Naw, not worth the time. I worked as a registered assistant for 17 years. He promised me partnership. He was hands off and I was making the calls, portfolio recommendations, etc. He brought in his daughter. I left and went to other firm to build my own book. I always thought I’d show him. 7 years later I have a different perspective. I am grateful he was a jerk. I would have stayed and never grown. I’m happier than I’ve ever been. Focus on future and don’t look back.

As a high school football coach I was an assistant to an A-hole for 2 years. He fired me because my resume didn't include college or pro experience and I only played D3. 10 years later we faced each other as head coaches. He still acted like he was smarter and better than everyone, and like it was a pro game. We smoked him 35-0. He didn't remember me until I asked him if my resume would be good enough now. Every conference coaches' meeting after that he made a point of saying hi to me first. Sadly that was the only time our teams met.
