11-year-old girl who 'makes over $132,000 a month' is retiring to focus on school

With high school just around the corner, Pixie Curtis is retiring from her successful business to focus on school work

An 11-year-old girl is having an early early retirement.

While the majority of us in the UK must wait until we’re 66 to retire, Pixie Curtis, who ‘makes over $132,000 (£108,200) a month' is semi-retiring to focus on school.

The Aussie entrepreneur found success after launching a multi-million dollar empire through Pixie’s Pix, an online shop selling an assortment of accessories.

Pixie’s success meant she could retire at 15 years old as a millionaire.

She started selling fidget toys during lockdown which is when the business really took off.

Pixie’s mum, manager and PR mogul Roxy Jacenko, revealed that her daughter’s fidget business made a whopping AU $200,000 (£109,000) in its first month.

In fact, Pixie could technically retire at 15 as a certified millionaire if she wanted to but now she has decided to ‘semi’ retire in order to focus on her schoolwork since high school is just around the corner.

Pixie has enjoyed the fruits of her labour by splashing out on a huge birthday bash that reportedly cost AU $40,000 (£21,800).

And despite not being able to get her licence for a couple more years, Pixie also has her own set of wheels. We’re not talking about any old motor, she has a Mercedes Benz GL worth AU $270,000 (£147,200).

Pixie's mum Roxy Jacenko said her daughter is shifting her focus to school.

Meanwhile, the mum and daughter duo decided to do a good deed by sending Pixie's accessories to those in need.

Australian news outlet explained that Main Facilities, a NSW government contractor, recently spent AU $30,000 (£16,400) on the shop's stock that will be sent to children's non-profits including Bear Cottage, Ronald McDonald House, Little Wings and Vinnies.

The pair wanted to do something special to mark Pixie's next chapter.

Speaking about her daughter's semi-retirement, mum Roxy told "Pixie has decided to hang her online toy store shoes up to focus on her impending entry into high school.

“In short, over the past few months, we have been discussing the business plans going forward as a family and decided that while it has been an amazing journey starting some three years ago, it was time to refocus with high school just around the corner."

Pixie grew her empire selling fidget toys.

She added: “While the Pixie’s Pix online store will remain, it will go back to how it began in 2011 - as the best destination for children’s hair accessories and hair bows known as Pixie’s Bows - something that we will continue to manage together but with a lot less time/pressure for Pixie.”

So, Pixie will have a lot more time to focus on her school work while her mum helps run her business which, we're sure you'll agree, is a pretty sweet deal!
