Founder John Poole envisioned Mr. Genuine Consulting during his time as a business owner and manager, when he realized he yearned for more than a nine-to-five job dedicated only to making money. For ten years, he pictured a business which did more than business, and a genuine desire to make a difference in people’s lives grew in his mind. During his time as general manager for his latest position, John realized that the corporate world was not the right place to do so, and decided to strike out on his own. Thus, John became a consultant to concentrate on his favorite, most meaningful part of the job: mentoring and helping people.
John knew upon coming to Boise that it was time to step away from purely corporate business consulting, and decided to take the Mr. Genuine dream to the next level. He met a team of people likewise dedicated to making a real difference in peoples’ lives, and decided to move Mr. Genuine Consulting to Boise, Idaho, where he plans to branch into teaching classes, individual mentoring, launching “It's Fun to be Happy” merchandise, and showing people that “It’s Fun To Be Happy” however he can.
