Creating Systems for a More Streamlined Home With Laura Hernandez

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 76

In this episode of A Purpose Driven Mom, we are joined by Laura from Mama Systems. Laura is a mom of 10 kids and has had to create systems within her home so that she can have a less chaotic and more joyful life.

If you’ve ever felt like you could streamline your operations in both your home and work life, then this episode is for you!

Listen in for actionable tips on how to create systems in your home, that are also transferable to your business, and help you optimize your workflow and make working from home a whole lot easier!

Laura is an expert at helping moms, as many of us, tackle certain mindset beliefs that may be holding you back, such as “I don’t deserve any help” or “it’s too late to create systems in my business”.

You will learn how to get your kids onboard and how to introduce healthy boundaries when you’re trying to work from home.

Teaching your kids how to do chores is definitely not the easiest task, but Laura talks us through why it is doing them a favor, shaping them into well-rounded adults.

About Laura:

Laura Hernandez and her husband, Tony, live in Parker, Texas. They are parents to 10 kids between the ages of 1 and 14 — a mix of biological and adopted, typically developing and with special needs, homeschooled and public schooled. When Laura’s family suddenly grew from 4 kids to 10 kids over the course of four years, she struggled. Laura read a number of books and sought after advice. She quickly realized there was no ready-made solution for her family so she set out to create systems and routines that were customized for her family’s needs. After hearing over and over again “How do you do it?!”, Mama Systems was born. From free resources on MamaSystems.net to one-on-one coaching, Laura is dedicated to helping Mamas take their homes from chaotic-and-reactionary surviving to calm-and-intentional living.
