Businessmen: Jamie, 14, left, and Adam, 9, have created their own street and skate-wear label. Photo: BEN WATSON Boys mean business By MICHELLE ROBINSON AT JUST nine and 14 years old, two Albany brothers have become businessmen. Adam and Jamie Gordon have put out a line of printed skate- wear t-shirts, caps, beanies and stickers under their label Cred -- meaning credible or credibility. If you can do a trick you've got cred, if you fail and hit a power pole, you don't have cred,'' Jamie, 14, says. He and Adam have been encouraged to start their iconic stick-man brand by their busi- nessman dad Steve. It gives them an interest to do the same things they do at school like research, they don't realise they're researching when they're on the computer looking up skate brands.'' Jamie's school Albany Junior High has also got behind it, with students entering a competition to come up with the logo. Year 9 student Jordan Greer's design was chosen. Mr Gordon says it's great to see his sons' ideas come to fruition. A scribble on a piece of paper's turned into something that some- one thinks is pretty cool.'' The boys have even been approached by people who would like to see them design skateboards, something which they would like to do in future. It's really good and interesting, my friends love it,'' Adam says. The boys have Monday night board meetings with their dad at the dinner table, discussing their tasks for the week ahead. They have learned about pricing and branding to keep their label unique. Jamie even took a day off school recently to source a range of skate parks where they can get out and market Cred. Most kids think business is quite boring, just going around and selling stuff but it's actually a lot of fun.''
