When you think about wealthy people, you try to imagine what it must be like to be them even for a day. Buying whatever you want and not having to worry about money? Few of us will ever feel that sense of financial freedom. It seems truly unfathomable to the average man/woman on the street. Even more unfathomable? There are wealthy KIDS in this world who will NEVER get to experience the joy of having to eat Ramen for a week just to make ends meet.
Grab your antidepressants folks, here are 10 kids who are poised to be or are already richer than most of us.
10 Sire - (50 Cent's 2-Year-Old)
Open up anyone's Instagram and I bet you they follow some kind of 'model' on there because there are literally thousands of people who would love to model for a living. And why wouldn't they? It's a pretty sweet gig to have, getting paid to stand there and look pretty. So we're sure all the 'aspiring models' out there (most of us in L.A. call them 'waiters') cried tears of sorrow into their mung bean salads when someone who barely learned to stand and is still 'iffy' on his bowel movements landed a modeling gig to the tune of $700,000. That amazing someone would be the ball of chub and swag that is Sire, 50 Cent's two-year-old son. 50 Cent recently bragged to a local radio station that his son was signed on to be a model and got his first fat paycheck at the ripe old age of two. TWO. We bet you have stuff stuck in between your teeth that's older than that.
9 Kaia Gerber (Cindy Crawford's daughter)
Okay, so she hasn't signed on to an agency yet, and technically, TECHNICALLY she's only rich via her famous parents. So yes, we may be jumping the gun on this but if you think Kaia Gerber isn't poised to be as famous (and as rich) as her mom used to be, then let's get you an appointment with an optometrist, stat. Unless you're legally blind, clearly anyone can see that Kaia scored the genetics lottery and is essentially a 3D printout of Cindy Crawford with a little dash of her dad in the mix; who, of course, is pretty damn good looking dude in his own right. In the future, Kaia Gerber WILL BE on everyone's 'rich kids' listicles and we'll all be here like, "yeah, we totally called that a year ago." #SMH
8 Noa Mintz
We're not saying this 15-year-old entrepreneur/babysitter prodigy isn't smart, we're just saying that her 'idea' to make millions by running a nanny service isn't even unique and yet somehow, this girl is making serious cash. Noah boasts that her nannies are more engaging with the children they watch rather than your typical run-of-the-mill nanny who ...doesn't? We don't know exactly what she did differently there, but whatever she's doing must be right as she's recently had to hire a CEO to run her day-to-day affairs because business is booming. It had to be done, Noah said, because apparently she just couldn't find time to breath and be a kid with all the money being thrown at her. We can all collectively cry about our life choices now.
7 Nick D'Aloisio
This was the barely teen who sold a $30 million app to Yahoo. We've mentioned him on this site a few times, but we think this just can't be said enough. THIRTY. MILLION. FOR AN APP. Nick D'Aloisio is the mastermind of Summly, an app that summarized internet content into 1,000, 500 and 140 character summary texts. Yeah, we barely know what it does either and that's probably why this guy has 30 more million dollars than all of us. He doesn't even have his license, Lisa!
6 Richard Wilson
What if I told you some frat guy looking dude thought up of an idea to sell sections of ads for a dollar to make a billboard he planned to put up in cities like New York, Paris and Hong Kong? This simple, you-want-to-hit-yourself-with-a-brick-because-you-didn't-think-of-it idea made $41,300 in just two weeks! Let us know when you're done hitting your head with that brick, because we'd like to borrow it.
5 Kylie Jenner
Apparently 'socialite' is an occupation now because if you Google Kylie Jenner, it's written on her Wikipedia page like it's an actual job. When she goes out and parties with her friends, she's called a socialite. When we go out and party with our friends, we're called a cab because we got too drunk to drive home. Meanwhile, Kylie Jenner just barely learned how to drive and isn't old enough to rent a car, BUT she did manage to buy her first HOUSE for $2.7 million. It really pays to be the master of all trades because aside from being a socialite, Kylie is also a 'singer-songwriter' and 'model,' two other occupations she totally earned and worked hard for that had nothing to do with the fact that her family sweats money. Yeah.
4 Connor Bruggemann
While you secretly fondled yourself under your desk in high school, Connor Bruggemann was fondling his phone and making 300k as a day trader of penny stocks. Connor used his iPhone to buy and sell six figure stocks under his desk, at the lunch table, in the bathroom, and managed to turn $10,000 (money he had saved from working odd jobs) into $300,000 when he started trading penny stocks. It helps that grandpa was also a former Wall Street Trader who was the former Vice President of JP Morgan. It's a familiar tune we've all heard before called, "The rich are getting richer!!"
3 John Meyer
Naming your unborn child something that rhymes with 'John Meyer' should be on your bucket list because apparently if that's your name, you either become a moderately talented, average-looking musician who sleeps with pop stars and actresses or you become a 19-year-old who invents a system called "Fresco News." This John Meyer was already making lots of money creating iPhone apps which he then invested into his tech startup, "Fresco News" - which is like a Twitter, Instagram Flipboard thingy and has made him so much money he wants to keep it a SECRET. In other words, the money he's made is so obscene that he's actually embarrassed by it.
May we have this very same problem in our next life.
2 Chase Reed
Everybody has had a pair of sneakers, but Chase Reed has had almost all the sneakers. His sneaker collection was huge and he had about $30,000 worth of sneakers. His dad encouraged him to sell his sneakers and use the money to open up their very successful sneaker pawn shop that has been very, very lucrative. Buying and trading classic sneakers, some of Reed's prices have reached up into the thousands. We followed suit and tried to pawn off our sneakers to make some cash but oddly enough, 3-year-old Asics that smell like salt and vinegar chips aren't going for much money.
1 Kristina Pimenova
She's the daughter of a retired soccer player and a former model and has been dubbed "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World." That's a heavy title to be carrying at 9 years old but with such stunning features, it's no surprise that she's become the youngest super model ever. This little Russian girl has already worked with BIG fashion houses such as Armani and Dolce & Gabbana. If puberty is kind to her, Kristina's set to becoming one of the most successful models the world has ever seen. She'll probably never know the hardships of poverty or experience the pure terror that we all feel when we accidentally turn our phone's forward facing camera on. (Aaaa!)
