Pixie Curtis, a 10 year old girl who is still in elementary school, is she a genius? I would say that she is a genius that without the help of her mother, she would not be where she is today. Pixie is the creator of Pixie’s Fidgets, which is a toy company that made over $140,000 in the first month and sold out all items within the first 48 hours. Her mother, Roxy Jacenko, helped Pixie launch her idea while still making sure Pixie stays focus on her schooling.
Not only does Pixie own the fidget company, but she is now also an owner of “Pixie’s Bow’s” which is a hair accessory company that her mother set up while she was an infant. Jacenko is the owner of several other successful businesses, hence why she has gave her daughter full ownership of the companies that she originated.
Jacenko said on an interview with new.com.au, “Our family joke has been I’ll be working till I’m 100 and Pixie will have retired at 15 – I certainty know who’s smarter. Now although this opportunity has been very successful as of now in her early career, Pixie’s mother wants to make sure that she puts zero pressure on her daughter that she needs to continue with this. She stated multiple times that as soon as Pixie says she wants out, then she will do whatever she needs to do to get her on a different path. Below is a picture of Pixie and her mother.
Regardless what Pixie decides to do with her life, this is very impressive that she has gotten this far at only 10 years old. Congrats to her and her further journey down life.
