10-year-old entrepreneur set to retire at 15
Early retirement is already on the horizon for a 10-year-old entrepreneur.
Pixie Curtis could be set for life before she even finishes high school thanks to the widely successful accessory and toy businesses that she started with her mom in Sydney, Australia, Stellar Magazine reported.
“You won’t need to worry; you can retire at 15 the way you’re going,” her mother and PR whiz Roxy Jacenko told her daughter in a joint interview, the Sun reported.
The mother-daughter duo first launched Pixie’s Bows in 2011, followed by Pixie’s Fidgets in May, with the two ventures estimated to earn $21 million in the next decade, the outlet said.
In the first month alone, Pixie’s Fidgets sold more than $200,000 worth of products.
Jacenko said the “most rewarding” part of the journey has been watching her daughter’s drive and business acumen.
“What is the most exciting thing for me is the entrepreneurial spirit that she has at such a young age,” she said.
“I never had it, although it was drummed into me that I had to succeed. When I was 14, I got a job at McDonald’s because that’s what you did back in my day,” she said.
Pixie said that she plans to use her earnings to treat her mom to a shopping spree as well as a luxury vacation for the holidays.
“I’m going to get her some new clothes because she has no good clothes at all, and I also want to get her some real hair because she desperately needs hair extensions,” Pixie told the magazine.
“Today, my friend told me his family are going to Paris for Christmas, and I think that’s just wonderful, so I told Mom I think we should go to my favorite place, which is Fiji.”
