We are working on several webinars, the web site (too long of a process), and conferences.  I am semi-retired and as my retired friends warned me, I am still too busy just like I was when I worked full time, but I am doing things I enjoy and have passion about.

Passion is necessary for all testers.  You really need to have this to allow you to focus on learning, practice, trying new things, and providing value added information to your stakeholders. If you are not passionate, you may be need to think about changing things.  Life is to short to “just work a job”.  Testing is a job, but it can be interesting and even for type “E” people exciting.  It just takes some work and risk taking (what new technique have you tried today?).
