yvonnegraberAbout TravelEyez:

TravelEyez is a chic fashion accessory that allows you to store and secure multiple pairs of eyeglasses, sunglasses, reading glasses or a cell phone to a purse, a backpack, luggage handle, diaper bag, stroller, bicycle, gym bag, beach bag – or any other item that has a strap or handle!

This accessory has a unique and patented formula for using colored zippers to create and connect multiple glasses cases. The cases can be used to store and secure most smart phones, car keys, money /credit cards, jewelry, or anything else that the user doesn’t want to keep in a pocket or lose in the bottom of a purse.

TravelEyez cases are made of black lightweight spacer mesh and are accented with six fun colored zippers that can be mixed and matched. The cases come in standard and large sizes and are sold in pairs.

It is the most convenient way to keep your reading glasses at hand, your sunglasses at your fingertips – and your cell phone and accessories from being lost in the abyss of whatever purse or bag you’re carrying!

About TravelEyez Founder Yvonne Graber:

Ever since I was about 13 years old I have always found a way to make money whether it was baby-sitting, crocheting fashion hairpieces, or selling costume/fine jewelry, I was always entrepreneurial. I also had a flair for the arts. I wanted to be an interior designer, so after graduating high school at 16, I applied to the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT).

I was accepted and received my degree in interior design. I worked in the residential field for three years and then was offered an opportunity to enter the children’s fashion world and so it began.

I spent 25 plus years in the garment industry, climbing the corporate ladder to eventually become Director of Manufacturing. I constantly had to prove my value in a male-dominated industry. I traveled all over Central America to manufacturing factories, overseeing production and quality control. Traveling to these remote areas was often difficult and uncomfortable, but necessary. I prevailed, thus gaining the respect of the factory owners and their employees.

As I began to see the future of the garment industry in the United States shrinking, I knew I had to change careers and reinvent myself, finding a new career path where I would not face age or gender discrimination as well as being recession proof. I had some technical savvy and the foresight to begin to focus my energies toward a the growing field of IT. In 2000, I went back to school on the weekends for six months to complete coursework as a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE). To gain experience I took a job doing telephone tech support with wages of $9.00 per hour, from a previous six figure income, it was quite the struggle. I often cried as I drove to work. I worked there for one and half years until, through a friend, I secured a position at IBM as a field technician and worked there for almost two years. I had been working nights for IBM and then during the day I had begun to set the wheels in motion to begin my own business.

I started Computer Community Hospital (CCH) because I knew that I could service clients differently than other companies, since I was not a ‘geek’ or a ‘nerd’. I had been ‘the client’ for many years and was often made to feel stupid by the IT people who were servicing computers for the companies for which I worked. I knew IT service individuals who projected this superior attitude, and I knew that was not what I wanted to do. When I decided to go into the computer business, I promised myself that I would not make people feel stupid, that I would educate them by explaining what they needed to know in terms they would understand.
