Finally...my website is up!

On your website portfolio page, the link to summit leadershipgroup (www.summitleadershipgroup.com) is mis-spelled. The link goes to ".cccom" as opposed to ".com"

As well, the bug looks a bit (paint-ish) to me. I think, for example, if you have a tool like Photoshop or anything other than paint at your disposal, you shouldn't ever have 4 exactly the same diameter spots on a bug that look identical to one another, and that swoosh behind the bug could use a bit of customizing as well in my opinion, it just appears as two repeating shapes (not very unique). I don't know if this opinion will be common with others here but I feel that it applies to someone at your level (who is doing such a variety of professional grade dessigns for paying clients).
Im sorry if I'm being too harsh, but, if you really are planning on doing this professionally, I think these things need to be said and, more importantly, taken into account.

Things to consider are:
1. how complicated the required work is
2. creative brief guielines. Are they requiring illustrative logo which will take much of the time?
3. use of the logo. You might not be aware that your logo did for 3-5 staff company will be published on books/magazine globaly, and can be seen on TV, ads, etc.
3. deadline. Rush project means higher fee, as you'll prioritize this and some projects will be less priority.
4. Revisions... just imagine a $150 logo which will take you 6 months of doing it.
Just my opinion

1) Some sort of about page as pentool suggested. I know zero information about you and your company.
2) A contact page. People might not always see your email/phone number at the top of the page, you need to make it easy for them to contact you. Consider implementing a form.
3) Your pricing. I think you are slaughtering yourself by setting prices in stone like that. From experience I know that websites don't always cost $1000 (there are simple jobs) and some websites are worth well over $1000. Also, what if you have an extremely picky client who requests numerous changes and ideas from you. Is that worth only $150 for weeks of changes? You should really base your prices on a case to case basis.

It would be helpful to add the about and contact info as others have suggested.
Maybe on pricing you could have the minimum and say "starting at."
The $1000 website price seems too high for a minimum relative to the other prices unless you are including services in addition to design.

I think you have a great collection of work. I would prefer to see more case study collections, with the cards and website part of the complete design system in your portfolio. Also, your logos seem much better than the bug log for yourself. There are some really cool designs in there that just need to be collected a little better for my preference. Great work.
I felt to say that i really love that bug logo of shawngearhart's.
