Facebook Marketplace VP Deb Liu got her start selling products online while she was getting her MBA. The experience taught her that connecting buyers and sellers could help people supplement their incomes, and even change the world.
In her current role, she enjoys helping other people open more opportunities for themselves. Liu encourages women considering a career in tech not to let the bad headlines dissuade them. She thinks the tech world offers opportunity to make a great impact in the world in a fulfilling and flexible career.
Liu even has a routine when it comes to her down time. The vice president says she puts her three children to bed at nine, then works out, before taking time to write and put her thoughts "to bed" on paper. She agrees with colleague Sheryl Sandberg that the most important career decision is who you marry.
