help me help the man

I'm trying to make my new web project legal in California. After reading through the Nolo press book(s), we thought that perhaps the LLC was the best corporate structure (we are going to issue stock and give the primary developer a portion in lieu of payment). While the Federal government taxes LLCs like sole proprietorships - you aren't taxed unless you make profit, and I don't see our profit outpacing our costs for a year - the State of California charges an LLC "tax" (really a fee) of $800, due almost immediately after your incorporation paperwork goes through, so...

Can a 46 year old female survive a move to the left coast?

Culture shock, loneliness or a whole new adventure? I am considering a move from Central New Jersey to Thousand Oaks , California for a great job opportunity. I am a divorced 46 year old female. My mother and one brother live within 2 hours of the new location. My boyfriend and I broke up 2 months ago, I have lived in NJ for decades, I have long time friends here, prefer intellectual versus athletic pursuits, like witty sarcasm, and worry that it is difficult to make friends at this age/stage. Wondering if that is a deal breaker (I am quite shy). Any advice, thoughts on the culture out there?
