Personal finance and travel expert at The Ascent. What are your favorite financial products? Credit cards are my absolute favorite. I prefer travel rewards cards, but I also have some cash-back cards. What piece of money advice would you give your 18-year-old self? Put money into index funds every month so future Lyle is filthy rich and can buy a boat or maybe even an island. Don't pinch pennies. Be willing to spend on quality products and experiences that you really want. What is the nerdiest thing you do in your free time? I read a lot and browse Reddit.
