States have their similarities and their differences. But some are much better than others, and some are simply not good for this business.
Good states for this business:
New Hampshire Oregon**
New Jersey* Pennsylvania

North Dakota* West Virginia**
*These are states where you you only need a collections license IF you take consumer judgments (I never take those anyway.)
**These are states where you do need a collection agency license, but the requirements are minimal.
