About Me

Kylie_FennellHi. I’m Kylie Fennell. Creator and Publisher of In Just 5. 

I love creating and curating content, strategies and resources that will make your day. I also love connecting people and coaching small businesses in marketing.

I’m a Writer, Certified Practising Marketer (Australian Marketing Institute) and Trainer with more than 20 years of industry experience. I’m also a passionate home cook. By far though, my biggest role to date has been (and continues to be) Small Business Owner and Mother.

When it comes to In Just 5, I’m all about helping small business owners get the business and life they want.

I genuinely LOVE helping small business owners just like YOU to succeed!

I’m also the creator of HOWTOMARKETING™ – self-paced online marketing courses for small business.

I hold a Bachelor in Public Relations, Journalism and Media Production, an Advanced Diploma of Management, a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment and leadership qualifications.

My work on projects such as the G20 Leaders Summit has reached a global audience and I have lived and worked in Tokyo and London. My work has also been recognised with numerous industry and organisational awards, including the Queensland Premier’s Awards and the Public Relations Institute of Australia.

By far though, my biggest role to date has been (and continues to be) Small Business Owner and Mother.

I’ve been through the frustrations of starting, managing and growing a business, all the while trying to balance family commitments and, well, have a life!

These days, I’m proud to say that, on the most part, I live by my personal ethos to keep business and life simple.

Let me share what I’ve learnt, as well as other people’s wisdom and experiences, with you.

You can see samples of my client portfolio here and my own blog writing at here. My Recent Work can also be found here.

What people are saying about me

“Kylie has been instrumental in guiding my small business through the modern marketing minefield, and has been extremely helpful with digital marketing and web based strategies.

We have reduced our ongoing costs enormously with our short stay business thanks to Kylie’s innovative and clever approach to some of the basics of our operation. Her strong grasp of internet and digital platforms was invaluable.”
Simon Hughes, Business Owner, 
The Grey House

“Kylie knows her stuff!  After having an initial brainstorming session with Kylie I realised how much value she could provide for any business within their market. Her fresh and innovative ideas are a welcome change and her enthusiasm is contagious. I really enjoy my interactions with Kylie as she is warm and welcoming and unassuming – which is a rare find.  I have no hesitations recommending Kylie for any small business wanting to make some smart changes to their communication and marketing strategies!
Laurena Reissman, Business Owner, Mishy Moo Pets

”I have always been impressed by Kylie’s level of professionalism and the amount ofbusiness expertise she has gained over the years. More importantly Kylie has been able to present and impart her knowledge and business expertise in a meaningful and engaging way.

I was impressed by the length and breadth of Kylie’s knowledge and experience across all these fields and also that her knowledge and skill sets were at the forefront of modern technology and communication practices.”
