With stocks falling, falling, falling it’s hard to believe anyone is on top. Not only are these guys killing it, many had done it before puberty.

Find out how these guys went from geek to chic errr rich at least.

#5. Oleg Bakhmatyuk: The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg

Oleg, only 35-year-old from western Ukraine, is the majority owner of Avangard, Ukraine’s largest producer and exporter of chicken eggs.

Why eggs you might ask? Seems Oleg is counting on charity. He recently moved into eggs and egg products from state gas and oil because he believes businesses will become increasingly interested in feeding the world’s hungry people in the future.

#4. Dustin Moskovitz: One Lucky Bastard

Dustin Moskovitz was Zuckerberg’s Harvard roommate and Facebook’s third employee. Owner of his own company, Asana, since 2008, he amassed a self worth of $2.7 billion during his time at Facebook. Talk about a housing lottery winner!

#3. Yoshikazu Tanaka: The Facebook Coattail Rider

Thirty-four year old Yoshikazu Tanaka has found a way to milk the Facebook cow. Founder of Japan’s largest social networking site, Gree, Tanaka is already worth over $2.2 billion. And he’s set for global expansion starting with a California office. Look out cyber-geeks. Talking to you Zuckerberg.

#2. Mark Zuckerberg: Mr. Request a Friend

Money can’t buy you social skills, you say? I think Mark Zuckerberg might disagree.

Zuckerberg, the 26 year-old popularity obsessed geek, turned his torment to gold with Facebook. The most important social networking site on earth has changed the face of society. Not to mention earned him 13.8 billion U.S. dollars and growing by the friend request approval.

#1. Yusaku Maezawa: Rockstar Retailer

Mr. #1 made his fortune without utilizing social media! Shocker!

Former rock musician, Yusaku Maezawa started a company simply selling CDs and band t-shirts online, which has doubled in value each year since 2005 with over 3 million subscribers.

Zozotown is a wildly-successful e-commerce site set up like a mall, with different shops for different types of fashion and other products that are all sold on consignment. At 35 years old, Maezawa is king kong up in this bitch.
