GoPro Founder Nick Woodman Is The Utlimate Thrill Blender
Nick Woodman is the ultimate bro. He just raised the bar on the phrase “It ain’t no fun if the homie’s can’t have none”! As GoPro’s founder Nick Woodman’s net worth is north of 2 billion. If most people had a net worth that high i’m pretty certain they would forget the little people in their life (grandma sorry) and ball out of control. However Nick is a man of honor because homeboy gave 4.7 million shares of stock to his old roommate, Neil Dana, allowing him to collect on the 10% Woodman received from the sale of the company’s shares when GoPro went public back in 2014. #BossMove!! If I was Neil; Nick would be the name of my first born child, even if she despised me in her teens. Here are the hard facts – the 10% Nick gave Neil is about equal to roughly $229 million. Yo Neil the best decision in your life was going to the University of California at San Diego. Not for your degree because you can burn that, but simply because of your assigned roommate. That is one awesome set of random circumstances. To set the record straight though, Neil was GoPro’s first official hire as a sales guy at a two person surf shop. To this day he still waves the GoPro flag as their director of music and specialty sales. Thrill Blender’s stick together from day one and Nick Woodman is a great representation of that.
