Inventor and Entrepreneur Katie Hughes Signs Publishing Deal With CelebrityPress To Release “Women Who Mean Business”

Katie Hughes, inventor and entrepreneur, recently signed a publishing deal with CelebrityPress, a leading business book publishing company, along with other leading experts to release the book, “Women Who Mean Business.

Charlotte, NC – December 9, 2011 – Katie Hughes, creator of Slip-on Dancers™, and a select group of leading businesswomen from around the world have joined together to co-write the forthcoming book titled, Women Who Mean Business. Nick Nanton, Esq. along with business partner, JW Dicks, Esq., recently signed a publishing deal with each of these authors to contribute their expertise to the book, which will be released under their CelebrityPress™ imprint.

Katie Hughes is an inventor and entrepreneur whose creative ideas have built a business with a patent-pending product that protects the knees and joints of over 10,000 dance fitness instructors and their students. While pursuing her PhD in Chemistry from Princeton University, Katie, a certified group fitness instructor with many years of experience teaching multiple class formats, began to teach at a dance fitness class at Princeton.  After several of her students complained about knee pain and expressed their reluctance to buy expensive dance shoes, the idea to create a straight-forward product that solved this problem intrigued Katie.  In 2010, after receiving her PhD and while working fulltime, Katie created Slip-on Dancers™, a product that people in fitness and dance classes could wear over a regular gym shoe to safely spin and pivot on surfaces such as carpet, hardwood and rubber.

Since its introduction to the market, Katie has driven the company to spectacular growth due to creative innovation and targeted marketing.  She effectively uses her scientific background and years of management experience to analyze the business and to focus on creating new products and line extensions for Slip-on Dancers™.  She has been featured in Women’s Entrepreneur Magazine and the Charlotte Business Journal.

Women Who Mean Business, will feature top women in the business world revealing strategies that can help women grow their business, profits and lifestyle.  The book is tentatively scheduled to be released in the spring of 2012.
