Be who you were created to be.

I love being a freelancer because it allows me to be my best self, integrating my skills, talents, experience and passions while serving clients I love. It allows me the freedom to spend time on what matters most to me—my family.

In 2005, I took my past experience and passion— left my corporate, 9-to-5 cubicle—and launched a freelance design agency. Through many years of mistakes and learning hard lessons, my freelance business grew. Now, my annual revenues are consistently over 6-figures—year over year.

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

I created IGNITE to show creative professionals like you how to discover your potential, ignite your passion and launch your talent as a freelancer.

I want 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 25 years. 

“Every meeting with IGNITE pays for itself many times over!”

“Working with Mat has completely transformed both my business and the way I think of myself as a freelancer. I knew I had some design skills and a strong work ethic, but I didn’t know where to invest my time, what to charge, or how to find new clients. I’ve been working with Mat for 2 months, and I now have a full schedule, I’m turning clients away, and have nearly doubled my hourly rate. Save yourself the time and trouble of reinventing the wheel – every meeting with IGNITE pays for itself many times over! I look forward to sharing wins and asking questions every week, and each meeting makes me feel less isolated and more empowered. I’ve even found new clients directly through the group. I can’t recommend IGNITE highly enough!

The Freelance World Is Exploding

We’re in the middle of what I call the “FREELANCE REVOLUTION”

The world is changing and freelancing is now becoming mainstream. What used to be a handful of individuals telecommuting has now become the new normal.

Businesses have been forced to adjust to the gig economy (now containing 60 million workers) which is making it increasingly more difficult to find in-house employees.

Our economy and commerce as we know it is forever changing due to technology and the growth of online business.

For the first time in modern history, wealth is leaving the dominance of the corporate environment and is shifting to and being distributed among a new economy of small business owners and entreprenuers.

As freelance business owners, individuals like you and me can find new freedom in this emerging economy.

The opportunity is now to be able to do the work we love, for whomever we want, from wherever we want.

One year of IGNITE costs as much as just ONE hour of college credit ($594.46)

Packed with revenue-generating information you won’t learn in design school!

What Design School Won’t Teach You:

  • How to find a customer that is a good fit for you
  • How to price your product for profit
  • How to manage projects and workflow
  • How to budget your time and resources
  • How to control your expenses
  • How to write proposals and estimates
  • How to generate recurring-revenue
  • How to market your skills and services
  • How to manage your tax and IRS responsibilities

The IGNITE Freelance Business Membership WILL!

(for less than the cost of one hour of college credit)

Hey there! I’m Mat

For the past 10 years, I’ve been working with freelance business owners all over the world to help them grow and scale their businesses.

My mission is to help individuals own their unique talents, experience and passions and help them become confident, profitable business owners.

I’ve spent 10 years working for some of Kansas City’s premier corporate web development teams and advertising agencies before launching my own freelance business. I’ve managed web and marketing communications for Fortune 500 clients, while teaching marketing and business development to other creative professionals along the way.

I left my corporate cubicle more than 15 years ago to start my own full-time freelance design business—and I have never looked back.

In 2016, I founded Freelance On Fire because I want to provide guidance and support to others who want to build a vibrant, profitable freelance business, versus those that are stressful and inconsistent.

What if you don’t change?

Those that choose to stay with their current business model of chasing one-time sales will find it harder and harder to keep up.

They will never get a chance to enjoy the freedom and joy of the freelance lifestyle because the stress of finding new clients and making new sales is overwhelming.

Every new month, they will be starting at the beginning. Hoping enough sales are out there to carry you through to the next month.

They will hope that their customers will come back and buy from them again.

But, we both know that ‘hope’ is not a very good business model.

Before you go any further…

Starting a freelance business (or any business) requires you to make some shifts into new ways of thinking. The old way of doing business means you post your portfolio on your website or social page and pray someone sees it and contacts you. But hoping customers see you and buy is stressful, exhausting and unpredictable.

That’s why I’m pumped that you are interested in IGNITE.

What I will teach you will help you build your business in a way that makes finding clients easier. By simply changing the way you think about your skills and talents, I will help you have the confidence to keep taking strategic steps that help lead to clients that love you, keep hiring you month after month and paying you the rates that you deserve EVERY SINGLE TIME.

“IGNITE just feels like a family”

“As a freelancer, you’re working on your own. And, if you hit a wall, where do you go to get those answers or feedback? The IGNITE community is so great. Our weekly IGNITE calls are like a shot in the arm! The group shares your wins, and is encouraging. But, also shares your pain when your week hasn’t been as good. It’s worth way more than the finacial and time commitment that I’ve made. Just try IGNITE. You have nothing to lose.”

I would like to share the IGNITE framework with you.

The challenge with traditional coaching limited me to only being able to serve one or two freelancers at at time. That’s why I tarted IGNITE and if you join me, I’d love to help you too.

If you're a freelancer who wants more stability in your business...

OR... You have marketable skills, talent or experience you'd like to turn into a thriving business...

OR... You are just not sure where to start when it comes to starting a freelance business (and you want to do it in the smartest, most efficient way).

IGNITE can help

As big-hearted individuals, you and I have an awesome opportunities to use our skills, talents, experiences and passions to have a lasting impact on the world. This is why I’m a freelancer and the exact reason why I created IGNITE.

I designed a list of website packages after my session with you; right before a call with a new client. I sold him on my idea, and then showed him my three packages. Would you believe it, he picked the Cadillac! It worked just like you said! Holy cow!
