Finally, Bass decided to move back to Austin for a position at ScaleFactor.
Bass begins his day slowly—and builds up speed as he goes. Arriving in the office around 8:30 AM, he catches up with co-workers over coffee, then goes over the day’s forecast and planning priorities. He and his team enjoy lunch together, and by afternoon, they're deep into client consulting, presenting information to assist in strategic decision-making for the future.
