  Youngest CEO: Harli Jordean sets world record

 
LONDON, UK -- Harli Jordean, 8, from Stoke Newington, London, has been running his successful website marbleking.co.uk for two years, selling tubs of the glass toys to £599 limited edition Duke of York solitaire tables , setting the world record for the Youngest CEO, according to World Record Academy (www.worldrecordacademy.com).

  The Guinness world record for the youngest stock car racer was set by Amanda 'A.K' Stroud (USA) who was a regular competitor in the Papa John's Pizza Pro-Cup racing division at Hickory Motor Speedway, North Carolina, USA, aged 12.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the youngest undergraduate, set by Michael Kearney who started studying for an Associate of Science degree at Santa Rosa Junior College, California, USA, at the age of 6 years 7 months.

  The World's Youngest CEO has been running the successful website – marbleking.co.uk – for two years and, when he's not playing with his friends, the tiny tycoon spends all his spare time buying stock, handling orders and liaising with suppliers.
  
   The mini mogul spends his spare time buying stock, processing orders and liasing with suppliers for his website www.marbleking.co.uk.

  The business is now turning over thousands of pounds and demand for products is so high that Harli has had to recruit help from his mum and two older brothers.

   Harli, from Stoke Newington, London, said: "I like having my own company. I like being the boss."

  The tiny tycoon found his flair for trading when he swapped marbles with his friends at school, reportd The Daily Mirror.

  But when some older schoolkids took all his stock, Harli turned to his mum, Tina, to help him buy some more from the internet.

  After struggling to find what he wanted online, Harli begged her to start his own webiste and within months, orders were flooding in from around the world.

  A simple tub of marbles at Marble King goes for 7.99 pounds (S$16.40), while a limited edition Duke of York solitaire tables can set you back 599 pounds.

  In an interview with The Sun, his mum, Tina said: "Harli has been obsessed with marbles ever since he was six.

 "His obsession became so big we started calling him the Marble King - so when he wanted to set up a website it was the natural name for it.

 "I never thought it would become so popular - we are struggling to cope with the number of orders at times. "I helped him set up the site, but he's now trading with the world instead of just the playground all on his own, he has a hand in everything.

 "As a boss he is very amenable and has his own ideas of how to do things."

  The ambitious little boy now dreams of expanding his business, and has even created his own brand of marbles, which are made in China and sold on his website.
