Leader of the Band

I'm in a band. We just got our first pressings of our first album in the mail (funded mostly by myself). This is pretty exciting, except for this : I feel that my singer/principle lyric writer has very little time and continues to ask me if he can "Have Thursday Off" (as though I am his boss), my guitarist is very loyal, but ultimatly doesn't really have a drive to practice and improve. How would you, as a person with the vested interest in the band, encourage these other needed band members and not seem like a control freak in the process? I suppose this goes for any type of business relationship you have with friends who don't have the ability to contribute monetarily.
