Do you see an economic crisis as a deep swallowing pit or a minor speed bump offering endless possibilities?

Stephen Goveia, a managing director at Greenstein Rogoff Olsen & Co., thinks the latter.

Goveia has created an eight-week course, “Employee to Entrepreneur” covering the major aspects of starting a business – financing your passion, business planning and getting out there.

“The best time to invest in yourself is now,” Goveia said, adding that during the next 20 years nearly 60 percent of all jobs will have to be created.
