So, as the title says my wife and I are seriously considering a cross country move to sunny Ca. We've lived in New England our entire lives, growing up in MA, went to college in VT, then came back to MA in 2007. Both of us always get told we'd like the west coast, we're pretty laid back and liberal. We've had enough of the cloudy days and bitter winter. Our friends are slowly moving away and we don't have any strong family ties here anymore. We like the beach and Good tacos. My wife is a massage therapist and is in the process of dissolving a partnership so she won't be tied here for work. I however work in mutual fund custody and don't see a lot of related jobs in my field I would qualify for. I'm considering changing to sales. From those of you that live or have lived there, why and why not?
