Bottle Cap Light Up Invention– Bart Briggs– Ep36

Bart Briggs is currently an engineer for Newell Brands (formerly Rubbermiade). Like myself, he graduated from Virginia Tech (he got a degree in Materials Science and Engineering)

After college he took a job with Halliburton, but despite excellent pay was experiencing job burnout. He decided to take a 40% pay cut to do what he really loves, which is design engineering. He says he is very happy with the decision.

In addition to his day job, he has a light up bottle cap invention that he is working on. It is patent pending and we discuss the next steps to the design and bringing it to market. I’ve helped him a little bit with the design.

Key Takeaways

  1. I like Bart’s advice about not always following the money. Do what you love
  2. Having a side project can lead to bigger things
