English term or phrase: a kid from Kalispell
Before he was CEO of XXX, YYY was just ***a kid from Kalispell***.

His family owned a wood mill in the sleepy Montana town. It was an idyllic childhood, filled with family adventures, loving parents, character building, and cherished memories. And always present was the sound of music.


Wie findet ihr folgende Lösung:


Bevor er CEO von XXX wurde, lebte YYY ***abseits des Rampenlichts***.

Seine Familie besaß eine Holzfabrik in Kalispell, einer verschlafenen Kleinstadt in Montana. Dort verbrachte er eine idyllische Kindheit mit fürsorglichen Eltern, vielen Familienausflügen und schönen Erlebnissen. Und immer gab es viel Musik.
