In his latest series, Money Matters, Entrepreneur Network partner Peter Voogd discusses how to go from broke to the possibility of making six figures in a matter of months. 

Voogd says that in his journey to become a six-figure earner, he first adopted the mindset of someone who is wealthy. 

"Don't believe what you believe just because that's how you were raised." That mantra has helped Voogd make strides in his financial life. In other words, expect to live a bigger, more wealthy lifestyle through your mindset.

Voogd mentions he attempted to live life with no money, as well as live life with a lot of money. He shares his ultimate discovery -- shockingly -- that having a lot of money was a more enjoyable and fulfilling lifestyle. However, it did not equate to happiness. 

What he did learn is that in order to live life on his terms, Voogd knew he had to make money. Money afforded him the independence and opportunities to live the life he desired.
