Ep 83 - Deb Liu: Juggling Without the Guilt and Taking Back Your Power
If you ever feel like the things that make you different are keeping you from your calling - settle in, because you're about to find a double dose of belonging and courage in this week's episode. Deb Liu, CEO of and founder of Facebook Marketplace, has spent her whole life shifting gears, seeking support and keeping her faith - all while climbing the ranks of Silicon Valley empires like eBay, Meta and PayPal. 

As a powerful C-suite tech leader, who is both a female and a person of color, Deb's personal and professional journey is a rarity. In this episode she opens up to Paula about what it was like growing up as a first-generation Chinese American in the South, where no one looked like her and why her faith was the key to grounding herself in a bigger belonging. Today, as a busy mom and caregiver to her own mother, Deb also shares her zero-regret policy to combat guilt, her tried-and-true advice for finding clarity in the midst of a challenge, and why she says the key to taking a step forward is actually taking a step back. Deb also offers up the personal observations and convictions that led her to write her new book, "Take Back Your Power: 10 New Rules for Women at Work", along with THE question you need to ask to unlock your next promotion.

Great morning listen! Start my day listening to this positive podcast ! Great way to start your day!

Such a wonderful podcast! So nice to listen to pleasant respectful conversations.

Talk less & listen more Paula!

I love Paula- LOVE her! However, I'm consistently disappointed when she talks about herself, her business, her past, her family... most of a show. For instance, I was really excited about the Dan Harris episode, but Paula talked the entire time. I know what she has going on. I'm more interested, during this episode, to hear what DAN has going on. It's a trend I'm seeing for most of her interviews. Please let your guests do 95% of the talking, Paula.
