Glamour's Samantha Barry says 'networking' doesn't work—this is what she does instead

Young professionals are constantly told about the importance of networking. They’re told to go to job fairs, ask for coffee meetings, mingle at work-related cocktail events, and attend panels.

What’s less clear is how and when (and if) these networking efforts really pay off. Many people dislike networking and say it feels awkward, and for others it can be a source of anxiety. And according to Glamour editor-in-chief Samantha Barry, a better approach is to stop networking entirely, and focus instead on forming relationships.

Barry tells CNBC Make It that she tries never to even use the word “networks” and to focus instead on building relationships in a professional context.

“Networking can sometimes come across as a one-sided and negative word,” she says. “I prefer ‘relationships’ because that’s what I see them as — professional friendships. And they are beneficial and positive for all parties.”

Barry isn’t the only one who feels this way. CNBC contributor Suzy Welch says that the standard, transactional approach to networking, where you meet, talk and then exchange business cards, is usually not the most effective. Instead, Welch recommends taking a long-term approach and working to build a full, authentic relationship.

“Human beings help friends,” she says, “not ‘contacts.'”

Here’s how to shake up your approach to making professional connections:

‘I have not said a word’: John Kerry rejects Pompeo’s criticism over meetings with Iran officials

Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told CNBC on Thursday that he has not sought to influence Iranian foreign policy since leaving the State Department. Speaking to CNBC’s Hadley Gamble in Normandy, France on Thursday, Kerry was asked to respond to recent criticism from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. “I haven’t talked to the Iranians subsequently about any issue.

'I have not said a word': John Kerry rejects Pompeo's criticism over meetings with Iran officials

Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told CNBC on Thursday that he has not sought to influence Iranian foreign policy since leaving the State Department.

Speaking to CNBC’s Hadley Gamble in Normandy, France on Thursday, Kerry was asked to respond to recent criticism from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Last month, Pompeo described Kerry’s reported conversations with his former Iranian counterpart as “inappropriate.”

“I haven’t talked to the Iranians subsequently about any issue. I’ve only talked with one Iranian once between the decision that was made to pull out,” said Kerry, the unsuccessful 2004 Democratic presidential candidate who became the top U.S. diplomat during President Barack Obama’s second term.

“I saw the foreign minister briefly for a few minutes at the Munich Security Conference. But, I have not said a word subsequently to what they ought to do or not do. It’s not my business.”

When asked to clarify whether there had been any back-channeling, Kerry replied: “No, I haven’t had any back-channel on that issue since the decision was made to move out. And before that it was not a back-channel.”

Kerry said it has been common practice for previous secretaries of state, U.S. senators and many others to continue having public discussions with people “as a matter of being well informed.”

Procter and Gamble wants to redefine the word ‘black’

Procter & Gamble’s “My Black is Beautiful” campaign is asking dictionaries to rethink their definitions of the word “black.” In the section for “black” on Merriam-Webster’s website, for instance, an example of word usage that reads “his face was black with rage” is placed higher on the definition page than any mention of “black” as it pertains to identity or skin color.

Procter and Gamble wants to redefine the word 'black'

Procter & Gamble’s “My Black is Beautiful” campaign is asking dictionaries to rethink their definitions of the word “black.”

“My Black is Beautiful,” a campaign for black women the consumer goods giant formed over a decade ago, says dictionaries too often prioritize terms such as “evil” or “dirty” over those that describe the word as it relates to identity and skin color. The push is called #RedefineBlack and has a petition on DoSomething.org.

P&G’s latest effort joins other recent campaigns in which brands are taking stands on cultural and political issues. Last year, Nike ran a campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick that stirred controversy, and P&G has run campaigns of its own that have sparked conversation, including a Gillette ad that weighed in on the #MeToo movement. And this might be why: Nearly two in three people say they choose, switch, avoid or boycott a brand based on its stand on social issues, according to a 2018 Edelman Earned Brand report.

Lela Coffey, brand director of multicultural beauty at P&G, said “My Black is Beautiful” has always been focused on promoting a more positive perception of blackness and spotlighting bias. When the group started to think about the dictionary definitions, she said they discussed how associating darkness with badness can lead to racial prejudice.

“We talked with some professors about the issue and the effect that words have on people,” Coffey said. “We started to wonder if this was something we could change.”

In the section for “black” on Merriam-Webster’s website, for instance, an example of word usage that reads “his face was black with rage” is placed higher on the definition page than any mention of “black” as it pertains to identity or skin color.

Dictionary.com is already planning to update its definition because of the campaign. The website posted a blog Wednesday explaining that it would be making updates and revisions that will roll out on the website later this year.

“If you look on Dictionary.com today, the adjectival sense of ‘Black’ that refers to people is the third sense on the page, ” it says. “Currently this definition sits right above a definition that reads ‘soiled or stained with dirt.’ While there are no semantic links between these two senses, their proximity on the page can be harmful. It can lead to unconscious associations between this word of identity and a negative term. These are not associations we want anyone to get from Dictionary.com, and so we will be swapping our second and third senses on the page.”

Dictionary.com will also capitalize “Black” in the entry when it’s used in reference to people, which it says is considered a “mark of respect, recognition and pride.” That’s one point Coffey said the organization is asking dictionaries to make, along with updating the entries with references or usage of the word “black” to phrases black people actually use to identify themselves. She gave the example of “Black is beautiful” as one she hopes will be included.

Here’s the one word from Jerome Powell that has people raising their eyebrows

Here's the one word from Jerome Powell that has people raising their eyebrows

Jerome Powell, chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve, speaks during a news conference following a Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting in Washington, D.C., Sept. 26, 2018.

The Fed’s target on inflation is 2%, and the core PCE rate watched by the Fed fell to a surprising 1.6% in the first quarter.

Traders have been speculating that recent weaker inflation readings would concern the Federal Reserve so much that it would cut interest rates later this year. Powell knocked that idea, by explaining that the central bank still sees the weakness as the result of “transitory” factors, such as portfolio management services, lower apparel prices and airfares.

It only took one word from Fed Chair Jerome Powell on inflation to send the markets reeling, and that word was “transitory.”

“We suspect transitory factors may be at work,” Powell said, adding inflation should return to the Fed’s target over time, and then be symmetric around its objective. Powell was commenting at a news briefing, following the Fed’s two-day meeting.

“If we did see inflation running persistently below, that is something the committee would be concerned about and something we would take into account when setting policy,” he said.

Powell said the Fed believes a number of issues were holding back inflation but it’s likely they are transitory like the change in cellphone rates that impacted inflation several years ago. “We’re going to be watching these things carefully to see if that’s the case,” he said.

Treasury yields fell, the dollar strengthened and stocks sold off after Powell’s comment, and also after he described some of the risk factors impacting the economy as moderating.

“Transitory was word of the day,” said Michael Schumacher, director rates at Wells Fargo. “If you look at pricing for fed funds futures for the end of 2019, it moved by about nine basis points. The market is looking a lot more reasonable.”

Before the Fed briefing, the fed funds futures were pricing 25 basis points of easing by December.

Schumacher said the market also reacted to the fact that Powell stressed that the Fed is not moving in either direction at this point, though it sees improvement in the global economy and less threat from risk factors, like trade and Brexit.

“They’re in the middle at this point, not sitting on either end of the teeter totter, which is what they had been telling people, but the market didn’t really believe it,” he said.

Lululemon CEO: The word ‘athleisure’ doesn’t define who we are

Lululemon CEO: The word 'athleisure' doesn't define who we are

Lululemon often gets credited with fueling the so-called athleisure movement in the U.S., as many women don its famous leggings and tops to wear not only to the gym but around town.

So what does its new CEO think of the term?

“I don’t cringe at it, but I don’t think it represents who we are,” Lululemon CEO Calvin McDonald told CNBC’s Sara Eisen Thursday morning.

The yoga-pants maker on Wednesday held its first analyst meeting in five years, laying out a growth plan where it’s targeting annual sales gains of a low-teens percentage rate through 2023. The meeting also marked McDonald’s official debut on Wall Street. He joined Lululemon from LVMH-owned Sephora last year, after Laurent Potdevin was ousted from the CEO role amid misconduct allegations.

Lululemon’s growth strategy includes greater investments in its men’s business, opening more — and bigger — stores both in the U.S. and overseas, and branching into new product categories. Lululemon is going to start selling skin-care products this summer, for example, and it plans to start making its own sneakers.

With these new investments still ahead of it, McDonald said the best is yet to come.

“We are a 20-year-old brand that is showing the best days are still ahead of us,” McDonald said. “Our guest loyalty is above almost any brand I’ve ever seen. … 92% of [our customers] continue to shop us year in and year out.”

He added, “We view Lululemon as an experiential brand versus a lifestyle brand. We are going to test and learn.”

Lululemon shares have surged more than 82% over the past 12 months, compared with the 1.5% growth of the S&P 500 Retail ETF (XRT).

This cafe-owner designed her restaurant to attract Instagram users — and it's working

Cafe-owner Maree Suteja, who is in her 50’s, may well be spending as much time on Instagram as her two social-media obsessed children who are in their 20’s.

For Suteja, Instagram — the Faceboook-owned social media app — is really about the bottom line.

The former school teacher moved from Australia to Bali, Indonesia where she opened Crate Cafe — known as an “Instagrammers paradise” to tourists, expats and locals.

Suteja designed Crate to attract social media users. The bistro has a minimalist, warehouse-inspired ambiance with bright, natural sunlight streaming into the restaurant. There are displays of unique artwork all around and its dishes are presented in a picture-perfect form.

“Anyone can do a bacon and eggs,” she said. “But how do you make it so that any photo you look at, you know it’s a Crate bacon and egg?”

She attributes the majority of her business to customers discovering her restaurant on Instagram.

The restaurant’s Instagram account has amassed more than 47,000 followers and features a combination of food and people posing before they tuck into their meals.

“Instagram goes hand-in-hand with word-of-mouth,” she said. “You see something on Instagram, you’re going to send it someone or tag a friend. It’s that thing about tagging people and that gets the word out.”

“IPOs aren’t just about, ‘Oh, I want to invest in the things I know,'” said Kathleen Smith, principal and manager of IPO ETFs at Renaissance Capital. “It’s about, ‘How do I make money investing in these?”

“It doesn’t do any good to own something when you’re losing money in it.”

In today’s market, chances are that buying in on a newly public stock could be a losing proposition. Financial experts say there are several reasons why.

Warren Buffett's model for aspiring business managers — a retail legend known as 'Mrs. B'

Rose Blumkin was a retail legend — but she was probably more famous as the entrepreneur who billionaire investor Warren Buffett still likes to refer to as a model for aspiring business managers everywhere to follow.

The Berkshire Hathaway chief recalls the late Blumkin as a “marvelous, marvelous woman.” She was born on Dec. 3, 1893, in a Russian village near Minsk and immigrated to America when she was in her 20s.

“She couldn’t speak a word of English” when she arrived in Omaha, Buffett told CNBC’s Becky Quick this week. But Blumkin took a modest investment “and turned it into the largest home furnishings store” in the country, he added.

Blumkin, known as “Mrs. B.,” was in her mid-40s when started Nebraska Furniture Mart in the basement of her husband’s shop in downtown Omaha in 1937 with $500.

Over the next four-plus decades, she turned NFM into a juggernaut that drew Buffett’s attention. In 1983, he bought Blumkin’s store in a $60 million deal that made it part of Berkshire Hathaway.

When personal trainer Kirk Myers moved to New York City in 2010 at age 32, he was starting from scratch.

“My sister gave me $300 because I lost everything I had,” the founder of The Dogpound tells CNBC Make It. He crashed in his brother’s apartment in the city and started finding clients to train.

Over the course of three years, Myers gradually built up his clientele through word of mouth: “I had two clients, then four clients, then eight clients, then 16 clients.”

He even landed Hugh Jackman. “It was a referral through two clients I was training,” says Myers. “They knew his bodyguard. … And so they introduced me and I trained them one time and they liked it, so then they kept booking sessions.”

SpaceX powering Israeli spacecraft in first privately-funded moon mission

An Israeli spacecraft powered by SpaceX rockets will be launched late Thursday in the world’s first privately-funded moon mission.

The spacecraft, named Beresheet — the Hebrew word for “genesis” — will be launched from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida at 8:45 p.m. ET, powered by SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket.

Around 30 minutes after being launched out of the atmosphere, the spacecraft will separate from the rocket.

Beresheet is projected to land on the moon on April 11 after travelling 4 million miles, making it the longest journey to the moon in history.

The spacecraft cost around $100 million to construct — a fraction of the billions spent by governments in similar projects, and the lowest-budget probe ever to be deployed to the moon. Its landing would see Israel become the fourth country in history to reach the moon, after Russia, the U.S., and China.
