A couple years ago my nephew was like a kid in a candy store when he got his very first GoPro camera.  This was the first time I had ever heard of the camera, but I knew it was a big deal judging from my nephew’s level of excitement.  From then on, GoPro has become a giant in the world of recreational videography.  The company was founded by Nick Woodman (born June 24, 1975) when he went to Australia and wanted to jimmy together a camera he could wear on his wrist as he surfed.  And the rest, ladies and gentlemen, is history.  In 2004 Nick made his first big sale at a trade show when a Japanese company bought 100 of his cameras.  Fast forward to 2014 and Forbes pegs Nick Woodman’s net worth at a whopping $4.7 billion.  Recently Nick sat down with Charlie Rose for a fascinating conversation about the GoPro phenomenon and you can watch it in full above.  (Photo courtesy of Getty).
