How does a father shelter his children from the pain of losing their passion, losing their smile, and losing what they love to do amidst the challenges of growing up? Award-winning composer and author Jimmy Brandmeier believes the only possible failure is failing to be who you are. No matter how successful your life may look on the outside, inauthentic living is a sickness that sucks your life forces dry-and Be Who You Are is the cure. For his children, Brandmeier wrote a song, "Be Who You Are." The lyrics soon developed into an inspirational course in authenticity: Be Who You Are: A Song for My Children. Little did Brandmeier know that answers to a major setback in his own life would emerge through the pages. As a college teacher and music industry clinician, Brandmeier is passionate about helping students rise above mass-produced education: to discover who they are, what they want, and why they want it; to give them tools to design a life from what they love to do; to transcend inner and outer obstacles; to boldly and passionately live. Turns out the message he was so passionate about giving his children is one we all need to hear: Be Who You Are-no matter what, no matter where, no matter how far.

Author Biography

Jimmy Brandmeier is "the dad" in a crazy household filled with 3 teenage daughters (Jamie, Jessie, and Josie), Paula, his wife of 20 years, 3 doves, 6 goldfish, a cat named Squeakers, and last but not least, Satchmo, a big, hairy yellow lab named after Louie Armstrong. Jimmy and Paula moved their family from Hollywood to Wisconsin to raise their kids closer to family. They manage to be hands-on parents despite the demands of two busy careers. He's a music industry veteran flying back and forth to California and she's an airline pilot flying back and forth to Europe. In addition to being "the dad," Brandmeier is a Telly Award-winning composer and Summit Award-winning marketer. He's worked with artists ranging from Kenny Loggins to Jason Mraz, written jingles for brands from Mazda to Mattel, performed in venues from town halls to Carnegie Hall, and garnered media coverage from Oprah to Rachael Ray.
