It’s safe to say Pixie Curtis isn’t your typical 10 year old.
Not only is the Sydney schoolgirl the daughter of Roxy Jacenko, but she “can also retire at age 15” if she wishes, PR powerhouse Jacenko said on this week’s episode of Stellar.
In May, the mini-mogul launched her own Pixie’s Fidgets business idea with help from Jacenko, after the sensory toy took to playgrounds across the country.
It was a huge success, with the colorful bubble popping toys selling in the first 48 hours and earning over NZD 207.00 in its first month of operation.
Pixie Fidgets joins Pixie’s Bows, the successful hairdressing business Jacenko started for her daughter when she was just a baby.
Both companies are part of Pixie’s Pixs, a line of Pixie-approved toys, games and other children’s goodies sold online.
Pixie presents her businesses on her Instagram account, managed by Jacenko, where she has nearly 90,000 subscribers.
Jacenko also runs the day-to-day operations of her daughter’s businesses and couldn’t be prouder of Pixie’s drive at such a young age.
“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 I was told I had to be successful. “Jacenko told Stellar.
“When I was 14 I got a job at McDonald’s because you did in my day.
“So I guess the most important thing for me is her drive as an entrepreneur. Yes, I activated her, but she still has it, which for me is the most rewarding part.”
In August, Jacenko made headlines when she rewarded Pixie’s hard work with an all-new Mercedes-Benz GL valued at NZD $ 280,000 which she uses to drive the schoolgirl and her younger brother. Hunter Curtis, 7 years old.
But this Christmas, Pixie plans to spoil her mom with freebies, as well as a luxury vacation abroad now that international borders are reopened.
“I’m going to buy her some new clothes because she doesn’t have any good clothes at all, and I also want her to have real hair because she is in desperate need of hair extensions,” Pixie told Stellar. .
“Today my friend told me his family was going to Paris for Christmas and I think it’s just wonderful.
“So, I told mum that I think we should go to my favorite place, which is Fiji. Mum, you wouldn’t like to go to Laucala Island. It was the best vacation.”
