Permit Finding

I recently have lost my income, which is wuite common nowadays, but I have had an offer to try to find and retirieve as many permits in good locations as possible. The offerer has said they would buy these permits from me as well as cover costs to obtain these permits for a good amount of money.

What is the best approach for me to start acquiring these permits?
Is there a system that can help me obtain permits in areas that are giong to be profitable?
