The Financial Review just revealed who’s made it to the 2018 Young Rich List. And guess who took out spot #5 and #6?
None other than the fitness mogul and her partner in business and life, Tobi Pearce.
The couple – who announced the news of their engagement back in April – have a joint net worth of $486 million, making them the richest self-made 20-somethings in Australia. Their fortune stems from the enormous success of her Bikini Body guide, Sweat app and numerous book titles.
In a previous interview with Collective Hub, the Adelaide-native shared the secret behind the pairs’ success:
“Have your passion, but also listen to your audience and what they say, because there’s nothing worse than producing something that you think is cool and you think is awesome but it’s not what they want,” she said.
“You have to listen… For example, my clients, they’ll find little things that I don’t see, like, ‘Oh, you should do this, or you should do this,’ and it’s like, ‘that’s a really good idea!’”
“If you just listen to them, you build a product that your customer wants.”
Kayla is one of just 10 women who feature on the list this year. Coming in at joint 8th and 9th place (with a combined wealth of $428 million) is Cyan Ta’eed and her husband Collis - the co-founders of online graphic market place, Envato. Canva’s Melanie Perkins is the third highest female – sharing a wealth of $177 million with co-founder Cliff Obrecht.
At #52 overall (with a net worth of $177 million), is model Miranda Kerr. Former WH cover star and fitness trainer, Emily Skye, is the fifth highest female on the list. Alongside her husband Declan, she took out 67th and 68th spot thanks to their joint wealth of $26 million.
