What America's Highest-Paid CEO Does in a Typical Day

Wall Street GoPro IPO

By Rachel Gillett

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.
