about us

Young. Independent. Fearless.ย 
(& a little cheekyย ๐Ÿ˜‰)

If youโ€™re in search of the after party, youโ€™ve come to the right place. We got your backstage tickets in hand. Or maybe itโ€™s pre job interview advice you seek. We have it all, from fashion tips to easy confidence boosters. But youโ€™re probably wondering, who exactly we are, right? What is 5Why? Great question.

Weโ€™re an independent publishing and events business made by young Australians for you โ€“ our own mates, friends and colleagues. No one ever said adulthood was going to be easy, so letโ€™s navigate it together, one how to guide at a time. We got you covered on everything, from the simple day to day stuff to the big life decisions. Discovering, stumbling and learning from our f*ck ups. We are your definitive guide to everything work and play.

Weโ€™re the who, what, when, where, why and how of getting your shit together. From the job interview to the secret gig,ย weekend getaway to overseas ex-pat journey. We love supporting locals; the up and comers in arts, business, music, cafes/bars and everything in between.

So come stumble, party and live with us. None of us are perfect โ€“ so letโ€™s be un-perfect together.
