It depends a lot on what you're looking for in a logo.
CorelDRAW is a vector program like Adobe's Illustrator, which is commonly used for logo design. Some people swear by Adobe Photoshop because although it's vector tools are weaker, it has other benefits in the raster end of things.
Adobe products tend to be really expensive, though, so if you've already got Corel you're best off using that and saving the money. They results won't be too drastically different.
I mean, you can use MS Paint if you'd really like, or draw it on paper and scan it in.

Jimmy, from the sounds of it, you aren't very serious.
If you truly wanted to start a proper company, you'd put in the appropriate money to hire the proper people and pay them for their investment into the unknown - this sort of spec work is rarely a good solution to find real talent. You get what you pay for, and in this case, that isn't much...
Best of luck, but I would strongly recommend you reconsider your proposition.

I don't see any reason why you couldn't achieve similar results in Sketchbook, but a tablet is highly advised.
If not, draw with good ol' fashioned pens and paper and then scan it.
You can find some excellent drawing tutorials by Spencer Nugent over at IDsketching. It's not necessarily Sketchbook, but drawing is drawing; the program is more personal workflow preference than anything.

Some really good looking work there. I think it may be better if you showed project image sets rather than grouped skills. As we go through a design project we tend to use all of these skills at some point and I think it would be more effective to show this.
Show the sketches, models, CAD and then renders of each project you've done to show off how you can actually use your skills rather than just the fact that you have them.

It seems from the other sketches that you can cover a fairly wide range of styles which is beneficial; everyone has a different look they prefer. If you're going to school for this sort of thing you'll probably pick up that certain professors like certain styles - sometimes you can use this to your advantage.
The perspective on the wheels and things look mostly spot on, but on a few the car body geometry is a little bit lopsided. Minor things, keep sketching and working the little kinks out. You seem to be figuring it out, there is a difference between what I assume are older and newer sketches.
I'd say you're on your way for portfolio pieces. The website might be pruned a bit (taking out older, weaker sketches etc.) and perhaps professionalized (statements like "That's all folks" seem a wee too casual).
Keep sketching, you're on your way.

where you can get ideas? lol
Since you are /want to be a designer, you should know that ideas come from yourself. Others can't give you ideas, if that is what you are asking for. Maybe you need some inspirations??
Generally speaking, chair itself is a pretty big topic, and it is almost impossible to just design a chair without having a story or goal or w/e. Since you said lounge chair, I believe what sketchyd meant was for you to identify where this chair will be in. It could be in a bar, in a club, at home, etc etc. Furthermore, which club and what kind of club, and what kind of people visits these clubs?
It will be much better if you can select a style of environment or even a specific club/bar you want to design for, and that could be your direction.
