OUR Origin Story: The Raw Truth...

Your origin story isn’t just fluff; it’s the bedrock of your brand. It's what makes you, well, YOU!

Today marks the beginning of our ‘Make Your Mark’ challenge, and what better way to dive in than by journeying back to where it all started time-travel style? And to kick things off we thought we'd share our origin story...

The raw truth:

…we hit a wall.

A few years ago, Number 75 Design was killing it. Projects flying in left, right, and centre. Ticking all the boxes, it all looked good. But I’ll be honest with you, behind the scenes, we were a hot mess. I’m talking burnout, end up in hospital kind of stress.

It was not pretty.

We were living proof that smashing it on the outside doesn't mean you're not smashing to pieces on the inside.

Things had to change. Something HAD to give.

And I didn’t know how to do it.

So we literally got down off the hamster wheel and that's when we realised that the overwhelm was because we were entering a new phase in our business and the old ways of doing things just weren’t going to cut it if we wanted to continue to grow. We needed a new perspective. 

So we swallowed the toughest pill and decided to invest.

Not going to lie, investing in a business mentor was one of the most terrifying things I have ever done.

I’m not a risk taker, I want cast iron guarantees and there wasn’t one.

And it was a BIG investment. The biggest investment I had ever made in my business, it kept me awake at night and I was scared.

But guess what? It was the best bloody decision we ever made. We saw things differently, discovered a different way to navigate our business, uncovered opportunities that we were too frazzled to see. We switched gears, found our REAL strengths, and, most importantly, created a way to work that felt right for us.

The game-changer is that we now earn more, work better, (which means less), and really frickin’ enjoy what we do. Who would have thought we’d be living proof that taking big risks can lead to even bigger rewards?!!!

So, why does this journey make us the real deal for our clients? Because we've been in the trenches, just like you. We've felt the overwhelm, faced the fear of change, and come out the other side stronger. We get it. And that's exactly why we're perfectly positioned to help you. We're not just talking the talk. We know what it takes to pivot, to transform, and to thrive.

We like to think of ourselves as your partners in crime who understand the highs and lows of running a business. We’re not just bringing our design expertise, but our real-life lessons of growth, resilience, and innovation to the table.

You can definitely have the blaze without the burnout, you just need to find that spark.
