Equestrian grammar lesson for the day. Accept vs Except. They mean completely different things. Make sure you are using them correctly.
Accept = regard favorably or with approval; welcome.
(Accepting new clients= You are taking on new clients.)
Except = not including; other than.
(Excepting new clients = You are not NOT TAKING any new clients nor do you want them and if they contact you, they won’t get anything from you.)
