Offering free coaching

I have not had a paid client, yet. So I want to keep coaching to make sure I keep up my skills so I offer it free to people who I know would like coaching. Having 1-2 per week. I think if I’m not coaching someone I’ll forget. Also, working on my belief in myself and my identity as a coach. I know I keep doubting myself and that leads to not getting pd. clients. I have been asking the question, “why am I choosing to believe this?” I think when I’m in self doubt then I have a lot harder time seeing other optional thoughts. What would be a bridging thought to get me closer to creating clients and making $?

I also, struggle a little with having the same niche as someone else who is already in my mind doing it so well. I know that holds me back too.
