Join the inspiring Brandon T Adams on this week's episode of The Quest for New Inspiration. We discuss finding what success means to you and his Emmy moment!

Brandon grew up working with his father in the packaged ice business in Garnavillo, Iowa. He and his father grew the company in a tri-state region, and in 2014, Brandon acquired the business from his father. Adams’ Ice Service is an Ice distributor under the brand Arctic Glacier Ice.

One hot day while delivering Ice, Brandon’s bottled beverage got warm on a hot summer day. He had used ice cubes before to keep the drink cold but putting ice cubes in the bottle was time-consuming and diluted. This problem led Brandon to invent the product Arctic Stick, an innovative new product that cools and flavors beverages. After investing $100,000 of his own money and 3.5 years of hard work, he began to market, and it sells on Amazon today. Check it out here. He also obtained a patent and two trademarks for his invention.
