Should I offer free coaching in the beginning?


Hi, I have recently joined SCS and am very thankful for this wealth of information.
I am launching my coaching business. I have some indecision around whether to offer free coaching in the beginning.

Why I would offer it is: Helping people, get processes down including making sure I understand how to navigate Coach Accountable software, and practice coaching.
Why I would not offer it is: my time is valuable, my clients may not be fully committed for something they haven’t had to buy into.

I realize this is my decision and I need to like my reasons. I would also like to not “reinvent the wheel” so if it is typical (because we know it is beneficial), I would like to commit to offer free coaching to “x” number of clients, and then continue my journey.

Thank you for your input.
