Ask a Billionaire: GoPro's Nick Woodman on the First Time He Felt Rich
Chief executive officer, GoPro
Net worth: $1.73 billion
When was the first time you felt rich?
Probably when my wife and I bought our house. And paying for my own wedding felt really, really good, too. But I still have a very hard time buying stuff, because I can’t get over how expensive things are. Like this watch I’m wearing right now—my wife finally bought it for me after years of me saying I like nice watches but never actually getting one. I have some dream cars from childhood that, yeah, technically I can afford. I’ve always wanted a Ferrari. But I can’t get over the mental block. They’re so expensive! I don’t think my wife has that problem, though.
