With a decent paying job you can live anywhere you want! What do you want to do, have you looked for work yet and know the areas you want to live? LA is HUGE.

You need to look for a job first, and don't think just L.A. (though by "L.A." you could mean much of Southern California, not just the City of L.A. or even the county). Why L.A.? Just for a change of scenery? Find a job, know your income and then find what you can afford in various areas. What area of the region is best for you only you know. As noted, it's a huge, spread-out area. The fact that you worked in Corporate America doesn't say much about your job prospects. Lots of people are looking for jobs. If you want a change of scenery, why not look in lots of parts of the country?
