Nick Woodman of GoPro: Starting a Business

Nick Woodman, founder and CEO of GoPro, talks about his experience being an entrepreneur right after college.  One of the keys to success that he points out is self-imposed deadlines.

“If I hadn’t succeeded by the time I was 30 years old that I’d pack it in and go get a real job.  And that terrified me.  And that drove me.”
