From overcoming challenges in her childhood to building her own lifestyle brand and fashion empire, this powerhouse in pigtails (as she’s often referred to as) - is hoping to inspire and encourage others to find their own success in life, love and business.

She’s also spilling stories from her personal life that haven’t been shared before on the RHONJ, like the time Joan Rivers gave her the best advice she ever got, the rendezvous she had with a famous rock star, and the affair with her contractor that ended her first marriage - but gave her the happily ever after she was always looking for.

“The Marge” recently shared some advice on “Houston Life” for anyone looking to make a change in their lives - whether it’s personal or professional.

She wants everyone to know that if she can do it, so can YOU!

“Make one change in your life in that direction, just write it down, do your manifesting, just to make yourself stronger, talk to a friend who you trust or talk to a therapist,” she said.

And on the career front, if you’re stuck in a job you don’t like - don’t be afraid to start something new with a side hustle.

“Your ideas start making them a reality on the side,” Margaret said.
