David Concannon Talks with Teri: Part 1

On Becoming David

The odds weren't good that David Concannon would have made something of himself, but he wasn't listening. He didn't have a lot of champions but the ones he had made all the difference. From his grandfather to camp counselors and teachers, to writers like Tim Cahill these were those who shaped him, who helped him become David. Largely because of them, he refused to be limited by others' negative perception of his prospects.

In Part 1 he talks about how the dream of exploration was implanted in him and about meeting a special girl in Jersey who he lost track of for awhile but later married. He traces his educational trajectory and development as a lawyer and talks about working for a judge who had a hand in his becoming, as well.

Teri's Doing It!
Teri's Doing It! Podcast
A friend once told me, "Teri, you'll never meet anyone who doesn't know at least one thing you don't." It's true. Teri's Doing It! podcasts feature inspiring people from whom I've learned a lot. I hope the stories they tell do the same for you.
I'm a travel writer and podcaster who has realized that time is finite and I'm getting closer to the end than the beginning. Because I don't want to go out with a long, undone to-do list, I'm doing things these days I always wanted to do but hadn't made time for.
Join me. Hear from inspiring people who aren't letting grass grow under their feet no matter their age, who have found their passion and pursue it with all their hearts. And then go out and mark things off your to-do list.
Carpe diem! What have you got to lose?
