What America's highest-paid CEO does in a typical day
What started on a five-month-long surfing trip as a way to document Nick Woodman's adventures has since become a publicly traded company that sells $300-dollar cameras and made Woodman the highest-paid CEO in the US in 2014, according to Bloomberg. GoPro has humble beginnings as an 8-employee company that sold camera straps. But eventually the company began creating and selling its own cameras and mounts and now employs more than 800 people. As Woodman explains in GoPro's "about us" video, it's not a little company anymore.
