If you were to start a new practice somewhere other than the state you live in… where would it be…
I was looking into Asheville, NC…
My wife and I really like the rain, so we’ve discussed moving to Seattle quite a few times.
Scottsdale, Arizona! Would probably end up in way too much golf though and not enough work!!
“Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale’s vagina.” Ron BurgandyThat's where I'd go!

I would vote for the Carolina’s or the Pacific Northwest (I’m in New England, which is my first choice!). Don’t worry about the climate for business (within reason), just find the place you would love to live, and you will make it work. But I would try to set up shop as close to where you live as possible, for many reasons.
Asheville is a very expensive place to live especially when you would be on a limited income, but I do agree to move to where you want to live/raise your family and you can make it work. Remember also that in NC the civil war never ended so you better either be a local, speak with a strong southern tongue or marry the right person.
