Empowered By John Team


John Masiulionis: President of Empowered by John

For over 15 years, John Masiulionis has been helping athletes, authors, coaches, healers, spiritual teachers, singers, and musicians promote their talents and expand their audiences. His ability to highlight the best of what an artist brings to the table is uniquely exceptional. With the power of enthusiasm and determination, John is a seasoned professional at taking ideas and turning them into realities.

In 2002, John teamed up with a small group of his friends to launch Monday Night Mayhem, a successful wrestling radio show that began on 91.3 FM WBNY, which then morphed into one of the first podcasts in the fall of 2004. As host of Monday Night Mayhem, he worked diligently to connect with and spotlight some of the top wrestlers in the world. Monday Night Mayhem’s audience expanded at an astonishing rate, and over time, the show became aligned with the WWE, Impact Wrestling, Ring of Honor, VH1, and even the Buffalo Bills. The show was innovative, exciting, and inspiring to listeners around the world for over a decade.

Through the inspiration of Dr. Wayne Dyer, and after reclaiming his own perfect health, John decided to take his life and his work in a different direction. While his experience with Monday Night Mayhem will always be treasured, John knew it was time to follow his heart and to commit to a path of higher service. In 2013, John co-founded Soul Luminous Radio, a popular health, wellness, and spiritually-themed podcast. The program touched thousands of lives across the globe with inspirational interviews and commentary, specially tailored for those who were awakening. As the the Co-Host of Soul Luminous Radio, John used his authentic networking approach to connect with and promote New York Times best-selling authors (such as Anita Moorjani, Dr. Joe Dispenza, and James Van Praagh), talented musicians (including Paul Cardall and Alex Woodard), and other rising stars.

As both a publicist and a spiritual guide, John understands the challenges that aspiring and rising artists face, as they step out in faith and follow their own paths of service. He uses his networking savvy, well-developed organizational skills, and powerful positive energy to promote and establish name recognition for all of his clients. A true partner in promotion, John empowers his clients with the personal attention and dedicated support they need to fulfill their dreams and expand the reach of their work.


Shannon Marie: Empowered by John PR Assistant 

Her motto: “Being mindful and present sets you free.”

Shannon Marie is small town girl from Victoria Beach, Nova Scotia, growing up beside the Bay of Fundy in Canada.
