About Gimcrack

What is Gimcrack?

Merriam-Webster defines Gimcrack as:

noun · gim·crack  ·  ˈjim-ˌkrak \

a showy object of little use or value

This website is exactly what the name “Gimcrack” means.  There’s not much to it.  A bunch silly pictures in boxes peppered with a few self-indulgent ramblings that attempt to find some humor in this “entrepreneur/start-up/side-hustle/self-improvement/productivity/social media/SEO/life-coaching/digital marketing/blah, blah, blah…” space we all seem to be in.  No value bombs here, but maybe a few f-bombs.

Who The Heck Are You?

My name is Mike Schlosky and I am an average guy who likes to write and draw.  I’ve been told I have a good sense of humor too.  I’m smitten with the digital age we are in and the new economy that is emerging.  I’m also a lifelong self-improvement and productivity junkie.  I was rocking those Anthony Robbins tapes toting around a Franklin/Covey Planner back in the ’90s–I’m a legit OG success guy.

There is absolutely nothing that gives me any credibility in the “entrepreneur/start-up/self-improvement/productivity/social media/SEO/life-coaching/digital marketing/blah, blah, blah…” space which, I think, puts me on the same level as about 93% of the people who claim they have credibility in the “entrepreneur/start-up/self-improvement/productivity/social media/SEO/life-coaching/digital marketing/blah, blah, blah…” space.  I’m really just the average American underachiever who has a website, a Twitter account, and something semi-coherent to say.

Why Should I Care?

The truth is you probably shouldn’t.  Just like you probably shouldn’t care about memes with the “Most Interesting Man in the World” from the Dos Equis commercials.  Its just fun and entertaining–a nice break from all this hustling, grinding, and faking it till we make it.

This website won’t change your life.  I’m not going to tell you how to get rich.  I don’t have any courses on how to create a viral video in five easy steps.  There are no cornerstone content, 5000 word mega-posts here.

But I do have a few funny things to say and few funny pictures which may be worth a few minutes of your time.
