The Hustler’s Dilemma: Balancing Business and Political Ambitions with Derrick Evans

DISCLAIMER: The appearance of any politician as a guest on the Kanawha Valley Hustlers Podcast does not constitute an endorsement or promotion of their political ideology, party affiliation, or policies. We extend an open invitation to politicians from all backgrounds to participate in discussions on our show.

Hey there, folks. Joe Justice here, with the Kanawha Valley Hustlers. I recently had the chance to chat with Derrick Evans, a man on a mission – quite literally, as he’s running for U.S. Congress in West Virginia’s first Congressional District. But politics aside, our chat delved deep into the realms of business development and the art of the hustle.

Derrick’s journey into the world of entrepreneurship began with humble roots in real estate back in 2016. A former schoolteacher, he and his wife embarked on their first rental property venture, fueled by determination and a willingness to put in the extra hours. It’s a story of turning passion into profit, one fixer-upper at a time.

But what led Derrick to make the leap from property mogul to political candidate? Simple – a desire to safeguard individual freedoms and liberties for his children and future generations. It’s a sentiment many small business owners can relate to, as they navigate the murky waters of regulations and economic challenges.

Speaking of economic challenges, Derrick highlights the pressing issues of inflation and border security as topics that dominate conversations across communities, regardless of political affiliations. It’s a stark reminder that the concerns of everyday citizens often diverge from the narratives spun by the media.

Transitioning from side hustle to full-time entrepreneurship isn’t for the faint of heart, but Derrick offers practical advice for aspiring business owners. From registering your LLC to building relationships with local bankers, it’s about taking tangible steps to legitimize your venture and set a solid foundation for growth.

And amidst the hustle and bustle of campaign trails and business endeavors, Derrick emphasizes the importance of family and balance. It’s a marathon, not a sprint, and taking time to recharge and refocus is essential for long-term success.

As our conversation winds down, it’s evident that the spirit of the hustle runs deep in Derrick Evans. Whether it’s fixing up properties or fighting for political change, his journey is a testament to the power of perseverance and passion.

So, to all the hustlers out there, take heed – embrace the challenges, seize the opportunities, and above all, hustle hard with a smile.
