    Yes, he’s talented, but sitting in that chair is a smart kid, too! Through guidance from his parents, Branden has known all along that talent alone wasn’t going to take him anywhere. Talent is cheaper than table salt, because it comes naturally. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work. You have earned this, young man. Congratulations!
