Over the years, I have had the honor of being interviewed on variety of podcasts to speak about Upwork, freelancing and small business.
Below, you will find a list of my favorite podcasts and interviews, with links to the episodes in which I appeared, along with a short blurb about each.

How to invite me to appear on your podcast or blog
I accept invitations to appear on podcasts or be interviewed for blogs, as my schedule allows, in exchange for organic backlinks to my two blogs: MorganOverholt.com and TheSmokies.com (my second business).
I also accept invitations to write full length guest posts for other blogs but only if those blogs are able to meet one of the following conditions:
- The blog receives at least 50,000 hits annually and provides backlinks to both MorganOverholt.com and TheSmokies.com.
- The blog is able to pay my regular freelance rate. ($400-$600 depending on the length)
(Gotta make a livin’ y’all!)
