About Best Fit Work — Our Story

Bestfitwork.com is the definitive resource for people who want to discover and thrive in their best fit work. What is your best fit work? It’s the energy that you put forth to produce the good that you want to produce in the context that you want to produce it. 

Our founder, Dan Slocum, created this website after developing his own process for figuring out his best fit work. He created his process after realizing he was going down a work path that would not have ultimately created the life he wanted for himself and his family.

As Dan was developing his methodology, he discovered that many people struggle with similar challenges — either following a career path without critically evaluating the role they want work to play in their lives, or getting so lost in the myriad of possible career paths that they get stuck in analysis paralysis.

That’s why bestfitwork.com was built — to be the ultimate guide to helping people discover and thrive in their best fit work.
