IGS Alumna Alex Coote (2011) shares passion for organisation

Organisational whiz Alexandra Coote (2011) has always had a passion for being organised.

That passion is what inspired her to start her own cleaning and organising business, Holistic Homes.

“Having systems help so much in keeping stresses low and items easy to find,” Alexandra said.

Her best advice for maintaining a decluttered home is to avoid buying too many things.

“You likely don’t need it. Always donate where you can, or recycle. Don’t throw it away.”

“I love cleaning wardrobes and pantries. The best part about my job is seeing the happiness from my clients.”

Alexandra said starting a business is easy if you believe in your abilities.

“People have confidence in you, if you’re confident in yourself.”

Alexandra, who is also a mother of two, said starting her business was important for her, to find purpose outside of the house.

Alex’s story also features on the new IGS Alumni Instagram page. You can follow the page here for regular updates on other alumni.
