May is Small Business Month, which can provide people an incentive to start new businesses.

For a decade, a business boot camp series called the Business Ignitor Course has helped create hundreds of jobs in Nevada County through core classes, accountability meet-ups, and mentoring. The course, designed by the nonprofit group Sierra Commons, is a “Wayfinder” to success for many new entrepreneurs.
