Why the voices of business in Boston deserve to be heard

Have you ever wondered what makes Boston’s business community tick? 

How do local business owners manage to balance their demanding work lives with their personal passions? 

Finding that balance can feel really hard sometimes, and many are left wondering if it’s even possible.

Sometimes, you might find yourself feeling alone in your struggles.

But I’m here to tell you you’re not alone. 

There are 675,000 of us!

Did you know that there are over 675,000 small businesses in Massachusetts, employing more than 1.5 million people? 

In a city with over 4.9 million residents, these stories deserve to be heard. 

What if you could take a peek into their daily routines and get inspired by their stories?

That’s the whole idea behind Wicked Business Boston 

I’m excited to welcome you.

Hi, I’m Charlie Abrahams. I’m a Headshot and Portrait Photographer and, like you, one of those 675,000 small business owners.  My studio is located in the SOWA Market in the South End of Boston.

During my working day, my job leads me to interact with business owners, career climbers, and businesses alike within the City of Boston. 

This blog came about because I realized how lucky I was to be in this position and wondered what would happen if I started documenting the stories I heard.

I wondered if we could help each other out by telling our stories.

And so began the seed that is now Wicked Business Boston, a blog that gives voice to Boston’s business people. You’ll all have a voice here.

I’ll be interviewing business people in Boston and publishing their stories. Sometimes, we’ll include a video or audio version of the interview, but it’ll mainly consist of straight stories.

The loneliness of the Boston business owner

Let’s be honest: sometimes, the world of being a creative person can have unwelcome side effects. 

Numerous studies over the past 30 years have found rates of depression in the general population are about 5%, yet the rate among artists and writers has been between 5% and 50%. 

Luckily, I have a prescription drug that’s practically free: exercise. My workouts improve my productivity, energy, mood, and creativity.

No doubt I’ll share more in future posts!

Now, I also have this blog to bring your stories, ideas, and suggestions to the business community here in Boston.

A support network and inspiration you’ll love

I also think it’s really important to have a support network. 

I’ve been a member of a photographer’s group that includes people in my industry worldwide. So it’s great to have that support.

But I wanted to do something different with Wicked Business Boston, I wanted to bring out the variety of businesses here in the city.

To give us all a chance to get to know more about each other. Who knows, you might find your next great idea, your next business partner or even land some new clients!

What’s your winning formula?

There are many of us here in Boston—business owners, creatives, entrepreneurs—each with our own stories, loves, and lives. 

We have ideas, insights, and inspiration to share.

Your personal winning formula could be just the thing that others need to hear.

I’d love to hear from you if you’d like to be featured on Wicked Business Boston. Let’s set up an interview.
