Here's What It Looks Like To Become A Billionaire

Andrew Mason owns 6.8% of Groupon. After it went public on the NASDAQ earlier today, Groupon is now worth ~$18 billion.

That means Andrew Mason is, on (fairly move-able) paper, worth about $1.13 billion.

Here’s what it looks like to become that rich:

We're clapping because we're happy…

We're happy because COLLECTIVELY, WE ARE WORTH BILLIONS!

Big smiles any day you make a billion.

Now a picture in Times Square.

Watch that stock rise, for now at least.

Big day for Andrew Mason.

Got to keep your eyes on that stock board.

Groupon's done well its first day.
