Your Instructor


Hi! My name is Mary Uncustomary England.

I’m a published author, life coach, event speaker, podcaster, and team building facilitator. I have two degrees in Psychology. Previously, I worked at a psychiatric rehabilitation center for five years, creating curriculums for courses for 100 adults with mental illness. I’ve run my own business since 2013, where I created my own job title: Merriment Maker.

I actively study psychology, positivity, and fun. I’ve coached people 1:1 for over almost a decade with glowing reviews. I don’t base my work on hunches or tote bag inspiration. It’s influenced by research, science, and action. Let’s just say I have my 10,000 hours.

I have one dozen mental illnesses of my own. I come here from a sincere desire of wanting to be happy, not naturally being happy. I know this is work. And I’m doing it with you. I know if I can have an eating disorder, self-harm every day for years, try to kill myself, abuse drugs, and experience sexual assault and still create a fun life, I can help you have a fun life, too.

I believe in play over meditation. I’m blunt. My methods are founded in psychology and science, and I’m also (realistically) optimistic. I’m a good teacher. I’ve taught adults how to read and how to love themselves. Perhaps most importantly, I am here to get you to take action, not just to theoretically understand something.

My Merriment Making Method will always provide you with actionable steps and ideas to get you out of your head and into the world.

Tangibility will always win over theory.

>> I want you to have good news coming at you from all angles.

So if you're not already in the Merriment Makers (because these are already included), I'm introducing this subscription à la carte to ensure there's joy coming at you all the time.

>> We have to delegate certain things. The accountant does our taxes. The mechanic fixes our car. And the Merriment Maker provides you joy.

There's nothing wrong with spending a little money to make sure you're being prompted with good news, positive perspectives, and wholesome memes to continually renew your faith in humanity. That's my job. Sit back and relax.

“The best thing about Mary’s texts are they're the perfect pick me up and reminder to focus on the good in our lives. I love getting them and think you will too.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How many texts do you get?
You'll receive 3+ texts a week!
What's the point of the Teachable account?
Literally just for billing, the sales page, for you to find out how to sign up, and if I ever put any extras in here. Not really much, honestly.
Is this available internationally?
No, sorry. You need to be in the United States with a USA number. I can only text numbers I could text regularly.
Do I need to be able to text to do this?
Your phone needs to be able to receive and view texts for this to be functional and helpful. You definitely don't need to be able to text back, though. So if you don't know how to text but you know your phone has a texting plan and you can see them, that works.
Will I be charged for texting?
Yes. Whatever your phone plan charges for texting applies here. This is like I'm texting you just like anyone else. I'm not responsible for any texting or other phone charges.
Do the texts include images?
Yes. Many of the texts will include a fun or positive affirmation or image. No videos or GIFs, just still images.
What if I'm already in the Merriment Makers?
Then you're already getting this service and it would be silly for you to purchase it.
