Listener Question: 

Hello! So my mom and others really want to help me make decisions and do the research involved with hiring our vendors and such.  How do I politely tell them when I expect them to do their part?  I'd think that within a couple of days to a week it would be acceptable to check back in for a progress report, but I've been finding that they haven't gotten to that task yet.
