Learning how to invest successfully is a lifetime pursuit. Even seasoned investors have to continually learn what works and what doesn't, often through trial and error. Outside of the classroom, the best way to learn how to invest is to read. You say you're hungry for knowledge, so I suggest you begin with this list. While reading through those books, you should also use Investopedia's Stock Simulator. Finally, think about your network. Do you know anybody who invests? Maybe you know someone who owns property or who has been successful in the stock market. Meet with them and pick their brains. There might even be a group in your area for beginning investors.
Once you build up a solid base of knowledge, you'll start to feel confident in making your own investment decisions. Before you pull the trigger, though, it's probably a good idea to meet with an experienced financial advisor to discuss your ideas. If you want to work with an advisor, make sure you interview several candidates. You want to make sure that you and the advisor are a right match. You're young, and you have plenty of time to learn and invest. Don't stress yourself out about learning, though. Learning is one of the most enjoyable aspects of investing. Good luck!
