ask about why they didn’t get a certain email/ juicy deal/ freebie that their friend received in their inbox.
This is important!
If my emails aren’t getting through, you’ll miss all my updates, so please take the following simple actions to make sure that nothing slips through the cracks later:
  1. Add my email “hello@desimslaughter.com” to your contacts.
  2. Whitelist all emails from “From Desi’s Desk | by desimslaughter,” “Desi M. Slaughter,” and hello@desimslaughter.com. PRO TIP: You can search for “whitlisting in (EMAIL PROVIDER)” on Google to find the steps specific to your email provider. If you’re on Gmail, you can hover your mouse over my photo and choose the “Add to Contacts” option.
  3. Prioritize my emails in your inbox. If you are a Gmail user or you use any other web-based email that filters broadcast away from your main inbox, be sure to “drag” any emails from me into your Priority Inbox. (Again, you don’t want to miss something.)
  4. Create a special folder for my emails to go AFTER you’ve read them. There is a chance that you could miss an update if you choose to add fileters to automatically direct my emails to the specified folder, so I’d recommend manually saving the issues that you want to keep around in a separate folder in your inbox.
Again, taking these steps ensures that you can receive all of my email updates in the future without any hiccups.
That's all for now!
You’ll hear from me again soon. We’re going to be such great friends — I can feel it! 🥰
What next?
Until we meet here again, here are a few ways that you can keep the ball rollin’ in this relationship…
  1. Connect with me on your favorite social media! I usually share lifestyle, foodie, nerdy, creative, and sometimes commentary content. I’m mostly active on 1, 2, and 3. I’d love to hear from you there too! Find me on most sites @desimslaughter
  2. See what I’m up to by visiting my Now page. I keep this page updated with an overview of what I’ve got going on at the moment. Inspired by Derek Sivers’ “Now Page”
  3. Read my blog, “Eat. Nerd. Create.” This is my corner of the internet where I share my thoughts and experiences, as well as share tips, tricks, and resources on food, technology, creativity, adulting, and the things that make me, ME! 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 navigating life, check it out!
  4. Let’s continue a conversation! Hit reply or (email me) and let me know your name, where you are from, your superpower, how you found me, and share something interesting from your week with me. I’d love to know more about you!
Once again, I’m so honored to have you here! I hope you have a great day ahead!
If you ever have any questions, recommendations, or feedback, please feel free to reach out to me directly via email at hello@desimslaughter.com, or you can shoot me a message on Twitter or Instagram.
