About Marg Lange

Who is Marg Lange?
A tradie’s daughter, a mother, a successful businesswoman, a friend, a teacher, and a coach. There are many ways to describe her but let’s talk about the journey that lead her to establishing The #REALTRADIESWIVES.

Marg’s small business experience started 20 years ago, working out of the family home. Together with her husband she grew the company to be one of the best event management small businesses in Melbourne. But nothing could have prepared her for the personal struggle she would face with her family.

“I lived through it.”
The business thrived until September 11th 2001, when the New York stock market fell and the business was badly affected. A cash flow crisis resulted and ultimately triggered a divorce and the liquidation of her family’s business.

Back on top!
Today, Marg utilizes the valuable lessons she has learned to help other small business owners. She knows firsthand the difficulties of cash flow and the stress that it puts on small business owners, family businesses and business partnerships.
Marg successfully ran her own Fifo Capital Bayside business and founded The Melbourne Construction Gateway, which brings back a fair go for small building contractors who are constantly chasing payment and worrying about finding their next job.
