About Marshall Miller
After Marshall Miller graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Business Finance, he spent a decade in the field of real estate sales and development. During that time, he picked up a long list of unusual weekend-warrior hobbies: skydiving, wingsuiting, paragliding, speed flying and BASE jumping--including ski BASE jumping.
“I found a lot of financial success in those 10 years,” he says, “And I’m really happy I did it. The thing is: I made a lot of money, but I didn’t make a lot of memories in that work. My happiest times were in the sky, in the mountains and with my family.”
Then, in 2008, the bottom dropped out of the financial market. It put Marshall in a very vulnerable position. He was uninspired by the work. He was shouldering an unsustainable balance of assets and liabilities. All while he and his wife were raising a young family.
In that vulnerability and surrender, he found immense freedom.
“There was a very distinct turning point,” Marshall Miller explains. “I realized it was time to fully push the reset button, design a new life for us and chase something I liked.”
In that moment, Marshall walked away from the corporate world and dedicated himself fully to his athletic pursuits. It was a watershed moment. There was no going back.
“It was so scary,” he continues, “But I am so thankful that I did it. Who knows? I could have crashed and burned. It could have been a different path for sure. The typical response I got from the people around me was to shake their heads and say good luck, I hope you can make it a year.”
Ten years on, Marshall Miller has made his living traveling the world with the GoPro Bomb Squad, the company’s exclusive flight team, which he co-founded--demonstrating the approach to calculated risk that has worked so well in his own life. He’s flown into NFL games, NASCAR races, featured in Hollywood films and commercials (including a Super Bowl 50 spot for Pepsi) and created jaw-dropping YouTube videos with millions of views. Along the way, Marshall has performed and competed on the world stage in the wingsuiting discipline, taking part in landmark events such as the World Wingsuit League in China, the Red Bull Aces and more.
Like his rock-climber father, he dedicates himself to pushing the boundaries of mountain sports (as well as his own) and bringing the talent out in the athletes around him, both aspiring and established.
Today, Marshall Miller’s focus lies squarely on helping other people use the tools he has learned: intelligently calculating risk, cultivating positivity, creating unorthodox opportunities and optimizing performance in all areas of life.
“You don’t have to go out and do a life-or-death sport for these principles to make magic,” Marshall smiles. “If I can give people the tools they need to go after their greatness, that will make a better world for all of us.”
