A mom has said that her 10-year-old entrepreneurial daughter is set to retire aged fifteen.
Pixie Curtis might not be old enough for a job yet…
But, she’s already just years away from retirement.
Aged just 10-years-old, Pixie has a lucratively successful accessory and toy businesses with her mom, that if it continues its success will see Pixie through for the rest of her life.
But, people have mixed opinions on her success…
The mother and daughter launched their first company, Pixie’s Bows back in 2011, followed by Pixie’s Fidgets in May this year, the Sun reports.
The 2 companies fall under Pixie’s Pix’s, a website that sells other children’s toys, clothes, and accessories.
In the first month alone that Pixie’s Fidgets was trading, they managed to turn over $200,000.
And that wealth is only expected to grow as the New York Post reports that the duo is estimated to earn $21 million in the next decade.
It’s clear to see that Pixie is doing very well for herself – so well in fact that retirement is already on the cards.
Speaking in a joint interview, Pixie’s mom, Roxy Jacenko, said: “You won’t need to worry, you can retire at fifteen the way you’re going,” the outlet reports.
But, although it might be possible, it doesn’t seem like it’s something Pixie would contemplate as she has so much drive.
“What is the most exciting thing for me is the entrepreneurial spirit that she has at such a young age. I never had it, although it was drummed into me that I had to succeed,” her mom said, the Sun reports.
“When I was 14, I got a job at McDonald’s because that’s what you did back in my day.”
“So, I guess to me the biggest thing is her drive as an entrepreneur. Yes, I’ve enabled it, but she’s still got it, which is for me the most rewarding part.”
That’s pretty impressive!
