About TravelEyez

The start of every new product has that ‘Eureka’ moment and the birth of TravelEyez happened when Founder and CEO, Yvonne Graber, lost her reading glasses at the bottom of her purse on too many times.

Always fashion forward, Yvonne would routinely carry several pairs of glasses with her so as to match her outfit or mood throughout the day. In hoping that her glasses did not get lost within her purse, or suitcase while travelling, she would cautiously pack them up in a drawstring bag and tuck them away.

This task became the inspiration to create TravelEyez. Yvonne needed something to hold multiple pairs of glasses that would not be cumbersome, would be easily accessible, and could be added to as needed.

She then discovered it was great for holding a cellphone, jewelry, medicines and so much more. TravelEyez has evolved to be a versatile life accessory for anyone on the go. It’s handy and accessible use is only limited by the imagination. Take a look in our image gallery to see a selection of different ways TravelEyez can be used both at home and when travelling.

Each TravelEyez case can hold a pair of glasses or car keys, money, credit cards, jewelry or smart phone. You can zip cases together to connect as many as you need and attach them to your purse or bag handle to keep your personal items organized and close at hand for easy access. No more juggling your glasses and other small items – store them hands-free and right at your fingertips with TravelEyez.

Yvonne Graber – IT’S HARD TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT!

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 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.

Words of Advice:

Remember you are never too old to start a business…Just think about all the skills you have gained thru your life and take something you are GOOD at…. and see if there is a need for it…that people will pay for…..and the rest can be history! And if you don’t do it you may have regrets later.

Good Luck to all of you who have decided or have thought about reinventing themselves…..

The Creation of TravelEyez

It all started years ago when getting ready to travel. I would pack at least four pairs of reading glasses, along with at least two pairs of sunglasses. I would pack different color pairs of glasses to coordinate with my jewelry and outfits.

In hoping that my glasses did not get lost within my suitcase, I was cautiously packing them up in a drawstring bag and tucking them away. This task became my inspiration to create TravelEyez. I needed something to hold multiple pairs of glasses that would not be cumbersome, would be easily accessible, and could be added to as needed. Then I discovered it was great for holding my cell phone, jewelry, medicines, and when at the beach my husband’s watch – and so much more! My son & daughter love to attach TravelEyez on their kids’ strollers and diaper bags. My girlfriends use TravelEyez on their tennis and gym bags. The husbands use TravelEyez to hold their sunglasses on their golf bags!

I hope you enjoy TravelEyez as much as we do, and that they make your life a little bit easier.
