“Being a new freelancer, Mat always has valuable answers to my questions. Because of him, I now know I will be successful.”

—Kayla Weers


Hi, I’m Mat,

I’m a graphic designer, web developer, tech nerd, small business owner and family man.

In 2006, I took my past experience and passion to create and left my corporate cubicle and launched a freelance design agency. Through many years of mistakes and hard lessons, my freelance business grew. Now, annual revenues for my business are consistently well over 6-figures—year over year.

And I have built my freelance business in a small, rural town of 650 people 50 minutes south of Kansas City, Kansas. (although we do have really good internet)

Now, wanting to help others, I created Freelance on Fire to show creative professionals like you how to discover your potential, ignite your passion and launch your talent as a freelancer.

Starting a freelance business isn’t easy. It takes hard work. But, if you’re like me. I was afraid of what I didn’t know. And the fear kept me from moving forward.

My goal is to save you precious time, frustration and guesswork by sharing with you all of the businesses lessons, insight, tips and tricks that I’ve learned over the past 20 years.

Be who you were created to be!


“In the first 10 minutes of our coaching session, Mat identified a valuable source of traffic and leads for my business.”

—Brian Juhl
